What the delegate count looks like

From the Associated Press Worldstream earlier this evening, here's an overview of what the delegate count is looking like for both Democrats and Republicans:
McCain won 97 delegates in early voting Tuesday to 0 for Romney and 18 for former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. A total of 1,023 delegates are up for grabs in 21 states.

Overall, McCain led with 199 delegates, to 93 for Romney and 61 for Huckabee. It takes 1,191 to win the nomination at next summer's convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Obama had 31 delegates in early voting Tuesday, while Clinton had 21. A total of 1,681 delegates are at stake in 22 states and American Samoa.

Overall, that gave Clinton 285 delegates, to 236 for Obama, with 2,025 delegates required to claim the nomination in Denver at next summer's convention.
These numbers, of course, are for pledged delegates, not superdelegates, which Hillary Clinton has collected more of than Barack Obama has.
