Did HRC best Barack by more than McCain beat Mittens?
Edited on Wed Jan-09-08 04:21 PM by Kurt_and_Hunter
The McCain victory was called early, so it's seen as a big blow-out. But the numbers ended up much closer than I think they anticipated.

With the greater Dem turnout, did McCain actually end up winning by less than Hillary?

ON EDIT: Ignore my stupid post! In actuality 7,490 Democratic margin, 13,245 Republican margin

I am bad at maths!!

7. You are right, as always. My math skills are deteriorating.
I saw the numbers flashed on the screen and for some reason thought that 8+5=8
