Fuzzy Math in Texas?

At 9:48pm ET, CNN is reporting the following results in Texas:

Obama: 579,152
Clinton: 506,197

Total votes: 1,085,349

Yet, only 6% of precincts have reported results.

By that math, more than 18 million Texas Democrats would be voting in today's election.

The total population of Texas is 23 million.


Update: The consensus is that the early numbers reflected "early voting." Late deciders broke overwhelmingly to Clinton (61-38%).
