Why hasn't Missouri officially allocated its remaining delegates to Donald Trump yet? He won, didn't he?

    Why do you think that they haven't? – Brythan Apr 3 '16 at 22:59
  • @PhilLello - They have to follow whatever delegate allocation laws they have. Whether or not those laws compel them to allocate delegates anywhere is a separate question, but "common practice" isn't applicable. – Bobson Apr 4 '16 at 2:28
  • @bobson The question appears to presuppose that they have to - and is certainly valid to seek clarification on that. – Phil Lello Apr 4 '16 at 10:13
  • @PhilLello - Fair enough. – Bobson Apr 4 '16 at 11:21

According to the Missouri Republican party, they have awarded Trump 37 delegates and Cruz 15. That's all 52.

Because no candidate won more than 50% of the votes cast, Missouri’s 52 delegates were allocated to the top vote-getter in each Congressional District with a bonus to the top vote-getter statewide.

The following candidates won delegates in Missouri:

Donald Trump: 37 (12 for the statewide win, 5 each for Congressional Districts 1, 2, 3, 6 & 8)

Ted Cruz: 15 (5 each for Congressional Districts 4, 5, and 7)

It says that the Missouri Secretary of State has not certified the results. Perhaps another source is waiting for that to occur.
