Today’s Voting
Posted by: Dale Franks on Saturday, February 09, 2008

In case you didn't know, primary caucuses were held today in Washington a Democratic caucus Nebraska, a Republican caucus in Kansas, and a primary election in Louisiana.

Here is the situation as of 1848 PST:

LA (22% of precincts reporting):
DEMOCRATS:
Obama: 52%
Clinton: 39%

REPUBLICANS:
Huckabee: 47%
McCain: 38%
Romney: 8%
Paul: 5%

WA (Caucus):
DEMOCRATS:
Obama: 67%
Clinton: 32%
Uncommitted: 1%

REPUBLICANS:
McCain: 27%
Huckabee: 26%
Paul: 21%
Romney: 17%
Uncommitted: 9%

NE (Democratic Caucus):
Obama: 68%
Clinton: 32%

KS (Republican Caucus):
Huckabee: 60%
McCain: 24%
Paul: 11%
Romney: 3%

Once again, Obama scores very big in caucusing, which seems to be his strength. Tonight, though, he took away a solid blue state, WA, from Clinton, something he was unable to do on Super Tuesday.

Once again, however, in LA, Obama scored very well in exit polling, but in actual votes, the raw votes don't seem to be holding up as well as those exit polls. As a result, the race in LA is still too close to call. once again, the Bradley Effect seems to be taking place.

UPDATE: But, not enough of a Bradley Effect to lose him the state. Obama gets a clean sweep tonight.

And, in his victory speech—given at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Virginia—he's going after John McCain. As if he already had the nomination in the bag.
