Puerto Rico Primary Prediction Contest
Puerto Rico holds its Democratic presidential primary vote today -- one of only three contests remaining in the race between Sens. Barack Obama (Ill.) and Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.)
For Fixistas, the dwindling number of primary votes means your opportunities for winning a coveted official Fix t-shirt are running out. (Never fear -- we are currently scheming about other contests by which to award shirts.)
Clinton, less than 24 hours removed from a startling rebuke from the Democratic National Committee's Rules and Bylaws arm, is favored to win Puerto Rico and the majority of its 55 pledged delegates today.
Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have campaigned aggressively there while Obama has largely ignored the state -- choosing instead to focus his time in potential general election battlegrounds.
Polling in the contest is sparse but what there is of it seems to show Clinton with a comfortable double-digit lead.
By now, you guys know the rules. Offer your order of finish (with percentages) in the comments section below. Closest to the pin wins a t-shirt. We also still want a prediction of what the storyline will be coming out of today's vote; tack that on after your order-of-finish prediction and double your chances of winning a Fix t-shirt.
Polling places close in Puerto Rico at 3 p.m. eastern time, so no predictions made after that time will be eligible. Also, you MUST make your prediction in the comments section for it to count. Any predictions emailed to the Fix will be ruled ineligible.
Go to it!
