Delegates Count

Obama campaign pledged delegate tracker:
  1. There are 3,253 pledged delegates. Barack Obama leads Hillary Clinton 1,419 to 1,250 in this category. Clinton needs to win two-thirds of the remaining 566 delegates to secure a majority.
  2. Of the 795 superdelegates, 301 are governors, senators, or congressmen. They support Obama, 105 to 97. (99 undecided.)
  3. 417 are DNC members or distinguished party leaders. They support Clinton, 153-119. (145 undecided.)

Just more evidence for what we already knew: Sen. Clinton is the candidate of insiders. Barack Obama is the candidate of the voters.
