Obama Nets Seven Iowa Delegates From Former Edwards Backers
By Eric Kleefeld - March 15, 2008, 8:13PM

The Iowa caucuses might have been over two months ago, but Barack Obama is still making gains off of them. In today's Iowa county Democratic conventions — which those caucus delegates were elected to participate in — Obama picked up the votes of roughly half of John Edwards' former supporters, netting him seven delegates.

Going into the June state Democratic convention, where the federal delegates will finally be selected, Obama is projected to have 23 delegates to Hillary Clinton's 14, with eight remaining delegates either still nominally for Edwards or uncommitted.

To put this in perspective, Hillary's total gains in the Ohio primary amounted to a net advantage of nine delegates.

A week ago the smart move was bowing out gracefully and setting up for 2012. Now...

To put this in perspective, Hillary came out of her "huge" victory in Ohio with a nine delegate advantage over Obama.

Ben Smith at politico.com is now that the swing in Obama's favor is actually +10:


He says Obama gained an additional eight formerly in Edwards camp and one from Hillary's.

Soooo, that would be +9 for Hillary from the Ohio primary and +10 for Obama from yesterday.
