Clinton set for win in West Virginia but is it too little too late?

Text size Aa Aa

Hillary Clinton looks set for a big win today in the Democratic presidential race but even if she does take West Virginia it could be too late to resurrect her bid for the White House .

Although she has an advantage of at least 20 points in the West Virginian opinion polls, a win there will barely dent her rival´s lead.

But with only 28 delegates up for grabs in that state, Barack Obama is looking ahead to Kentucky and Oregon as he shrugged off what some see as an an inevitable but inconsequential win by Clinton.

To secure the Democratic nomination, a candidate needs the support of 2,025 delegates at the party convention in August. Obama is an estimated 150 delegates short of the target while Clinton is 300.

And Obama has been making significant gains among the 800 crucial so-called supper delegates who are free to back any candidate.

As Obama´s campaign rolls on, many predict it’s the end of the road for Clinton.
