(I thought Nevada was rediculous, until the Pennsylvania primary ):
Check out these numbers (CNN official results):
# of voters who voted for RP in Nevada:
2008: 6084 2012:6175 (+91 voters)
#of voters who voted for RP in Pennsylvania:
2008:129,323 2012: 105,340 (-23,983 voters)
I was going to post more anomolies, but Ron Paul has consistently doubled his support in the vast majority of primary and caucus states. The campaign should be up in arms for the GOP telling them that after all of the activism and new registrations, they lost 23, 983 voters this cycle. The 129, 323 who voted in 2008 for RP did not need to reregister and knowing many RP supporters, I know that the excitement was much heavier in 2012 than 2008.
