Thread: Problems are reported with the Washoe County results of the Nevada GOP presidential caucus

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Problems are reported with the Washoe County results of the Nevada GOP presidential caucus

    http://www.rgj.com/article/20120204/...results-Washoe

    Problems are reported with the Washoe County results of the Nevada GOP presidential caucus, the chairman of the Washoe GOP said.“The state is screwing up the reporting of the Washoe results,” Washoe GOP Chairman Dave Buell said of the Nevada State Republican party. “Washoe has reported the correct results, but they (state party officials) can’t seem to get it right.”

    The RGJ is contacting the state GOP for a response.

    Buell has tried to fix the problem by reporting the correct Washoe results directly to the Reno Gazette-Journal, The Associated Press and ABC News, Buell said.

    “We finally went around the state party, and I just gave the results to The AP,’ Buell said. “They asked for precinct by precinct so we sent them all of the precinct information, too. AP ought to be getting that out soon.

    Washoe’s official results are Romney 42 percent (2,836 votes), Gingrich 28 percent (1,876 votes), Paul 17 percent (1,168 votes) and Santorum 12 percent (817 votes).
    If his numbers are the truth, Buell is a hero.

    If the author of this article has Buell's numbers, and didn't report them, journalism fail.

    And either way, the use of 'Washoe's official results' is a poor choice. It remains unclear whether the author is taking the position that Buell's numbers are official, or whether he is taking the position that the GOP's are.

    I don't have enough information to know one way or the other - cause all I have is this article to go by.

    If you quote someone and say "This" it indicates you agree or want the same information. You may even see variations such as"^This" or "THIS!!!"

    From the Reno Gazette-Journal:


    Problems are reported with the Washoe County results of the Nevada GOP presidential caucus, the chairman of the Washoe GOP said.

    “The state is screwing up the reporting of the Washoe results,” Washoe GOP Chairman Dave Buell said of the Nevada State Republican party. “Washoe has reported the correct results, but they (state party officials) can’t seem to get it right.”

    The RGJ is contacting the state GOP for a response.

    They say the official results but I'm not sure if that's the numbers with the problem. It's Rom, Grinch, Paul.

    They are the numbers the GOP is reporting

    Washoe County:
    Ron 2008-1317 votes (14%)
    Ron 2012-1168 (17%); -149 votes; +3% points

    Mittens 2008-4032 votes (44%)
    Mittens 2012-2836 votes (42%); -1196 votes; -2% points

    Numbers in that article line up with GOP now. http://www.nvgopcaucus.com/results Earlier that county had Gingirch winning big time. That was probably the mixup.

    Those are the same as what's reported here -

    http://www.nvgopcaucus.com/results

    Doesn't help Ron if Buell's numbers are the ones quoted in the article.

    right, i'm thinking the word "official" means that the results reported now are the ones in the article, not the "real" ones.
