compare results.

I wouldn't do that to stay consistent.

The CNN site shows him at 47 votes right now with 100% reporting. (Same as the Google site, but still, be consistent)

Now, there is something wrong with the earlier CNN results, because the 64% reporting where he has 43 votes has a time stamp of 6:33pm ET

But the 43% reporting popout graphic, where he has 132 votes, has a LATER time stamp of 9:21pm ET.

(the final results have a time stamp of 9:46pm ET)

So presumably, following the time stamps, Paul's votes went from 43 to 132, then down to 47.

Clearly, the 64% reporting was either erroneous or the 43% was as it is impossible to have less reporting at a later time.

However, the problems don't end with Paul.

Each candidate's numbers are all over the map across those time stamps:

Gingrich 289 - 192 - 489
Santorum 238 - 156 - 389
Romney 268 - 169 - 468
Paul 43 - 132 - 47
Total 838 - 649 - 1393

No matter how you slice it, the 132 came sometime before the final 47.

According to the time stamps, they took votes away from the other three and gave some, but not all to Paul. (that doesn't make sense)

If the time stamps are wrong, but the reporting percentages are correct, then it makes more sense as then they took votes from Paul, no one else, and then all candidates picked up more votes, Paul getting the least.

Using the time stamps then we get this:

Santorum 289 -> 192 (loss!! of 33.56%) -> 489 (gain of 154.69%)
Gingrich 238 -> 156 (loss!! of 34.45%) -> 389 (gain of 149.36%)
Romney 268 -> 169 (loss!! of 36.94%) -> 468 (gain of 176.92%)
Paul 43 -> 132 (gain of 206.98%) -> 47 (loss!! of 64.39%)
Total 838 -> 649 (loss!! of 22.55%) -> 1393 (gain of 114.64%)

Using the percent reporting we get this:

Santorum 192 -> 289 (gain of 50.52%) -> 489 (gain of 69.20%)
Gingrich 156 -> 238 (gain of 52.56%) -> 389 (gain of 63.45%)
Romney 169 -> 268 (gain of 58.58%) -> 468 (gain of 74.63%)
Paul 132 -> 43 (loss!! of 67.42) -> 47 (gain of 9.30%)
Total 649 -> 838 (gain of 29.12%) -> 1393 (gain of 66.23%)

We all know as MORE votes are counted, it is IMPOSSIBLE to LOSE votes. You can drop in percentage, because you aren't rising as fast, but you can't have less votes than before.

Clearly, these results at some point are erroneous.

While I'd say the second version is more likely to happen (all candidates should be increasing their votes, though not necessarily all by higher and higher percentages) however, TIME STAMPS are not likely to be "fudged" as easily. Really, there would be no reason to fudge them unless you wanted to show lower vote totals having an EARLIER time stamp, rather than the normal later one.

So what we see here is that CNN reported LOWER vote totals for ALL candidates at a LATER time stamp.

THEN, they increased everyone's totals 15 minutes later to a final tally, but only increasing Paul's amount by a mere 9.3% while increasing the others north of 63% each.

It is obvious, that high shenanigans are going on. And it may not be CNN. This is more likely just reporting of numbers from the State. Thus THEY are the ones to go after on this.
