About That Popular Vote

A sharp reader submits this observation:

According to Real Clear Politics, even after adding the Puerto Rico votes and the vote from Florida, Obama still leads the popular vote by more than 24,000. If you add Michigan and allocate him the uncommitted vote plus the estimates from the caucus states he leads by 44,000. Only if you add the Michigan vote and give him nothing from the state does she find a metric that gives her a lead.
