Obama ahead in Guam with 3 precincts to go

(CNN) — With 86 percent of precincts reporting, Barack Obama leads the vote count from the Guam Democratic presidential caucuses with 1,720 votes (53.3 percent). Hillary Clinton has 1,509 votes (46.7 percent).

Roughly 1,400 ballots from Guam’s largest village, Dededo, have not yet been counted. An estimated 500 votes remain to be counted in two remaining villages: Agat and Yona.

The presidential candidates are battling for Guam's four pledged delegate votes. A total of eight delegates will be elected, each with half a vote at the Democratic National Convention in Denver this summer.

    This is great except Guam has NO ELECTORAL VOTES and residents there CANNOT vote in the general election unless they are residents of one of the 50 states. This is as important as a pack of gum.

    GORE 2008

    Obama had a bigger losing percentage in PA than Clinton in Guam.

    PA votes in general election; Guam doesn't.

    Hey Bebble get your facts right. When Hillary was ahead, if you can remember that far back, she voted for those two states to be penalized if they moved their primaries. When they turned in their new schedules she still didn't object to the penalties. Obama (playing by the rules) didn't campaign in either state. He didn't even have his name on the ballet in Mich. Then, and only when Hillary went on the slide after super Tuesday, did she become the super savior to Fl, and Mich, voters. And your right Guam doesn't count in the generals, BUT.. do the math.. I know CNN will not count her out, because they are both owned by the same corporate monster that has it's hands in your pocket. Remember that we impeached the Clinton's once! Or did you forget that Bebble!

    I believe CNN is campaigning for Clinton. I keep seeing the negative stuff that has been plaguing the Obama campaign on this website. It seems the media has made it's choice because you are not dwelling on Clinton's dirty closet. Clinton may be CNN's choice but let's see who God's choice is.

    I am a Florida Democrat and I am bright enough not to blame Obama for not having my primary vote count. And I'm sure not so stupid that I would ever vote for McCain because of it. Talk about bankrupting my country through endless war because of sour grapes? Not likely! Obama will get my vote in November, Darrell!

    On 3/15 Barrack said,
    "HAD I HEARD THOSE STATEMENTS IN THE CHURCH, I would have told Reverend Wright that I profoundly disagree with them."

    In TWENTY years he never heard his FRIEND and MENTOR say anything anti-American. God bless Barrack for being soooooo truthful.

    FL should not be given any voice in any national election until they vote out and quit voting for politicians that make these stupid decisions. Every national election has F– Ups from FL.
