Clinton emerged approximately 10 percentage points ahead of Obama, with strong victories among her core constituencies. However, Obama maintains a substantial lead in pledged delegates, which his campaign officials claim is too great to overcome this late in the race.

However, Clinton argues that Democrats should consider her wins in swing states and in the uncounted Florida and Michigan primaries before deciding which candidate should get the nomination.
