I spent a glorious
summer winter day at the beach, knowing that when I got home polls in Wyoming would be closing and Obama would win. And he did. That makes 26 states for him now, 27 if you count Texas, which he winning delegate-wise.
Obama won 59 percent, or 4,459 votes, to Clinton’s 40 percent, or 3,081 votes, on Saturday with 22 of Wyoming’s 23 counties reporting. Twelve delegates were at stake. Obama already has a lead in the overall race for nominating convention delegates.
Obama generally has outperformed Clinton in caucuses, which reward organization and voter passion more than do primaries. The Illinois senator has now won 13 caucuses to Clinton’s three.
Makes you wonder…the Clinton’s campaign argues that caucuses are undemocratic, so does that include the ones they won too? Hmmmm…
Anyway, we’re off to Mississippi (does anyone think ‘em-eye-ess-ess-eye-ess-ess-eye-humpback-humpback-eye‘ when you spell that state?) on Tuesday, which also has Obama slated to win. Rasmussen has:

I highly suggest you read Rasmussen’s findings. You’ll see what Clinton’s GOP tactics are doing to the party and our subsequent nominee.
