The Democratic Race between Obama and Clinton is Getting Tighter and Tighter

According to CNN, Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are only separated by less than 1% when it comes to the votes cast on Super Tuesday.

NEW YORK (CNN) — Just how sharply are Democrats divided between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton? Of all the votes cast on Super Tuesday for the two candidates nationwide, they are only separated by 0.4 of a percentage point. By midday Wednesday, 14,645,638 votes were reported cast for either Obama or Clinton on Tuesday. Clinton had won 7,350,238 of those votes (50.2 percent) while Obama captured 7,295,400 votes (49.8 percent).

Most precincts had reported 100 percent of their votes by Wednesday, though some districts had yet to complete their count. Many of those votes are in in New Mexico, where CNN has yet to declare a winner, and in California, where a sizeable number of absentee votes have yet to be tallied.
