Obama To Spend Tues. Night in Iowa, Possibly Will Claim Victory
Barack Obama will return to Iowa Tuesday night. The New York Times says it may be to "claim victory" and declare himself the Democratic nominee. His campaign views winning a majority of 2025 pledged and unpledged delegates victory.
Will ignoring the popular vote total in Florida backfire on him? In addition to the 2.3 million who voted in Michigan and Florida, there are 17 million or so Hillary supporters who think those votes should count before we pick a nominee.
A new poll out shows Obama in third place behind McCain and Clinton among rural voters in America. They comprise 23% of the voting public.
Hillary runs even with McCain in the poll but Obama trails McCain by 9 points.
Update: Just wanted to add that the Democratic nomination is not Obama's to claim until one of two things happens: Either Hillary withdraws from the race or all the delegate votes, pledged, unpledged and superdelegate, are counted at the convention.
