DemDaily: The Calendar and Current Count

April 27, 2016

As we enter the final stretch of the presidential nomination process, an update on the Count and remaining Calendar contests.
In last night's 5-state primary Clinton won Maryland, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, and Sanders took Rhode Island. Under the Dem's proportionate system Hillary won 272 delegates and Bernie 146.
Although Trump swept all five states for a gain of 109 delegates, the R's hybrid state/congressional district allocation still allowed Cruz to pick up 3 delegates and Kasich 5.
While the total count varies greatly among major national publications and sources, the AP's hard count as of 5:30pm today stands at:
The Count
Democrats Delegates Super Delegates Total Delegates
To-Date
Total Needed to
 Win Nomination
Hillary Clinton 1,644 520 2,164 2,383
Bernie Sanders 1,316 39 1,355
Republicans Delegates (R's Don't have Supers) Total Delegates To-Date
Donald Trump 987 987
1,237
Ted Cruz 562 562
John Kasich 153 153
There are 10 primaries or caucuses remaining for Republicans and 14 for Democrats before their respective nominating conventions in July.  While no debates are on the schedule for R's, the Dems are expected to face off once more in May (to be scheduled).
