"Romney likely to hit 'magic number' on Tuesday"? Wow.Submitted by Gunslinger0311 on Tue, 05/29/2012 - 08:50
Check out this gem from CNN this morning:
"(CNN) – Mitt Romney is expected to hit his party's "magic number" on Tuesday, unofficially clinching the Republican presidential nomination in a race he entered as the frontrunner and has had to himself for weeks."
This is an unbelievably misleading article. Check out the mention of the good doctor:
"Earlier this month, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said he would no longer actively campaign for the Republican nomination, effectively ending his third run for the Oval Office with 122 delegates.
When Santorum, Paul and others were still in the race, talk of a contested convention swirled and it seemed to some a realistic possibility that Romney might not reach the magic number before the last state votes in June."
Let's make sure we get CNN a lot of feedback on the inaccuracies contained within this piece.
One other observation I have...has anyone noticed how the major networks continue to use the delegate counts from the Associated Press? It's so fixed that with all of their in-house political pundits they can't come up with their own? Pretty sad when an independent group of citizens can put this together and they cannot:
