 The following news release was sent out today by the Hillary Clinton Quarterly

The States Won by Hillary Clinton Control
63% of U.S. Gross Domestic Product.

 

Although Hillary Clinton is lagging in the total delegate count, after April 22nd’s impressive 10-point win over Barack Obama in Pennsylvania, she has added another economic powerhouse to her list of primary victories.

After doing an analysis of the Gross Domestic Product produced by each state, the states that Hillary Clinton has won contribute a whopping 63% of the total contested GDP, as compared to Barack Obama’s 37%.

Indeed, even if Obama won every primary still to come, he would still be several trillion dollars short of Hillary’s total.

The analysis was performed by Frank Marafiote, MBA, editor of the Hillary Clinton Quarterly using data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.

“While many people have commented on Hillary’s ability to win large, industrial states, no one has specifically defined what ‘large’ means other than delegate counts or population,” said Marafiote. “Our analysis shows that these states are not only rich in delegates and voters, they are incredibly rich economically, at least in terms of their contribution to the U.S. economy.”

According to the analysis, most of Obama’s victories — with the exception of his home state of Illinois — have come in second-tier economic states.

“The significance of this data cannot be overstated.” said Marafiote. “These states are the economic backbone and future of this country. That is where Hillary is winning. Even though ‘total states won’ and delegate counts get most of the attention, Hillary’s almost two-to-one lead in states that contribute the most to our economy sends an important message to the Democratic Party.”
