By our count, the Clinton campaign hasn’t publicly announced the support of a new superdelegate since just after February 5. Indeed, since Super Tuesday, Obama has gained 47 new superdelegates, while Clinton has lost seven (including Eliot Spitzer). Does Clinton have a bigger problem on the superdelegate front than folks realize?
Actually, make that 48 supers for Obama.
So since March 4, the delegate count is:
OH +66 +75
TX +99 +94
RI +8 +13
VT +9 +6
WY +7 +5
MS +19 +14
IA +9 -1
Final Certified Results Adjustments
CA +3 -3
CO -4 +4
NY -1 +1
IL +2 -2
Total 217 206
Then there's the super delegate stuff. Todd says Clinton has lost seven and Obama gained 47 (48 after today's addition) since Feb. 5. I don't know when those additions and subtractions occurred in relation to March 4, so I can't add them to my little chart above.
But all together, it proves once again that real momentum -- that gauged by actual numbers and results -- and not what the media tells us, is still firmly in Obama direction.
