With former DNC chairman Roy Romer endorsing Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, this morning that makes a net gain of 26 superdelegates for Obama in the last week over Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY.

That completely — numerically — negates Clinton’s pending West Virginia victory today. The Mountain State has 28 pledged delegates.

(None of which is to say that for the general election Obama doesn’t have a huge task ahead of him to convince these white working-class voters that he understands and cares about their problems. But the math is the math.)
