Presidential preference poll delayed
The Democratic Party was expected to announced the results of its presidential preference poll today. But convention chairman Kirk Watson told the convention that there are so many delegates the count cannot be completed, and the result will be announced tomorrow morning. Some of the delegates are privately suspicious something questionable is occurring, but I've also learned that sometimes the public explanation can be taken at face value. Remember about one-third of the national delegates are bound to vote based on the presidential delegate preference poll. We'll see if the theme of unity -- expressed throughout the convention -- will continue through the convention.
