    President Obama lost more than 40 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s Kentucky Democratic primary to the “uncommitted” option — the latest example of the incumbent president failing to win votes in an uncompetitive primary. With 99 percent of precincts reporting in the Bluegrass State, Obama led “uncommitted” just 58 percent to 42 percent. Obama trailed in more than 60 Kentucky counties. It was just the latest episode of the president taking less than 60 percent of the vote in a primary this year. He ceded 41 percent of the vote in West Virginia to an incarcerated man in Texas...

However, turning to Twitter, it is possible to see some scattered reports of uncommitted delegates being elected at the county-level.Iowa City’s precinct 15 appears to have elected 3 Obama county delegates and a single uncommitted delegate.

    UNCOMMITTED 2008. Fred Thompson should not drop out. He should, instead, campaign for an Open Convention, allowing every voter a choice. America’s Primary System needs to be challenged. Since Fred Thompson’s address to his supporters early Saturday evening, his campaign has been silent, a silence becoming louder by the hour. Precious time on the ground in Florida is being wasted as Senator Thompson ponders his next step. The pressure and crocodile tears from competitors follows his sharing of a weak third place with Mitt Romney in South Carolina. The networks have already removed him from their lists, though it was...

The vote could give backers of Barack Obama, John Edwards, Bill Richardson and Joe Biden some of the uncommitted slots when Democrats hold district...
