The President of Chicago

Fun facts from the Democratic popular vote race:

Obama’s lead, including estimated

vote totals in caucus states

(which favors Obama) plus results

from Florida (which favors Clinton),

but nothing from Michigan:                     411,915

Obama’s margin of victory

over Clinton in Cook

County, Illinois:                                     429,052

(Obama’s lead is from the Real Clear Politics total; Cook County result is from the Illinois Board of Elections website.) By other counts, Obama’s lead is far less than his winning edge in Cook County. Only in counts which do not include either Florida or Michigan does his lead in the national popular vote exceed his margin in Cook County.
