    Voted early last Thursday, was thanked by about five people for showing up to vote. "It only works if everyone votes!" was yelled from a McCool supporter 100ft from the building. Ehhhhh, I'd rather not everyone vote.

    Today is an unlucky day- the Queen of Cities herself fell on this day.

    It is difficult to see who it will be unlucky for, but it is a bad omen all the same.

    If Paul can pull over 25% then it will be a good day. Lets hope young people, Democrats, and Independents come out since that is the only way Paul can pull over 33% and win.

    I would be disappointed with less than 10%. I'm expecting 15, and dreaming of 20.

    Jep, with the exception of the area around El Paso, which is in Mountain Time, according to Green Papers. I expect the first incoming results nevertheless in 20 minutes now.

    Under 10% would be poor, 15% good, over 20% a win.

    That low considered a win?

    I guess I was foolish for expecting Virginia-like numbers.

    I think we will be lucky if we hit 20%

    I think in Virginia most Gingrich and Santorum supporters voted for Paul because they still had hopes that their candidates could win the nomination against Romney. Gingrich and Santorum were not on the ballot, while they are in TX.


    I'm curious what results Paul gets in his CD - has anyone a link where I can see the boundaries of the district? Then I would try to update you on the results from the district.

    I'm guessing vote for Romney. Every Gingrich person I met here in SC is now magically a Romney person. No balls.

    Some just like to back a winner no matter what. They are the people that should really not bother voting, they do more harm than good because most of them don't even know much about the issues or what a candidate thinks about the issues.

    Sister made it to the polls in time (works far away), last of my family members to go vote. Four votes for Ron here (have four in my fam) along with about 20 of my friends.

    I know of at least one Gingrich supporter who actually voted for Gingrich.

    90% will still vote for Newt since they have been in other states.

    A rare one indeed! I didn't even know that Gingrich had any die-hard supporters.

    I'm relatively sure she's not die-hard. I'm really not sure what happened there.

    that is the problem. They don't see that it MATTERS who they vote for against Romney. Newt has already endorsed Romney, and he isn't going to have enough states to have his name in nomination at RNC. Ron, unless something goes WRONG between now and RNC, will.

    And the relatively hot Senate race will unfortunately draw interest, I suspect.

    But we shall see. The vote is one thing, the delegates another, and we can only do the best we can.

    I've asked this a few times, but have gotten no answer- will Dr. Paul be able to receive any delegates if he does not get over 20% or is there a Texas Caucus (or another system) latter?

    Im hearing of Newt winning some votes in Texas. Astounding but nothing surprises me anymore in this election. Unfortunately, Texas is full of warmongers that don't like non-intervention but also don't like the Mormon liberal. Mr. Campaign Debt wins many of their votes.

    Rules were changed so that this cycle Texas is full proportional, mainly due to the redistricting fiasco I think.

    Just got back from working the polls for 12 hours. What a day!!! Hopefully some big wins coming in from Texas locally.

    Ron Paul is very popular here and many did vote for him , However there is no way the establishment lets him even coming close to winning. We all know fraud is everywhere.
