Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner and presumptive nominee for US president in 2016 has more votes, more states, more delegates (with a 707-delegate lead over Bernie’s 1,565 to 858), and more super delegates than Bernie Sanders (1,129 to 835 – a difference of 294), who had hoped to clinch more delegate wins. Although this news fades out that hope; Bernie can still, in theory, win each of the remaining contests (primary elections) by 16 points (if Bernie wins 76% of the remaining delegates) but anything less means he will not win the nomination (if Hillary wins at least 41% of the remaining votes).
Republican delegate count:
• Donald J. Trump 656 (has won 47% of allocated delegates)
• Ted Cruz : 408 (29%)
• Marco Rubio : 172 (12%)
• John Kasich : 138 (10%)
Trump needs to win 55% of remaining delegates (including 60 left from last night) to reach 1,237 (for the win (1,237 delegates)).
Ted Cruz needs to win 79% of remaining delegates (including 60 left from last night) (to reach 1,237)
*Marco Rubio has conceded; ends campaign on Tues, 15 Mar 2016, as Donald Trump overwhelms him in his home state of Florida; Trump 45% to Rubio’s 28% (of the vote).
John Kasich needs to win 104% of the remaining delegates (including 60 left from last night) (to reach 1,237)
