The Idaho primary was last night. In the Feb. 5, caucuses, Barack Obama won 79% of the vote to Hillary's 17%. A total of 21,224 Idahoans participated.
In last night's primary, Obama won 56% to 38%, with 42,000 voting.
Twice as many people voted in the primary as the caucus and Obama got 23% fewer votes.
