How Bernie can win: prevent HRC from winning a majority of pledged delegates in the primaries....

then he (and us) has 7 weeks before the convention to convince the super delegates that HRC can't win the GE. I think this may be Bernie's best chance.

1. No convincing should/would be needed

If Bernie wins more pledged delegates and Clinton tries to steal the nomination with superdelegates there would be a mutiny, she would get crushed in the GE.

3. He doesn't need to win more pledged delegates, just enough to keep HRC from reaching the 2381

delegates needed for the nomination. It takes about 59% of the pledged delegates to get the nomination without super delegates. If Bernie can win 41% of the pledged delegates then the nomination is decided by the super delegates.

2. Yep

 

If the damn people don't wake up and throw off their shackles in time, then we'll have to fight all the way to the doors of the convention hall!
