Clinton has to win 67% of remaining 8 states to catch Obama

23 March 2008 at 12:54:09 AM

States left and number of pledged delegates each state has:

Indiana - 72
Kentucky - 51
Montana - 16
North Carolina - 115
Oregon - 52
Pennsylvania - 158
South Dakota - 15
West Virginia - 28

Total number of pledged delegates remaining: 507
Total number of pledged delegates Obama is leading with: 171 or 157 (CNN vs. MSNBC)
507-171=336 is the number of delegates that would be left if Clinton caught Obama...with this in mind you can take the 171 plus 50%+1 of the remaining 336 and Clinton would have to receive 171+168 or 339 remaining pledged delegates to take the lead.
Now it's just math to determine the percentage she needs to win (339/507=66.9%).

I left off Puerto Rico with their 55 delegates, so the math would be:

562 remaining delegates
Obama lead: 171 or 157
171+196 (50%+1)=367
So 65.3% is needed to catch Obama when Puerto Rico is factored in.
