Delegate counter: call the races yourself

Use CNN's Democratic delegate counter.

Use CNN's Democratic delegate counter.

(CNN)—As Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama head into the final 10 primaries and caucuses, CNN has a delegate guide to help you see how the remaining contests could determine the Democratic nominee.

By adjusting the sliders for each contest, you can see how different delegate counts would potentially affect your favorite candidate. The calculator uses updated CNN delegate estimates, and awards no delegates to a candidate who receives less than 15 percent of the vote in a state.

    What about our Soldiers?

    Hillary has cause the death of many with one vote and now she using FEAR to generate votes. Fear was use to start the IRAQ WAR. FEAR was use to elect Bush.

    Fear cause the death of many

    Fear was used to try to prevent Women and Blacks from voting.

    Fear was the tool that people use to sway people in the wrong direction.

    Don't let Hillary Use Fear to Scare You to Vote For Her.

    Voters, don't be distracted by these serial Hillary bashers. All they are promoting is hatred. We've known Hillary for years cause she's been in the public eye, and there will be no surprises. Hillary is a figher and she will fight for us. She is a candidate with solutions to help fix our economy, our country. She CAN and WILL deliver. Vote for HILLARY!

    What would be really good is to get away from the primary map and start looking at the map for the GE. Obama can’t win Ohio or Florida, Michigan is iffy, and the southern states that typically go will republican, will still go republican. On top of that there are millions of democrats like me who will either sit home or cross party lines when the candidate they are supporting does not win the election. We democrats better hope that McCain does something really disastrous.

    Clearly for those of us who stay informed by keeping up with the news. If a candidate for President really wanted True Change, they would push for each citizen to maximize their abilities and economical independence. Of course, most of Sen. Obama's backing comes from the least experienced with life, naive and/or gullible, and those who think they are above the rest by their mental aptitude (you are to be considered intelligent and bright if you are supporting his candidacy). They are living off of either parental support or loans, vote because their skin color matches his, or we have the so-called top educated who believe they have all the answers to tell others how to live. It only takes someone to work in the academia to see what a caste system it is, based on one's level of education. In other words, if you are not a PhD all other employees are lumped in together and separated from them either by way of benefits, opportunities, etc.

    It would be interesting to see how he attempts to change the political process. Is he going to openly denounce all Congressmen, Supreme Court Justices, etc. who do not agree with him? Will they then have to endure what the ABC debate commentators have been exposed to the last few days? It is so ironic to see an individual who speaks of unity and prosperity for all Americans to have created such a divisive line amongst many. They are already bullying Sen. Clinton's supporters who refuse to support him as the presidential candidate as not being true Democrats. One can be a Democrat, and not believe in the individual who is selected by the party to be their candidate. That is called, "Freedom of Choice". Ooops, that might not be around for much longer.

    It is amazing how much we are learning in this election. I never knew this much about super delegates all that crapt. If nothing else this election has educated alot of the American public about how things really work.

    The math speaks for itself. She will not catch him even by a large margin because what little he gets will continue to increase his lead no matter what she does.

    The race should end after Pennsyvania primaries for Clinton. She doesn't have the Popular vote, Gallup vote, and her lead has decrease since her last TV ad of "Chaos" has lost her chances of bringing in any vote for her. People want a uniter to stand up for our country not scare us half to death.

    This is neat CNN! And this is exactly why Hillary should get out of this race. . . .what is she trying to prove? She has to win every state by at least 15% or more and then hope the superdelegates vote for her, which ain’t going to happen.
    This is very damaging to the Democratic Party. Hillary has tried to change the rules to this contest every chance she gets. New Hillary rule: Now, it’s not about delegates and numbers, it about being a fighter. . . Please. She will stop at nothing to win. She would sale her own soul to the devil to win. . . all I can do is shake my head at how sad she really is.

    This is phony, Clinton did NOT win Michigan and Florida, you need to have a disqualified color like orange indicating that those two states do not count. Your chart gives the appearance that they somehow count towards Clinton when they do not. Obama wasn't even on the ballot in Michigan.

    I don't care.

    Either way–the shaft is what America gets-the politicians get the gold mine.

    There is no way Hillary could catch Obama on the pledged delegates. She wants to use the super delegates to over turn the will of the people. That would not happen.

    Give me Hillary OR give me Barak, but give me a Dem in the White House. We need to keep our eyes on the prize...the Supreme Court.

    Obama is going to win Penn. tonight. That is going to be the shocker to the Clintons and most of the media.

    Nevada should be given to Senator Obama. He won more delegates.
