From the BBC:
… Mr Obama’s campaign said that he had in fact won the battle in terms of the number of delegates which would be allocated to back him at the party conference where the Democratic presidential candidate will be chosen.
The Associated Press reported that Mr Obama had won 13 delegates to Mrs Clinton’s 12.
If Obama won the most delegates, why are there reports declaring Clinton the winner?
Clinton captured the popular vote Saturday, but Obama edged her out for national convention delegates at stake, taking 13 to her 12.
I’m confused. Who gives a fuck about the popular vote? Since when does that matter?
Mrs Clinton’s campaign manager Terry McAuliffe told US network MSNBC: “This is a huge win for Hillary. This is big, this is a big day.”
