Surprising Primary Statistics

Interesting stats and analysis from MyDD.

Among Democratic primary voters, Hillary Clinton leads in the popular vote by 52% - 48%.

Barack Obama is ahead 59% - 41% among both independent and Republican voters who have participated in the Democratic primaries.

MyDD says:

What is troubling is the large influence voters who are not Democratics have on the Democratic Nomination for President.

On a personal level I believe Democrats should choose the Democratic nominee for President

AMERICABlog crunches some other numbers, and delivers its own mathematical intrigue:

A recent PEW poll shows that 10% of Democrats who support Obama would defect and vote for McCain should Hillary become the candidate. But, a whopping 25% of Democrats who support Hillary would defect and vote for McCain should Obama become the candidate.

(By the way, I don't know if it is just me, but doesn't it look like that Democratic donkey in the new party logo is galloping downhill? Interesting symbolism...)
