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

By Stephen Dinan
The Washington Times
Wednesday, February 29, 2012

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.

Romney wins Republican caucus in Wyoming: report

WASHINGTON | Wed Feb 29, 2012 11:44pm EST

(Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney won his party's caucus in Wyoming, CNN reported on Wednesday after the last of straw polls in the thinly populated mountain state.

CNN quoted the Wyoming Republican Party as saying Romney emerged from a month-long series of county-level straw polls with 39 percent of the votes cast.

The cable network said former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania came in second with 33 percent of the straw-poll vote. Congressman Ron Paul of Texas followed with 20 percent and Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, came in fourth with 8 percent...

Ron Paul defies predictions,

Ron Paul defies predictions, scores six delegates in Wyoming caucus

The 2012 Ron Paul for President Campaign released the following statement:
2012 Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul gained six delegates as a result of winning 21 percent of the vote in the Wyoming caucus.
The end result of the contest is that if the next stage of the Wyoming nominating process goes as planned, Dr. Paul will take at least six of the 26 delegates tied to the caucus process with him to the Republican National Convention.

Caucusing in the state occurred between February 9th and 29th. The vote total of 439 votes cast for Ron Paul out of 2,108 total votes cast was especially notable in that the Paul campaign had no paid staff on the ground in Wyoming. In addition, the organization purchased no advertising and held no events, yet the candidate and campaign have stunned establishment expectations by winning five of 23 counties.
Also notable is that Ron Paul received more than two and a half times the vote total of would-be Republican frontrunner Newt Gingrich, once considered one of the “two” in a “two man race.”

“Ron Paul winning six delegates in Wyoming using few resources is an extraordinary outcome and it affirms that our delegate-attainment strategy can help Dr. Paul secure the Republican nomination,” said Ron Paul 2012 National Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton.

“The race to see who will face President Obama in a head-to-head matchup, a scenario that best favors Paul, is a 50-state one and ours is one of only two campaigns with the stamina, organization, and resources to get to Tampa on the way to the White House,” said Mr. Benton, referring to the site of the Republican National Convention and to Mitt Romney.

County conventions started voting Tuesday

With 30% completed (they end Saturday I believe), it's not looking very good:

Romney 54% (297)
Santorum 29% (161)
Paul 3% (16)
Uncommitted 14% (79)

Only precinct chairs vote, unlike in the straw poll, so this is a very establishment-driven process.

Even so, Paul won one delegate so far from Weston county.

Ron Paul could have won this, look at the vote totals.

Romney: 822
Santorum: 673
Paul: 439
Gingrich: 165

ZERO delegates have been awarded, pledged or allocated

ZERO FOR ANYONE.

That happens at the state convention in WY.

Don't mislead. Know the FACTS.

Wyoming PC's?

According to http://www.thegreenpapers.com/P12/WY-R , from March 6th through March 10th, the County Conventions meet over several days to choose 12 of 29 of Wyoming's delegates to the Republican National Convention. Approximately 980 (?) County precinct committeemen and women, who were elected in Wyoming's 17 August 2010 (biennial) primary election, are eligible to vote for the National Convention Delegates and Alternates at the County Conventions.

My question is: how many of those PC's -- FROM 2010!!! -- are Ron Paul supporters? And is there a way for ANY new people to get in to vote for delegates?

One caveat: At http://trib.com/news/opinion/blogs/capitol/how-the-wyoming-g... it says "Any registered Republican can attend to elect county convention delegates and vote in a non-binding presidential straw poll." So, could Paul supporters elect Paul supporters to the County Convention, and those delegates get to vote for National Convention Delegates & Alternates?

County conventioneers will also elect delegates to the state convention, where 17 more National Delegates will be elected. Do you have to be PCs at State to vote? Or just at County? Or not at all?

Convoluted. I'd like to know if Paul's strategy of winning ACTUAL delegate slots in non-bound States will be working in Wyoming.

Is Wyoming getting penalized? Is the caucus over or ongoing?

http://trib.com/news/opinion/blogs/capitol/article_9729132e-...

Who knows. This has been such a mess even I cannot follow it.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

seems like

it's 'non-binding'-ish beauty contest, then successive local and state convention process, like other caucus states:

"Republicans will also hold a non-binding presidential straw poll during precinct caucuses, which will be held between 10-25 days before the county convention, Hooper said."

personally, I prefer the caucus process over primaries as a far better, more open process for internal party politics.

That is, IF they can make sure that there are independent central tabulation comparison of those votecount being 'called out' from individual precinct levels to the party HQ central tabulation, which is the only place where votes CAN be, and HAVE been stolen, or be manipulated, as IA, NV, ME clearly indicated.

So, as long as the delegate selection rules are clear, and no ex post facto crap is pulled to specifically target R3VOLution, it'd be a much more honest process.

hate those trashy headline meme-ing Leprechaun monkeys!

it's like 'oops, sorry we sent out a headline that says you were convicted of murder, when we really meant to say it was someone else.'

then, in the 500 channel, 1gazillion web-page era, NO ONE pays attention to retraction anymore, other than politicos and political junkies, or activists. hell, they rarely post retractions these days, anyway.

as if it's an unknown sentiment here, but in case I didn't get to state the obvious this early morning: god how I hate these MSM muthafrakkin' despicable pressitutes!

arghghghg!

okie dokie, now that I got that off my chest; just tweeted Chris Good to fix it.
