The latest delegate odds

Now that Oregon and Kentucky have spoken, it is time to update the delegate math...

Barak Obama has 1656 pledged delegates and 306super delegates for a total of 1962delegates.

Hillary Clinton has 1498 pledged delegates and 279 super delegates for a total of 1777 delegates.

Democratic candidates need 2026 delegates to win the nomination.
Obama therefore needs 64 more delegates (1962 + 64 = 2026).
Hillary needs 249 more delegates (1681 + 249 = 2026).

There are 302 available delegates. Obama needs 21.19% of them and Hillary needs 82.45% of them.

Hillary says she is staying the course, so it is on to Montana and South Dakota.
