Nevada GOP caucuses!

I will be live-tweeting, so go to the @LionBlogosphere Twitter homepage for the latest tweets.

But there may not be much to tweet for a while. The caucuses will start between 5 PM and 7 PM PST, and all will be finished by 9 PM PST, but with the three hour time difference and an historically disorganized Nevada GOP, that means there may not be any results until late into the night on the east coast.

  1. Caucuses have extremely low turnouts. Nevada GOP caucus had a turnout of 1.9% on Feb. 4th 2012. Even Iowa, for all its media attention, has terrible caucus turnout.

    • That may be a misreading of what the vote totals mean.

    • I read that 37,00 pre-registered for the NV GOP caucus which is higher than the total turnout in 2012. The reason turnout was so low in 2012 is Romney was a shoe-in. Even in 2008 Romney defeated McCain by a very wide margin in Nevada.

    • Regardless, Trump is pulling in record turnout relative to past years.

  2. It’s been a good day for Trump. Kasich apologized, Trump said he’s like to punch a heckler in the face.

  3. You should twitter follow this guy.

  4. Still, the turnout still might be so low that anything could happen.

    • Gonna be a Trump blowout – even the Mormons will go for him.

      • I was right – it was a Trump blowout. I was wrong – the Mormons went for foam boy. Ever since I learned what that means, I can’t stop using it.

  5. Article based on estimates from GOPe analyst about how the delegates end up based on polls. Says he’ll be close to 50% by the time it’s done. Whether he gets 50% depends on Connecticut and Ohio. 50% is required to avoid a brokered convention. Which mean the candidates cut deals in exchange for giving their delegates to another candidate.

  6. Watching live streaming on The Conservative Treehouse – there are widespread violations because state was not prepped for high turnout. Caucus sites running out of ballots. “In for a long night.”

    • The caucuses end 11PM EST.


      February 23, 2016 at 10:28 pm

    • Widespread violations of what, the rules of the state Republican party? State and federal laws don’t govern these things.

  7. Video unrelated:

    • Is it the singularity?

      • I don’t have a strong opinion on that view, but I think that a robot like that could probably do a lot of menial labor jobs (like moving things in warehouses, cooking food, etc.)

        I think that we also might be reasonably close to a robot that could be trained to repeat simple tasks that are generic (built into the robot) but vary a little bit for each user. One example would be a robot that can put your dishes away.

        I think that the Deep Reinforcement Learning approach could probably lead to this kind of technology, though there are still some major technical hurdles.

  8. The picture on the top of your twitter feed is a good selection from your paintings. The color scheme is very natural – no sentimentality, but some brightness – and you left out the over-philosophical bare lead-gray trees that featured in the last woodland painting which you posted on your blog. I miss the suggestion of infinity that one saw in the path that led through the woods (and into the horizon) beneath the foliage, but you can’t have everything.

  9. Looks as if Trump will get the nomination as long as he doesn’t mess up too badly this week.

  10. Trump wins Nevada. Early indications are Rubio is second.

    If this holds does Trump shift his attention from Cruz to Rubio? Since South Carolina Trump has sounded like he’s warming up to take out Rubio.

    • I think he shifts his attention to Hillary.


      February 24, 2016 at 8:04 am

      • I hope he goes after Rubio in part because I definitely don’t want a Trump/Rubio ticket
