Iowa Caucuses vs. Iowa County Assembly Totals

Today's Iowa county assembly results side by side with caucus results are here (pdf).

Since the MSM seems only to report how Obama did, I'll take a look at how Hillary did.

In the January caucus results, Hillary had 29.47% of the vote. Today she got 32.08%

Out of 99 counties, Hillary gained in almost all of them. She lost more than one delegate in only these 4 counties:

  • Woodbury (lost 4)
  • Scott (lost 8)
  • Marshall (lost 1.5)
  • Cerro Gordo (lost 2)

Hillary gained more than 4 delegates over her January numbers in these counties (there are too many counties to list where she won between a fraction of 1 and 3 more delegates):

  • Dubuque (won 11)
  • Polk (won 6 1/2)
  • Webster (won 4 1/2)

Iowa County Assemblies Today: What Will Edwards' Delegates Do?

The Iowa County Assemblies are today. The 99 counties will select delegates to the state convention.

The pledged delegates from the caucuses are allowed to change their mind. In addition, it's unknown what John Edwards' delegates will decide to do: stay with Edwards as his Iowa campaign heads are urging or switch to Obama or Hillary.

Obama has been pitching Edwards' delegates in Iowa for two weeks. Hillary began this week.
