Oh, that would be awesome. The Louisiana rules are so complicated. :roll:


I lived in Louisiana for 2 years. Politics like nothing I have ever seen before or since. The 51% rule you mention may be the case, or it may not, or maybe it was before, but not now because.....etc.


It is very complicate but basically this is how it works. A couple weeks ago, there was a Louisiana caucus that elected state delegates to their state convention which mets next Saturday. Today is the primary and if a candidate gets 50% of the vote today then they automatically get 20 National delegates and the other 27 are elected at the state convention next week. If no one gets 50%, then all 47 delegates are elected at the state convention next week.

Confussed yet?

In other words, next week that state convention will either elected 27 or 47 national delegates depending on if someone gets the 50% mark tonight. The state delegates at next week's convention can elect these national delegates how ever they choose but they will probably at least take today's results into consideration.

Bill Hemmer on Fox with Exit polls (I hope I got it all right):

7 out of 10 "conservative".

52% Huck, 35% McCain.

For those who "shares my values" is most important: 64% Huck, 20% McCain

For those who valued "experience": 75% mcCain, 8% Huck

I missed the last part

So the state convention could decide on anyone they like?

Yes

We're busy on the phones helping Governor Huckabee by calling People in the Winner Take All State of Virginia. They posted phone banks at http://www.mikehuckabee.com for Virginia. If Governor Huckabee is going to win he's going to need our help so lets get to it. :D

The 52 Huckabee to 35 McCain was for conservatives, who made up 70% of the voters.

D-Dawg

Oh, by the way, did anyone hear earlier Fred and Mort on FOX with Bill Hemmer?

McCain is probably looking at a Jeb Bush or a George Allen as a VP?
That Bush is very well liked in Florida. Well whop-de-do.

Jeb Bush????????????

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No more Bushes or Clintons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then if McCain keeled over in off, wham-o! We have a President Bush AGAIN!

Barf!!

Now, back to regular programming.....

:roll: at the "experience" perception that still surrounds Huckabee. He has 101/2 years executive experience, McCain none!

:shock: about those LA polls though. It would be so amazing if Huck could win there tonight and somehow pull that 51%!

If Huck got 51% tonight.... I would be willing to call THAT Divine Intervention.
