"A FiveThirtyEight analysis of the dozen highest vote differentials within district-level Trump slates reveals a startling pattern: In all 12 cases, the highest vote-getting candidate had a common, Anglo-sounding name. But a majority of the trailing candidates had first or last names most commonly associated with Asian, Hispanic or African-American heritages. Of the 54 Trump delegate candidates in the state, two of the three worst-trailing candidates were the only two Trump candidates with Middle Eastern-sounding names." [http://fivethirtyeight.com...]

This, in fact, may have cost him some delegates overall. Thoughts? Comments? Reactions?

"Each campaign files slates of relatively unknown supporters to run for delegate slots, and each would-be delegate"s presidential preference is listed beside his or her name."

Why would they set it up like this?
