Interesting stats and analysis from MyDD.
Among Democratic primary voters, Hillary Clinton leads in the popular vote by 52% - 48%.
Barack Obama is ahead 59% - 41% among both independent and Republican voters who have participated in the Democratic primaries.

AMERICABlog crunches some other numbers, and delivers its own mathematical intrigue:

(By the way, I don't know if it is just me, but doesn't it look like that Democratic donkey in the new party logo is galloping downhill? Interesting symbolism...)
