A few more superdelegates today. Five for Obama. One for Clinton.
The new delegate count is: Obama 1909, Clinton 1718, Edwards 9
In percent terms that is: Obama 52.5%, Clinton 47.2%, Edwards 0.2%
2026 delegates are needed to win.
There are 414 delegates yet to be determined.
Obama needs 117 more delegates to win.
Clinton needs 308 more delegates to win.
In percentage terms, that means:
Obama needs 28.3% of the remaining delegates to win. (It was 33.7% before WV.)
Clinton needs 74.4% of the remaining delegates to win. (It was 70.8% before WV.)
Will Clinton get the 74.4% of the delegates from KY/OR that she needs to be on pace to win? Ha! Yeah right. At this point it is really just a countdown until Obama gets the number he needs. This may change from 2026 to a higher number depending on what is decided about Florida and Michigan, but even the Clinton getting absolutely her best case result out of that wouldn't be enough for her to catch up.
I'll still be glued to the TV for the results tonight anyway of course.
