For The Record

The notoriously thorough and evidence-based Bill Kristol writes in today's New York Times:

On Tuesday night, while the G.O.P. Congressional candidate was losing in a Mississippi district George Bush carried in 2004 by 25 points, Barack Obama was being trounced in the West Virginia Democratic primary — by 41 points. I can’t find a single recent instance of a candidate who ultimately became his party’s nominee losing a primary by this kind of margin.



Huckabee 61% (136,216)
McCain 20% (45,563)


Romney 90% (255,218)
McCain 5% (15,264)

Colorado (caucus)

Romney 60% (33,288)
McCain 19% (10,621)

Wyoming (caucus)

Romney 67%
McCain 0%

Look harder!
