Two new Democrats have entered the race — Michael Bloomberg and Deval Patrick. And several have left. I need to reset the database again.

But before I do, here is the count between now and the last reset. In this count there has been a flood of traffic from Daily Kos. It appears that the Kossacks really like Elizabeth Warren. (I wonder if they read her book promoting stay-at-home motherhood…)

**Second Round:**

Here are the vote counts for the second round. A candidate gets a vote if he/she has the highest number of stars in the truncated ballot. If multiple candidates get the same, highest, star count, then multiple candidates get a vote. In this sense, the second round is somewhere between Plurality and Approval.

Candidate | Votes |
---|---|

Elizabeth Warren | 54 |

Bernie Sanders | 30 |

And the winner is: **Elizabeth Warren**
