It takes 2,383 delegates to win the Democratic nomination for president. A look at where the race for those delegates stands, based on an Associated Press count:
These are the delegates won in primaries and caucuses. At the party’s national convention, these delegates must vote for the candidate who won them.
Hillary Clinton: 1,812
Bernie Sanders: 1,521
These are elected and party officials who automatically attend the convention and can vote for the candidate of their choice. The AP has surveyed these delegates several times and noted their on-the-record endorsements.
These delegates, however, can change their minds.
Clinton needs 23 delegates to reach the 2,383 needed to win.
Sanders needs 816 delegates to clinch the nomination.
These are the pledged delegates to be chosen in upcoming races and the superdelegates who have yet to commit to either Clinton or Sanders.
