WASHINGTON D.C. — Here are some states that have been called late by the networks.

– Arizona for McCain and Clinton
– North Dakota for Romney
– Idaho for Obama
– Minnesota for Romney and Obama

According to NBC’s Chuck Todd, the delegate totals from the states so far (which includes more or less everything important but California) look like this:

Obama: 594 delegates
Clinton: 546 delegates

McCain: 400-650 delegates
Romney: 170-428 delegates

On the Democratic side, Obama has won more states than Clinton (with particularly strong luck in small states and caucus states), but Clinton has won larger states. California is still the big kahuna.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
