Obama continues to lead in Guam

(CNN) - Barack Obama continues to lead Hillary Clinton in Guam's Democratic caucuses as local party officials work into the early morning tallying votes from Saturday's event.

With 7 out of 19 villages reporting, Obama leads with 497 votes (55.3 percent) to 401 votes for Clinton (44.7 percent).

Guam caucus officials merged some village returns together, reducing the total number of villages from 21 to 19.

    I am a white blue color worker and I am voting for obama. He is speaking to our children about books and studying hard as Hillary showed them how to go to bars and drink. Simple example smart choice. Obama all the way here in Indiana!

    Hillary wants voting rights for Guam?
    After she loses today, lets see if we EVER hear her say that again.

    I have never, ever seen a candidate go from state to state and pander so openly and unashamedly promising each group all that she has to offer and keep getting away with it.

    I really wish Obama DID play the game more and create a list of all the promises she has made to all the people she's met, never to mention them again once she has left town.

    It's a ten point lead!

    At least by Hillary's fuzzy math standards!

    This will probably stil end up being a 2/2 delegate split. What a waste of time and money. The Democrats and the way they handle primaries and caucuses are ridiculous.

    Right on Bill!
    We'd like her out of N.Y. just as quick as she admits she lost this race!

    Can you legally post the results of a vote before the voting polls close? It's just another way for CNN to back their candidate with favorable coverage.

  12. Democrats Unify

    All democrats, it's time to unify and unite the party against John McCain. I know there are some Hillary supporters that are disappointed, but even Obama supporters would be disappointed if he was behind in the delegate count & states won. However, my point is, we need to unite. We know it's mathematically impossible for Sen. Clinton to win the nomination. If we are honest with ourselves, all states that Sen. Clinton won, the so called big states are democratic states, there is no way NY, CA, NJ or states like that will go republican, and Sen. Obama did not loose by a huge margin. However, Sen. Obama has won even the so called red states, the smaller states in huge margin, these are the states that will help us have a democrat as the next president. I request everyone to unite, and vote for Obama. If we are honest with ourselves, go to CNN delegate counter, and play around with the delegate mapping and u will find out that even if 25% of the superdelegates vote for Obama he will be the nominee, but Sen. Clinton needs more than 75% of the remaining superdelegates. We the people have already decided, and that's why Sen. Obama has won more states, more pledged delegates. Well, you may say MI & FL are not counted, again if we are honest, Sen. Clinton herself said that they won't count when she began this campaign, and in MI Obama's name was not even on the ballot. So, to be fair, we need to support whoever the nominee is. It looks like Sen. Obama will be the nominee, and he has a new vision for our nation, he thinks about the future of the country, not just this generation, but more generations to come. God Bless America. Please Vote Democrat in November.

    I'm just wishing that it didn't say 7 out 19 ==>VILLAGES <==

    Somehow that sounds biased and condescending. Why not just say preceincts like everybody else?

    CNN please report the facts, you dont have to show that you support billarys, however, just try to be somewhat journalistic and real if not follow the facts which hrere are \the numbers:
    188 to 105…that's 64% to 36%.

    I wouldn't call that a small lead.

    also your misleading title "Polls show Obama losing support," whihc has been at the top of the list is not true........... but you keep it there at the top of the list while you ignore Paul vs. clinton (the fraud of the century). Not even Al Capone could pull that one.

    This is just a dead news. The game for Pledged delegates, Popular votes and numbers of states won is over! Hillary can not win Obama on any of those rules again in this Primary.
    I would not be surprised if she is still running after Jan 21st 2009 when Obama' s term as President of United states starts

    Hey Bill - calm down.

    Hillary is NOT dividing the party. Some voters simply choose to support a candidate who is QUALIFIED (a.k.a experienced) enough for the most important "job" in our country.

    I think it's the Obama supporters who have carelessly voted for a man who is NOT yet ready for priime time. He is clueless. And I don't know if I could vote for him.

    God help our country if Obama wins....things could go from bad to worse very quickly.

    The DNC doesn't care about Florida and Michigan. Their mantra is "we don't want to count their votes because they obviously voted the wrong way". Guam cannot vote in the presidential election yet the DNC will not count Florida and Michigan.

    Hey, Bill

    I haven't heard Obama utter one word about Guam, so does that mean he really cares?

    Every Single poll shows if Obama is the Nominee, McCain will
    win the election.

    Agree with Bill's last sentence above - Indiana and NC can bring this damage to the (Demogratic) Party to an end.

    Hillary will fail miserably! I would call America to see through this woman. She is about to sell our goverment to foreign goverments. What a pathetic power hungry woman!

    May 3, 2008 12:19 pm at 12:19 pm |

    If you Hillarites, talk about caucuses and pooh them which I expect you to do, that's Hillary fault. She knows she could have won if she had a back-up plan, but NO, she ignored the caucuses and small states. Voters won't forget that, and you and Hillary should Never ignore one single voter or election system IF you want to win.
