Tsunami Tuesday and the Delegates Up for Grabs

All the early voting states are now behind us. The big deal is Tsunami Tuesday, Feb. 5.

Delegates will matter. This map shows the states holding Democratic caucuses and primaries.

More than 1,500 delegates will be delivered from these states. 2,025 is the number needed to secure the nomination.

The delegate breakdown by states voting Feb. 5 is below:

Alabama Primary, 60 delegates
Alaska Caucus, 18 delegates
Arizona Primary, 67 delegates
Arkansas Primary, 47 delegates
California Primary, 441 delegates
Colorado Caucus, 71 delegates
Connecticut Primary, 60 delegates
Delaware Primary, 23 delegates
Georgia Primary, 103 delegates
Idaho Caucus, 23 delegates
Illinois Primary, 185 delegates
Kansas Caucus, 41 delegates
Massachusetts Primary, 121 delegates
Minnesota Caucus, 88 delegates
Missouri Primary, 88 delegates
New Jersey Primary, 127 delegates
New Mexico Caucus, 38 delegates
New York Primary, 281 delegates
North Dakota Caucus, 21 delegates
Oklahoma Primary, 47 delegates
Tennessee Primary, 85 delegates
Utah Primary, 29 delegates
Democrats Abroad Primary, 11 delegates

Iowa had 50, New Hampshire 30, Nevada 33, and South Carolina 54.

Since it's not winner take all, delegates can change and there are Super Delagates to take into account, it's more than a little uncertain who will benefit most on Feb. 5.

Even if Hillary wins big in California, New York, Massachussetts and New Jersey, and Obama wins big in Illinois, Georgia and Alabama, it still may not be settled.

Here's the latest on New Jersey, New York, California and Massachussetts.

    Is there some significance to the (none / 0) (#1)

    Again, I'm no artist. I took a map from google and cut out all the states that weren't voting. Don't even ask how long it took!

    I also rearranged (none / 0) (#3)
    by Jeralyn on Wed Jan 30, 2008 at 12:39:17 AM EST
    the ones that were left so that the size of the graphic would fit in the blog. I moved Alaska to the top left and moved the east coast states quite a bit west. I only have 350 pixels to work with on the front page. But it's close enough and I didn't move any states out of order.

    Quite impressive! (none / 0) (#4)

    I assume everyone agrees that Gravel has Alaska locked down.

    Is it 2025 minus Super Delegates? I saw (none / 0) (#8)

    somewhere a factoring of the number needed in primaries and caucuses minus Super Delegates -- since those aren't selected in primaries and caucuses.  It made Super Tuesday even more interesting to forecast.

    you forgot (none / 0) (#9)

    American Samoa and Democrats abroad, i guess that is kinda like Poland?

    see the list in the post.

    They just aren't in the graphic because they weren't on the map I used.

    by Saul on Wed Jan 30, 2008 at 07:50:11 AM EST
    How many Super Delegates are there?   What are their names and what do polls show on who they will  vote for?

    How many Florida and Michigan (none / 0) (#15)

    delegates were (not)allocated and who got them?

    Florida would have had 218 but Obama probably got some of those.
