These numbers can fluctuate as hard data by election district is made available along with the super delegate split.

In the primaries tomorrow, a total of 237 delegates are at stake and although Obama appears poised to win all three, it also appears Clinton will win her share of delegates. The fear of the Clinton campaign has to be more in the continued losses than the actual delegate count.
