The Final, Final, Final Numbers from the Feb. 5 Primary

OK, on Saturday the Secretary of State's office released the final official canvass of the vote in California. The statewide numbers are here. The district-level numbers are here. A few notes:

• Turns out that, in final balloting, Hillary Clinton surged to 62.88% of the head-to-head vote in CA-51, giving her a 3-1 split in that district. So the final delegate numbers will be 204-166. So Clinton got 54.4% of the head-to-head vote against Barack Obama, and 55.14% of the delegates.

• The final percentage spread between Clinton and Obama was 8.3%, noticeably lower than previous reports.

• We had over 5 million voters participate in the California Democratic primary. That's 55% of the total votes cast and over SEVENTY-FOUR PERCENT of registered Democratic voters. Wow. Those numbers are here. We also received two million more votes in the Democratic primary than in the Republican primary. The total turnout was the highest ever by raw numbers, and the highest as a percentage of registered voters since 1980, when some guy named Reagan was on the ballot.

You can get to all the numbers from here, a lot of fun stuff in there.
