Delegates after Guam

No supers today. Just the Guam delegates. As mentioned earlier, the split was 2 for Obama and 2 for Clinton. There is apparently an automatic recount because the margin was only 7 votes. That might affect the “Who won Guam” bragging rights, but there is no way it will affect the delegate count. That will stay 2 to 2.

Updated stats:

The new delegate count is: Obama 1736, Clinton 1599, Edwards 19

In percent terms that is: Obama 51.8%, Clinton 47.7%, Edwards 0.6%

2025 delegates are needed to win.

There are 694 delegates yet to be determined.

Obama needs 289 more delegates to win.

Clinton needs 426 more delegates to win.

In percentage terms, that means:

Obama needs 41.6% of the remaining delegates to win. (It was 41.7% before Guam.)

Clinton needs 61.4% of the remaining delegates to win. (It was 61.3% before Guam.)

(Still no update on the final 2 Democratic delegates from the Pennsylvania primaries, or on ANY of the delegates from the Republican Pennsylvania primaries.)
