I know what you’re saying — it’s already over. Yeah, yeah. I know.
But Hillary’s still fighting and states are still voting.
That said, a look at the delegate counter suggests this could well be over long before the last states vote on June 3. After Kentucky and Oregon vote Tuesday, Obama will likely need only about one-third of the remaining super delegates to pledge their support and he’ll have the nomination locked up, regardless of what happens in Montana, South Dakota, and Puerto Rico.
It’s important to note that some Hillary aids are suggesting the “magic number” is actually larger than the 2,026 that the rest of us are counting (because they’re factoring in Michigan and Florida). That may mean that Hillary will stay in this thing even after the loss is officially inevitable.
