Kinda Tacky: Obama Speaks in MO, Before WVa Polls Close

Big Tent Democrat notes on Talk Left that Obama gave a speech in MO, before the polls closed in WVa. A little tacky? Kinda… But we already know Obama is looking beyond W Va although the results there could matter.

BTD also notes early exit polls from WVa:

Exit poll – Clinton wins 69% of the white vote, 71% of women. This is a biiiiig won.

Exit poll. Experience voters – Clinton 93-3. Changers voters – Obama 53-45.

Jerome Armstrong makes a great point:

Since it looks like Clinton is being predicted to gain over 60 percent of the votes in WV, I thought I’d list which other state primaries have given such high margins:

* Arkansas (70%) Clinton

* Georgia (67%) Obama

* Illinois (65%) Obama

* Virginia (64%) Obama

* Maryland (62%) Obama

* Mississippi (61%) Obama

This makes the likely result of the West Virginia result a bad one for Obama. It can not be explained away, even by the Obama News Network.

Jeralyn on TalkLeft adds that the media is focusing on McCain and Obama today, downplaying WVa. I’ll have more on WVa later…

    The math on CNN just got smarter at the chalk board ! Keep sitting there Mr. Wolfson ! The delegate math ? “Like the song says, it’s almost heaven !” Faith moves mountians ! Home stretch ! Go to Hillary Clinton. com and send in your support ! Seat Fl. and MI. ! 62 to 31 and last night they called her toast ? Oh really ? We will not quit !
