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.

    Read what split meant that "Primary and caucuses won by different candidates."

    So before people go posting about who won what, at least read something first. Use your minds, I did. That's why I support Hillary.

  2. Obama is a GODSEND

    Clinton needs to win the remaining states by 26% margin to overtake Obama.....Not likely.

    So even if you move the slider for ALL states to 60/40 for Hillary, she STILL doesn't have enough delegates to catch up to Obama without the superdelegates.

    Not only is she not going to win the rest of the states by a 60/40 margin, she is not going to get the complete remainder of the superdelegates.

    What does all this mean? She cannot win.

    In fact, if you move the slider for the superdelegates to 50/50 then even with a 60/40 win for every state left, Obama actually goes over the mark, Hillary is still behind.

    Barack Obama wins Pennsylvania by 5 points. I think that a majority of the 250,000 newly registered democratic voters in PA will vote for him.

    Hey BBonnet,
    Obama won more delegates in Texas. Now, explain to me, how did Hillary win Texas?

    Obama Won Texas. Give it a rest. The same system that helped Bill Clinton in the 1990's now put Obama ahead in the state. Learn your history and let it go already.

    Interesting. Give Hillary 10 point lead in PA, IN, PR, and Super Delegates. Obama still wins the nomination.

    Way to go Hillary.

    She can't win with pledged delegates...
    She can't win the popular vote...

    The only way she can win is by manipualting the superdelegates and overturning the will of the people...

    It's just wrong – so wrong

    "BBonet", you are the perfect blogger for the Klintons because just like Hillary's campaign...you are in denial. We all want our candidate to do well, but lying is not Presidential.

    sorry BBoney buy Obama ended up winning Texas and the MSM is just to lazy to tell everyone about it. Who got more pledged delegates out of Texas? HMMMMM answer is OBAMA. Time for Billary to slink away into the shadows and continue being the junior Senator from New York.

    Hillary won Mich, Ohio, Florida... If the dems don't win those in the general... it's over!
    Something to remember... PA of course will be very important as well.

    If Obama becomes the nominee, Dems lose by a landslide in Nov.
    Just the opposite will occur when Hillary becomes the nominee riding on her double-digit victory in PA.

    Obama won Texas,
    the facts are the facts
    numbers do not lie,

    why is CNN doing this, we k now CNN (clinton national news network) supports, loves adores and is infatuated with the clinton machine, and billary
    however, the facts are the facts, numbers do not lie, if millions of people are giving to Senator Obama all over the country the millions of donors can not be ignored as much as CNN and Billary want .......

    April 22 (Bloomberg) - Hillary Clinton criticizes Saudi oil wealth while her husband benefits from its largess. She opposes a Colombian trade agreement that he supports. And she condemns China while his foundation solicits donations there.

    If you want to talk popular vote then yes Clinton did win Texas. Unfortunately that's not how Texas works so Obama did indeed win Texas. Don't push that Clinton won just because you're bitter. We all know the rules of the game, don't try to change them after the fact.

    Give me a break CNN, you are the only network still under the delusion that Texas is still in play. You projected Hillary the winner the night of the primary. She won. He may get more delegates due to the very urban areas, but she won the popular vote. SHE WON. Get over it. Obama cannot win the general, he loses Florida by a landslide and Ohio too. You need one or both to win and Obama CANNOT do it. If Obama wins the democratic nomination then get ready for McCain on 09. Wake up.

  20. we wanh hillary, not mccain...screw him.

    Hillary -- Texas is with you!!!! Obama will not defeat McCain in Nov. All you Obama supporters remember this.
    By The Way...it's a known fact that not only here in Texas but across the U.S. Democrats will prefer to vote for McCain instead of Obama in Nov elections. This includes me and many democrats here in Texas that already have their mind made up.

    Obama won more delegates. Clinton won the popular vote. She has no reason to continue.

    I'd like to point out a major media bias and false reporting of the facts. Barack Obama ended up winning Texas once all caucuses were factored in, or don't they count for something, so add the dark blue please. Also, how many times does it have to be explained that Florida and Michigan don't country because they didn't play by the rules. Now you guys are not playing by the rules. White please!
    I know I know you media guys just want a drag down out and out fight don't you. Thy name is provocation, CNN! Shame on you!
