Early Guam returns show slight Obama lead

(CNN) - Early vote returns from Saturday's Guam Democratic caucuses show Barack Obama with a small but early lead over presidential rival Hillary Clinton, although the bulk of the votes in the U.S. territory have yet to be counted.

With 2 out of 21 villages reporting, Obama won 188 votes to 105 for Clinton. Guam Democratic Party officials told CNN Saturday morning that the vote tabulation is ongoing but will take several more hours to complete.

Polls closed in Guam at 8 p.m. local time, or 6 a.m. eastern time. Four delegate votes are at stake in this event.

    Realistic – totally agree with you. So many Hillary supporters are screaming (hatefully, I might add) that that the DNC and Obama are the ones that disenfranchised MI and FL and that Hillary is their savior. Why didn't she speak up before she originally signed the agreement if she's so outraged?

    I've read so many comments regarding Obama supporters drinking the Kool-aid. With arguments from Hilary's side like the whole disenfranchisement thing, I think it's time her supporters start checking out what they're drinking.

    the results just got closer.. it wil be a split 2 delagates each. and the voting turn out isnt going to matter for either canidate.. this is absolutely absurd to even think quam matters.

    Indiana and N.C matter.. and the only thing that matters in both of them is who won the amount of votes..

    right now hillarys in the lead with all votes counted.. or did you forget your a democrat

    Guam is an island that is closer to Japan than it is to the U.S. (Hawaii). It just goes to show that Obama's appeal is far reaching. OBAMA IS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME LEADER. GOBAMA GOBAMA GOBAMA!!!!!!

    Obama needs to crack 66 percent to get a 3-1 split (2 delegate pickup). He needs 57 percent to get a 2.5 to 1.5 (1 delegate pickup). This is because 8 delegates with 1/2 votes will be sent to Denver. Anything less than 57 43 then you get a 2-2 split, and it didn't mater.

    Right now, with 37 percent in, there is a 55-45 split, meaning Obama meaning it's a 2-2 split currently.

    Obama will probably win as it is a caucus and he and his team can cheat as usual.

    "Why can't we all just get along!"

    Keep the dream alive and HOPE to our young people that there must be a better way. The time has come where politics should be about solutions and hopefulness, not gimmicks.

    Cutting the gas tax this summer is like putting a bandage on a broken toe. Wake up people, we cannot continue to fall for the same politics as usuall year afte year, and expect change!

    Wake up America.....

    You said it, this is a witch-hunt, not just on Saturday Night live , it's a daily thing here in the U.S., always a double standard and that is very clear.

    Hillary is a lier who will do or say anything to get votes, she is very deceiving to the American Public! Is this somebody u want in the White House?

    Lets see, Hillary wins PA by 9.2% and that is called "DECISIVE" when she claims it as her state that her grandfather, father, and she grew up in as a Scranton girl. (she was expected to win by 20% and she got less than half -but the mainstream media continually calls it decisive) but when Obama wins by double digits, it is always insignificant. There is always something wrong with the people who voted. Why does the mainstream media only like people in OH and PA?

    North Carolina, beware of Hillary's illiegal ROBO CALLS from W.V.W.V ( Women Voice Women Vote). Ex officio -Maggie Williams.

    Directing illigeal ROBO CALLS towards the minority population, so that they would not go to polls.!!

    HILLARY IS DIVISIVE AS IT CAN BE
