Obama wins again in Brockton

The polls opened early at Campanelli Stadium with a double header pushing ahead the night’s start time to 5:05 PM.  However voter turnout was strong and an early projection held true.  During the first game of the doubleheader, the public address announcer declared that with 10% of the votes tallied, Obama held a slight edge.  When all of the ballots were counted and verified (there will not be a re-count Florida), Obama had captured a majority vote of 52.3 percent.

Bobblection Week 2008 continues on Friday night in Charleston, South Carolina when the Charleston RiverDogs host the Rome Braves.  Analysts have not yet cast any projection. 

Brockton’s Bobblection was the second stop on the Bobblection Week 2008 tour.  On Wednesday in Hudson Valley, New York, the Hudson Valley Renegades saw Obama sneak away with a tight victory.
