Sanders trims Clinton’s lead in pledged delegates

Sanders won impressively last night (as expected) sweeping Hawaii, Alaska and Washington state. Though the New York Times is still tabulating the allocation of delegates in Washington state (101 up for grabs), my estimates are:

Alaska: 13-3 Sanders (NYT has this count)
Hawaii 17-8 Sanders (NYT has this count)
Washington: 74-27 Sanders (NYT still tabulating)
Total 104-38 Sanders, which means that the lead in pledged delegates is 234 for Clinton down from about 300. We’ll have more precise numbers over the next few days.

The delegate math for Sanders is still tough though, and Clinton is heavily favored to win delegate rich states such as Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania. She is even forecast to win in Wisconsin as well though that state should be very competitive.

Republicans: Donald Trump is doing well among “blue state” Republicans. The Nate Cohen article I linked to contains some interesting conjectures and ideas.
