    Paul camp cries fraud over Nevada Caucus results - National Independent | Examiner.com

    1:30am EST: CNN and the precinct captain revealed the results of the second count. This time Ron Paul’s count was roughly 183 (58 percent of the precinct’s overall vote) to Mitt Romney’s 45, Newt Gingrich’s 20 and Rick Santorum’s 8. (Again, all numbers from your author’s tired, late-night memory. If the media wasn’t blacking out the coverage now, we could share the actual numbers with our readers). Paul supporters are extatic knowing that they won overwhelmingly in a precinct full of Jewish and extremely Christian voters, two of Ron Paul's worst demographics. In fact, CNN entrance polls showed that Ron Paul won overwhelmingly among voters who said they weren't religious.

    1:35am EST: Your author, and thousands of Ron Paul supporters still waiting up and able to do simple math, deduced that if Ron Paul won 58 percent of the vote in a large Clark County precinct and that was representative of his performance county-wide, the Texas Congressman should win the Nevada Caucus. Clark County alone represents more than half the vote in the entire state of Nevada. If Ron Paul won 58 percent of the 53 percent outstanding, compared to Mitt Romney’s 47 percent of the 47 percent counted, it’s a Ron Paul win.

    Bullshit.

    The late precinct didn't open until sunset to oblige Jewish and Adventist members. The idiot Paulbots decided to pack the precinct, and did. Republicans of all stripes have been doing vote fraud for so long that they think they can get away with it.

    Voter fraud unfortunately has been done from both sides through the years. Dead people voting, an incident of 56 people from just 1 small house voting, I had a roommate (he is now long dead) that registered under 2 different names, he even had 2 social security card numbers.

    Or in Iowa, or in Maine. As this blog post points out, "In case you ever wondered how Republicans could screw up so many budgets and get so many economic concepts wrong (e.g. tax cuts raise revenues!), all you've had to do is watch them try and perform simple arithmetic in caucuses this year."

    Fuzzy math, anyone? :rolleyes:

    upone is correct (although voter fraud had nothing to do with it -- I'm pretty sure this was technically open to anyone, although meant to accommodate certain religious groups.) Why would the author assume that this caucus site was representative of all of Clark County, and then assume it was all of the other Clark County results that were fabricated?

    Wishful thinking...
