Obviously Hillary Clinton is going to win today in West Virginia. So let the confetti drop and congratulations to Hillary Clinton but, she will still be behind in delegates, Superdelegates, popular votes, and States Won after tonight. There are only five states left and Barack Obama will continue to be the front runner for the Democratic Nomination and the strongest candidate to face McCain in November.

It\’s funny though how the media are emphasizing that Hillary Clinton may win by 20% or more points in West Virginia after Obama has beaten Clinton by those margins in most of the States he beat her. During this campaign in the States like Texas and Indiana she has squeaked out her wins while Obama has decisively won states like North Carolina, Virginia, Wisconsin and others by large margins.

Democrats Obama-Clinton Spread
Total Delegates 1872 – 1698 Obama + 174
Super Delegates 281 – 272 Obama + 9
Pledged Delegates 1591 – 1426 Obama + 165
Popular Vote 49.5 – 47.3 Obama +2.2
Popular Vote (w/FL) 48.7 – 47.4 Obama +1.3
Nat\’l RCP Average 48.0 – 42.7 Obama +5.3
