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.

    CNN, why are you not reporting on the provisional paper ballots at voting stations that have machine errors that DO NOT HAVE OBAMAS NAME ON THE BALLOT! Only Hillary shows up. This is a serious concern for voters!

    There are photos of these ballots all over the internet. Obama supporters and those concerned about voter rights need to be concerned and need to take action.

    Don't delete this CNN, like you do any other posts that don't favor Clinton! The public needs to know about this.

    You Obamobots (eg Dilly) make me laugh and laugh. Okay- clap clap clap- Obama won the CAUCUS in Texas- but gee, did NOT WIN THE PRIMARY. Kind of illustrates why the caucuses are SUCH A JOKE and not representative at all.

    And THE GE IS NOT A CAUCUS. Sorry- Obama can't rely on those activist bullies IF he gets the nomination.

    I find it really arrogant that people call Hillary a liar but not Obama...

    CNN, Hillary's supporters will acuse you to side with Obama. You are forcing them to face reality for the first time in months and to acknowledge that she can not win. How dare you. On top, you deprive Hillary of Texas. God for you you give her Florida and Michigan, two proper primaries where voters went to the poll with one criteria, name recognition.

  14. Obama Won Texas

    BBonnet, although Hillary won the primary and popular vote (many republican cross-overs, by the way) because Texas also has a caucus and Obama won that, he in fact was awarded more delegates from the state of Texas than Hillary was. Mathematically, this would mean he won the state of Texas.

    Not quite BBonnet. She narrowly won the primary, but Obama won the caucus. All in all, Obama picked up more delegates. I wouldn't exactly call that a "hands down" win for Hillary.

  16. Lynn - Florida

    As the media and the Clinton camp continue to keep her candidacy on life support, the attempt to look for importance in a raw vote comparison is totally misguided!

    For example, Senator Obama has won all 14 caucus contests to date. As a result of those contests alone, he has earned 320 delegates to Senator Clinton’s 172, or a 148 delegate advantage of almost 30%. This delegate selection process resulted in a total vote favorability of approximately 202,000 for Obama. Compare these victories to Senator Clinton’s win in Ohio. She picked up 75 delegates to Senator Obama’s 66, or a 9 delegate advantage of about 5%. Clinton’s Ohio win was backed by a 229,000 vote favorability. Can anyone seriously argue that her net 7,000 vote advantage in this comparison has any relevance when Obama’s delegate lead of 139 represents an advantage of 22%?

    To those that believe in the validity of a vote to vote comparison; I would suggest that you must also argue that six nickels are more valuable than five dimes and oranges can be used as a substitute when you make your next 4th of July pie.

    Sorry BBonnet. The primaries/caucuses ares not about the percentage win. It is about obtaining the most delegates. Obama netted more delegates out of Texas than Hillary, so the victory is his.

    A 24% marginal win in every remaining contest including today's, would still not give Clinton a win. Give me a break. Drop out after today, or we will have McCain for the next 4. The Mayan calender ends in 2012, Maybe McCain was destined to be the winner, and end the world?

    Thanks DillyWa, but you might have to say it again, They are still in denial.
    Clinton did not win Texas.

    April 22, 2008 01:12 pm at 1:12 pm |
  20. Obama 08

    Wow, Looks like Hillary can not win unless she wins ALL States by 25%. I doubt that will happen!

  21. Celia Ann in Michigan

    I predict that Senator Obama will win Pennsylvania by 1% and the race SHOULD be over. Senator Clinton has no money, actually, she has a truckload of debt.

    If he wins by 1% she should go home to New York and start working on the 200,000 jobs she promised them back in 2000.

  22. Dan in CO

    Give Hillary Pennsylvania 60/40, give her Indiana 60/40, give her Kentucky 70/30, give her West Virginia 70/30, give her Puerto Rico 75/25, and make North Carolina, Oregon, South Dakota, Guam, and Montana 50/50 ties.

    Now, such a blowout won't happen, but even if it does, Obama still leads by nearly 40 delegates.

  23. Obama will be President

    BBonet,
    Please explain HOW Clinton won Texas. You're math must be a product of the public school system.

  25. Wondering in Texas

    Uh, is it just me or are Florida and Michigan in Hillary's color?

    And for the record, OBAMA WON TEXAS. He won in spite of the last minute attack adds, latino voters in South Texas who probably aren't even citizens and Rush Limbaugh's little games. Some of my friends went along with Linbaugh's games by the way. They were so afraid of Obama's beating McCain they did vote for Hillary.

    Remember, Texas had the famous 2 step. Obama won the caucuses and he won the most delegates. I count that a win in Texas.
