The effect of seeing those names, like most details of these caucuses, is a mystery. In New Hampshire, around 1 percent of Republican voters cast ballots for a candidate who had quit the race already. Another 1 percent wrote in the name of someone else — mostly, surprisingly, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). While people familiar with internal polls doubt that either Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) or Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) can defeat Donald Trump here, opponents of Cruz hold out some hope that a few libertarian-minded voters will show up and spoil their ballots by backing Paul.
