The Obama campaign claims that Obama pulled more delegates from super Tuesday than Hillary-- 5-15 delegates more, depending upon the source.

Bloomberg news reports, 'We've won more states, we've won more votes and we've won more delegates than Senator Clinton,'' Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said during a conference call this morning. '"

Politico reports, "The Obama camp now projects topping Clinton by 13 delegates, 847 to 834."

Bloomberg reported that "Clinton's advisers said the two candidates would end up separated by no more than five or six delegates, who will decide the party's nominee for the general election."

That leaves ahead of Hillary on pledged delegates, but Hillary is still ahead of Obama overall because of superdelegates who have committed to her. There are still hundreds of superdelegates who have not yet committed and any superdelegate already committed can change sides at any time. 

Politico reported,

"Clinton was portrayed in many news accounts as the night’s big winner, but Obama’s campaign says he wound up with a higher total where it really counts — the delegates who will choose the party’s nominee at this summer’s Democratic convention.

With the delegate count still under way, NBC News said Obama appears to have won around 840 delegates in yesterday’s contests, while Clinton earned about 830 — “give or take a few,” Tim Russert, the network’s Washington bureau chief, said on the “Today” show.

The running totals for the two, which includes previous contests and the party officials known as “superdelegates,” are only about 70 delegates apart, Russert said.

The bottom line is that the two are virtually tied. 

Obama won 13 states, some of them smaller, and Clinton won eight.

On Wednesday morning, the battle was on to shape public perceptions about Tuesday.

The Clinton campaign said it was crunching its delegate numbers but was not sure it was correct that Obama got more.

The Obama campaign sent an e-mailed statement titled: “Obama wins Super Tuesday by winning more states and more delegates.”

The spin game is in play!
