With the New Hampshire Primary and Super Tuesday now behind us, we explore the rules on how delegates are divided up following primary elections. We discuss what happens to a candidate's delegates if they drop out, how superdelegates decide who to vote for and the impact this may have on each party's chosen nominee this summer.
