FiveThirtyEight

Politics

Just a very quick, and probably obvious follow-up thought on my post from yesterday.

Why invest so much effort, as the Clinton campaign is already doing, in arguing that you’re ahead in the version of the popular vote that includes the uncontested primary in Michigan, an argument that neither pundits nor superdelegates will find persuasive? Because then you look much more reasonable when you suggest later on that just Florida should be included.
