Over 60% of Democratic Superdelegates Already Support Hillary

Big news. According to the Clinton campaign as reported by Mark Halperin and Jennifer Epstein at Bloomberg Politics:
As Hillary Clinton's campaign seeks to project dominance in a field that could soon include Vice President Joe Biden, her top advisers are touting a decisive edge on a little-discussed metric: superdelegate commitments.

At the Democratic National Committee meeting in Minneapolis, where she will speak Friday, senior Clinton campaign officials are claiming that she has already secured one-fifth of the pledges needed to win the Democratic presidential nomination. They come from current and former elected officials, committee officeholders, and other party dignitaries.
The campaign says that Clinton currently has about 130 superdelegates publicly backing her, but a person familiar with recent conversations in Minneapolis said that officials are telling supporters and the undecided in the last few days that private commitments increase that number to more than 440–about 20 percent of the number of delegates she would need to secure the nomination. ...
The Clinton camp’s claim to more than 440 delegates means she’s already wrapped up the support of over 60 percent of the approximately 713 superdelegates who under party rules are among those who cast votes for the nomination, along with delegates selected by rank-and-file voters in primaries and caucuses beginning next February. ... 
Barring some major scandal or controversy, and given Hillary and Bill Clinton's long-standing ties to Democratic Party elites, overcoming her superdelegate edge would be quite a challenge for Biden or the major candidates already competing against her for the nomination, including Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. ...
In their Minneapolis discussions intended to persuade additional uncommitted superdelegates to come commit to Clinton, her team is taking care not to mention Biden, but the message is clear: much of the party establishment is supporting Clinton and the math is in her favor.
Whatever one's thoughts on the idea superdelegates might be, they have been a part of the Democratic nomination process for decades. They helped Obama win the nomination in 2008 and will do the same for Clinton in 2016. They know a winner when they see one, and it's the lifelong Democrat with the best résumé for the job.

Without a single vote being cast, Hillary is already well on her way to winning the nomination.

And somewhere, Martin O'Malley is whining.

    4. It's important that Dems and anyone supports a candidate on VALUES not on party line. And he's running as a dem now and has generally sided with the Dems for decades. Who gives a shit about the labels.

      Stop supporting SHillary and stop supporting the corrupt system and establishment.

    5. Just telling you why the superdelegates support her and why she will win the nomination. Democrats all over love her, and not because JUST she's a Democrat.

      Her name is Hillary.

      Delete
    6. Democrats don't love her, they just know her and think there's no other option. Seriously, if dems love her, why does the first Caucus state and the first primary state both favor Bernie over SHillary right now?

      SHillary Clinton only has name recognition, but when it comes to what people think about her? The first three words are "liar, dishonest and untrustworthy." You think that's "a lot of people like her" kinda thing? No. They just don't know the other candidates, know SHillary is at least not as insane as the GOP candidates and thus would choose her over the GOP, but most don't think she is worth it nor do they think she aligns with them

      Oh, and SHillary's polls continue to drop. Over and over they are dropping. If the Super Delegates keep to her, it shows the corruption of the DNC and it shows that the system is too broke to have anyone really win. Which would mean it's time for a violent revolution to fix it. I'd rather it NOT come to violence.

    8. Exactly, Victoria. This isn't about her "deserving" of the Presidency, it's about what's best for the people. Someone who is blatantly in the pockets of the Wall Street banks and big corporate power houses like Comcast and Time Warner and whatnot shouldn't be in the presidency or any elected office so they can't use her/him to push shit that screws us. Or is this more of what the SHillary supporters want?

  2. This is truly reprehensible, and the DNC is acting like the old union bosses that gave the Democratic party in days of old. The DNC has decided it has no interest in the actual will of the people- before any debates have even been held (not to even mention the decision to severely limit the number of debates, it has decided that it knows best, and declares Hillary the winner, in effect. And the author of this piece shows his utter contempt by a totally unnecessary and nasty comment about one of the other candidates, Martin O'Malley. This scurrilous and arrogant behavior on the part of the "elites" of the DNC is exactly why so many of us are now supporting Bernie Sanders, and find the DNC to no longer be representative of all registered Democrats. You are not there to appoint a "Queen"- you, as the National Committee for the Democratic Party should be there to represent all of us, and allow the Democratic process, through the caucuses and the primaries, rather than try to manipulate them and confound the voters.

    1. Whatever one might think of it, it's the system that's been in place for choosing the Dem nominee for decades. But the thing is, if Sanders or O'Malley or whoever really take off and have a real shot at victory, the superdelegates can change their mind. The actual voting occurs at the convention a year from now. This just shows the incredible amount of support that Hillary already has.

      I made fun of O'Malley because he's a whiner who just the other day actually went after Hillary on the email crap. I have no use for him.

