Re: Never Mind De Blasio

Superdelegates can select any candidate they want without having to follow who their state voted for. In 2016, Hillary had 572 1/2 superdelegates and there were 96 who did not endorse anybody. Add those together you get 668 1/2. That means Hillary could have been as much of 28% of the way towards the nomination before any state had a say. Considering Democrats donít do winner take all in their primaries, that sort of lead is almost impossible to make up unless you win an overwhelming majority of states or get the superdelegates to flip and there was no indication that the latter was ever happening. With such a monumental head start for their opponent, no legitimate candidate wanted to get involved.
