Right, basically the MSM is trying to convince everyone that it's a lopsided race by artificially inflating Clinton's numbers.
The super delegate numbers shouldn't to anyone's totals right now. They only matter in the event of a contested convention.
The pledged delegate count should really be the one that's shown, but the media wants to discourage people on the fence about Bernie into voting for
Clinton. They want those people on the edge to give up on Bernie.
According to Wikipedia, the ACTUAL numbers are:
Bernie Sanders: 544
Hillary Clinton: 762
Those are the pledged delegates. Now that all the "easy" wins are over for Clinton, Sanders will continue to grab more pledged delegates at a higher
rate than Clinton.
If Sanders winds up winning more pledged delegates by convention time, those "super delegates" won't be so loyal to Clinton. NEVER in the history of
the party have the super delegates gone against the popular vote and hijacked a nomination. They won't.
At this early in the primaries ... and considering all the "sure wins" are over for Clinton, things may not be looking so bleak for Sanders as the
mainstream media WANTS everyone to believe.
