Michigan Primary--Jan 15



The Democrats punished Michigan for moving up its primary by ruling that no delegate votes would be awarded to Michigan at the nominating convention. Obama and Edwards pulled out, so only Hillary is on the Democrat ballot. Anti-Clinton people are urging Dems to vote for uncommitted delegates.

Among the Republicans, McCain won Michigan 8 years ago. Michigan is one of those states where anyone can ask for either ballot, and some Democrats were then urging their people to take a Republican ballot to sabotage them. (I don't know how successful that was.)

Romney was born in Michigan, and his father served as Govenor there (but that was many, many years ago.)

Romney is concentrating on Michigan, which is a populous state with a lot of delegates. I just looked at a poll which showed Romney ahead of McCain by 1 point (which is within the margin of error for the poll).

At least Clinton is showing that she still thinks Michigan counts unlike the other front runners. Ignore a whole State at your peril, even if their votes don't count this time around.

As far as I know, Clinton is not doing anyting in Michigan. She did not withdraw her name from the ballot, but a win against no opponents for zero votes when no candidate has campaigned there will not mean much. (Even if the uncommitted delegates win against hers, it will only be an embarrassment.)
