Clinton Wins HUGE in Puerto Rico!

Hillary Clinton won Puerto Rico by a landslide.


According to politico.com,

"The cable networks called the island territory for Clinton the instant polls closed at 3:00 p.m., indicating a landslide; exit polls showed her winning virtually every group, including young voters typically loyal to nomination rival Barack Obama."

So she won Puerto Rico, what does that mean in November? Absolutely nothing. Puerto Rico has zero electoral votes, which means that Hillary wont get an advantage if she wins the democratic presidential nominee (which is the first task she needs to accomplish.)

But her win in Puerto Rico does have some significance, 70% of people who took the exit poll state that they have family members in New York and Florida. Which is a factor that helps explains why Hillary won Florida, but not the main reason. (Hillary would have won New York anyway because it's her home state)

Anyway, Final Score:

Clinton: 68%
Obama: 32%

Clinton keeps on winning states, even though people tell her to drop out. I have respect for her because of that. Keep on Truckin' until the end.

I don't mind her sticking with it.

I believe that if she brings a lawsuit or somethng like that after the party makes its decision that it will look bad on her and the party.

PR needs to make up its mind. Can't be ultra nationalists when you have no identity as an actual country.

i never knew other countries voted on our presidencies. we dont do the same for them... do we? in any event its pitiful that i dont even know, the average american is so stupid and out-of-touch with global issues. and, by definition, half of all americans are even stupider and out-of-toucher.
