Obama within sight untouchable absolute majority delegates

According to Obama campaign email and website.

Barack Obama is just 17 elected delegates away from a majority...

At the start of this race, there were 3253 elected delegates at stake in primaries and caucuses across the country. After winning 32 of 49 contests, Barack is within reach of an absolute majority.

We believe that the winner of the majority of elected, pledged delegates should and will be the Democratic nominee.
