This is just a thread to keep up any thoughts on the Nevada primary tonight.

This article has Romney at an obvious first place..then Gingrich, Santorum, and Paul. So what will Paul do with yet another loss?? And Romney yet another win??

Enjoy..I'll check back after work tonight

I heard it's Newt and Paul battling for 2nd place?

Guess time will tell.

The GOP will choose Romney and lose. IMO the Dems have paid of the Repubs to pick the weakest candidate; Romney. The MSM is propping up Romney, without the MSM he wouldn't even be a consideration for the average American. Obama would eat him alive in a debate and Obama is terrible.

Yay, Democracy!

Looking good!

If Ron Paul does get second, people will notice he's not unelectable.

Esmeralda county went to Ron Paul. Romney won it in 2008.

Paul's campaign has their own broadcast.

Paul took two counties by a good margin. If he could get Vegas, Reno, and one other. It could turn it all around. He took Nyes by almost double Romney.

Understand the popular vote does not count. It's the delegates and most of the folks staying around for the delegate selection process in theses precincts are Dr Paul supporters.

Same thing happened in Iowa. MSM may be telling you that Romney has X amount of delegates, but that's not true. Romney knows it, and Dr Paul's folks definitely know it!!

All the precinct reports I have been reading online, say Dr Paul's folks are being selected at the precincts, even the ones Romney is winning!

Paul's people need to become delegates.

Then at the convention, they can vote for Paul... if enough people do that, no matter what the votes are for Romney, Paul can be nominated.

Hey.. please explain this further? So if Romney wins more delegates he could still choose delegates that can/will vote for Paul? Wouldn't he go out of his way to avoid that? Explain this for me because I am very interested.

What is up with the discrepancy in votes? On CNN with 13% of the precincts reporting, Ron Paul has 2,320 votes, but according to AP, Ron Paul only has 1,810 votes with 17% of the precincts reporting.

Also, for anybody watching the "special late-hour caucus" on CNN, Ron Paul has WAY more supporters in it than any other candidate.

I just was watching that before they cut to Newt. Newt had 4 or 6 speakers and ron was up to 12 before they cut away! He should easily win that caucuse.

This country is getting exactly what we deserve.

I'm in a fowl mood tonight. I can't believe that Romney is so far ahead of Paul. I can't believe how manipulative everything I've heard on tv tonight is.

Did Romney really make a winner's speech when only 20% of the vote was in? Someone said that from the kitchen, I had left a while back. Just can't stand to listen to it anymore. I really hate Newt.

Well delegates can vote for who they want at the convention if there's no one with a majority... so at the convention, delegates could elect Ron Paul as the main candidate. That's why Paul is staying in the race.

If Romney doesn't have a majority, with Paul's supporters infiltrating the Romney camp, at the convention, they can switch their vote and vote for Paul.

Hmm interesting.
How close are candidates usually to delegates. I mean.. wouldn't it be pretty likely that Romney gets in close with all his? Or are they just assigned? I am not really sure on how the delegates work. I would love to see something like that happen though.

You can't be close with all... there's 2380 of them.

So no.

Anyway I think it'll be a non-issue since Romney will have a majority.

What COULD happen is if people are pissed that Romney is the republican candidate and they think he can't beat Obama (which he can't) then they could ask for another nominee... which could be Paul.

That's called a brokered convention and it hasn't happened since 1952.

So guys, what are your thoughts on Gingrich pulling in a second place and being the "Not Romney" candidate now?

I am not buying this crap.. at all.
The margins for Romney are way too high. Paul won two precincts and second in Clark, but somehow was ended behind Gingrich because his being second everywhere. Santorum's numbers seem way too high.
