Never-Ending Primary Thread #1

images.thumbnail.jpegEveryone is calling Vermont for Obama (no surprise) but Chuck Todd on MSNBC says the percentages will matter. If Obama gets 64% he takes 10 delegates to Clinton’s 5, and has a net gain of 2.

Tonight’s schedule (per MyDD):

Vermont (15 delegates): polls close 7 pm ET.
Ohio (141 delegates): polls close 7:30 pm ET.
Rhode Island (21 delegates): polls close 9 pm ET.
Texas (193 delegates): polls close 9 pm ET

Jim Gehgarty has early exits:

For the first set, Obama is up by 2 percent in Ohio, Hillary is up by 2 percent in Texas, Hillary is up by 3 percent in Rhode Island and Obama is up by a 2 to 1 margin in Vermont.

The second set is similarly close – Hillary up by 2 percent in Ohio, the two Democrats tied in Texas, Obama ahead by 2 percent in Rhode Island and a similar 2 to 1 margin in Vermont.

If Obama is in fact winning Rhode Island that’s big news — after Massachusetts went so heavily for Clinton.
