It’s astonishing how some people are still so mislead about what superdelegates actually are supposed to do. I’m extremely sceptical that they would actually undercut the outright winner of the popular vote, no matter the margin. Even if that was supposed to be their inteded funtion, if the DNC actually allowed it would seem like political suicide for much of the current Democratic establishment.
The real function they seem to be doing is totally obfuscating the true amount of delegates the contenders actually need to get to win the popular vote, and therefore the nomination. Just ask yourself why almost all of the superdelegates sided with one specific candidate so early on.** Media narrative is everything** and artificially inflating the delegate count to make it seem that one potential nominee is way behind the other will make it that much harder for the underdog candidate. *Only till resently *did major media sources start to report the delegate count without the superdelegates. It would be intersting to see a general poll on how many democratic voters understood what the superdelegates actually are.
The superdelegates have done their part.
