Thread: Ron Paul Support by Region

  1. #1

    Default Ron Paul Support by Region

    Ron Paul's Percentage of the Vote by Region

    As states vote, I'll update this post.

    Ron Paul tends to do better in caucus states than primary states. Most of the caucus states are in the Midwest, Mountain West and Pacific Northwest. The Mid-Atlantic and Southeast average is shown including and excluding VA.

    Want me to add a region? Tell me the name of the region and the states inside the region. See an error? Let me know.

    Ron Paul Support by Region:
    1. Northern New England 28%
    2. New England 22%
    3. Canadian Border 22%
    4. Pacific Northwest 20%
    5. Northeast 19%
    6. West Coast 18%
    7. East Coast 16%
    8. Mid-Atlantic 15%
    9. Midwest 15%
    10. Great Lakes 14%
    11. Mountain West 13%
    12. Southeast 12%
    13. Southwest 11%
    14. Mexican Border 10%
    15. Gulf Coast 7%

    Support by region at various times during the Ron Paul's 2012 Presidential Campaign:
    As of 3/14, the strongest regions are: Mid-Atlantic, Northern New England, New England, Northeast, West Coast, Pacific Northwest, East Coast... Let's see how that changes as additional primaries/caucuses are held.
    As of 4/4, the strongest regions are: Northern New England, New England, Northeast, Canadian Border, West Coast...
    As of 4/25, the strongest regions are: Northern New England, West Coast, New England, Pacific Northwest, Canadian Border, Northeast...
    As of 5/9, no changes. Northern New England is still by far the best region and the most southern regions are still by far the worst regions.
    As of 5/16, the strongest regions are: Northern New England 28%, New England 22%, Canadian Border 22%, West Coast 20%, Northeast 20%, Pacific Northwest 20%...
    As of 5/30, no changes. Northern New England is still the strongest region.
    As of 6/6, the strongest regions are: Northern New England 28%, New England 22%, Canadian Border 22%, Pacific Northwest 20%, Northeast 19%, West Coast 18%...

    Would love to see a graphical representation of these numbers.

    We also know which states to most receptive to the liberty message and we should encourage liberty-minded candidates to run in those top tier states, and by this I mean bankroll them.

    I suggest over the next 4 years we try to make places like the North East and Pacific Northwest our strongholds. We need a homeland similar to the bible belt for religious conservatives, and the rust belt for blue dog democrats. With this and a strong Iowa presence, because of their first in the nation caucus, I think will give much more power in upcoming elections.

    Indiana 16%

    North Carolina 11%

    West Virgina 11%

    It should be noted that in all 4 of these states, four candidates were on the ballot but it was known to almost all of the voters that only two candidates were actually still running for the Republican nomination for President. Ron Paul received 16% of the vote in Indiana. That would have been good for Ron Paul if there were 30 active candidates on the ballot like during the New Hampshire Primary. However, there were only 2 active candidates on the Indiana ballot so the 16% of the vote he received is less than impressive. The WV and NC numbers are even worse.

    Nevertheless, the numbers are still encouraging. In 2008, there were 4 candidates on the NC GOP Primary ballot. 2 of the candidates were widely thought to have dropped out and Paul received only 7% on the vote. While the South is still Ron Paul's least worst region, it is improving!

    NC lowered the East Coast region from 17% to 16%.

    WV lowered Mid-Atlantic from 17% to 16%

    WV and NC lowered the Southeast from 12% to 11% but increased the Southeast excluding VA from 7% to 8%.

    I don't think the popular vote numbers are indicative of much, except perhaps the level of corruption and the willingness of the establishment in each state to cheat RP. We know the capability exists, and we know the people running the show have absolutely zero morals or conscience to mitigate their lust for power.

    Now that the vast majority of the primaries/caucuses have happened, I looked into this statement. Unfortunately, if I were to weight the states of a region based on the percentage of the population in a region they make up, it would just make the leading region, Northern New England, look even that much better compared to the other regions. In Northern New England, the number would go from 28% to 29%.

    It would lower the average for the next 5 strongest regions: New England 22%, Canadian Border 22%, West Coast 20%, Northeast 20%, Pacific Northwest 20%. That would make Northern New England 10 percentage points better or mean there is about 33% more support for Ron Paul in Northern New England than the next strongest regions of the county. Since I'm already accused of being heavily New Hampshire focused, this would just draw negative unwanted attention to me.

    Additionally, the percentage of the vote Paul received is only one indicator. Paul's two highest states were VA and ME but a lot of factors went into those numbers. Clearly, if VA would have been a 10 or even 4 person race, the numbers would have been different. If ME had an open caucus, a primary or a larger percentage of the population voters, things would be different there. While I feel these numbers are interesting, this isn't the be all, end all.
