Lot of people, many of them (tellingly) Bernie supporters, just do NOT seem to get the raison d’être as to why the Democratic Party (the DNC) has Superdelegates.

Delegates that honor the will of the people are the NORMAL delegates! That is already in place. These are the so called PLEDGED delegates. They reflect the will of the voters. Done. Given.

The whole point of having Superdelegates, per the DNC, is to temper the will of the voters IF proven, professional democrats — many of whom have won elections — believe that the will of the voters may not be to the best strategic interest of the Party.

Simple as that.

Plus why single out New Hampshire. There are Superdelegates in every State. There were Superdelegates in Iowa.

Plus why should folks from outside of New Hampshire have any say in our Superdelegates.

Here is something that will get the Bernie folks riled. Bill Clinton is a Superdelegate in New York State! Guess who will get his vote.

The AP equivalent of the CNN numbers shown above. Click to ENLARGE. The ratio is still the same. Click to ENLARGE. Google “democratic primary delegate” to get LATEST version of this from AP via Google.


Why the Bernie Sanders’ crowd REFUSES to acknowledge these numbers is a mystery to I. Yes, we had similar in 2008 with Obama and Hillary, BUT Obama had a huge lead, nationwide — something Bernie does NOT have and will not have. Sanders cannot, given the proportional distribution of the ‘normal’ delegates, hope to overcome this chasm.

Iowa Caucus: Hillary Clinton Won By 59.6% To Bernie Sanders 40.4% WHEN 8 Superdelegates Were Allocated.

by Anura Guruge


Just amazes me as to how many voters (especially Bernie supporters) do NOT understand about Superdelegates and their PIVOTAL role in shaping who the Democratic nominee will be. In reality the reason the Democratic Party has Superdelegates is to ensure that the ‘Party’ will have some say in who the eventual nominee will be. That is why they are called ‘Super’. The chosen. Iowa has 8 Superdelegates and they can (and will) throw their lot behind who they think should be the nominee irrespective of what the voters voted.

Hillary Clinton got ALL 8 of the Iowa Superdelegates.

So the REAL outcome of the Iowa caucus was (and I put this together for YOU):

iowasuperdelegates


Overall this is where we currently stand.

Yes, this CAN change and it did in 2008
(with Superdelegates switching over to Obama)

superdelegatesfeb22016

Bernie has a BIGGER uphill climb than 98% of Bernie Sanders’ supporters understand.

The whole process is proportional.

So before the Superdelegates they will both, like in Iowa, get a similar number of delegates.

Then the Supers put Hillary over the top.
