From NBC's Chuck Todd
Last night, when I reported the net gain of 7 delegates for Obama out of yesterday's 99 county Democratic conventions, it was based on 96% of conventions reporting. But there were two Cong. districts where Edwards was teetering on the edge of viability, the 1st and the 4th. Well, Edwards teetered the wrong way and Obama netted the delegates. So, here are the final results:
Statewide: Obama won 52%, Clinton 32% and Edwards 16%. There are 16 delegates split up proportionately with Obama nabbing 8 delegates to Clinton's 5 and Edwards' 3.
Cong. District 1 (6 delegates): Obama won 54% to Clinton's 31% and Edwards' 14% (no viability). Obama won these delegates 4-2.
Cong. District 2 (7 delegates): Obama won 51% to Clinton's 30% to Edwards' 19%. Obama won these delegates 4-2-1
Cong. District 3: (6 delegates): Obama won 51% to Clinton's 31% to Edwards 18%. Obama won these delegates 3-2-1.
Cong. District 4: (6 delegates): Obama won 55% to Clinton's 34% to Edwards' 11% (no viability). Obama won these delegates 4-2.
Cong. District 5 (4 delegates): Obama won 47% to Clinton's 37% and Edwards' 15%. Obama won these delegates 2-1-1.
So the overall delegate take for each candidate: 25 for Obama (that's up from 16 during the Jan. 3 caucuses). 14 for Clinton (that's down one from her 15 during Jan. 3). And 6 hung with Edwards, that's down from 14 on Jan. 3.
So here's the new delegate total
Pledged Count: Obama leads 1,409-1,250
Superdelegates: Clinton leads 253-217
OVERALL TOTAL: Obama leads 1,626-1,503
Obama netted 10 delegates from this new Iowa exercise; that's more delegates than Clinton netted out of Ohio on March 4. Wonder if the Clintons want those negative comments about caucuses back? Will this negative caucus talk cost Clinton more delegates when other caucus states meet for state conventions?