  4. This is the smart way to win- it's how Obama did it in 2008- As Scan said-it's the system and it's been this way for a long time- When Hillary does it it's "reprehensible' Clinton rules prevail- I don't know about you but I want my President to be smart- BTW- Nothing has ever been given to Hillary -she has earned and worked hard on all the issues that progressives care about- That's what matters- Politics is a game but leadership requires experience and hard work- Hillary has both. Bernie Sanders is great on income inequality but so is Hillary- Hillary's experience has an unrivaled depth and breathe- probably the most qualified candidate for President in history.

    1. SHillary Clinton is completely in line and on the sides of big banks, big corporations, and the corrupt establishment. You want to keep supporting someone like that? Seriously. She hasn't "earned" anything. She's flip flopped on values time and time again and really has no points other than wanting to be president and then after being president she'll tell us how she plans to vote for things. She's been in favor of the military industrial complex, of the bailouts, of the disastrous trade agreements, etc that continue to be bad for America.

      Stop being a fool and supporting her blindly. Do you support her JUST cause she's a woman and you badly want a female president? If so, you're doing our nation a vast disservice. In fact, long term, this will only make more people hate the Dems just as they hate the GOP and it'll only help the GOP long term. Just as the weak/spineless Obama helped GOP (though it's not all on him, I'm just saying he was a part of it, he tried to be the "great compromiser" and the GOP walked all over him and blamed him and the Dems for all the woes of our nation).

      Oh, and how is Hillary great on income inequality? She had no plans until Bernie started speaking. Then he stole some of his ideas and watered them down so the big banks and corporations could still get vast tax cuts and subsidies which continues to shift the wealth disparity in the favor of the rich.

      Face it, she's a terrible candidate and you support her blindly.

    2. I posted this comment below just now...I guess I'll have to copy and paste it here:

      Bernie Sanders is cool. But his supporters love to get in your face to tell you that you're wrong and that your candidate sucks and that only Saint Bernie can be supported because he is perfect.

      It's pretty annoying. And it doesn't help Bernie, either.

      PS: Nastily calling her "SHillary Clinton" is something that Republicans have done for a long time. Are you actually a Republican troll? Or just generally confrontational and unpleasant towards people you disagree with?

    3. When she is COMPLETELY shilling out to the banks, she is a shill and thus SHillary Clinton. The same as the GOP Shills and the other corporate Dem Shills. Shills are shills, it's not an insult to call a spade a spade. It's just a fact.

    2. No one says Bernie is perfect, but he's a far cry better than SHillary Clinton. The proof is in the history. Bernie has been consistent with his views. SHillary has sold out to the highest bidder like the majority of our politicians these days and has flip flopped on policies only as polls required her to as a true establishment politician does. She's not as bad as the GOP candidates, but she's basically a GOP light candidate. To pretend she'd solve income inequality, the tax code favoring the rich/big corporations (not even small businesses), the trade policies that outsource jobs, etc? Ya, you're deluding yourself. As much as people who thought Obama would be "hope and change" in 2008 cause they ignored how he was in the Senate or so. He was completely pro-establishment in his political career prior to his presidency and people were surprised to see him be nearly completely pro-establishment as a President (and yes, even his significant policy creation of the ACA is still in line with the establishment, or do you ignore the health insurance lobbyists who helped write it?)

    4. Thanks for ignoring facts, logical, and reality to blindly follow a candidate who is a terrible choice and only slightly better than some of the other candidates. But the lesser of two evils is still evil. Even if you don't want to support Bernie, there are other candidates who are still good too. Or do you think you HAVE to support SHillary Clinton cause you think Bernie couldn't beat a GOPer? Cause the polls show otherwise there.

      Seriously, name one issue that Hillary has given an exact policy on that doesn't still help out the big banks/corporations or ones that she hasn't changed her mind on in the last few years and likely to just change back? Are you falling for her pretty speeches and ignoring her history? Did you vote for Obama and ACTUALLY expect hope and change and fall for his pretty speeches?

    8. Hey I will NEVER vote for Sanders. He's a tool of the NRA. And people think it's "cool" to be for him, like their IQs go up or something.

      Delete
    9. I will vote for Sanders if he gets the nomination, although he has no actual chance at winning a general election. But I dont like him. Here is why

      FIrstly, he isnt a democrat. I find it offensive that , for the last twenty five years, he has said absolutely awful things about the Democratic party, but now he wants to be the leader? He even puts down my President. This strikes me as incredible arrogance, and not at all a leadership quality. He needs to join the party.

      Secondly, the man never held a job until he was forty. THat is amazing. Not only that, but he has been making 250k plus, for the last twenty five years, but only has a household net worth of 330k. He has 65k in credit card debt. Everything is being held in his wife's name, What is he hiding? He certainly cant handle money.

