Delegate Count: MSM Gets it Wrong Again

Ron Paul came in #2 in the Nevada Presidential preference primary, with 14%, just ahead of McCain.

However, the important vote today in Nevada was for delegates to the state convention.

CNN and AP are incorrectly reporting national delegate counts based on the presidential poll, which is non-binding.

No national delegates have been chosen or allocated for Nevada. According to Tony Rosa, the nation's leading authority on state primary rules:

As with Iowa, the Nevada GOP Precinct caucuses are electing delegates to the County Conventions. That is all. No national delegates are allocated in today's caucuses. If the Nevada GOP were electing delegates to the national convention, they would have been penalized as were WY, NH, MI, SC, and FL. The March 5 county conventions will elect delegates to the April 26 state convention. Only then are the national convention delegates are elected.

Delegates elected today were unpledged. According to early reports, the Ron Paul delegate candidates did much better than the 13% received by Paul in the poll. In many precincts, Paul delegates WON OUTRIGHT MAJORITIES. The campaign is currently compiling precinct reports from around the state, but that may take a few days.

Don't tell anybody, Ron Paul knows this. Maybe this is one of his strategies, few people know about electing delegates, but RP supporters are well informed and stay for this. Ron Paul will surprise a lot of people with number of delegates.

THIS SHOULD BE POSTED ON HQ MAIN WEBSITE!

Why is it not?

This is important info. We

This is important info. We could win this thing just with a delegate strategy. Anyone have a breakdown of how state primaries generally work. Are they bound to the popular vote?

The Media Were Right

I heard somebody say that Nevada would go to the candidates with an organization. Looks like we were organized.

Now this makes sense.

I was wondering how the total deligates were split. Now we have to keep our eye on the prize.

a VERY successful day

Based on the reports I've seen from fellow caucus attendees here in Nevada, I'd say that we probably have at least 1/3 of the delegates to the county conventions, if not more. The key now is just to get everyone to show up to the convention. This was a very successful day on many fronts for RP in Nevada.
