Obama is projected to be the winner, Clinton & Edwards are fighting for 2nd place.

Clinton lost by a landslide....they were projecting she might run into trouble down the road if she didn't come in within single digits to Obama in S.C.

I don't know if it makes that much of a difference in the long run. From what I had read previously, African-Americans made up about half the registered Democratic voters in SC, and they went overwhelmingly for Obama, something that was expected. The big battles will be in ten days on Super Tuesday, when more than 20 states hold their primaries.

Gotta agree with Moose, Obama is the one that has an uphill battle from here on.

Let's look at the present delegate point totals
Clinton - 246 Obama - 173

Here are the polling numbers in some of the delegate rich states:

New York 281 delegates
Clinton - 50% Obama - 27.5%

California 370 delegates

Clinton - 40% Obama - 20%

New Jersey 107 delegates
Clinton - 46% Obama - 28%

Florida (No delegate votes this year)
Clinton - 46.8% Obama - 28%
