And I am heading to catch a plane to New Orleans for the 63rd Conference of the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR), from whence I'll blog. More details later. I will be off the grid as results from West Virginia come in, but Eric will put up an open comments thread and our friend Mark Lindeman should be dropping by.

Not sure I understand Pablano's analysis. If Clinton wins by 39% (say 69/30) and turnout is 300,000 the margin is 117,000. Msnbc is projecting 450,000. A thirty nine point win translates to 175,000 vote margin. Am I missing something?

Pablano was pretty close on the percentage but missed badly on the spread. When I first saw the 105,000 number I thought it was a misprint. Maybe it was.

Interesting... these results are the reverse of my state's contest.... Washington Democratic caucuses:
Obama 67.51%
Clinton 31.2%

We also had a primary that did not count where the contest was more competitive (Obama 51.22 % Clinton 45.67 %).

Having said that-- I hope Hillary gets the kudos she is due for winning West Virginia by such a huge margin. This is bigger than Obama's win in South Carolina.
