Mississippi: another one for Obama
I wonder who the other three percent voted for.
This gives a 17 / 11 delegate split out of the state's 33 delegates, with 5 remaining to be allocated, so expect these numbers to change.
What really gets my head spinning is Mississippi's rather convoluted process. Everybody gave a collective eyebrow-raise at the complexity and confusion of the "Texas two-step," but it seems that Mississippi goes them one better. The state splits its primary election up into six sub-elections, to which a subset of the state's 33 delegates are allocated. There are then percentage ranges for the vote totals which yield different delegate splits.

At least it sounds like Mississippi voters only have to go to one voting place and vote one time, which I suppose is an advantage over Texas' system.
