Romney Captures 32 Idaho Delegates

The Idaho Republican Party announced its Caucus results today, with Mitt Romney declared the winner of the 2012 Idaho Republican Party Presidential Caucus. By winning over 50 percent of the counties’ proportion of delegates, Mitt Romney will therefore receive all of Idaho’s 32 delegates to the Republican National Convention. Across the state, over 44,000 enthusiastic Idaho Republicans made history by participating in the first ever Idaho Republican Party Presidential Caucus. The county delegate results with 100% of counties reporting are as follows:

  • Mitt Romney: 25
  • Rick Santorum: 4
  • Ron Paul: 3
  • Newt Gingrich: 0
  • Buddy Roemer: 0

Due to Article VI, Section 5 of the Rules of the Idaho Republican Party pertaining to Apportionment and Selection of Delegates to the Republican National Convention, once certified, Mitt Romney will receive all of Idaho’s 32 delegates.

Also: Romney wins 31 counties, Santorum 7, Paul 6/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise

Question: In our HucksOnline poll, we predicted Paul (45%) would win over Romney (39%), followed by Santorum (8%), Buddy Roemer (5%), and Gingrich (2.5%). Pointing to our poll, Yabetcha advised us last night not to quit our day jobs. Why did we miss so badly on the final results?
