Sky News showing Romney's HQ celebrating already.
projected percentage 36%.
anybody know off hand how many NH winners from either party have secured the nomination?


9 from 16 for Democrats.

13 from 18 for Republicans.

A lot of both of them were unopposed.

Shamelessly robbed from Wikipedia. Not off my own hand.

Since 1972 anybody from either party that has won NH and Iowa has gone on to win the nomination. Bill Clinton and George McGovern are the only two to win the nomination without winning both.

No problem. It's also worth noting that South Carolina has got the Republican nomination right every time since 1980.

I know. I was hoping for another game. I won €20 the last week. Was delighted with myself.

Ron Paul will never be president but he has started a movement that will get a man into the white house in the next 20 years

It's like the movement that helped get Goldwater nominated in 1964. As far as I am aware that was made up of a lot of young people and helped get Reagan the nomination and elected in 1980. Goldwater also helped change the direction of the Republican party back towards a small government position.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Rand get the nomination if Obama gets back in this year.

The battle between Vermin and Cowan for second place is almost as exciting as Romeny/Santorum last week. Come on Vermin, you can do it my son.

337 - 323 in favour of Cowan at the moment.

Oh god no, please. I'm going to bed now. Cowan has a 24 vote lead over my man. Hopefully when I wake up tomorrow Vermin Supreme will be announced as having come second to Obama in an election. That would make my week .
