This is interesting. He claims he is 100% certain that Romney's vote count is off by 20. He said he hopes that it was an honest mistake when it was typed in.



"I talked to Appanoose County officials and their numbers matched mine," True said by telephone Thursday night. "It's the state's numbers that don't match."

Wow. Imagine if they are shown to be wrong once, this pretty much proves how incompetent they are, or that they INDEED IS DOING FRAUDULENT MANIPULATION OF THE SYSTEM!!

It is proof like this that may be the game changer people!

Damn those biased republican vote counter-manipulators.

I also put the possibility of discrepancies, on the shoulders of CNN and Fox news with their rush to predict the winners in elections.

In a State like Iowa, where the votes are hand counted by small groups of volunteers, the pressure of the camera teams hanging over them like vultures, I'm sure put a lot of pressure on them.

Mistakes are made when all is done in haste.

Looks like there needs to be a recount with outsiders present.

When Ron Paul is President, hopefully we will never have to hear of CNN, FOX or any other government controlled MSM news again.

This was not a precinct with cameras from CNN in it, there are over 1700 vote locations and only 4-5 had the reporters in them filming. That was a very small sample, pretty much orchestrated to look as legit as possible to the viewers, while the manipulators are free to roam in the other locations, where a chance of getting cought are much smaller. Also they probably hand-picked those precincts with the most evangelicals in them for the tv-showings, as to give viewers the impressions that Romney/Santorum where much more popular than Ron Paul from the get-go. They knew they would get the most votes in those small precincts from the start, basically.

They'll probably announce the winner they want early when folks are still deciding. When it turns out to be wrong, they will apologize later when it no longer matters and say they were fed bad intel or something stupid.

You got my SF for having the only reasonable political thread that wasn't about the candidates but the process. no conspiracy here maybe.

Like your source says its not the end of the world for Mit by no means it actually helps because Iowa is notorious for not picking the eventual winner of a primary.

Are you from Iowa how do you feel about it give us something about what you think so we can sink are teeth in it.

I think this is a null issue...only because Iowa does not have a recount!

What is done is done...maybe there is some legal action that could be taken...but other than that...it's a issue that can't be rectified!

I am from Iowa I think it is gonna make our state look silly if they do announce that the votes were wrong. It will be interesting to see what happens if they do say that it was an error and Santorum actually won.

There is no recount process for the Iowa Caucus.

It is a non binding preference poll...it really means nothing other than a media win.

Santorum coming as close as he did is just as good as a win for him.

At this point...the results will stand...because you can't tell who is lying...it could be the county officials that want Santorum to win who are trying to change the vote...no one knows...and that is why there will be no recount.

Null yes but was it a mistake or a connnnnnspiracy!

who benefits Rick,Mit,Nit,or Barry that's the real issue I believe this is how the system works how can the Bosses nudge the people into the right mind set in this country.

Really???

Ron Paul is going to shut down private companies???


For someone who claims they support someone who is all for the rights of the people...you have some twisted views of what that means.

I'm glad this guy did a little squawking about the discrepancy and I hope it is duly noted in the media so maybe, just maybe, the next person thinking about trying to fudge the numbers gets a little paranoid about those thoughts and doesn't attempt it.

It's one of those..."what are you going to do about it now" things...with no recount...what do you purpose Ron Paul (or any other candidate) do now?

Conspiracy...well we are still trying to figure out what happened to Kennedy...are you thinking this should go a bit faster?

Then the process needs to change.

Why?

It's a meaningless poll except for the media telling you it means something.

Do you trust the media? If not...why do you care who won a preference poll in a small state???

Not at all i just like politics that they can't do any thing about it and I don't care who wins at all for its how they played the game.

More as likely as not at the end of the whole thing some old guys siting around a antique table smoking cigars and drinking 20 year old scotch will decide for me.

Exactly...that is probably what we should expect...sit back, relax, and we'll tell you who is going into office!

Hopefully your signature brings some support...becuase it isn't going to come from the government!

The Iowa vote wasn't that important. It isn't binding - it's more like a straw poll. It isn't worth all this fuss. It has not been a predictor of elections.
