Ron Paul has 22 percent

With 36 percent of the vote counted in the GOP presidential primary in Idaho tonight, John McCain had 72 percent, but Ron Paul had 22 percent, while 6 percent of votes were for uncommitted delegates. Though the GOP nomination already has been decided and McCain is the presumptive nominee, the Idaho tally counts because it’s the basis for apportioning 80 percent of the state’s GOP delegates. Paul supporters have made Idaho one of their targeted states, hoping to influence both the state and national party and conventions.

Here’s a link to the Idaho Secretary of State’s unofficial election results site, which is being updated as the results come in.
