“Superdelegates” still exist, but they only get to vote from the second ballot onwards, if the first ballot does not produce a winner.
And the first ballot almost always produces a winner.
So, effectively: there really aren’t superdelegates voting for the nominee.
As it stands.
But… the DNC is scheming to f*** Bernie Sanders again.
A small group of Democratic National Committee members has privately begun gauging support for a plan to potentially weaken Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign and head off a brokered convention.In conversations on the sidelines of a DNC executive committee meeting and in telephone calls and texts in recent days, about a half-dozen members have discussed the possibility of a policy reversal to ensure that so-called superdelegates can vote on the first ballot at the party’s national convention. Such a move would increase the influence of DNC members, members of Congress and other top party officials, who now must wait until the second ballot to have their say if the convention is contested.
“I do believe we should re-open the rules. I hear it from others as well,” one DNC member said in a text message last week to William Owen, a DNC member from Tennessee who does not support re-opening the rules.
Owen, who declined to identify the member, said the member added in a text that “It would be hard though. We could force a meeting or on the floor.”
What did those nice Bernie Sanders’ staffers say…? Oh right: If Bernie doesn’t win, “cities will burn,” starting with the DNC Convention in Milwaukee.
Civil war in the Democrat Party?
please please please please please please
ohhhh please please please please please please please
If you could see me, you would see I have my surprised face on.
Remind me again who the fascists are?
Bernie boys (and girls, and all the others) have promised violence, even cities on fire, if Bernie gets cheated this time.
Of course, Bernie would never tell them if he planned this whole thing just so he can get more goodies like a vaca home, maybe a yacht or island somewhere……like he did last time.
I respect Bernie to a point, but I really want to understand what a Bernie supporter expects to happen if he’s elected president.
If they really want socialism/communism, I really have an issue.
@Nathan Blue: They expect to have a really good time until the toilet paper and food runs out.
