Declared Superdelegates- 574
Bernie SandersEarned by votes 1,828
Declared Superdelegates 48
Doing the math, Hillary needs only 180 superdelegates to clinch the nomination. Bernie needs 455.
Superdelegates are unpledged Democratic party leaders who are free to support any candidate. The majority of the 714 superdelegates have declared support for Mrs. Clinton.
The only way Bernie can get the Democratic nomination is by way of superdelegates. Many are already pledged to vote for Hillary, but they are allowed to change their vote at the convention in July. This is how Obama received the nomination 8 years ago; many superdelegates changed their plan and voted for him.
The superdelegates from your state will listen to you. With the link above, one email will reach every Clinton superdelegate from your state. There is a space to put a message of your choice. You can even write them every week, with a new message. Urge your friends and neighbors to do the same. http://www.lobbydelegates.com/delegates.php
