Sorry that it's been awhile since posting updated results of the 2016 USA Presidential Primary race and state results.
Here is an excellent website (by the New York Times, still the greatest newspaper in the world :mrgreen: ) charting the ongoing primaries for both the Republicans and Democrats. ... nd-results

If you click on the "National Map" it brings up an interactive map detailing all the delegate counts for each candidate, state-by-state and county-by-county. It is really good.

Again, behind the race, as usual, but here are the stats and maps of the New York Presidential Primaries won by Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton:

Trump won 60.4% of the vote with 524,932 votes cast, garnering 89 delegates
John Kasich, 25.1% with 217.904 votes, and 4 delegates
Ted Cruz, 14.5% with 126,904 votes, and 0 delegates

Clinton won 58.0% of the vote with 1,054,083 votes cast, garnering 139 delegates

[what is interesting about the Democrat Primary is the state map where Clinton won the big urban areas such as NYC while Sanders won the vast majority of everywhere else]

Yesterday, Donald Trump swept all the Republican state primaries and Clinton won all but Rhode Island vs. Bernie Sanders.
However, the state voting results in Pennsylvania (won by Clinton) shows an interesting picture when viewed more closely, county by county, for there were many close election results. Please see the Pennsylvania primary election map at
For all the states' primary results for both Republican and Democrat candidates see
Indiana is May 3rd and California is June 7th with 172 Republican delegates and 546 Democrat delegates up for grabs.
The total delegate count as of today: Trump = 953, Cruz = 546, Rubio = 171, Kasich = 153; Clinton = 1650, Sanders = 1348 (Although Clinton has a 519-39 lead in "super delegates," these people at the convention could switch to Sanders if he were to have received more pledged delegates (the 1650 vs. 1348) by the time the Democrat Convention begins in Philadelphia July 25-28, 2016.

Voting results from Tuesday's Presidential Primary elections in Indiana brought both a surprise victory and a sad note. On the positive side, Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democrat primary by a vote count of 331,707 (52.7%) to 297,150 (47.3%), gaining 44 pledged delegates. (Clinton received 38 delegates.) On the negative side, first Ted Cruz dropped out of the Republican race and, then, John Kasich suspended his run. Donald Trump amassed 587,706 votes (53.3%) to Cruz's 404,327 and Kasich's 82,786, thus winning all 57 delegates. see reference credit http://www.nytimes/elections/results/indiana for the county-by-county voting for all five candidates (just scroll your mouse over each county to see the votes for each).
Clinton now has 1,701 pledged delegates to Sanders 1,411. Next primaries are in West Virginia, Kentucky, Oregon, and the state of Washington - May 10, 17, and 24. California is June 7 with 546 pledged delegates for the Democrat Primary. New Jersey, which is also June 7, has 142 delegates. No Democrat primary is winner-take-all. Go Bernie!!

It was fantastic that Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in Tuesday's Democrat primary for President in the state of West Virginia.
He garnered 51.4% of the vote versus Clinton's 35.8%. More importantly, Mr. Sanders won every county in West Virginia. On the Republican side, Donald Trump won easily in West Virginia and Nebraska since he now has no competition, as both Ted Cruz and John Kasich have dropped out of the race.
see for a look at the county-by-county voting in both states.
The pledged delegate count is now Clinton with 1,716 delegates to Sanders 1,433 delegates. 2,383 is the magic number for the Democrat nominee at the party's convention. May 17 is the next date for the Democrats with primaries in Kentucky (61) and Oregon (74). May 24 is the state of Washington primary (44 delegates). June 7 is California (546 delegates) and New Jersey (142) and New Mexico (43). see www://nytimes/interactive/2016/us/elections

Yesterday, at the Democrat Primary in Kentucky the final results were extremely close. Unfortunately, Clinton defeated Sanders with a final vote count of:
212,550 votes (46.8%) to 210,626 votes (46.3%) and both candidates received 27 delegates.
The deciding factor for Clinton's narrow victory was in the county where Louisville is located (the largest urban area in Kentucky). There she won 64,090 votes to Sanders' 45,048 votes, whereas in Lexington (the home of the University of Kentucky) Clinton won by only 20,014 to 17,048 and in Franklin County, where the state capital, Frankfort, is located Sanders won there with 5,398 votes to 5,218 votes. Looking at the state map and the voting tabulations for each county it was clear that Sanders won a majority of the counties and nearly all the east and west regions of the Bluegrass state. Sanders won Oregon's primary definitively with a raw vote of 309,422 votes (55.8%) to Clinton's 245,509 votes (44.2%) and winning every county in Oregon except one county, where Clinton won 101 to 100 votes. In the county where Portland is located, Multnomah County, Sanders won 75,923 votes (56.1%) to 59,505 (43.9%) and in Lane County where Eugene - the University of Oregon is there - is located Sanders defeated Clinton 41,883 (61%) to 26,772 (39%). The pledged delegate count is now Clinton with 1,767 delegates to Sanders 1,488 delegates. There are 930 pledged delegate votes left with 546 in California and New Jersey with 142 delegates, both primaries on June 7.
