Paul vs. Romney in Hand Counted Towns 26% vs 32%Submitted by RussellMeansFan on Wed, 01/11/2012 - 20:14
I just calculated the percentages of the six "major" candidates in the towns that do a hand count. I got the list of towns from watchthevote2012.com. There was about 37,000 votes. There is more but I didn't have access to the write-ins and the lesser known candidates but I think it is negligible. A few towns didn't report but what I have is Ron Paul at 26% and Mitt Romney at 32%. I'm not assuming that those percentages would hold up across the state. The big cities probably voted for more of the big-government candidates. But the spread is much closer than the state wide results. Does anyone know of anyone else who did a similiar analysis? I'm sure I made some mistakes.
