How is this possible??

How does he get 4%? I mean when you look at the map in Mississippi, theres big counties where he gets only 2%..wtf

This is a joke...

I have no doubt in my mind either this is obvious manipulation or Mississippi shouldnt be allowed to vote because they are dumber than a doornail

It is the latter

Mississippi is traditionally ranked one of the dumbest states in the union and it has been ranked the fattest for six straight years. It's pretty much a dumb,fat place. Great blues though.

I had to vote that up one

Not because I want to disrespect anyone but because that has got to be the funniest comment in DP history!

That takes the cake.

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

The cake is a lie!

The cake is a lie!

Some counties that border LA

Paul got no votes in LOL. this has got to be a joke. Go look at Issaquena and Jefferson county along the border of Louisiana. Rick Perry came in 4th with 1 vote..

I feel like this is a bad dream or something....I thought Paul had a chance in LA, but i guess not, wow..

Stop making these topics

I suggest that daily Paul stop making these topics!! We need to stop sending people to these websites if Paul supporters want to keep watching vote/election fraud let them find their own way to the corruption!

It brings people down and we should not be linking to these pages to see the three stooges being in the spotlight!! When all the do is copy Ron Paul's message when it suits them and so on!!!

Ron Paul cannot win the msm

Ron Paul cannot win the msm GOP nomination! So why even expect it! He can win we the people GOP nomination and that only happens at the conventions! We need to spend more effort and time reporting delegates and sending Ron Paul supported in to represent the people. These beauty contest and msm are fixed to keep Ron Paul from winning and being in the spot light!

Final Delegate Allocation

The Hawai’i State GOP Rules and the RNC December Memo differ about whether there is a 15% threshold to receive delegates in the state. Here’s the final delegate allocations for each scenario:

Without 15% threshold:

Paul:4
Romney:7
Santorum:5
Gingrich:1

With 15% threshold:

Paul:3
Romney:9
Santorum:5
Gingrich:0

Remember, no ninja strategy here. Delegates are chosen directly be the campaign. Only through improper vetting by other campaigns and a second round at Tampa can these numbers be overridden. We also have the issue of the provisional ballots that could change everything, though.

Alternates

Alternates need to show up. I am willing to bet that the delegates in any of these delegations would rather have a full slate of delegates from Hawaii (in order to compete with California and the rest), than they care about which candidate that delegate prefers.

The presidential nomination is not the only thing they vote on.

That means, Ron Paul supporting delegates can be seated as alternates to replace others who don't show up for the other campaigns.

15%?

Without 15% threshold:

With 15% threshold:

Gingrich:0

Remember, no ninja strategy here. Delegates are chosen directly be the campaign. Only through improper vetting by other campaigns and a second round at Tampa can these numbers be overridden. We also have the issue of the provisional ballots that could change everything, though. These numbers are accurate up to 39/45 precincts reporting.

Jeremy, do you know the vote totals

from Hawaii 2008? thanks

I'm sure they could be found.

I'm sure they could be found. Do you want numbers or delegates or something else?

the popular vote count, if you could

find it, thank you.

Confusion Understood

I understand now why you asked. They kept no record of it. It would have to be something researched locally, I assume, if you are going to get any answer at all. Sorry :(

thanks

:

You have 2 delegates more in

You have 2 delegates more in second calculation !

Too tired, lol

Sorry, for with the threshold it should be:

Paul:3
Romney:9
Santorum:5
Gingrich:0

Paul and Gingrich both lose 1 to Romney.

Numbers are accurate through 41/45 precincts reporting.

Damn, bring back the old

Damn, bring back the old numbers :)

Delegate Count at 39 precincts

Paul: 2AL 2CD = 4
Romney: 5AL 2CD = 7
Santorum: 3AL 2CD = 5
Gingrich: 1AL 0CD = 1

Google Numbers Don't Add Up.

The nunbers on the islands on the map don't add up to the numbers shown on the left column. Not sayin' I'm surprised. I'm just sayin'

Now it's about the Constitution and the fight to defend it.

Kauai 44% Maui 30% Hawaii

Kauai 44%
Maui 30%
Hawaii 33%
Honolulu 12% <---- WTF

Romney getting over 50% of the vote in the County

Real sad...

Honolulu

I kinda expected that from Honolulu. All the way establishment. However, Paul has carried 70% of the state.
Most hawaiians don’t participate in voting. They don’’t consider the USA as their government and I can’t blame them. They see them as an occupier of their lands. Another illegal occupation. Some call it the state that never was. All ballots are paper ballots as well. No Deibold machines.

"Give me liberty or give me death!" Patrick Henry

We should be able to get a

We should be able to get a count of the number of provisional ballots tomorrow. All we should need to do is ask.

ask

Please ask and report back. Always good to have a number as soon as possible and see if it matches in the end. Besides it being a curiosity.

You're right that's genius!

Oh man, why didn't I think of that? Silly me. Gosh oh mighty...

A "count" does not equal a publicly observed tally.

A count says how many there are, not who they are for.

But you knew that already, which is why you chose to say count and not a report on the results, right?

Go back to where you were a week and 3 days ago "Jeremy Faulk".

NO MORE LIES. Ron Paul 2012.

You're right. I apologize.

You're right. I apologize.

Don't apologize

Just get the hell off the DP clown.

NO MORE LIES. Ron Paul 2012.

The odds are pretty high that

The odds are pretty high that "Jeremy Faulk" is likely a plant on the DP. We'll see if other true-blue Daily Paulers agree by morning. "Jeremy Faulk" isn't alone here, either. ;)
