Now that we know the general outcomes from last night's two primaries, the estimated delegate counts are becoming clearer.

According to Associated Press estimates (which include unpledged delegates), Sen. Barack Obama currently has 1,846 of the 2,025 delegates needed to gain the Democratic Party nomination, while Sen. Hillary Clinton has 1,696. The New York Times projects Sen. Barack Obama to have 1,848 delegates and Sen. Hillary Clinton 1,686. MSNBC reports that, including estimated superdelegates, Obama leads the Democratic count with 1,848, while Clinton has 1,696.
