Game 4 (Michigan Primary) Updates

Low turnout all day.

The goon squads are out in force. Nick at RightMichigan has the latest on shenanigans in Grand Rapids. Another post on that

One thing forgotten here is that it is not just the state itself that matters for delegates (GOP side only, no democrat delegates are in stake due to DNC flipping this state the bird). Delegates are also appropiated by congressional district. Al Sharpton in 2004 got some delegates in Detroit due to doing very well in the Detroit based 13th and 14th districts.

Early exit polls predict Romney to win, but the results aren't in yet. I think the low turnout favors him, and I made my earlier prediction based on more than a 20% turnout. I expected a 35-40% turnout. If you are a republican or independent and don't like the nominee choice, don't bitch if you didn't show up.
