Show my face suprised.........(@@)
We all knew Newt would lose Nevada, but I was expecting a much larger spread.
Teenage boy and man in blue shirt are distracted by something in shot number 2.
The boy is less circumspect.
I heard Fox say maybe Clark County, results were 50/50 for Newt and Romney and they were “fixing” them. Whatever that means.
“and they were fixing them. Whatever that means”
Yes as in “the fix is in”.
Graphic shows all counties reporting, Newt even won in two of them.
Misreported results? I’m shocked. /s
Pretty girls, like beer, are proof that God loves us, and wants us to be happy.
It's better than the old guy eyeing the joyous boy and both ignoring the pretty blonde.
Don’t forget that fearless precinct clerk in WI who didn’t submit to AP in the time frame THEY demanded and messed up the results. She did it TWICE. Awesome. Maybe some NV people gave it a whirl.
At least someone is enjoying the Romney campaign more than us- I must confess I miss those days when politics was just a concern for the old folks.
Tag, we're it. Cowboy up and put on your big boy boots.
Hmmm, wild result swing in Washoe county.
Earlier shown as a slim win for Newt, now a solid win for Romney.
Result was supposed to be final at 8:00, it is now 9:14 and results are still changing.
And despite what the snarky FNC panel critics said, I thought Newt’s speech a few minutes ago, along with his answers to the press’ questions, was KICK-A$$. He’s a real pro and very in touch with the people. But he’s absolutely right - the Establishment is terrified of a Gingrich presidency.
Could it be the Reid Effect?
Can you up-date it?
Not a bad place to start.
Hell, I'm not sure we need a Federal Government anymore, if they are going to blow off the Constitution.
I got scared around Johnson, and figured it out around Carter, and did whatever the hell I wanted from then on.
Sauce for the goose is good for goosing the gander, or something like that.
Except for the excesses in fedgov reactions, I don't even consider them anymore.
I do care about Texas, and my County.
It updates automatically, just revisit occasionally or leave it up until the full tally is posted.
It's been at that figure for about an hour. I'm giving up waiting and will see the results in the morning.
Your link is not updating. See mine. Clark and Lander counties are the only two not complete.
See #21. That gives the time and is updated. The votes are not complete in two counties.
It updated while I was looking, so it does update, perhaps not as often.
Both links have the same information — Clark County is only showing about 3% reporting and Lander has 44%.
Same info. Clark hasn't updated in over 2 1/2 hours.
I went to the evening caucus at the Adelson Campus, a Jewish center, specially set up for people that observe a Sat. sabbath, as myself. I went alone and didn’t know anyone, but I can tell you that I heard several times that people had been turned away from several caucus locations earlier in the day and were unable to vote, thus some had come to the evening caucus. There were a number of people upset about this. People voting were required to sign an affidavit that they could not vote earlier because of religious beliefs.
The caucus went overwhelmingly to Paul. I thought Newt took second. Romney and Santorum both seemed liked real yawns from the audience. I don’t know the vote counts, but this is just my observation from the people that spoke up for their chosen candidate. The local news reported Romney came in second only a few minutes after I got home and I was surprised they could count the votes so fast, so I question that assertion. Several people spoke up for Newt- mostly in general terms. So many people wanted to speak up about Paul, they finally had to move on. The people that spoke up about Paul for the most part were well versed on him, his politics and track record. I think only 2 people spoke up for Romney with nothing of real substance and 2 for Santorum citing him being a Christian. I’m trying to make my report as unbiased as possible. I would have liked to have stayed till the end of the vote count, but just couldn’t.
As a side issue, there was a disruptor at the start of registration yelling loudly that it was an illegal vote. It got very close to becoming a violent confrontation and took quite a while to get under control. I kept my nose in my Mahjong game on my Kindle off to the side.
That was in my caucus.
I have now spoken with quite a few friends that caucused other places and were having the same problems.
As I said on another thread, I now see how Obama beat Hillary!!
Mormons may not be a majority here in Clark, but they were pretty much the majority that showed up to caucus.
Republican Party responds to reports of caucus chaos
Evening caucus gets ugly at Adelson school
This is the last caucus in Nevada. They are re-evaluating the whole process and it looks as though it may go to a regular primary ballot controlled by the state. To me the caucuses are far too ripe for fraud. They were created a long time ago when integrity was king and the current vote buying going on does nobody any favors except for the buyer. Certainly the people are the losers. Iowa is a prime example.
You know, that does not surprise me one bit. I see a lot of Paul and Newt people all over the place, but I hardly see any Romney voters.
Romney only seems to be popular in the Media. It’s like this whole dam thing is rigged.
In the light of the Sharon Angle - Harry Reid debacle, I’d say Nevada politics is on the order of Chicago politics.
Throw in Pelosi’s crooked northern California and you have a Troika of evil that rules us from Cronytown. (Washington, D.C.)
Clark is now reporting almost half of their total.
The result is skewing further in favor of Romney as the Clark totals come in.
He is now at 47%, near the 50% he really needed to look like a winner.
This is almost entirely due to Clark County, earlier returns had him at only about 10% over Gingrich, now closer to 50%!
Leaves me thinking dark thoughts about trading Clark to Kalifornia for their northern third.
Do they bet on elections in Vegas?!
