2008 Super Tuesday Primary Election Results

McCain Widens Delegate Lead – Clinton Can’t Shake Obama

With the race for the White House as hot as ever, the focus on delegate counts seems to be at a modern historic high. John McCain took a large step toward securing the Republican nomination for President on Super Tuesday by winning 601 pledged delegates. He now has a total of 1,000 combined pledged- and super-delegates and leads Romney by 434 delegates. McCain needs 488 more delegates to gain his Party’s nomination (1,191 total). Mitt Romney secured 176 delegates in Super Tuesday voting while Mike Huckabee impressively kept pace with 147 delegates.

On the Democratic side, the nomination is still up for grabs which is making delegate counting a fun exercise. Barack Obama won more states in Super Tuesday voting yet Hillary Clinton emerged with more delegates, 739, to Obama’s 700 delegates. In total Clinton leads Obama in a tight delegate race, 1,000 to 902. The candidate securing 2,025 delegates wins the nomination.
