President Obama had no opponent in the Kentucky primary, but he only managed to pull out 57.9% of the vote. The rest went to”uncommitted.” In Arkansas John Wolfe was on the ticket, a guy most people have never heard of but still garnered 41% of the vote to the president’s 59%. Mitt Romney did better in the primaries in both states, even though Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich were on the ballots.
In Kentucky, with 99 percent of the vote tallied, Romney took about 67 percent of the vote. Ron Paul, who is no longer actively campaigning, got 13 percent of the vote.
And Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, both of whom have withdrawn from the race, got a combined 15 percent of the vote. About 6 percent of voters opted for “uncommitted” in the GOP presidential primary.
