33. that's a different key. yes, republicans win that one simply because obama isn't running again.

this is the key relating to a contested primary:

"2.Contest: There is no serious contest for the incumbent party nomination."

for this key, democrats are the incumbent party even though obama's not running again.

note that there's no key for a contested challenging party nomination. i.e., for 2016, it doesn't matter how simple or messy the republican primary is, but democrats pay a price for if our primary isn't essentially a coronation.
