A top adviser to Democratic presidential underdog Sen. Bernie Sanders says the race against front-runner Hillary Clinton may have to be re-evaluated after Tuesday's five-state primary voting.

In an interview with NPR posted Saturday, senior campaign adviser Tad Devine said results from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Delaware could be a day of reckoning.

"If we think we've made enough progress, then we'll keep on the path that we're on," Devine said. "If we think we have to, you know, take a different way or reevaluate, you know, we'll do it then. But right now, we think the best path beyond is the one we laid out months ago."

Hillary Clinton has collected 1,428 delegates to Sanders' 1,153, according to Real Clear Politics

NPR reported Clinton’s current delegate lead is more than twice as large as then-Sen. Barack Obama’s lead in 2008.

"There's a pathway to victory for Sen. Sanders, but I think you know it's certainly gotten brambled," Neil Sroka of the progressive group Democracy for America, which supports the Vermont lawmaker, told NPR.

"There is not a single doubt in my mind that the strong campaign that Bernie Sanders is waging right now is making the Democratic Party better, stronger and more focused on the populist progressive issues that we need to take on if we are going to be successful in November."

But Mo Elleithee, executive director of the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service, and a Clinton campaign worker in 2008, says the fight against Clinton has been straight uphill.

"We were behind," Elleithee told NPR. "We had a late burst of momentum. But the math was never there for us."
