There are inconsistencies in the media reports about the Popular Votes & Delegate Allocations.

Most news networks don't cite their sources, many aren't updated as new ballots are still being counted from previous elections, and more importantly they aren't transparent and don't show the math. The only place on the internet which does show all the sources plus the math is TheGreenPapers.com.

Please be wary of any selective numbers being reported in the media unless they link to Official sources, show when they were updated, and begin showing the math.

My Popular Votes & Delegate Count are close to GreenPapers, though there are differences due to when our last check of the Secretary of State offices took place and when we updated our Super Delegates from DemConWatch.