      THirdly, he has a rather sordid past. No wonder he gets mad and throws his hands up and storms out when someone doesnt want to talk about his economic plan. He advocated children having sex with other children. He said that if you dont let your daughter have sex before she is 16, you are a bad parent. He blamed the women who get cervical cancer, for their own disease, because according to him, cervical cancer only happens to frigid women ( my sis died of cervical cancer at 36, and I am VERY offended by his ideas on women and sexuality. He voted against amber alerts. He thinks that women fantasize about being raped, and that all men fantasize about abusing women...which sort of fits...a lot of bern bots are angry white men who have no respect for women, which is why they denigrate Hillary, who is most likely to be our candidate.

      Fourthly, he has no endorsements from any other politicians. None. The other members of congress dont like him because of his temper. He has a very bad temper, and yells and screams a lot. Giving your endorsement of a politician is your indication that you are willing to work with the person you are endorsing. He has no endorsements. No one will work with him

      Fifthly, he has gotten ONE piece of legislation of his own passed...in 25 years . ONE. He doesnt play well with others, and he cant get anything done. Never has. Never will. He just makes a lot of noise.

      And sixthly, Bernie supporters are nasty people who , instead of keeping their eye on the goal, which is to defeat republicans, put down Hillary, who has done a lot of good things for this country, and talk about her in a way that they NEVER would if she were a man. HIllary supporters, at least the male ones, are anti woman. THey long for the days of unions, when the low education white man was king. That is also what Bernie wants. Women are only a secondary thought to these people.

    1. Yes, you do - in your state primary. Nothing is ordained. Hillary had to earn 18 million votes last time around and she will earn them this time as well. I admire Bernie - I also admire Hillary. Actually, I'd vote for any of the Dems over the Republican field. They're just plain dangerous. Think Supreme Court and Citizens United.

      Delete
  10. Well folks, that's how the system works and them's the rules. Hillary learned from Obama's 2008 primary strategy and she's doing the same thing now that he did then. If Hillary becomes the nominee, Bernie will endorse her and vote for her in the general election. And so should his followers. Unless they want another GWBush. When Hillary and Bernie were both in the Senate they voted alike 95% of the time. I know if Bernie won the nomination I certainly would vote for him in the general because the alternative isn't good - especially for Supreme Court appointments. So Scan, keep up the good work - I look forward to your posts. Go Hillary!

Are you so happy that the democrats like Obama support the TPP which will be disastrous for our nation and hand over more power to the corporations? DO you love that the Dems created NAFTA which exported millions of jobs?

      Not that GOP are better, but I'm just pointing out your blind love of Democrats and who has been a "Democrat" longer (Btw, Hillary was a Republican in the past, she was converted by Bill Clinton). It's just hilarious how blind you are to the labels and ignore the policies which matter more.

      And even funnier how you fall for propaganda and bullshit about Bernie's stance on guns ignoring that he's supported stricter gun control. Ending the loop holes at private sales and the having better background checks and whatnot. But I guess that doesn't matter to you eh? Can't have anything that shits on your narrative and your blind obedience to the party! Heil Hillary eh?!

  21. Want to know what this tells me, Hillary Clinton? It tells me you want to rig the process. It tells me you don't trust the people to vote. The message this sends is that you're a business as usual, glad handing politician who supports the status quo and won't do a blooming thing....because why should you? You're being crowned queen.

    Is that who you are? Is that really who you are? because that is the message you're sending.

    To claim that you have 60% of the superdelegates locked up before this process even begins tells me that this system is pathetic....and IT needs to be changed.

    If you do not win the primary popular vote, Mrs. Clinton, and you win the democratic nod -- understand this....most of Bernie's supporters will hold their nose and vote for you. Because the alternative if pathetic -- but we won't work for you. We won't campaign for you. We won't volunteer for you. We won't help you.

    And the GOP will absolutely use this to their advantage on the campaign trail .... Hillary Clinton couldn't even win her own party's nomination without resorting to trickery....

    Do you want that?

    And aren't you a better candidate than that? Don't you have more to offer us than that? I think you do!

    But perception is everything, Mrs. Clinton....and the perception with this little trick is that you're being underhanded in your pursuit. You're starting your campaign out poorly here. Your supporters may think this is wonderful....but even if I supported you, I'd be pissed.

    What this BRAG of yours tells me is that the primary is just a sham and that the people have nothing to say about who gets to sit in the big chair ... it's all an illusion that the DNC wants us to believe. And that's not really something that's good for America, now is it?

