Plurality. In how many states did Ron Paul get more votes then Romney ?Submitted by lolly on Fri, 08/24/2012 - 03:43
If Ron Paul got more votes in 5 states then Romney, then Ron Paul got the plurality in those states, since the other candidates dropped out.
See the definition of "plurality"
Ron Paul got more vote then Romney in North Dakota. So North Dakota should be included in his "plurality". Paul got 3186 vote in North Dakota and Romney got 2691 votes. So between the two candidates left, Ron Paul got the majority of the votes or the plurality between Romney and Paul. Also, Ron Paul won the Virgin Islands. And Ron Paul got more votes then Romney in Minnesota. Paul got 13,282 . Romney got 8240. So North Dakota should be added unto Ron Paul's plurality. The Virgin Islands is not a state so I do not know if that can be added as part of the plurality.
