Senator Barack Obama still leads in popular vote and delegate count

As expected, Senator Hillary Clinton outshone Senator Obama in the Pennsylvania primary Tuesday, boosting her struggling campaign. Clinton says the win signals that the tide could be turning in her favor.

Although the former first lady is lagging behind Obama in the popular vote and delegate count and struggling with fund-raising, she now has some rationale as to why she keeps pushing on. The next two primaries are in Indiana and North Carolina. While Indiana is still up for grabs, polls show the Illinois senator is far ahead in North Carolina.
