The map above shows a county by country breakdown of the Democratic Presidential primaries. Counties won by Hilary Clinton are shown in gold and those won by Bernie Sanders are shown in green (ties are in dark grey).
Candidates needed 2,383 delegates to win the nomination.
Overall, here’s how the totals broke-down:
- Hillary Clinton: 2,842 delegates (2,271 pledged + 571 superdelegates); 55.2% of popular vote
- Bernie Sanders: 1,865 delegates (1,820 pledged + 45 superdelegates); 43.1% of popular vote
Therefore, while Clinton did not win the nomination with pledged delegates alone, she did receive more votes and a greater share of pledged delegates compared to Sanders.
