“Stupendous” Saturday Returns

Wow that was a real bad attempt at naming eh?

This post will serve as the catch all for tonight’s primary/caucus returns. As I mentioned earlier, the only result returned as of yet was in the Republican caucus in Kansas where Mike Huckabee just slaughtered John McCain 60% – 24%.

More to come below the fold.

5:20 PM PST – NBC is predicting Obama the winner in Nebraska. With 73% of the vote counted Obama is winning 69% to 31%.

It is also looking like a similar spread in Washington with 35% of the vote counted.

5:45 PM PST – Barak Obama is now the projected winner of the Washington caucuses.

6:00 PM PST – NBC News: “Obama leads Clinton by substantial margin in Louisiana exit polls.” It is looking like we might have a trifecta for Obama today.

Update on Washington, with 57% in Obama leads 67% to 32%.

6:30 PM PST – With the Louisiana returns coming in slow as molasses – 0% returns in – I thought it would be worth pointing out that the Obama camp reported “irregularities” there today.

The Obama campaign submitted an urgent request for assistance to the Secretary of State’s Division of Elections today, after receiving widespread reports from Democrats across Louisiana who reported that they were not allowed to vote because their party affiliation had been switched. Hundreds of Louisiana democrats went to the polls to vote in today’s presidential primary and found that they were now on registration lists as Independent or Unaffiliated voters.

6:55 PM PST – Louisiana is still too close to call but here are the numbers, Obama 54% to Clinton 37% with 14% of the vote counted.

7:05 PM PST – It is now official, NBC news is calling Louisiana for Obama with the count looking like this, 53% to 39% with 32% of the vote in.

8:30 PM PST – Make it four…

  1. I wonder what the required percentage breakdown to win a delegate sweep would have to be?

    But with percentage breakdowns like what we are seeing hold, Hillary’s getting her clock cleaned tonight.
