Hillary Clinton Wins Puerto Rico

Awaiting Results: Clinton Pounds Obama in Puerto Rico

Hillary Clinton has cinched Puerto Rico's Democratic primary by a wide margin, CNN projects, giving her the larger share of the territory's 55 delegates.

Estimates show Clinton winning 68 percent to Obama's 32 percent. Though Puerto Rico went to the polls today, only the 50 states and Washington DC will get to weigh in come November.

Hillary will likely take 32 delegates from today's contest, and Obama, 14. Yesterday also saw the awarding of delegates when the DNC decided on Michigan and Florida, awarding the delegates half-votes, giving Clinton 87 additional delegates and Obama, 63.

Is the win for Clinton today, symbolic?

It's her official headshot taken right before the campaign started. So a year or two old. Of course it's in a studio so they can control lighting...etc. YAY! I tricked everyone! I just got these photos done and I really liked them so I figured I'd try them out for a little bit. I'm glad you guys like them. I feel really naked though...in more ways than one. ;) "I still think Cine looks like Bea Arthur!!!" :rotfl:

:ROTFL: at the photo of Hillary Clinton! I hate to pick, but just how OLD is that photo (the black and white). HarmonyFrance, I didn't know that was you :-) I also put my own photo up, but I've noticed that the majority of people on this site don't use pictures of themselves (beats me why). For goodness sakes, I still think Cine looks like Bea Arthur!!! ;-)

Well if that old political adage holds "as Puerto Rico goes, so goes South Dakota", Hillary should win there too.

stephley, Thanks for that. That's pretty much what CNN said. I just think that territories should be represented as well. Who becomes president effects them just as much as it effects those in Texas, Mass or Florida. I am an Obama supporter but I stand by my original statement that I'm glad she paid so much attention to Puerto Rico.

That poster in the background looks like they just took Chairman Mao out and replaced it with her image.

"Puerto Rico 's presidential votes do not count for a simple reason. The United States Constitution doesn't guarantee citizens the right to vote for the presidency. As we are constantly reminded these days, Article II gives the states (and, more recently, the District of Columbia), not the people, the power to elect the president. Individuals have only the right to vote on an equal basis with other citizens in their jurisdictions. And the Constitution makes no provision for territories, like Puerto Rico and Guam, in the Electoral College." The New York Times CNN also said something like 57% of the Puerto Ricans voting had family in NY or had lived there, giving them more of a connection to Clinton than Obama.

I'm glad she paid so much attention to Puerto Rico and that they had a say in the primary process. Even though CNN explained it to me like 3 times while waiting for the results to come in, I still don't understand why they can vote in the presidential election. They are part of the US too.
