The Elected Delegate Count March 2, 2016 Clinton 595 Sanders 405 Nomination Remains Wide Open

This does not include 479 "super delegates" who can "jump shit" and vote for Sanders or Clinton at the convention.
If Clinton is indicted by the Department of Justice regarding her e-mails before the convention it's likely that most of her "super delegates" will abandon her and vote for Bernie Sanders.

Here's the state by state elected (earned) delegate count so far:


CLINTON SANDERS

IOWA 23 21

NEW HAMPSHIRE 9 15

NEVADA 19 15

SOUTH CAROLINA 39 14

VIRGINIA 61 32

GEORGIA 72 28

OKLAHOMA 16 21

VERMONT 0 16

MASSACHUSETTS 46 45

COLORADO 28 38

ARKANSAS 22 10

MINNESOTA 29 46

TEXAS 144 73

ALABAMA 44 9

TENNESSEE 42 22

1. Thank you

 

No one owns the super delegates, they are free to vote for Bernie.

6. Yes they are.

 


And I believe many will change their votes to Bernie if he does well in the major delegate states such as California, New York, Pennsylvania.

Clinton carried the confederate south among Democrats but those states are safe Republican strongholds in the general election.

3. It is also important to note that the West Coast has not voted yet

I expect Bernie will do very well on the west coast and not a single west coast ballot has been cast yet. Hillary's strongest support is in the south and once thise states have voted the rest of the primary calender is more favorable to Bernie, he can still win this.

4. Keep on Dreaming

She won't be indicted, the supers ain't gonna change, and by convention time Hillary will have many more than enough delegates withOUT the supers.
Bernie is running a fine campaign but his path to victory is getting narrower with primary result.

7. Hope she isn't indicted, however, we really don't know what will happen. My crystal ball is broke!

 


If she is indicted before the convention what impact do you think that would have on her presidential ambitions and campaign, if any?

14. She. Will. Not. Be. Indicted.

Keep hoping if that's what you gotta do. But it's a total waste of time.

8. It's not going to happen

It's wide open in the formal sense, but the math is really hard for Sanders from this point on. He'd have to win everything left by 60-70% in order to secure enough pledged delegates to catch up.

11. You think Bernie will only get 51% of the vote in California???!!! and 53% in New York??!!!

 


Well, I won't engage in wild unscientific speculation.

We don't know what Bernie "needs" in 35 states.

18. Who is "we" and where did you buy your crystal ball?

 

LOL

So you figured out exactly how any delegates Bernie needs to win in each of 35 different states!

I believe you are the only person in the entire country who has been able to achieve that incredible feat!

Since you know exactly what percentage of the vote Bernie will get in 35 states we should just accept your figures and not bother with actual voting!

15. Lookin' mighty fine. No wonder "they're" trying to get him to drop out AND

Working like busy little beavers to depress Sanders' enthusiasm.

We've got a race!

Run Bernie Run!
