Super Tuesday Results!


Directions

Mr. Jones' 7th Grade Language Arts Class from Utah will be working on this page.
1. Tell us who won, and what were the percent results for ALL candidates.
2. Who, if anyone, has declared that they've dropped out.
3. Be sure to include anything interesting that happens as well!
4. Pics and video are also nice!


You can search on the internet for "Super Tuesday" and be able to find results for these states. Also, check out cnn.com, foxnews.com, msnbc.com, cbsnews.com, abcnews.com, sltrib.com, deseretmorningnews.com, or any other news site you want.
These are the states involved on Super Tuesday--February 5: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho (D), Illinois, Kansas (D), Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico (D), New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah.
The (D) means that it is a democratic caucus or primary.

Below, each student should sign up for a state to follow that day. There can be up to three students who sign up for a state. That means that the first 66 students to sign up get to do the assignment.

Student #1 is in charge of creating a section for his or her state below the table. All changes should be made to this page (don't create a new page for your state). When you add the state, make sure you make the state a "Heading 2". See picture below.
. Also, follow the same format as Allie did for Idaho BELOW the table.
When you get information from other places (like cnn.com, the encyclopedia, youtube.com, or any other place) you MUST show where you got your information from. Please do not forget to cite your sources.

To see an example of what I expect, you should look at this page for the South Carolina Democratic Primaries.

Obama, Romney Win Frozen Alaska Races Wednesday February 6, 2008 8:16 AM
By STEVE QUINN Associated Press Writer
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Barack Obama and Mitt Romney easily won Alaska's caucuses on Tuesday, thanks to grass roots support in a state where voting was marked by subzero temperatures and overflowing crowds. With 39 of 40 districts reporting, Obama was leading the Democratic race with 74 percent of the vote. Hillary Rodham Clinton had 25 percent. On the Republican side, Mitt Romney had a commanding lead over Mike Huckabee. With 30 of 40 districts reporting, or 75 percent, Romney had 44 percent of the vote. Mike Huckabee trailed with 22 percent, and Ron Paul was leading John McCain for third place. Democratic party leaders brought about 1,500 voter registration forms for those wishing to newly register or switch parties. But they needed another 1,000, party Chairwoman Patti Higgins said. Obama's campaign credited the victory to bipartisan support. The state Democratic party had 2,500 people either sign up for the first time or switch parties at Tuesday's caucuses. What surprised me the most was the Republicans, the independents and the undeclareds, switching their representation,'' said Chris Farrell, Obama's state caucus director. Robert Lackey Sr., of Anchorage, voted for Romney because he said it was important that the Republicans keep the White House for balance since the Democrats have control of Congress. We have to get some sanity back to Washington,'' he said. ``I was a young hippie liberal at one time when I didn't have any sense. Now that I'm paying taxes, I don't want Democrats taking all of my paycheck.'' Nearly 4,000 Democrats streamed into the Anchorage caucus site, shattering the previous record of 254 voters in 2004. There were so many voters, police threatened to tow cars. Freezing temperatures and snow didn't keep Alaskans away from the polls in other parts of the state, either. In Juneau, the state's capital, Democrats trudged through more than 2 feet of new snow to mob Centennial Hall.

How CNN projects winners
More about the delegate selection process
• Exit polls are a survey of selected voters taken soon after they leave their voting place. Pollsters use this sample information, collected from a small percentage of voters, to track and project how all voters or a specific segments of the voters sided on a particular race or ballot measure. Because of the nature of caucuses, these polls are conducted as voters enter a caucus venue and are known as entrance polls. How to read entrance or exit polls
• Candidates are ranked in order of votes or state delegates received during primaries and caucuses, and not by the most recent estimated number of pledged delegates.
• Closed caucuses: Only registered party members may participate in their own party's caucuses, but anyone may register with a party on caucus day.

Romney suspends presidential campaign!!!


Mitt Romney suspended his bid for the Republican presidential nomination Thursday, saying if he continued it would "forestall the launch of a national campaign and be making it easier for Senator Clinton or Obama to win."
art.romney.speech.ap.jpg
art.romney.speech.ap.jpg

