Bernie Sanders is quickly going to realize the economy is not the only thing he thinks is rigged.
A chart published at CNN.com shows despite Sander’s massive 22 percentage point blowout victory over Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state is still walking away with more delegates.
A total of 32 delegates are available from the state of New Hampshire: 24 “Pledged” — based on election results — and 8 “Super” delegates, that is, party elites.
Not even a convincing 146,680 to 93,131 win over Clinton would allow Sanders to walk away with what really matters: nominating convention delegates. He’s getting 13 while Clinton scores 15.
Activists are launching a campaign to get six superdelegates to switch their support from Clinton to Sanders to reflect the desires of the electorate.
They’re targeting these Clinton backers, according to a MoveOn.org petition:
Joanne Dowdell: DNC Board of Directors
Maggie Hassan: Governor
Ann Kuster: Representative of the 2nd congressional district
Billy Shaheen: DNC Committeeman
Jeanne Shaheen: Senator
Kathy Sullivan: DNC Committeewoman
“It is these 6 peoples endorsements, who, despite Bernie Sanders winning New Hampshire by a margin of over 20 percentage points, have resulted in Hillary Clinton leading among delegates, that is not democracy, and we need to fix this,” according to the petition.
