* the light colored ones indicate people who weren’t on the ballot.

No chart, since no delegates were awarded for Michigan for the Democrats.

I was off by about 8% for Clinton; 3% for Uncommitted and Romney; and 1% for McCain when I predicted it at 9:00 P.M. last night (https://inkslwc.wordpress.com/2008/01/15/michigan-primary-results-for-900-pm-with-my-call/) and I was off by 3% for Clinton, 2% for Uncommitted, 1% for McCain, and 7% for Romney when I predicted it early yesterday morning (https://inkslwc.wordpress.com/2008/01/15/michigan-votes-today-my-statistical-analysis-of-the-primary/).

Today had a good “showing” by Edwards and Obama, going out there and promoting the Uncommitted choice VERY well (it won 2 counties).  It’s going to look pretty bad in the media tomorrow that Clinton only won by 15%.  And I don’t understand why the Uncommitted choice was so popular for Republicans (poor Duncan Hunter) – perhaps because it got so much attention on the Democrats’ side???

Tomorrow, I’ll have some county maps and such.

Now, on Saturday we’ll have the Nevada caucuses and the South Carolina Republican primary.  I’ll put up my predictions as well as some more statistical analysis later.

Done Reporting,

Ranting Republican

    There are 6 at large delegates… 12 orginally so divided by 2 equals 6
