The idea of superdelegates is a top down, anti-democratic policy aimed at sabotaging the bottom up, grassroots votes of the people. Not even the Republicans do anything like this. It is a way for establishment Democrats to grab undue, excessive influence. It is wrong. It is against the values and principles of Democrats and democracy. The DNC should immediately eliminate the policy of using insider superdelegates to exert unreasonable top down influence on elections that should be decided by voters.

This was always a bad policy that was based on the DNC's disrespect for and distrust of voters.
This article spells out some of the concerns and considerations.
I pledge to not donate to the DNC until this policy is terminated.
