Obama has not lost

I remember before Super Tuesday saying to Mary, “You know, Obama has not lost yet.” I noted that the delegate count had either favored Obama or been tied in every contest to that date. I mused that the press liked to say Clinton won NH and Nevada, but in the way that counted (delegates), Obama tied one and won the other.

So it was interesting to find this on the front page of DailyKos today.

1/3 (IA) 16 – 15
1/8 (NH) 9 – 9
1/15 (MI) 0 – 0
1/19 (NV) 13 – 12
1/26 (SC) 25 – 12
1/29 (FL) 0 – 0
2/5 (SuperTuesday) 842 – 828 (11 still to be decided)
2/9 (LA, NE, WA, VI) 105 – 56
2/10 (ME) 15 – 9
2/12 (DA, DC, MD, VA) 111 – 57.5 (6.5 to be decided)
2/19 (HI,WI) 56 – 38

It comes from a comment on MyDD and documents that to date, Obama has won or tied every election day in this primary. If Clinton wins on 3/4, it will be her first delegate win of the race!
