California Delegates Awarded: 207 to 163
The New York Times has posted California's distribution of delegates from the Super Tuesday primary.
- Hillary 207
- Obama 163
NBC's Keith Olbermann and Dan Abrams tonight said Obama has a total of 861 delegates while Hillary has 855.
The New York Times says Hillary is ahead with 904 to Obama's 724.
That's a big discrepancy between NBC and the Times. Several of the states Obama won haven't yet awarded delegates according to the Times which may account for Obama's low total number. But, Hillary still has more from the Times than from NBC. Anyone know why?
As to how the Times counts delegates:
Many news organizations include delegate projections in their counts that are based on nonbinding votes for candidate preference, such as the Iowa caucuses. The New York Times counts only delegates that have been officially selected and are bound by their preferences.
To make things even more confusing, here's the San Jose Mercury News saying Hillary has 1000 to Obama's 902.
