Hillary's delegate lead shrinks! March 16th it was 319 elected delegates. On April 7th 212 delegates [View all]

April 7, 2016
Another Path to Victory for Bernie Sanders
by Doug Johnson Hatlem

Update: this morning the New York Times delegate count included +31 from Washington with an asterisk next to the total. A previous version of this article included +5 for Sanders in Arizona from the original AP delegate count. As expected, now that the results certified Tuesday have been included in the AP totals, Sanders has gained three delegates in Arizona; Clinton has lost two. An additional delegate shifted from the Sanders column to the Clinton column overnight somewhere, it seems. I have not yet figured out where. This means that the race currently stands at +212 delegates for Clinton. On March 16, her lead stood at +319.

You get an F in math. The superdelegates do not vote until it goes to the convention. You cannot pad Land of Enchantment Apr 2016 #27
