Obama Ahead Popular Vote Delegates Superdelegates States Yet Hillary Declares Victory Popularity

Clinton is just in denial.

According to real politics Obama has the lead in popular vote totals. Of course, if Michigan is counted the way Hillary wants, she will gain in popular votes, but still not be able to claim a majority in popular vote.

The reason: Some states which held caucuses do not report the popular vote results, but report only the delegate distributions.

Texas counts double - Primary and caucus. But for Clinton, it's as if the Texas caucus did not happen, only the Primary which Clinton won by a slim margin.

Obama cleaned up after the Texas caucuses with more delegates than Clinton though Clinton won the Primary.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Monday that Obama is likely to end up with 36 to 38 of the 67 total delegates up for grabs from the caucus process. Clinton is expected to finish with 29 to 31 delegates.
Clinton won the March 4 popular vote by a 51% to 47% margin, giving her 65 delegates from that process to Obama's 61. That means Obama could end up with 97 to 99 delegates, while Clinton would have 94 to 96.
Roughly 1 million people attended the March 4 caucuses, while another 100,000 showed up for another round of caucuses held over the weekend, the Star-Telegram reported.


Not only that, Barack Obama's name was not on the ballot in Michigan and subsequently he got zero votes. The uncommitted column got hundreds of thousands of votes.

What does that tell anybody else other than Hillary clinton?

**(Senator Obama was not on the Michigan Ballot and thus received zero votes. Uncommitted was on the ballot and received 238,168 votes as compared to 328,309 for Senator Clinton.)


Now look at Oregon, where people don't even show up to actually vote, but cast paper ballots by mail.

75,000 showed up for an Obama rally there! Really now when was the last time any political figure attracted that amount of people?
