And the Losers Are . . .

Results 2008 New Hampshire Primary

             John McCain          86,571          7 delegates
             Mitt Romney          75,546          4 delegates
             Mike Huckabee      26,859          1 delegate
             Ron Paul                  18,308         0 delegate

             Hillary Clinton        112,404        9 delegates
             Barack Obama         104,815        9 delegates
             John Edwards            48,699        4 delegates

Results 2012 New Hampshire Primary*

            Mitt Romney              97,532        7 delegates
            Ron Paul                     56,848         3 delegates
            John Huntsman         41,945        2 delegates
            Newt Gingich             loser
            Rick Santorum           loser 
            Rick Perry                   loser

*Only 12 delegates at stake reduced from 23 by the republican national committee for moving the primary up to January.

Speaking of relevance, the Jan. 31st republican primary in Florida already has more absentee ballots requests than all the votes cast in Iowa and New Hampshire combined.

2286 - number of delegates to republican convention
1144 - number of delegates to win nomination
    37 - number of delegates decided thus far
    20 - number of delegates committed to Mitt Romney
So how is it possible that Mr. Romney is now being declared the winner by so many knowledgeable sources or when did 20 become 1144?
