If it walks like a duck...

The numbers speak for themselves on the New Hampshire primary:

Head to head comparison - corrected numbers
Clinton: statewide optical scan tally
95,843 52.73%

Obama: statewide optical scan tally
85,910 47.27%

Clinton: statewide hand-count tally
16,767 46.75%

Obama: hand count
19,097 53.25%

1/5 - 1/7 Real Clear Politics seven poll average (head-to-head pairing)
Clinton 43.9%
Obama 56.1%.

The closeness of the match of the two candidates hand-count with the Real
Clear Politics seven-poll average (1/5 - 1/7/08) - and the divergence of
the optical scan tally - remains under investigation.
