April 26th States Make Their Presidential Preference Known
Yesterday's five-state primary turned out to be a big night for Hillary Clinton, as she won four out of the five states. She won big in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. She also won a closer victory in Connecticut. Bernie Sanders rather easily won Rhode Island.
Here are the results for each state:
CONNECTICUT
Clinton...............52%
Sanders...............47%
DELAWARE
Clinton...............60%
Sanders...............39%
MARYLAND
Clinton...............63%
Sanders...............33%
PENNSYLVANIA
Clinton...............56%
Sanders...............44%
RHODE ISLAND
Clinton...............43%
Sanders...............55%
But the important part of the night was what happened with the delegate totals. Here is how that stands, with some of Tuesday's delegates still to be determined (according to NBC News):
Primary/Caucus Delegates
Clinton...............1594
Sanders...............1297
difference...............297
Total Delegates
Clinton...............2117
Sanders...............1330
difference...............787
That means Hillary Clinton just needs to get 266 more delegates to win the nomination, while Bernie Sanders needs 1,053 more delegates. There are now 10 states left to vote (plus the District of Columbia, Virgin Islands, Guam, and Puerto Rico).
