Probable fraud gives Romney first majority in Nevada

Mitt Romney has won his first absolute majority.  Well, maybe.

Nevada waited a full day to report the results of its 2012 presidential caucus. This state, which Mitt Romney won with 51% of the vote in 2008, he "won" with 50.1% of the vote in 2012 after organizers acknowledged that more votes were counted than voters had signed in, particularly in contentious and Mormon-heavy Clark County (Las Vegas).

And yet for all that, Romney got 25% fewer votes than in 2008.  Why would they bother to steal enough votes to give him a majority, given his wide lead over the other candidates? Nevada is one of the Mormons' key states, and if he could not win a majority there, his brand would have been damaged. That they may have stolen just enough to win in Nevada, as they narrowly failed to do in Iowa, should bid fair warning to everyone: here is a campaign dedicated to managing the VOTE TOTALS, not just public opinion.
