How well liberty candidates did in various states on election day
« on: November 09, 2012, 12:09:46 pm »

A series of reports about how well liberty candidates did in various states is being put together. Once the state reports are out, another report featuring some info about all of the states will be put together. The report is designed to show the results in NH and how those results compare to other New England states (because they are near NH) and states with a large Ron Paul presence earlier in the year.

New England consists of ME, NH, VT, MA, RI and CT.
States with a large Ron Paul presence (Non-New England states only) are IA, MN AK, and NV.
Reports are needed for CT, and AK.

Should any states besides ME, NH, VT, MA, RI, CT, IA, AK, MN and NV be included in such a report? NY isn't very far from NH, maybe it should be included? Anyone have a list for NY?

Here is what there is so far:
NH - 68 out of 171 liberty candidates won http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?395154-New-Hampshire-11-6-12-election-results-thread-including-the-1-candidate-Ron-Paul-endorsed
NH (according to the NHLA) - 74 out of 149 http://www.nhliberty.org/newsletters/2012/12
ME - 5 out of 18 liberty candidates won http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?395145-Maine-11-6-12-election-results-thread-including-the-5-Ron-Paul-endorsed-candidates
MN - 4 out 42 of liberty candidates won http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?395203-Minnesota-11-6-12-election-results-thread
MA - 3 out of 17 liberty candidates won http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?395202-Massachusetts-11-6-12-election-results-thread
IA - 3 out of 14 liberty candidates won http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?394887-Liberty-Iowa-candidates-Election-results
VT- 1 out of 7 liberty candidates won http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?395575-Vermont-11-6-12-election-results-thread

NV - 0 out of 3 liberty candidates won http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?395392-Nevada-11-6-12-election-results-thread
CT?
AK?
Other states?

States where Ron Paul supporting people have a great influence over the GOP:
ME - 5 out of 18 liberty candidates won http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?395145-Maine-11-6-12-election-results-thread-including-the-5-Ron-Paul-endorsed-candidates

That is good news to hear so many won in NH, and they did pretty good in Maine as well. Maybe the FSP is working better then it was thought.  Grin

That's with only early movers too.  Once the FSP reaches it 20k goal things will get much better.  Over half way there as it is.

Another NH liberty candidate won today. He had a close election but he won in the recount.
So the count goes from 67 to 68 for NH.

3rd party folks frequently win in NH if they run in non-partisan elections or run under the banner of Republican or Democratic.

I still find people online that don't know that liberty candidates did much better last year in New Hampshire than any other state. When I see that, I come here, copy this info and share it with them. Feel free to do that. The truth must get out there.

They must have added Fink and Sylvia later. I didn't see them on the original list of supported candidates.

True. Than again, they didn't run in the primary so they couldn't be on the NHLA list at that point.

The Free State Project has been in the news a lot lately. New people are just finding out about the FSP. I just wanted to remind folks that yes, the 2012 elections were pretty bad for liberty candidates in the US. However, liberty candidates did much better in New Hampshire than in most states. Look for liberty candidates to do even better in NH in 2014.
