I totally discount the online voting fomr this event. That Ron Paul came in third is all you need to know.
But in the live onsite voting Huckabee won.
Yes, I know, with that massive voter turn out he's on fire, some what like a wet bottle rocket.
We don’t know that. We know that of those who waited to vote until they got to the conference, Huckabee won. Romney told his people to vote online, so maybe a lot of conference attendees voted for Romney online.
3000 people attended the conference, and Huckabee got 488 of those votes. We don’t know how many huckabee online votes showed up at the conference.
In fact, it kind of breaks the rules to separately publish the “on-site” votes. I’m sure that if Romney had known they would do that, he would have told his supporters who were going to be sure to vote ON SITE instead of online. But they didn’t, because they didn’t know someone would push to release the on-site vote count.
