6:30 p.m. CNN characterizes Hillary Clinton will win West Virginia by “a wide margin.” MSNBC states exit polls show Clinton will win by a 2:1 margin. Clinton now has won 17 states, plus Florida, Michigan, and American Samoa.

6:36 p.m. An MSNBC reporter following the Clinton campaign states there are “two realities” – the one held by the Clintons and one held by everybody else. The reporter added that the numbers show the race is over, but the actions of the Clintons reveal otherwise.

6:41 p.m. The Fox News exit poll showed Clinton with 68 percent of the vote and Obama with 32 percent.

6:54 p.m. Clinton has now won states totaling 283 Electoral College votes (including Florida, but not Michigan), compared to just 217 for Obama.

7:06 p.m. If Clinton actually pulls off a 2:1 victory over Obama tonight, it will be one of the largest primary margin of victories of the campaign – and the largest for Clinton outside of her home state of Arkansas. The most lopsided primary (not caucus) states so far:

Arkansas: Clinton 70%, Obama 26%
Georgia: Obama 66%, Clinton 31%
Illinois: Obama 65%, Clinton 33%
Virginia: Obama 64%, Clinton 35%
Mississippi: Obama 61%, Clinton 37%
Maryland: Obama 60%, Clinton 37%

7:30 p.m. (1% reporting)
Clinton = 56%
Obama = 36%

7:32 p.m. In an interesting note about the importance of primary rules and procedures, if the Democrats had instituted the “winner-take-all” system that was implemented in several of the Republican primaries, Hillary Clinton would lead Barack Obama in the delegate count 1,688 to 1,376 (excluding Florida and Michigan).

Clinton = 60%
Obama = 34%

8:05 p.m. MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann just suggested Clinton’s continued fundraising activities are a “scam,” because she has no chance to become the Democratic Party’s nominee. MSNBC has been criticized routinely this primary season for being “in the tank” for Barack Obama. No less than Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly has rushed to the defense of Hillary Clinton on several occasions this year – drawing contrast to the treatment given to her by MSNBC.