We have created a Bernie 4 President SUPERDELEGATE Task Force where we are reaching out to ALL 750+ superdelegates and calling them out on unethical behavior, and for essentially allowing Wall Street and Hillary Clinton to BUY this election and superdelegate votes. Please join us in our private Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/Bernie4PresidentTaskForce/ to join in and help us scream at the top of our lungs via phone, fax, email, Facebook, Twitter, and mailed postcards to every d=superdelegate by countless thousands of volunteers that if they vote for Hillary and thus Wall Street, we are voting to give THEM pink slips and vote them out of office. Period. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. NO MORE WALL STREET CORRUPTION. MONEY OUT OF POLITICS. Hillary, it's the ISSUES babe, the ISSUES, not your dirty Wall Street money and friends.

    1. Hillary is running away with the Democratic Party superdelegates because she is a lifelong Democrat who can beat the Republican nominee next year. It's really not that complicated. Also...sigh...again, the superdelegates don't vote until the convention and can change their minds at any point. All this really means right now is that all these superdelegates (including people like John Lewis, Sherrod Brown and Mark Dayton) have given their endorsement, and that is very powerful. It's not about money, it's about party politics. Bernie has never been a member of the party...and the superdelegates don't believe that he can win the presidency.

Bernies favorability ratings are higher than hillary's. americans do not like her. 7% more people find her unfavorable than favorable and it's getting worse by the day. we don't care what wall street party elites think or want. superdelegates are corrupt, undemocratic and unethical, and didn't even exist until 1982. We will not stand for Hillary buying her votes into the White House which is exactlty what she, Bill, and the notorious Clinton Foundation seem to be doing based on available evidence and reports.

  23. This whole idea of forcing superdelegates to make promises before the public has had a chance to vote in any of the primaries smacks of a rigged election, which is unacceptable. When I saw what was happening I joined the Bernie 4 President Democratic Superdelegates Task Force, because Bernie seems to be running a more honest campaign and that's what I want to see in a candidate for the highest office in our country. I don't see why anybody would vote for a candidate who blatantly tries to rig the election.

She has nothing to offer but same old status quo corruption with corporations, wall street and the 1%. She's CONSERVATIVE and a DINO (former Republican). We wil NOT allow her to become President, and we will sit out and NOT VOTE if she wins the nomination which will throw the election to the GOP. Many of us on the progressive side simply will not vote for her under ANY ANY circumstances whatsoever.

    1. OK, none of this makes sense. But seriously...who gives a shit about what the Tea Party wants to do? They still think Obama is a Muslim from Kenya.

      You're a GOP troll, aren't you? That's the only way this makes any sense at all.

    2. She truly is a liability to the American people and the real issues that need to be addressed in favor of our well being. She doesn't know what is best for us, like Bernie is hammering at so well. Down with Hillary and her fake face.

    3. I love it. Every time an establishment Democrat is cornered they start calling us GOP trolls. Instead of getting defensive, why don;t you just take the blinders off and look at the facts for a change?

  26. Hell-ary must not be allowed to continue to flip flop on issues, while buying and convincing the Democrats to endorse her. She is a liability to our progressive movement and the ability of our middle class to become stronger once again and stand for the real issues, NOT for Wall Street, Super Pacs, and corrupt, phony politicians who don't represent the best interests of our lives, like Hillary Clinton.

    1. Bernie is a great guy with an excellent message but he's not Obi-Wan Kenobi.

  28. Super Delagates should not be above the democratic process and should vote with the majority of their state or local people that they are supposed to represent.

    1. So all California, New York, Florida, and Texas superdelegates should be required to vote for Hillary? Okay!

  29. If Hillary steals the nomination the Democratic Party is going to have a revolt on its hands that will lose the election. HiIlary supporters will vote blue no matter what but Sanders supporters won't. The American people have had more than enough of political corruption on both sides and refuse to support it even if it has a D behind its name. Bernie and his supporters are trying to save the Democratic Party from its own corrupt and sold-out self. If Bernie loses then everyone loses. If Bernie wins we all win.

    1. Hillary is beating Bernie in every state except Vermont right now. She's going to earn the nomination by getting the most votes.

    2. Votes only because of rampant voter suppression, closed primaries and voter ignorance. Sanders will still win despite this corrupt system.

  30. I just found this site and have been reading up.
    As a non-American who has followed Secretary Clinton's political career it is refreshing to find a blog which is interested in facts and not baseless right-wing propaganda.
    Sadly I have noted the tendency of Bernie supporters to troll here but I suppose by now desperation is setting in that their precious snowflake is not getting anywhere near the Oval office.
    I hope to raise a glass to President Clinton come November 2016.

  33. The old, time worn Clinton claim that there is a "right wing conspiracy" against her is not true any longer, if it ever was. There are plenty of people from the Democratic and Independent groups that don't like her, as well.
