The levers we pulled

The State Election Board has released preliminary precinct-level counts for Tuesday’s primary, and, well, I’m not above grubbing up a spreadsheet to look at my local numbers.

Democrats: Sanders 271; Clinton 227; others 11.

Republicans: Rubio 163; Trump 112; Cruz 102; Carson 19; Kasich 17; others 6.

Which is a total of 509 Democrats and 419 Republicans.

Countywide totals:

Democrats: Clinton 34,255; Sanders 32,368; others 1,716.

Republicans: Rubio 29,030; Cruz 26,912; Trump 22,117; Carson 4,992; Kasich 4,007; others 1,351.

Should anyone care, he who garnered the fewest votes was Lindsey Graham, with 49.

Note: Democratic totals may include independents invited to participate.

    I actually miss the voting machines with levels. (We use optical scanners). This year we could really use them: they could rig a toilet-flushing sound to the lever for when you pull it. (Or, I suppose, a slot-machine sound)

    “Levers” dammit, not “levels.”

    my brain is fried. I wish I could blame something more fun than pollen and desperation.

    Those “others” earned my deep respect. Regardless of their candidate.

    As someone said last night, it doesn’t take much money to declare a candidacy, only to make one viable.

    They are all not viable, in my book. There are times one’s civic duty is to refuse to vote any candidates: they all inspire nothing but contempt.

    Definitely no shortage of contempt. Then again, it goes both ways: the Ruling Class is pleased to look down its nose at us proles.
