News from the Votemaster

In case you missed the news, Barack Obama won the Nebraska and Washington state caucuses Saturday as well as the Louisiana primary. He also won in the Virgin Islands. Yesterday he increased his winning streak to five in a row by sweeping the Maine caucuses 59% to 40%. The polls show that he is likely to make this eight straight by picking up wins in the Maryland, Virginia, and D.C. primaries tomorrow. While the number of delegates involved is small, it gives him increasing momentum going into the big states of Ohio and Texas on March 4, now being called minisuper Tuesday. These are states full of older blue collar workers, the core of Hillary Clinton's base. If she pulls off sizeable victories there, she will be back on track.

Clinton replaced her long-time campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle yesterday. There is much speculation as to why, but as a general rule, when things are going well and you are a happy camper, you don't replace top staff. Clearly Clinton is concerned that the bad news in February may diminish her hoped-for big wins March 4.

Here are today's new polls.

State Pollster End date Clinton Obama McCain Huckabee Paul
Maryland Rasmussen Feb. 9 31% 57%
Virginia Rasmussen Feb. 9 37% 55%

The polling results for all states are available as a Web page and in .csv format.

CNN is keeping track of the delegates for the Democrats and for the Republicans. Note that other sources may differ because CNN is trying to count the PLEOs (Party Leaders and Elected Officials) and other unpledged delegates. When different reporters call a PLEO and hear "Well, I like Hillary, but Barack has his charms too" they may score it differently. Here is CNN's count:


Clinton 1148 Obama 1121 Edwards 26   Needed: 2025
McCain 723 Romney 286 Huckabee 217 Paul 16 Needed: 1191
