If Hillary has more pledged Delegates why should they all switch and swing to Bernie?
I know you didn't address this question to me, but I'd like to take a swing at it anyway.
For starters, I'm not suggesting that all the super delegates switch to Bernie if he can't win a majority of pledged delegates.
But....if super delegates are going to endorse candidates prior to knowing who's going to have that majority, the least they could do is to be
reflective of their respective constituencies.
After Bernie won Wisconsin by 14 percentage points, I heard it reported that all 10 of the states super delegates were still endorsing Hillary.
Yesterday while being interviewed on MSNBC, I listened to Sly James, (Mayor of Kansas City, MO. and democratic super delegate) state that he was going
to back Hillary even if Bernie ends up with a majority of pledged delegates. Go figure!
Furthermore, they should consider the fact that most of the states where Hillary has won are red states in the Deep South and neither her or Bernie
will win those states in a national election. It doesn't really do a lot of good to only win in states that the republicans will carry in
Bernie is winning in the states that will carry the election for the democrats in November, Hillary is not.
