On fairness

The Donald won the New York primary on Tuesday and got almost 100 delegates for his efforts. An interesting little tidbit (h/t Allahpundit):
In fact, Cruz won more votes in the Wisconsin primary — 531,129 — than Trump appears to have won in New York. With 98 percent of precincts counted, Trump has 518,601 votes in his home state. On the other hand, Trump will win at least 90 of New York's 95 delegates to Cruz's zero; in Wisconsin, Cruz's big victory earned him 36 delegates, to Trump's six. 
Is that fair? Doesn't matter. The RNC allocated 99 delegates to New York and only 42 to Wisconsin. Those are the rules. You live by them.
