States Where Obama Won > 60%

Here's a nice bit of perspective I got this morning:

States & elections won with 60% or more of the vote:
BARACK OBAMA: 15 States + DC + VI
* Virgin Islands (89.9%)
* Idaho (79%)
* Hawaii (76%)
* Alaska (75%)
* District of Columbia (75%)
* Kansas (74%)
* Washington (68%)
* Nebraska (68%)
* Minnesota (67%)
* Colorado (67%)
* Georgia (67%)
* Illinois (65%)
* Virginia (64%)
* Maryland (62%)
* North Dakota (61%)
* Wyoming (61%)
* Mississippi (61%)

HILLARY CLINTON: 2 States
* Arkansas (70%)
* West Virginia (67)



Barack also won Philadelphia alone with more votes than Hillary got in the entire state of West Virginia!

Just to add to your realistic thinking, in Washington State after the Legislative District caucuses Barack's pledged delegate percentage grew to 70.5% (if memory is serving me well this morning).

I think Hillary is using the Bushian technique of if you say something loud enough and often enough, people will believe it. But hopefully that is outdated thinking and a return to the data is always helpful. Thanks!

In Feb, Obama won 59% of the state delegates in Maine. Maine's state convention is on May 31 and June 1 so watch to see if Obama extends his pledged delegate advantage from Maine to 60%+
