Clinton Needs More Than 70% Now

The superdelegates just keep coming. Some new ones, plus at least one switcher this time. The net for today, 4 for Obama, 1 for Clinton. If the rush of superdelegates is going to come to Clinton’s rescue, they really need to start soon.

Updated stats:

The new delegate count is: Obama 1864, Clinton 1697, Edwards 19

In percent terms that is: Obama 52.1%, Clinton 47.4%, Edwards 0.5%

2025 delegates are needed to win.

There are 468 delegates yet to be determined.

Obama needs 161 more delegates to win.

Clinton needs 328 more delegates to win.

In percentage terms, that means:

Obama needs 34.4% of the remaining delegates to win. (It was 41.1% before IN/NC.)

Clinton needs 70.1% of the remaining delegates to win. (It was 62.0% before IN/NC.)

As noted in the title of this post this means that as of today Clinton passes the 70% mark.
