CNN - Wolf Blitzer Announces Poll Winner - "Democrats Around the World"

Re CNN Transcript from 2/21/08 (below).

Ron Paul Forum Member,

I sent the following email off to the "Situation Room" and Wolf Blitzer.

Here's the link if others could also send in their comments.

I'm hoping that other Ron Paul supporters will also send an email to Wolf.
And please share with your local Ron Paul MUG where you can.

Following is what I've sent to Wolf Blitzer at CNN -

Dear Wolf,
On Thursday you reported on how Democrats around the world voted - and Obama was the winner.
It's only fair that you now report how republicans around the world voted.
re http://www.whowouldtheworldelect.com/index.php
the results so far are -
Mike Huckabee - 1,111
John McCain - 1,272
Ron Paul - 64,242

The transcript of the CNN show follows:

Please join us, 7:00 p.m. Eastern, right here on CNN, for all of that, much more, and, of course, all the day's news -- Wolf, back to you.

BLITZER: Thanks very much, Lou, for that.

It's a primary that's not necessarily all that much talked about, but it still counts as a win. We're going to show you which Democratic candidate came ahead in the Democrats Abroad contest, the global primary. People all over the world participating, American citizens specifically.

And in today's political ticker, we'll show you what's going on there, as well.

We'll be right back.


BLITZER: In today's political ticker, make that 11 straight wins for Barack Obama. He apparently has appeal around the world, as Democrats living in other countries overwhelmingly picked him in a global primary. Democrats Abroad is a group approved by the Democratic Party. And Obama won about 65 percent of the vote.

Let's go back to Jack. He's got "The Cafferty File" -- Jack.

CAFFERTY: I didn't even know they were out there. Democrats around the world?


CAFFERTY: All right.

BLITZER: It takes about two weeks for them to do their voting.

CAFFERTY: Yes. And he got 65 percent. She's got her work cut out for her. Bill Clinton says if his wife doesn't win Texas, her candidacy is doomed.

To be fair, the Democratic vote they reported was an actual vote that elected delegates to the national convention. The Republican vote you referred to is just an internet poll.

wolf blitzer referred to it as "democrats abroad contest, the global primary"
and jack cafferty referred to it as "democrats around the world."
