The reason for the discrepancy is that because there was no competitive Democratic primary this time around (as well as several GOP candidates aggressively chasing their votes), there was a huge spike in the number of independents and Democrats who were voting in the Republican race, something Granite Staters can do in the open primary system.

I was under the impression that registered Democrats in N.H. had to vote for their party. True?

Pretty sure. There's been talk about many of them making write-ins for Paul on their ballots. On the other hand, indies can vote in either primary.
