Political Strategy for a Permanent Democratic Majority

Literal Lobbying; Precinct Results

The “persuasion period” in Precinct 19 is coming to a close, and since participants are literally scattered out of the room and into the lobby, even Edwards supporters are “lobbying.” There’s lots of cheering as people join the viiable groups. It looks a little like some sort of fraternity or sorority rush.
The final count: 156 for Obama. 78 for Edwards, and 69 for Clinton (a handful of Biden people refused to regroup with another candidate, so virtually nobody left between the first and second vote).
By simple math, Obama gets 4 delegates, Edwards 2 and Clinton 2. Thus, to be clear about how the statewide count works, in this precinct, Obama got 50%, and Edwards and Clinton each got 25%. Nothing else that happened here tonight counted.
