The Popular Vote above is based on official returns from the 4 April Primary. This Presidential Primary coincides with a state/local primary. These coinciding primaries tend to have an impact upon voter turnout.
4 April 2000: Unpledged delegate preference update: Gore 24, Bradley 0. Unpledged delegates appear in the "Soft Unpledged" field.
Here's how we compute the delegate count:
Delegate Estimate: Even though the Congressional District vote is not yet available Gore has most likely won at least 83 of the 104 district delegates (Bradley's 21% showing would most likely limit Bradley to about 1 delegate in each of the 21 congressional districts). Gore, the only active candidate to receive 15% of the statewide vote will receive the 35 at-large and 21 pledged PLEO delegates. Gore estimate is then 139 delegates. The remaining 21 delegates remain "available" however most of them will go to Bradley.
Tuesday 4 April 2000: 160 of 191 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are allocated to presidential contenders based on the results of the voting in today's Pennsylvania Presidential Primary.
The remaining 31 National Convention delegates consist of 28 Unpledged PLEOs and 3 Unpledged "add-on"s; these 31 delegates will go to the Democratic National Convention officially "Unpledged".
"The breakdown of Unpledged Party Leader and Elected Official delegates to the Democratic National Convention below is somewhat different from that provided by the Democratic Party: the reason for this is that the one or more of its Members of Congress are also members of the Democratic National Committee and are considered to be DNC members (i.e. "Party Leaders") rather than Democratic office holders (i.e. "Elected Officials") by the Party. However, it is the opinion of "The Green Papers" that the average voter/citizen or other interested party who accesses this website would more readily identify Party Leaders who are also Elected Officials by their political office rather than their status as members of the DNC and we, therefore, count them as Elected Officials rather than as Party Leaders in the following breakdown:"
