Many of you know me from my silly diaries and/or comments, but what you may not know is that I also have a serious side.

It's located below the fold.

A post by Kos earlier tonight inspired me to wonder about how the state-by-state pledged delegate margins stacked up against each other, and that ultimately led to the following:


States that Hillary Clinton won

 State  Total Pledged  Delegate Split  Net Gain (% of Total Pledged) 
 Arkansas  35 delegates  C+27 / O+8  19 delegates (54.3%) 
 Oklahoma  38 delegates  C+24 / O+14  10 delegates (26.3%) 
 New York  232 delegates  C+139 / O+93  46 delegates (19.8%) 
 Massachusetts  93 delegates  C+55 / O+38  17 delegates (18.3%) 
 Tennessee  68 delegates  C+40 / O+28  12 delegates (17.6%) 
 California1  370 delegates  C+204 / O+160  44 delegates (11.9%) 
 New Jersey  107 delegates  C+59 / O+48  11 delegates (10.3%) 
 Arizona  56 delegates  C+31 / O+25  6 delegates (10.7%) 
 Nevada  25 delegates  C+12 / O+13  1 delegate (4.0%) 
 New Hampshire2  22 delegates  C+9 / O+9  0 delegates (0.0%) 

Notes
1. There are 6 pledged delegates that have not been awarded in California
2. John Edwards received the other 4 delegates in New Hampshire

  • Combined Total Pledged: 1,046 delegates

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
