Idaho Republican Primary Today

Latest Update: Revolution in Idaho: 24% for Ron Paul!

Idaho votes today in an open Republican primary. The state will be sending a total of 32 delegates to the GOP National Convention.

26 of these delegates are proportionally allocated to the presidential contenders based on today’s statewide Presidential primary vote. A 5% threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates.

The remaining 8 delegates are unpledged and are selected during the Idaho State Republican Convention from June 12 to June 14, 2008:

  • 3 National Convention delegates are chosen by the convention as a whole. These 3 delegates will go to the National Convention officially “Unpledged”.
  • 3 party leaders, the National Committeeman, the National Committeewoman, and the chairman of the Idaho’s Republican Party, will attend the convention as unpledged delegates by virtue of their position.

Delegates are bound to vote for the candidate who nominated them on the first ballot taken at the GOP Convention. Delegates selected as “uncommitted” may cast their vote for any candidate whose name has been placed in nomination before the Convention. In the event of death, withdrawal, or release of delegates by a candidate prior to the first ballot, those delegates become uncommitted.

Today’s primary results will be available here.

Ron Paul and John McCain are the only Republicans left in the race.

    Just to make it clear- Anyone who does not stand 100% for Israel and 100% AGAINST the terrorist organization called Islam is going to go to hell! By the way, I’m a monarchist.

  • daniel morgan

    You are all fools. You, if you do not recognize this will be fooled by antichrist and go to hell!

  • Rita

    McCain 81,673 votes, 70%
    Paul 27,378 votes, 24%
    Uncommitted 7,455 votes, 6%

    94% reporting. This is EXCITING!

  • Carl

    It’s now back at 70% for McCain, 24% for Paul, with 89% reporting. McCain is toast! Well, not exactly, but that’s an absolutely phenomenal showing for Ron Paul and it will energize many supporters to press on to the Convention.

  • Is was 24% for Paul at one point. Paul also got 40% to McCain’s 60% in Boundary County (northernmost county).

  • R.D.

    McCain: 73%
    Paul: 22%


  • George

    20%!! Our best showing so far. I hope it remains at 20% or grows even higher!

  • Walt

    Results are now coming in!!

    McCain 76%
    Ron Paul 20%
    Uncommitted 4%

    With only 3% of precincts reporting so these numbers could change.

  • Walt

    CNN says “still voting”. When do polls close in Idoha?

  • R. D.

    I bet we’ll have more than 10% of the vote today! Anything over 20% would be an amazing miracle!

    12:2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.

    12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.

    Ron Paul never dishonored Israel. He treats them in an honorable way and respects them as adults who can take care of themselves. He agrees with their right to make their own decisions and their efforts to make peace with their neigbors.

    “He has never taken a firm stand for Israel (which means he is under God’s curse-Gen.12:2)”

    Do you mean “he has never taken a firm stand ON Israel”, as in “he has never spoken out openly against Israel’s shenanigans, manipulations and betrayal”?

    Well, who can blame him? Look what happened to courageous individuals like David Duke, who has spoken out against Israel for many years, Norman Finkelstein, who was recently arrested on arrival in Israel, or even President Jimmy Carter, who was smeared as an anti-semite for suggesting that Israel doesn’t treat the Palestinians all that well. Anyone who tells the truth about Israel is immediately smeared and attacked.

    Here’s Gen 12:2 by the way: “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:” ???

    Also, McAmnesty will open our borders and give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. That’s treason in my book, because a borderless nation that is invaded by illegals is no nation at all.

  • Lucy

    Dude, the Antichrist is already here. Haven’t you seen The Omen?

    Ron Paul is not a mason. He will stop sending our tax dollars to Israel (as well as to Israel’s enemies in the region). He will stop the war in Iraq (which many say is a war for Israel), and he will not support an attack on Iran. However, he does support Israel’s right to defend itself.

    As for McCain, his father was instrumental in covering up Israel’s terrorist attack on the USS Liberty. McCain himself is totally subservient to Israel. He will remain in Iraq for up to a 100 years and will launch more wars for Israel.

  • John Galbreath

    Ron Paul has not taken a stand for Israel, he has taken a stand for America. He has not tried to outlaw ID’s only National ID’s. Big difference. Americans do not have the worst criminal record only the highest prison rate (big difference). The ICC will be fact with McCain, not with Paul! This election is not about religion it is about Liberty America and freedom. Vote Ron for liberty, freedom and America.

  • David

    Ron Paul does not lay bricks, he is an OB/GYN. btw, Longcat is the antichrist, and he supports Israel.

  • daniel morgan

    The ICC is coming whether we like it or not. McCain is wrong on this issue, but it is foolish to expect to stop the ICC (coming soon to a world ruled by Antichrist). As for the ID, it is stupid to do away with ID’s in the nation with the worst criminal record in the world. Everyone who is a heathen will eventually turn against Israel (including MASON Ron Paul). McCain (a Christian, though unfortunately not KJV-only)will not be deceived when Antichrist comes on the scene and they start chopping off Christian’s heads.

  • Jessica Schreindl

    A vote for John McCain is a vote for the International Criminal’s Court (ICC), the national ID card (Real ID), a weak border and continued war at the expense of Americans’ civil liberties. Vote Ron Paul for freedom. Win or not, let your voice be heard.

  • daniel morgan

    Beware of Ron Paul. He is a mason. He has never taken a firm stand for Israel (which means he is under God’s curse-Gen.12:2), and he ran as a libertarian last time! He is only in it for the votes. Vote for John McCain. God bless John McCain
