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.

    No Matter... The Super Delagates are not stupid,

    Obama cannot beat McCain in the election, They are going to put Hillary in as the nominee, and then watch the blacks start rioting,
    looting, shooting and so on. They are not going to stand by and
    watch a black person loose, and the first thing they are going to
    say and call all Americans racists.

    In the end Obama won Texas where it really counts- don't hear CNN
    and not other news ouitlet saying much about that., Little states counts if they did not Hilliary would not want Fl and Mi delegates to count since she now need them to win. Who has won the most states
    the few larger states along beat the republicans. Super delegates you
    better think long and hard about this.

    You have to be pretty generous to Clinton in estimating results to give her any chance to win. She needs over 63% of all the remaining delegates.

    I was looking at CNN for a few minutes and i saw something very interesting that caught my eye & almost made me very sick . Some polling machines in Philadelphia seem to be "malfunctioning " in the Obama camp and I didn't hear anything else of it or anything happening like this at Sen. Clinton's polling areas....Is this going to be another Ohio 2004 where votes didn't count or Florida 2000 where the same thing happened.......?!?

    Obama won the caucus in texas, and there were clear discrepancies there. Caucuses should be outlawed. Obama did not win Texas.

    Obama won Texas by 5 delegates. The only reason some people believe otherwise is because of Clinton's shady political tricks. If you don't believe me look it up, the result is right here on CNN's website.

    Texas is over... lets just see what happens in Penn. Hillary is likely to win, but will she win by a large enough margin to recover the delegates lead? If for some reason she looses, I think it would be fair to call the nomination in favor of Obama. And there is about a snowballs chance in hell of a dream ticket.

    Obama did win Texas. You guys might want to change that.

    Sorry, BBonnet, but if you can count, it is clear that Obama won ... Obama received more delegates from Texas between the primary and the caucus.

    If you have a problem with how Texas handles their seats, consult state government. It has nothing to do with Obama.

    hands down? she won the popular vote. she lost the caucus so she didn't get the most delegates (this also happened in NV, by the way). this is a delegate race no matter who wants to spin it to look good for them. if hillary won texas hands down, barack will take a loss like that any day!

    Too bad Obama won more delegates in Texas. I would love to see Obama win PA.

    Heads up all!

    Mathematically Hillary Clinton MUST to win all the remaining states to be elected as the democratic presidential nominee:

    PA, IN, WV, OR, SD, Guam, NC, KY, MO, Puerto Rico and the Superdelegates with margins of 60-40 in order to win the nomination.

    A win in all states with 60% Clinton and 40% Obama.

    "Clinton, however, said the party would unite once the nominee emerged."

    He emerged some time ago.

    Time to unite behind Obama.

    The caucus system sucks. Obama won Texas because of a causus systme that allows a fraction of the true population to cast their vote. Without the caucuses, Obama would not be in the lead.

    BBonnet: Obama won more delegates. Get over it.

    One important number that reflects the electability in the general election is the number of electoral votes in the states won by each candidate. The other important number is the number of states that the democrats can win in November. The following is my observation. Mr. King, I wonder if you could comment on this in your election analysis.

    The 2008 general election, using the 2004 presidential election results as a reference, will essentially be divided between the “red” and “blue” states. The advantages that Obama had with the black voters and the caucus in the nomination process can disappear easily in those red states in the general election. When weighing in different voters compositions (races and genders) and the general perception about the candidates, Obama may lose one or two of big blue states such as CA, NY and PA, besides Ohio. Where can he find the electoral votes to win?

    Hillary has been able to capture most of the blue states in the primary, despite strong completions from Obama. If she is the democratic candidate, she has a very good chance to keep all the blue states in the camp, besides being favored in Ohio and Arkansas, and possibly FL.

    Obama won Texas. This is the delegate counter, and he got more of them, you lazy old women who cant stand in line for caucuses!

    "Clinton won Texas. Hands down. Give her the state."

    This is exactly the problem with the people backing Hillary, in the face of all the evidence what they believe matters more than the facts.

    What else do you believe about Hillary? The sickest irony of the entire campaign is Clinton supporters of being naive when in reality anyone being suckered by the compulsive liar Hillary needs to send me their bank details right away for their own security. I'll only be borrowing the money, and to be honest you're so gullible you don't need it. You're better off as broke as Clinton will leave America.

    I can see by reading all the remarks why we are so far behind other countries in education. If some of the people writing all this trash had a brain they would take it out and play with it.

    Clinton won Texa$ ... Texas with a dollar sign. Even so, she loses every other state, and every other country in the world, and every planet in the solar system, and every galaxy in the universe, and every universe in the ultrauniverse, etc.

    I gave clinton an 8 point lead in the remaining primaries and she still comes up short on delegates. If I am a democrat I'd be pretty pissed at this worthless exercise of delaying the inevitable while giving mcnasty a free ride. If the gloves don't fit you must Quit!
