2016 Super Tuesday vs. 2008

By the numbers:

2008
BHO: 13 states: Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Utah.
HRC: 9 states + American Samoa: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee.
Pledged delegates: BHO 847, HRC: 834
HRC actually won the aggregate popular vote 46-45 percent.

2016
HRC: 7 states: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia
BS: 4 states: Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Vermont
Pledged delegates: HRC 504, BS: 340

For the record: yes, President Obama carried Massachusetts and Virginia twice. So she won some “blue” states. And Oklahoma: long shot at best. So Sanders carried one solidly red state.

As it stands:

Democrats: HRC leads 10-5 in terms of states, leads 577-394 in pledged delegates.
Republicans: Trump has a 10-4-1 lead (Cruz 4 states, Rubio 1) with 338-230-109-27-8 lead in pledged delegates (Cruz, Rubio, Kasich, Carson..with Carson dropping out today)
