Third Round of PA Delegate Updates

6 more delegates from PA determined. We now have 156 out of 158. Almost done.

Today we also have 2 superdelegate declarations.

In PA today 4 delegates went to Obama, and 2 to Clinton. The total for PA is now 83 Clinton, 73 Obama. (That’s 53.2% Clinton as opposed to the 59.3% she needed to be on pace to win the nomination.)

The superdelegates split evenly, with 1 each to Clinton and Obama.

So, new stats:

The new delegate count is: Obama 1724, Clinton 1589, Edwards 18

In percent terms that is: Obama 51.8%, Clinton 47.7%, Edwards 0.5%

(Before PA it was: Obama 52.0%, Clinton 47.4%, Edwards 0.6%)

2025 delegates are needed to win.

There are 717 delegates yet to be determined.

Obama needs 301 more delegates to win.

Clinton needs 436 more delegates to win.

In percentage terms, that means:

Obama needs 42.0% of the remaining delegates to win. (It was 42.9% before PA.)

Clinton needs 60.8% of the remaining delegates to win. (It was 59.3% before PA.)

Note: CNN still has not posted PA delegate results on the Republican side.
