Clinton Extends Her Delegate Lead In March 15th Primaries (The map above of March 15th primary states is from bbc.com.)
Five delegate-rich states went to the polls to vote in the Democratic primary on March 15th -- Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, and Missouri. Hillary Clinton had a very good night, winning four of those states -- Florida by 31.2 points, North Carolina by 13.9 points, Ohio by 13.8 points, and Illinois by 1.6 points. Clinton and Sanders virtually split the vote in Missouri. As I write this, with 99% of the vote in, Clinton leads by a scant 0.2 points.
Here are the voting results in those states:
FLORIDA
Clinton...............64.5%
Sanders...............33.3%
NORTH CAROLINA
Clinton...............54.6%
Sanders...............40.7%
OHIO
Clinton...............56.5%
Sanders...............42.7%
ILLINOIS
Clinton...............50.4%
Sanders...............48.8%
MISSOURI
Clinton...............49.6%
Sanders...............49.4%
What this means is that Hillary Clinton has significantly increased her lead in delegates over Bernie Sanders. Here is the current total of delegates for each candidate (with some delegates still to be determined in the March 15th states):
Hillary Clinton...............1559
Bernie Sanders...............800
