Here are the results of the Texas Democratic county / senate district conventions results as of 4:00 P.M. EDT (3:00 P.M. local time), with 200/284 conventions reporting (70.42%) and 7,154/7,666 delegates awarded (93.32%) (note, apparently my earlier count was off by 17, so I added 17 more to make 7,666 delegates. The previous percentages were correct though). Obama has now mathematically clenched the victory at the conventions, leading with around 800 delegates, with only 500 more up for grabs (so the best he can do now is 58.51% and the worst is 51.83% – so my prediction of 60% was off:
Obama 3,973 55.54%
Clinton 3,181 44.46%
Again, I have called it for Obama – and it’s now mathematically a guaranteed win for him.
