Despite the short notice and heavy workload during this election cycle, over 150 delegates from across California participated in CDC’s first ever online endorsement vote.
Although no candidate received the official 60% needed for an endorsement, the mix of grassroots participants shows a different story than most polls have typically indicated.
With 59 votes, Hillary Clinton barely squeaked past John Edwards’ 55 votes. Surprisingly, Barack Obama came in at a distant third with only 26 votes followed by Dennis Kucinich with 13.
While we obviously cannot draw any definite conclusions from this small sample of voters, it does seem to indicate that among California party regulars, there is a different type of battle going on when independents and not so ‘active’ voters aren’t added to the mix.Ã‚Â
