Friday’s p-Op quiz: ‘Delegate math’ edition

Let’s see. There were Republican primaries in which the “inevitable” nominee came in third in two contests. But because he still won more delegates than the fellas he lost to, he can still crow that the delegate math is on his side. Whether he gets to Tampa with the required 1,144 committed delegates is another matter. Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden didn’t let that stop him from getting the general election underway by hammering all three in Ohio yesterday. Oh, and there was that state dinner for the British prime minister.

Quite a bit more happened, but there’s only so much I can fit on the p-Op quiz. So, sharpen your pixels and get crackin’.
