Barack Obama Wins Virginia

CNN projects that Barack Obama will win the Virginia primary. This is expected and the Clinton campaign has not planned any victory or concession speech. At the moment, she is is Texas.

The exit polls are very good for Obama showing him taking 90% of the African-American votes and about half the white voters. Clinton cannot keep the race like this if she intends to win this.

Delegate Count

(You can read more on delegate counts here)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Delegate allocation is still being tabulated.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There are two delegate counts on this site. One is on the sidebar, which is from CNN. The other is at the bottom of this post, which does not include states that has NOT allocated National Convention Delegates.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Keep in mind, Iowa, Wyoming, Nevada, Maine, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, North Dakota, Minnesota (Republicans), Washington, and Nebraska have not awarded any National Convention delegates and will do so at their respective State Conventions. The delegate counts provided by the media are estimates and may vary in the final result. This is not meant to be biased or unfair to a candidate, but it is in the interest of accuracy and integrity. I will imput the delegate counts of these states once their state convention have elected them.

Superdelegates and Unpledged delegates who have made an official endorsement are included for the Democrats and Republicans respectively.

Here are the delegate counts as of February 9, 2008.

% is the percent NEEDED to be nominated.

Survey USA: Clinton Strong in Ohio

A new Survey USA poll out has Clinton up 17 points in Ohio. The problem is the internals.

Clinton: 56%
Obama: 39%

According to the internals, “only” 73% of African-Americans support Obama. This contradicts his performance he has registered since Super Tuesday in which up to 90% of African Americans voted for Obama. Second, Independents seem to be under represented. Only 11% of the sample are Independents, roughly half of 2004 levels. Obama leads Clinton 48% to 43% in this demographic.

48% of the respondents said the economy was their top issue. Clinton lead 60% to 35%.