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is suspending his campaign.
external image corner_wire_BL.gif
"In this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror. This is not an easy decision. I hate to lose," the former Massachusetts governor said.
"If this were only about me, I'd go on. But it's never been only about me. I entered this race because I love America, and because I love America, in this time of war I feel I have to now stand aside for our party and for our country."
Romney made the announcement Thursday afternoon at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.
With Romney out, Sen. John McCain is locked in as the front-runner in the GOP race.
Romney had won 286 delegates in through the Super Tuesday contests, compared with McCain's 697.
The crowd booed when Romney mentioned McCain, saying, "I disagree with Sen. McCain on a number of issues."
"But I agree with him on doing whatever it takes to be successful in Iraq, on finding and executing Osama bin Laden, and I agree with him on eliminating Al Qaeda and terror worldwide," he said.
According to a senior McCain adviser, McCain called Romney and told him he "admired his speech today and that he was a tough competitor."
McCain also told Romney he looks forward to sitting down with him at the earliest opportunity. McCain did not ask Romney for his endorsement.
Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama viewed Romney as a more vulnerable candidate, preferring to run against him rather than McCain, CNN senior political correspondent Candy Crowley said.
"They were looking at Mitt Romney as pretty doable in the political sense saying, 'This is a guy that has a record that we can really run with' and they ran with it in the Republican Party as you know, saying that he used to be pro-choice, now he's anti-abortion. He has changed his position on stem cells he has changed his position on gay unions, that sort of thing," she said.
As recently as Wednesday, Romney met with aides to discuss strategy to stay in the race through March 4.
Although he outspent his rivals, Romney received just 175 delegates on Super Tuesday, compared with at least 504 for McCain and 141 for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, according to CNN estimates.
**Romney** came in first in Massachusetts, Alaska, Minnesota, Colorado and Utah on Super Tuesday. In the early voting contests, he won Nevada, Maine, Michigan and Wyoming.
After his win in the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, **Huckabee** became Romney's chief rival for the party's conservative vote.
Huckabee on Tuesday won Arkansas, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and West Virginia.
Romney entered the race in early 2007 after finishing his single term as governor with the support of much of the GOP's conservative establishment.
He had campaigned as the viable conservative alternative to McCain, who has infuriated much of the party's activist base over the years.
But voters "just didn't get a sense of him that gave enough of them enough confidence," said former education secretary and radio talk-show host Bill Bennett.
"A lot of people couldn't get comfortable with Romney for one reason or another -- changes in position; 'Why is he going this way? He's a businessman, why does he sound like he is a born-again Christian?' People were just not sure of what the message was," Bennett said.
The 60-year-old former investment banker had touted his management credentials throughout the campaign, citing his experience in Massachusetts and his turnaround of the scandal-plagued 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
Despite pouring millions of his own fortune into the campaign, Romney struggled after Huckabee upset him in the Iowa caucuses and McCain came from behind to beat him in New Hampshire.
"Primaries are a killing field," said CNN senior political analyst Bill Schneider. "They take losing candidates and get their bodies off the field."
Suspending a campaign has a different meaning depending on the party.
On the Republican side, decisions on how to allocate delegates is left to the state parties.
On the Democratic side, a candidate who "suspends" is technically still a candidate, so he or she keeps both district and statewide delegates won through primaries and caucuses. Superdelegates are always free to support any candidate at any time, whether the candidate drops out, suspends or stays in.
National party rules say that a candidate who "drops out" keeps any district-level delegates he or she has won so far but loses any statewide delegates he or she has won.

Following
Alaska is a safe Republican state. It has voted for a Democratic presidential candidate only once since gaining statehood in 1959.
Since becoming a state, Alaska has never held a presidential primary, choosing rather to hold caucuses.
The most Democratic regions in Alaska include the state's southeast panhandle, which includes Juneau, and the vast area in the North and West, sparsely populated by Native Americans and Aleuts.
The area around Anchorage and Fairbanks tends to go Republican.

Following Information found at: http://www.gov.state.ak.us/ltgov/elections/Please Note: The State of Alaska Division of Elections does not conduct a Presidential Primary. Names of the Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates are submitted to the Division of Elections by the recognized political parties of the State of Alaska following their National Conventions and are placed on the November 4, 2008 General Election ballot.**


California Results

By:Whitnie Kilgrow & Aubrey Pound from Mr. J`s class!

& Jessie V.

Polls close in California at 8 p.m., which means folks on the East Coast will have to stay up until 11 p.m. just to see the polls on the West Coast close. But tallying the ballots could go well into Wednesday morning as county registrars across California are predicting record-breaking turnout. Also, a move from electronic to paper ballots means many votes in the state will have to be counted the old-fashioned way. California is the biggest prize of the 24 states holding primaries and caucuses on Super Tuesday. At stake are 370 Democratic and 170 Republican delegates.

