So after doing some investigating it looks like this is how the VI stands currently.
After VOTING WAS COMPLETE somehow 1 uncommitted person ( CIA most likely ) was able to say that he was now going for Romney apparently and then this
gives Romney like 25 more votes ( this is how they do it in VI ) and then he wins Virgin Islands...
So Ron Paul STILL WINS the popular vote - Now Mitt Romney wins delegates.
Actually... no. I did a bit of further research.
People are voting for DELEGATES. So, a lot of people came out to support Ron Paul delegates, but only one of them had a huge majority of votes. The
other five had much smaller numbers of people voting for them. Romney's delegates all had more people voting for them.
So, here's what it looked like (IMAGINARY EXAMPLE -- I DON'T HAVE THE ACTUAL NUMBERS)
Romney Delegate 1 -- 20 votes
Romney delegate 2 --15 votes
Romney delegate 3 -- 20 votes
Romney delegate 4 -- 15 votes
Romney delegate 5 -- 20 votes
Romney delegate 6 -- 2 votes
Paul Delegate 1 -- 100 votes
Paul delegate 2 -- 3 votes
Paul delegate 3 -- 4 votes
Paul delegate 4 -- 2 votes
Paul delegate 5 -- 9 votes
Paul delegate 6 -- 11 votes
They pick the top 6 vote getters, which is the lone Paul delegate who got almost all the Ron Paul votes and the Romney delegates who got more than the
rest of the Ron Paul delegates.
This is not a new system. This is the way it's been done for years. I have no idea why -- but that's the way the Republican party set it up in the
