Hillary's Last Stand

South Dakota and Montana vote Tuesday, for a total of 31 delegates at stake in the last two primary contests. There are also 205 super delegates who haven’t yet made their vote public.

Tonight Barack leads Hillary 2070 delegates to 1915. He needs 48 more delegates to clinch the nomination.

Hillary would need 203 delegates to take the nomination away from Barack. These numbers reflect Hillary’s win in Puerto Rico Sunday as well the “half a vote” compromise worked out Saturday to seat the delegates from Michigan and Florida. Barack would need an additional 86 delegates to eliminate any lingering questions about Michigan and Florida.