09:20 PM MST on Tuesday, February 5, 2008
KTVB.COM & Associated Press

BOISE - NBC News & NewsChannel 7 called the Idaho Democratic Caucus for Barack Obama just after 9 p.m.
The Ada County Democratic Caucus is a very popular place to be tonight – with thousands of people swamping Qwest Arena at the Grove plaza.
Organizers said they would close the doors at 7pm sharp – but just after the top of the hour, hundreds of people were still outside in the cold, waiting to get inside.
The line snaked around the building not once -- but twice.
NewsChannel 7's crew on the scene said paper ballots were being given to the folks outside the building.
Brian Cronin, chairman of the Ada County Democratic Party, gave assurances Tuesday evening that would-be caucus goers in line by 7 p.m. would be able to vote.
The overwhelming turnout prompted concerns from John Greenfield, who heads Hillary Clinton's Idaho campaign, that some voters may be disenfranchised.
In Canyon County, the Nampa Civic Center is so packed that organizers there are asking caucus-goers who had made up their mind to cast their vote -- and leave. Those who hadn't made up their mind are asked to stay and go through the normal process

Barack Obama won the Illinois Democratic Primary. This comes as no surprise, considering that Obama was a former lawyer in Illinois and now holds his U.S. Senate Seat there. 65% of all voters voted for him, compared to the 35% for Hillary Clinton, the runner up. Obama received almost twice as many votes as Clinton did. Edwards, who has officially dropped out, received a mere 2% of all votes.

The top two Democrat candidates, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, are unique in the sense that America has never had a President like either of them before. If elected, Hillary Clinton would become the first female President in the U.S. However, if Obama wins the election, then he will become the first African-American President. Which is the country ready for first? The below exit polls show how people voted based on other factors than the issues the candidates are adressing.

Male

Female
(59%)

64%
This shows that people of one gender aren't necessarily going to vote for people of the same gender. There were many more female voters than males, but Obama won and Clinton lost. Also above, you can see that more than half of all the female voters (64%) voted for Obama and only 35% voted for Clinton. The table also shows that men weren't opposed to voting for Hillary Clinton either. Even though Obama got more of the male population to vote for him than he got the female population, it wasn't by that much.

This table really communicates how much people take the religion of the candidates into account. Even though Obama declares that he is a Christian, it has been rumored that he is Muslim. Even though the religion of a candidate shouldn't matter, people still take it into account when they vote. Here we see that even though Obama still held the majority, he was less favored with Christian religions and more favored by those who fell under the "Other" or "None" categories.

Hillary Clinton faces a unique factor in the public's opinion of her. Her husband, Bill Clinton, has already been President of the United States. Clinton got the most votes with the people who strongly favored her husband. As their opinions of him got less favorable, the votes for her votes decreased. Clinton got only 6% of the votes from those who had an unfavorable opininion of her husband, and Obama got 91% of all votes from people of that opinion.

"It's easy to give a speech about restoring the middle class, but it is hard to actually do it. ... We've been here before with a president who leaves the economic cupboard bare on Election Day."
-Hillary Clinton (from speech on November 19, 2007)
Apparantly, at least in Illinois, Clinton's views on helping the middle class financially aren't having much affect on the general population. She plans to help people who are having financial problems by providng them with government-paid health care, help with mortgage trouble, and establishing emergency funds to help families sufferring from unemployment, foreclosures, etc. Still, her beliefs on helping the middle class aren't motivating the general population to vote for her with these Illinois citizens, who the majority still voted for Obama, regardless of their financial situation.

Experience is one of the greatest disadvantages Obama has against his oponents. He hasn't been in office very long while Clinton not only has been involoved with politics for a long time, but has even lived in the White House for a long time. Especially during a time of war and crisis, the people of America aren't sure they want a young, inexperienced person with fresh ideas.

"This isn't just about the past, it's about the future. I don't talk about my opposition to the war to say 'I told you so.'"
-Barack Obama (from an October 12, 2007 speech)

One of Obama's most important points is that he plans to withdraw the troops from Iraq. He has gained a lot of support this way. In the above exit poll, the voters were asked to choose the most important issue. 71% of all who stated that Iraq was the most important issue voted for Obama.

Surprisingly, McCain got more percent of votes from those who thought that personal qualities were more important than issues. Romney wasn't very far behing McCain when the issues were most important to the vote, but McCain still pulled out with the majority. What was surprising to me was that so many people (38%) thought that "Personal Qualities" was more important to the vote than the actual issues.

This table shows that the people who thought the top candidate quality was "Shares My Values" voted more for Romney than for McCain. This is probably because during his campaign, Romney promoted himself through his good family values. This probably led some people to vote for him instead of McCain based on values. However, McCain by far outstretched Romney when people voted based on experience. No other Republican candidate can really compare to McCain, who has served as a senator for over 20 years. Because of this, McCain received 68% of all votes of the people who voted based on experience.

Recent Utah national election trivia:

"Utah didn't hold a presidential primary election in 2004 when President Bush was clearly the GOP nominee, and the Republican-controlled Utah Legislature didn’t want to spend any money to help state Democrats hold a primary. Democrats organized their own primary that year, spending around $50,000 putting it on.
"Utah has not voted for a Democratic president since Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Utahns gave President Bush his largest majority of votes both in 2000 and 2004."

Mitt Romney addressed concerns about his Mormon faith in a speech at Texas A&M University on December 6, 2007. The speech was meant to address those concerned with his religion much the way John F. Kennedy addressed his own Catholicism in a 1960 speech while running for president.
