Oh I wish I was in the land of Cheney where Republicans are rather zany,
Sing away, sing away, sing away, Cheneyland!
OK, Sweetwater County, Wyoming, the last to report her Republican straw poll results, is in.

Here are the results reported by the Wyoming GOP (http://wygop.org/2012-straw-poll-results/). I’ve reshuffled candidates by their statewide vote, and counties by their total vote. I also added county seats, and the three towns that weren’t county seats but had more than 5,000 souls in 2002 and/or more than 10,000 in 2010. (Wyoming is in some ways the reverse of my state of Rhode Island: second-smallest in population and second-least-densely populated; fewer than 500,000 people in almost 100,000 square miles vs twice as many Rhode Islanders packed into one-hundredth of the area.)

Santorum can claim, as in Michigan, that he carried 10 counties, while Romney carried only 8, Paul 5 and Gingrich none. I haven’t tried to map these counties, but I’d hardly be surprised if Romney was stronger in the counties closest to Utah or with the highest concentration of Mormons.

[I may post this again if things don’t line up properly or the format doesn’t work.]

  1. Great! CNN has a map, which saves me having to visualize an image and convey it in words, having only been in the Equality State once (four decades ago en route to a socialist convention).

    Remember how tiny the numbers are: for example, Albany County, home of Laramie and the University of Wyoming, where Romney beat Santorum 25 to 23 while Paul and Gingrich together won another 23. Or Niobrara, carried by Paul with 9 votes to Gingrich’s 8 and Romney’s 3.

    If you want to see the rather meaningless percentages by county (e.g. to rank something on a spreadsheet), they’re here:

  2. Even better, it’s a mouse-over map, so you can see the few lop-sided counties (Uinta in the Southwest for Romney 2-1, vs 2-1 for Santorum in Platte and Goshen in the Southeast.) Just a few families with similar passions, or a mildly-energetic campaign by one candidate’s local supporters or the strong endorsement of a church, broadcaster or newspaper might be sufficient to sway/carry/pack one of these counties’ polls.

  3. Graphic’s…..
