I Just heard Tad Divine say

that Sanders started 350 delegates behind and has made up about 50 delegates since March. That can't be true because she gained delegates in New York and in the 5 East Coast Primary states anybody have the figures?

Clinton's pledged delegate lead peaked at 314 after Mar. 15 primaries. Fell to 208 after Wisconsin. But will be back up to ~300 after today.

...at the end of March Clinton was ahead by 218. At the end of April it was 289 and at the end of May it was 268. It's now at 275. Where that 50 came from is beyond me.

Not only that, but Clinton has been steadily increasing her superdelegate lead, she now leads by 501.

Must be more Bernie math.
