Jun 2016

Having a majority of the pledged delegates.
Having a large and growing lead in super delegate commitments such that, when combined with pledged delegates, she easily tops 2383.
There being no sign of any (let alone several hundred) super delegates rescinding their support for Clinton.
Having won a majority of the popular vote
Having won more primaries/caucuses.


All of those things add up to a valid presumption that Clinton will be confirmed as the nominee at the convention in July.
