I had trouble with your link Chris, so I checked the CNN website:


Still, less than 50% of precincts are reporting, and I believe the caucusing will continue tomorrow, so this isn't a final tally yet.

Wake up! The polls and the elections are corrupt!

Wow many GOPers in maine hate the second amendment! A vote for Romney is a vote for supporting gun control!

This isn't making alot of sense though. It says almost half the precincts reporting (47%) and yet there's only about 3300 votes counted. Surely there will be more than 7000 republican voters in this caucus for the entire state. I think there are alot more numbers yet to come out. The CNN site says there are almost a million registered voters in the state so even with very poor turnout and counting half out as voting democrat there are missing numbers.

No. Your average person (and voter) is just very, very stupid.

It's better that Romney win than McCain. We need those two douchebags to keep fighting it out tooth and nail. ...and it would be great if RP can beat McCain at least.

If you check out the Winning Maine sub-forum, you'll see that RP appears to be in at least 2nd place in terms of delegates, maybe even 1st. Either way, he's beating McWar.

Romney declared to be victor in Maine

Mitt Romney appears to have taken the lightly-contested Maine caucuses today.

Per AP, with 57 percent of towns reporting, Romney had 52 percent of the vote to McCain's 22 percent and Ron Paul's 19.

Romney's camp has already issued a release claiming victory.

Other than Ron Paul, no GOP candidates made it Down East. Romney's eldest son, Tagg, did however brave the elements to deliver the "w" for dad.

McCain didn't put much of a financial effort into the state, but he did have the support of the state's two Republican senators, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, who spoke for him today.

In other news from states nobody knew were having a contest, McCain last night was officially declared the winner of the January 22nd Louisiana caucuses.

Update: AP has made it official.
