“about 15 percent of the total delegates who will attend this summer’s convention are “unpledged” and free to vote for whichever candidate they want, regardless of who won in their state or district. These unpledged delegates are the superdelegates, and they are made up of elected officials, like members of Congress, notable members of the party, like President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, and members of the Democratic National Committee.
On Feb. 9, 2016, at the New Hampshire primary, Sanders earned 15 pledged delegates and Clinton earned 9, based on the percentage of votes they received. Sanders won the popular vote by 22 percentage points. But because of support from the New Hampshire governor, a senator and other state officials — aka superdelegates — Clinton ultimately left that state with as many delegates as Sanders.”
Well…that just cant possibly be a bad idea, now can it?…
Sounds like establishment thievery, of the democratic nomination…if you ask me, anyway.
