One word: demographics. And the demographics are perfect for Trump.

Its a state in economic decline that is primarily blue-collar. It has the poorest white population of any state, and its not super religious nor is it a super conservative state. Also every single county that has voted in previous states that border West Virginia has voted for Trump and many by large margins.

35 percent Trump in KY doesn't strike me as a particularly solid base to suggest that he will carry WV.
Look at how eastern Kentucky, southeast Ohio and western Virginia voted. Trump will get over 50%.

If I resigned my seat as a conservative delegate, would someone want to actively take my place? I don't miss a vote and stay informed, which is better than most, but if there is someone out there who is eager to actively participate in the debate, I will defer my spot to them.

Trump has the option to win Michigan and Pennsylvania.
False. In a Trump vs. Hillary election, best care scenario for Trump is that swing states are Missouri, Arizona, Indiana and Georgia. Everything that Obama won in 2012 is gone, plus North Carolina.

I'll probably end up voting Libertarian if it is Trump vs. Clinton. However, if I lived in a swing state, I would vote for Clinton without hesitation.

Question on Kasich - I saw he was polling at around 3% in Iowa but ended up with 10%. What was the cause of that? I assume he is taking a more balanced approach with the leadoff states, considering his lower percentage in New Hampshire.

Great job, as always! Smiley
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is Mitt Romney angling to be nominee of open convention? on: March 19, 2016, 01:21:27 am
Honestly, I don't think so. He wouldn't be getting this involved - what he did with Cruz would make him look like a complete opportunist if he tried for the nomination at convention. Had he wanted to be the nominee, I think he would have simply spoken against Trump and stayed out of the spotlight. The only way a non-candidate can win the nomination is if they aren't actively trying to get it, IMHO.

Hillary may have just lost Ohio, along with West Virginia and Kentucky (I think Sanders was probably going to win them anyways).

Sorry, but Proposal A doesn't even make sense to me. How can you only go 4 conventions without hosting when there are presently 5 regions? We shouldn't be setting our rules based on the assumption that a new constitution will be ratified.

24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: More people voted in the Democratic Primary in Louisiana than in the Republican on: March 06, 2016, 01:28:54 pm
In 2008, there were 384,346 votes in the Democratic primary and 156,101 voters in the Republican primary. There are 1.3 million registered Democrats, compared to 838k Republicans.

Just some useful information when considering this.
25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: February Federalist Convention (Convention City Process - 48hrs for Amendments) on: March 01, 2016, 10:40:14 am
NO ONE CARES. All convention city votes are is a waste of time. Let's not make this too difficult, folks...

I propose an amendment:

Quote
2. Location. It shall be at the discretion of the party chair to determine the location of the each Federalist Partyís first convention. Thereafter, public IRV elections shall be held for three (3) days at the end of each convention to determine the location for the partyís next gathering. Members shall be given forty-eight (48) hours prior to this vote to nominate candidate cities.

The chair has little power. Give them this - if they don't listen to our suggestions and keep having the convention in places that members don't like, there is a democratic process in place to select a new chair.
