Clinton, Trump, & Wonder Woman Win the 2015 Johnson County Fair Mock Election!

(Originally written on 07/29/15): I haven't been to the Johnson County Fair this week. But if I had been there, you can bet that I would vote in the 2015 County Fair Mock Election. This election has been ongoing since Monday morning. Check out the results so far:

As of 3:00 PM today, 771 people had voted in this election.

Wonder Woman (with 174 votes) is winning the nonpartisan battle against the other superheroes, followed most closely by Batman (114 votes) and Captain America (103 votes). Squirrel Girl was not an option -- but SHOULD HAVE BEEN!!

Hillary Clinton (with 169 votes) is winning against the other Democratic Party contenders, followed by Bernie Sanders (97 votes), Uncommitted Democrat (50 votes), Lincoln Chafee & Martin O'Malley (19 votes each), and Jim Webb (with 13 votes).

Donald Trump (with 44 votes) is winning against the other Republican Party contenders, followed by Scott Walker (30 votes), Bobby Jindal (28 votes), Jeb! Bush (26 votes), Uncommitted Republican (25 votes), Ben Carson (22 votes), Ted Cruz (18 votes), Rand Paul (14 votes), Mike Huckabee (13 votes), Rick Perry & Marco Rubio (12 votes each), Carly Fiorina & Lindsey Graham (11 votes each), John Kasich (10 votes), Chris Christie & Rick Santorum (8 votes each), and George Pataki (1 vote).

My understanding from speaking yesterday with one of the Board Supervisors is that there has been a concerted effort by Clinton voters to also vote for Wonder Woman.

Updated on 07/31/15: The Johnson County Fair Mock Election is over -- and we have some winners! Here are the final results:


As of 8:00 PM last night, a total of 1303 people voted in the mock election.

Wonder Woman (with 270 votes) won the nonpartisan battle against the other superheroes, followed most closely by Batman (194 votes) and Captain America (163votes). I checked with the Powers That Be and learned that one could NOT write-in Squirrel Girl...

Hillary Clinton (with 289 votes) won against the other Democratic Party contenders, followed by Bernie Sanders (168 votes), Uncommitted Democrat (72 votes), Martin O'Malley (39 votes), Lincoln Chafee (33 votes); and Jim Webb (with 21 votes).

Donald Trump (with 87 votes) won against the other Republican Party contenders, followed by Scott Walker (50 votes), Jeb! Bush (45 votes), Bobby Jindal (38 votes), Ben Carson (35 votes), Uncommitted Republican (33 votes), Ted Cruz (29 votes), Carly Fiorina & Mike Huckabee & Rand Paul (21 votes each), Marco Rubio (18 votes), Lindsey Graham (15 votes), John Kasich & Rick Perry (14 votes each), Rick Santorum (12 votes), Chris Christie (11 votes); and George Pataki (3 votes).

13 people took the time to vote for Jiim Webb. Weird.

The rural portions of Johnson County tend to trend more conservatively, so he might be liberal enough for them! I need to get out there today and vote for Bernie while there's still time! (Squirrel Girl, too!)
