American politics, mate, FTPT State by State Winner Take All kicks in April and holds for the majority of the delegates.

Seriously, the reason for proportional representation in the early states is to provide an incentive to refrain from moving front loading all the primaries.

That is, proportional representation in these first three months is a punishment for going early.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
