THERE IS A CURE FOR IGNORANT: AN EXPLANATION OF SUPERDELEGATES TO TIM DAVIS AT VIEWS FROM THE RIGHT SIDE

The reactionary kids in the room over at Views From The Right Side have expressed many times in the past their depth of knowledge about the United States Constitution. However, these same self proclaimed “patriots” have little or no knowledge of the process by which each party chooses its candidate for President. After Bernie Sanders’ victory last night in the New Hampshire primary, many took to Twitter and Facebook to attempt to scare the bejeezus out of Sanders supporters and add to the untrustworthiness meme of candidate Clinton, by stating that Clinton was leading because of the number of superdelegates in her column.

Well the number of superdelegates Clinton has won the support of so far is 355; Sanders currently has 14. To gain a better understanding of superdelegates and how they work, read this. Now this takes me to Tim’s comment at their blog, “Unsurprisingly, granny klintoon claims all the sooper de la gates from New Hampshire. No one saw that coming.” Clinton didn’t claim the superdelegates from New Hampshire last night because those superdelegates were in her corner from day 1.

You see superdelegates on the Democratic Party side come from five places: distinguished party leaders, Governors, US Senators, US Representatives and members of the Democratic National Committee. There are 712 superdelegates on the Democratic side and 437 on the GOP side. These are unpledged delagtes to the convention of each party which means they can vote for whoever they please. These delegates make up 17.6% of the total number of those for the GOP and 14.6% of the DNC. Therefore it is possible for each party to have the run to a nomination winning total shortened they have never swung a convention. So all the bluster about superdelegeates right now is nothing more than hot air. Those supporting Trump or anyone hoping for a GOP victory in 2016 should be much more worried about this.

  1. neocon01 Says:

    so the OLD white, communist hag has more delegates than the OLD white, communist fruitcake…. BFD…yawn….

    meanwhile the GOP has TWO youthful Hispanics as front runners…

    • We would not characterize anyone in the remaining field on the GOP side other than Trump as a front runner. The situation will be fluid until 1 March 2016.

  2. You got it wrong. My last name is legally and has been since my birth, Allen-Davis. You see even in the 1870’s people had hyphenated names. This was usually done to keep important
    family connections.

    And your ability to detect sarcasm has not changed. granny klintoon started with the sooper de la gates. I do believe I have said so in the past. The boing boing boinie supporters though, have no clue. They think one person, one vote, actually means that.

    They still do not understand that comrad stalin is the one counting the votes.

    Bye and next time get my name right.
