The Odd Facts of Delegate Numbers in California

I will not pretend to understand the very complex rules of the California Democratic Party with regard to delegate counts after the Primary.

I do know these two things:

A. It’s possible for a popular vote winner, like Hillary Clinton by nearly 10 points, to wind up with less delegates than the popular vote loser.

B. If a candidate gets 62% or more in a Congressional district they are awarded an extra delegate. HRC got just one district at 67%.

How will the delegates be divided? I don’t know but I’ll be looking online for more information. My guess is that Barrack Obama will have nearly as many delegates as Clinton after the dust settles.
