2016 Democratic Delegate Scorecard

Targets list the candidates budgeted path to victory in getting the nomination. [Based on the Cook Political Report, located here: http://cookpolitical.com/story/9179]

How this works: The scorecard below is not a prediction or forecast. Rather, it’s a tool to gauge Clinton’s and Sanders’s true progress towards the nomination. At any given point in the primaries, the candidate who exceeds his or her cumulative delegate target should be regarded as the frontrunner.
