Obama's Close Call in Kentucky Democratic Primary; 58 to 4
By Rob Kall
Uncommitted took second place to Obama, with 42.1 percent of the vote compared to Obama's 57.9%. That's a huge message of discontent the Obama campaign will probably ignore.
::::::::Uncommitted took second place to Obama, with 42.1 percent of the vote compared to Obama's 57.9%. That's a huge message of discontent the Obama campaign will probably ignore.
With 99.8% of the votes counted, Obama had a sixteen point spread between him and uncommitted. Compare that to Mitt Romney, who had a 55 point spread between him and his closest competitor.
Add up the Democratic and Republic votes, and there were close to 30% more Democrats out to vote than Republicans. But Obama pulled 119,000 to Romney's 107,000-- much closer.
It will be interesting to see how those uncommitted voters will behave come November. Will they vote for Obama or for Justice Party candidate Rocky Anderson, for Libertarian Party Gary Johnson....
