(CNN) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has won the Wyoming caucuses, CNN projects.



Based on results compiled and released by the Wyoming Republican Party, Romney won 39% of the votes cast in straw polls conducted at county-level caucuses through Tuesday.


I had a feeling Romney would win Wyoming. He has alot more momentum going into super tuesday now it seems.

Here's how everyone else is finishing.


Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania came in second with 33% of the straw-poll vote, followed by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas with 20% and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich with 8%.



The delegate count may be closer. Of the 26 delegates at stake, CNN estimates Romney will pick up 10 delegates, while Santorum will take in nine delegates, Paul will receive six and Gingrich one.


There's a little more in the article about the Michigan delegate count. Romney won Michigan, but he and Santorum are supposed to get 30 delegates each from that state.

I dont care about Romney either. I dont know of anyone that does. I clicked the link to see how Paul did, then checked here and didnt see the Wyoming results posted here yet, so I decided to make this thread.

Who the hell is "Romney"?

I read about Ron Paul. He seems like the perfect president, so I stopped there. No need to look any further when the perfect choice sits right in front of my face.

Republicans get a lot of votes from older people who don't really use the internet. That's where the Romney votes are coming from. There's no voter fraud or machine manipulation. Sorry Paul fans, looks like Super Tuesday is Paul's death knell.

Funny with all the chatter and the talk about Arizona and Michigan I didnt even know Wyoming was today. Good for Romney. Yes, I agree I think Newt or Paul might drop out on Tues!

I had a very similar conversation with my friends last night while watching Arizona and Michigan. We were wondering..."How the heck could someone vote for Romney or Santorum?"

It seems the younger voters (including me) lean alot more towards Paul than any other candidate usually, while the older voters lean more Santorum/Romney. I like seeing some of the "exit poll" data on CNN, such as when they're breaking down age group and who they vote for.

I also agree, there's no voter fraud going on. Maybe there is a little tiny bit (such as the bit in NH), but not a large amount.

Come super tuesday, I think it may be a make-or-break for Paul and Gingrich.

Yeah, if either candidate finishes Super Tuesday with less than 15% of the 1,144 needed delegates (171 total), they should throw in the towel.

I find it odd that everywhere Paul shows a HUGE following,even whensome media outlets project he could win.....

He falls way behind.......

The crowds you see at Paul rallies are practically all his voters. There are hundreds of thousands of registered voters who don't attend rallies.

i would be very disappointed if RP drops out.. he is always teaching us that its about the message and waking people up. besides, he even said he aint going anywhere

I doubt Paul is dropping out. Remember, Paul already has something like double the delegates that he got last time after dropping out, based off of numbers that are now outdated, and he's been doing way better in the straw polls.

Plus, from the looks of it, Romney still isn't able to pull together majority victories in the primaries. Add that to Paul getting more delegates than many would suppose, and Santorum giving Romney a good chase in the actual results of the primary vote tallies, Romney probably isn't going to amass those delegates needed to single handedly win the convention, and I'd bet that Paul's campaign recognizes this. If these things remain true long enough, I'd bet that Paul and at least Santorum are going to stay in this thing until the convention, where we might see Romney just short of the delegates necessary to win, and maybe his fall from being the end nominee.

Just remember guys, Paul's gone farther than this with less support and less coverage, I doubt that he'll pullout yet.

I care, Romney is clearly the most qualified to be the next president. Sorry to you Dr. Paul fans, but the Dr. should spend his money more wisely, if he doesn't get VP he should run for Governor, he has no chance winning the republican primary.

Those that don't like Romney don't like him because he's rich, last I checked every successful presidential candidate was rich, he's running because he's rich and using his wealthy background, of what he's built as proof that he can turn this economy around, nothing to consider negative. He's Mormon, congrats, he has a clean background, many Secret Servicemen are Mormon, why? clean background. His personality is stiff, that is the only thing that I won't argue with, but it doesn't disqualify him from being what he will be, the 45th President of the United States.

If the voters on those forum would be the ones to vote, I assume Ron would win in a landslide. I also have a feeling the demografic of this forum is not representative for the voting public as a whole, or is it?

Can somebody point me to forums, that reflect more closely the actual results, or the support of the candidates on the streets? How come there is such a huge public turnout for ron, but so little for Romney, yet he keeps acing the votes? Have I seen the wrong events?

See that's the odd thing here. This is a website that prides itself on being fringe and outside the normal frame of thought. In almost every thread, you will read ideas that most don't subscribe to. On the Ron Paul threads, it seems like it's completely reversed and everyone obviously thinks Ron Paul is the man. Otherwise, it's fraud.

Obviously, you are correct in your assumption. If the ATS voters were the only ones voting, Ron Paul would win everything. They are a vast minority of the voting public, and they just can't accept it. I respect their passion, but don't understand their inability to understand that they are routing for the under dog. It's much easier to win a primary, than an election. He hasn't been able to rally enough voter support to win any of them.

Im not talking about rallies....im talking about the numbers, im talking about straw polls, im talking about his following..

Denial that this guy is being railroaded away from the presidency because of fear from the establishment , is nothing more then a lack of objectiveness and watching whats going on.......

Romney is the most unconservative out of the whole bunch.....ive been watching that guy for YEARS...

And just FYI im not a rabbid paul fan...........and i watch fox and other channels all the time....

Im also not a new voter............anyone with half of their head in the game can see whats going on here

Do you get paid money to troll for Ron Paul in threads not related to him?

Romney won?

*Yawn*

The only people on those forums that would vote for Paul would be his loyal stormtroopers, of which there is a fringe minority.

Most of us live in reality and as much as we all dislike Romney (right?), it's going to be hard for someone to steer the MSM off of Romney's course.
