Okay, that makes sense if it is write ins for various candidates not on the list but you said it is likely that is the case, can you say
with certainty that that is definitely what it means? (I just have a personal curiosity I'm not demanding you answer me or anything).
Unfortunately, no I can't say that's definitely what I mean - but I do expect SOME of these knuckleheads would have voted for Palin, some likely for
Huckabee with the support shown for him there, and likely some disaffected Johnson supporters.
Trust me, I'm definitely not trying to say there aren't shenanigans going on out there (I remember the 2008 primaries/caucuses, and there was
definitely some questionable activity with procedure and chain-of-control/observation - in NH and a few other specific states, offhand... *sigh*), but
this is a great place for Paul, is easily excusable via the other likely write-ins, and Bachmann's win helps avoid the downplaying of the poll as
well as being explainable by way of her home-court birth advantage and neoconservative tendencies.
Score! I'm very happy with this, actually - an outright win by Paul may have actually been more problematic and easy to dismiss.
