Skip to comments.'None of the Above' Wins Dem Primary for Governor in Nevada

An upset last night in the Democrat primary for governor of Nevada was almost as stunning as the Brat win in VA-7.
"None of the Above" won with 29.96% of the vote. Nevada was the first state to institute a none of the above line to its ballot in 1975, as a way for voters to protest weak, unqualified candidates.

A vote to ABSTAIN is a great idea!
OH NO!!!!! It was a vote for OBAMAAAA!!!!!!
“f they can help choose None Of The Above for a Gubernatorial Candidate....could it be POSSIBLE that they might at some point be able to Nominate” “None Of The Above “ as their U.S SENATE Candidate??
I’d take “none of the above” before I’d accept Reid.
OK, Nevada Freepers. Tell us what this means. Is the Democrat Party able to fill the nomination line with some committee assignment? Or does ‘None of the Above’ automatically take up their line in the General Election?
“Since “none of the above” can’t win under state law, virtual unknown, Goodman will be the nominee.”
What is the use of having a “none of the above” selection if you give the nominee to the next candidate? None of the above is a rejection of ALL of them therefore none of them should win.
If “None of the above” receives 50 % plus one vote, than none of the names on the ballot can be placed on the next ballot, IMHO, of course.
“none of the above” means a smoky back room deal from the Ruling Class. Although now the smoke isn’t from cigars....
Guess that means no opponent for the Republican candidate then.
Will “Monty” Brewster please pick up the black courtesy phone? “Monty” Brewster ...
“A vote to ABSTAIN is a great idea!”
It would be if the office could actually go unfilled. The nomination is going to the runner-up, the “none of the above” is simply a feel good protest vote. If a candidate remembers to vote for himself and the entire electorate besides the candidate votes “none of the above” the greedy little statist politician is still getting into office.
That’s really not too far removed from communist “elections”, we just bother throwing another party in the mix to give people the illusion of choice and representation.
Much better if the polity could actually vote to leave an office unfilled. We might actually see decent voter turnouts if the public could vote “Leave me the **** alone!”.
According to the article, "none of the above" cannot "win". Thus, the 2nd place finisher -- an unknown named Robert Goodman will be the nominee.
More of this needs to happen.
None of These Candidates cannot win under State law. So “Second to None” gets to go on to the general election.
“I’m Robert Goodman and I approve this commercial, and at least I am better than nothing. Or worse, truth be told”
