Why I think the super delegates won't flip to Bernie

The main reason is because he says his plans rely on millions of previously disinterested people getting involved in politics.

The turnout in the primaries proves that isn't happening. Bernie's rallies are not driving up voter turnout.


The supers know we have to increase our chances through electing Democrats to office. Hillsry is supporting that. Bernie hasn't shared one cent with other Dems.

He said he is running as a Dem for convenience. He relies on independents for wins.

So the super delegates are about electing Dems to office. Bernie is not. They will not flip to him.

3. If he secures more pledged delegates enough supers will vote for him to make him the nominee.

 

That is really all that needs to be said on the matter.

No, they will not switch if he trails in pledged delegates, they will not follow their state results and they will not follow the popular vote winner.

4. I'm not gonna touch most of that but

If you think any Dem candidate will win with just Dem votes then you just aren't serious.

11. So they'll deliberately spurn the will of Independents...

 

... who now constitute a plurality of the general electorate.

12. If he wins more pledged delegates he will start getting more supers

That happened with Obama.

The bigger issue is he is far behind in pledged delegates and popular votes. So that should be the main focus.
