Clinton Group Has 4812 Messages, Obama Group Has 3,349, Yet
85-99.99% of the posts here are pro-Obama. What gives?

1. Clintonites are better typists.

2. The Obama group prefers to overwhelm the public forum rather than their own.
Similarily to how Obama's team overwhelms the caucuses that they buy. ;)

8. I don't understand your signature line
Obama is ahead in the popular vote as well as the delegate count.

13. His delegate count is disproportionate to his popular vote count.
Basically Hillary needs to earn 1k more of the popular vote to catch up with him. At the time of the calculation is was 1.4 million more votes than he to tie. This is because of WCGreen's observation about disproportionate delegation dispersal, which oddly originates mostly in the small population red states with caucuses.

15. You give $20 million to thousands of staffers rather than $5 million to one staffer.

3. No more than 60% are pro-Obama, as far as I have seen
I was actually pretty surprised when I saw a straw poll here with Obama winning big. It seems like the Clinton supporters are much louder than their numbers suggest...it seems like at least 1/3 of the threads here are anti-Obama, and another 10% pro-Clinton (rally photos, donation threads, etc).

6. Most of the Clinton supporters are donors to DU.
Therefore, we can post in the group fora.

22. well.. honestly, i'm sure its a conspiracy to keep hillary fans hidden
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 04:39 PM by enki23
or maybe hillary fans prefer to keep to the shadows? not sure really. but i'm sure it's a conspiracy.

or maybe hillary fans are afraid of being seen in public, or being challenged on their support for hillary? personally, i don't think it is significant at all. in any way. but i suppose it's possible that hillary fans are somewhat more likely to want to avoid being challenged. unless you somehow mean to suggest that these tiny segments of DU are somehow more indicative of her actual level of support than the much, much, MUCH larger public forums? i was sorta assuming you weren't silly enough to be suggesting something so obviously asinine.

18. Because Obama is clearly going to win... so GD:P has become the "Obama Group"


It's just a matter when all the people still bashing our nominee, Obama, get tombstoned here.

20. I think you need a star to post in those forums, don't you?
Many Obama supporters are newer members or members who don't donate to DU, so they can't post in Obama's forum.

Hmmm.

23. If you look closely
Many of those posts are not pro-Obama, they are anti-Clinton.

Although the Clinton supporters do post anti-Obama pieces at times, there are an overwhelming number of Clinton and Clinton supporter hate pieces posted by so-called Obama supporters..
