WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
From NBC News First Read:
Also note: Going back through our lists, we have taken two away [from] Hillary Clinton. One Clinton supporter, Ken Curtis, moved from Maine to Florida. (Florida is not included in the count, as the state has been stripped of its delegates to the national convention.) The other is Sarah Swisher (IA), who had been supporting Edwards then moved to Clinton and then switched to Obama last month. We added her in for Obama at the time, but still had her factored into our count for Clinton as well.We took Ken Curtis off of our non MI/FL count on February 28, almost 7 weeks ago.
And we moved Sarah Swisher from
I have a couple of suggestions for NBC:
- First, if they bothered to list the superdelegates who they were counting, then maybe some of their readers would have caught their mistakes. But they choose to keep this important information secret, and that therefore makes their numbers totally unverifiable.
- Second, someone should tell Chuck Todd and the rest of the NBC News Political Team about this new invention called a spreadsheet. You put the superdelegates names in one column and the candidate they're supporting in another. Makes it kind of hard to double count someone...
