BREAKING: Romney wins Wyoming caucuses, CNN projects
Posted by CNN Political Unit
(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has won the Wyoming caucuses, CNN projects.
Based on straw-poll results compiled and released by the Wyoming Republican Party, Romney won 39% of the votes cast in straw polls conducted at county-level caucuses.
Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum came in second with 32% of the straw poll vote, followed by Texas Congressman Ron Paul with 21% and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with 8%.
The delegate count may be closer. Of the 26 delegates at stake, CNN estimates Romney will pick up 10 delegates, while Santorum will take in nine delegates, Paul will receive six, and Gingrich one.
But only 2,000 people participated? Less densely populated state, but still, that's less than what Dr. Paul is regularly attracting at just one campaign rally or townhall these days, dang it!
YES! Beat Grinch, again.o)
But really? 32% for Frothy X( Come on America! Really???
Romney tops Wyoming caucuses

Mitt Romney won Wyoming’s Republican presidential precinct caucuses Wednesday, a non-binding straw poll that gives him a third victory in two days.
The caucuses had been running from Feb. 9 through this week, and with voting finally closed Mr. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, had 39 percent of the 2108 votes cast. That topped former Sen. Rick Santorum’s 32 percent, Rep. Ron Paul’s 21 percent and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s 8 percent.
Delegates selected at the caucuses are not bound to vote for the winners in subsequent county and state conventions, so the actual breakdown of delegates each candidate will win toward the nomination in Tampa in August won’t be known until later.
Reuters have slightly different numbers: 39, 33, 20, 8.
