How?

I've lived in California most of my life, since I was 3, I know a lot of people here from every background. I don't know 1 (one) single person that thinks Mitt Romney is even a decent person, let alone would be a good President. My parents are lifelong Republicans and would burn in hell before they would vote for Mitt. So according to the results everyone I know plus maybe a 3000 more voted for Ron Paul?

Most people I know don't even care about politics and still made it a point to vote for Ron Paul.

Something is very very wrong.

I live in Sacramento.

I have NOT seen one Romney yard sign or bumper sticker and probably 30+ of such signs for Ron Paul in the last month. And yet Romney wins this county with 70% of the vote???

YEAH RIGHT!

On a good note. When I was at

On a good note. When I was at the polling place today I made a remark when I was leaving. I said "Ron Paul all the way!" A senior citizen lady that was an election employee said "Yeah thats what I think too" and then she looked around to see if any of the other employees saw her say that lol! So this bs that its the 60+ crowd voting for Romney is worthless.

I know quite a few of us here on DP are over 55.

We have spouses and friends in our age group. I am in my 60s. You better believe there are a whole lot more of us not on DP who support Ron Paul. I personally know college kids and guys in their 70s and 80s who support Ron Paul. The brush fires continue to keep on burning.

I'm 55 and I don't know a soul who supports Romney...

...not a soul...perhaps my father as he liked Gingrich when last I spoke to him...I dunno...but now you know why I don't talk to him much...we never could find common ground. ;-)

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

a mix of sheeple and vote

a mix of sheeple and vote rigging. Don't worry about it, it's a game of collecting delegates and electing liberty minded people to every other level of government. Did you vote for your liberty candidates today along with Ron Paul?

Sorry Honey. America knows

Sorry Honey. America knows how you feel. This is how all the other states have felt. We get our hopes up, never meet a Romney fan, low voter turnout, then our hopes are destroyed & we are confused by the results. The results are rigged. That's why we were pushing exit polls so hard on here so we can prove it.

How? As mentioned below - the

How? As mentioned below - the 60 and older crowd that's how. Easily the highest voter turnout and the lowest support of Paul - not a good combo.

Nope

This is regurgitated meme and would only be supported if the conventions mirrored this involvement as these are the very same people the meme would have to see attending conventions and taking up space...like they always have when Prez Time rolls around.

They didn't. Why? Because they don't exist...not in the Romney Camp.

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

Puzzling

South Dakota might be the most visible case of this. It was a strong Paul stronghold. How Romney got that much is beyond belief. It's also strange that ever since Santorum and Gingrich dropped out, there seems to be a pattern in the results.
Romney -- 74% (+/- 10%)
Paul -- 11% (+/- 5%)
Santorum -- 10% (+/- 5%)
Gingrich -- 5% (+/- 2%)
I'm not one to cry foul right away, but it surely looks like it's just completely pre-chosen for us.

Side note: Same thing happened for me in Indiana way back when...heavy Santorum here, but I don't know of 1 person who was going to vote Romney. They were all going to "protest" vote Santorum or switch over to Paul. Sadly, some of those people "protesting" were family members. Any advice on switching his mind? I've gotten nowhere this year...ages of 50-60, hate Obamneycare, for smaller federal government (taxes), believe in large federal government (foreign policy, drones, Patriot Act, NDAA, TSA). Say they don't disagree with Ron Paul a lot (LOL?), but they will never vote for him because of his foreign policy (military veterans for 20+ years). However, they don't agree with the prolonged Iraq/Afghanistan wars but say they were necessary initially.

His foreign policy is to

His foreign policy is to follow the US Constitution, tell them to vote for Paul to show their support for the Constitution! They support that right?

My friend worked a poll station in SD

and said only about one hundred people turned out to vote.

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Same percentage

The same percentage as the other primaries across the country. I thought Ron Paul would have at least had higher percentages in Texas and New Mexico. I agree, something is very wrong.

Surfexplorer

sorry to say, most adults are still plugged into the hive

and, in my voting place, anyway, i was easily the only one under 40 voting.

65+ Age Group

I bet they were like 95% for Romney...And they all vote. Sad but true.

Ron Paul does great with people under 50.

I would not doubt this. I do

I would not doubt this. I do not know of a single Romney voter, but...

Considering that younger people use the interwebs more frequently, the data here might be a little skewed. I do not run across many people in the 65+ age bracket. When I do the topic of conversation is not generally politics.

Someone voted this thread down after I voted it up

I smell Mitt troll smell...

I voted it up

My district has a population of just over 7K, and 279, not including absentee voted.. total 48 Republicans.

I am praying: RON PAUL

Do you have

electric voting machines in California?

Yes, rigged voting machines are used exclusively

Surprised?
