Per Political Wire:
Clinton 825, Obama 732 (2,025 needed for nomination)
Gallup Daily Tracking Poll as of 2-4-08
More details here.
Clinton: 50.2% (7,347,971)
Obama: 49.8% (7,294,851)
Need I say more about yesterday’s voting? We had 73% more voters than the GOP.
The Hillary-Obama traveling circus is great for the party. The only thing that could screw this up would be for the Clintons to make a power play at the convention.
If this comes down to the convention, we’ll need to ask our superdelegagtes (who are our representatives) if they’d rather have “your democrat” win with 51% and a slim Congressional majority, or have another Democrat win with a possible fillibuster proof Senate???
Using the Secretary of States numbers, and the graphic in Pam’s previous post it appears that HRC had a 9+% win. I don’t know where the exact numbers you have come from.
What I just cited was updated 3 minutes ago. Only 98.5% of precincts fully counted.
Maybe Alrudder is citing total votes for all the contests?
There’s all this talk about Obama’s fans/voters staying home in November if he misses the nomination.
(1) Hillary almost got enough by herself to beat a Republican.
(2) It seems to me as likely that conservatives will sit out a McCain run as that Obamaites will pull back into their shells.
(3) With all of the momentum Obama has, it looks like the discussion is academic.
I find it interesting that Mr Hope makes such divisive claims about his supporters and equally interesting that his supporters care more about the Obama “movement” than the Democratic party.
Please, let’s be fair and stop all of the political spin. I don’t hear Darrell saying that, “his supporters care more about the Obama movement than the Democratic party.” I am an ardent Barack Obama supporter and volunteer here in his Wilmington, De, downtown headquarters. ALL of the loyal volunteers with whom I work would be greatly dissappointed if Barack was not our nominee. HOWEVER ALL OF US ARE PUBLICALLY STATING THAT WE WILL ACTIVELY WORK FOR HILLARY, IF SHE BECOMES OUR NOMINEE!” Read his post carefully. He is saying that it’s, “just as likely that conservatives will sit out a McCain run as that Obamaites will pull back into their shells.” In other words, he is saying that neither Republicans or Democrats will withdraw from the political process, if their favorite candidate fails to get the nomination.”
I fail to read into this post that, “his supporters care more about the Obama movement than the Democratic party.” Please give us a break!!!! Buzz
