I have been looking at the democrat endorsements of
Sanders and Clinton.
As it stood about a week ago,
Clinton has been endorsed by 148 of the members from the
House and Sanders has the endorsement of 2.
One of these, Grijalva,
has endorsed both candidates.
Of the democrat Senators,
37 of the 46 have endorsed Clinton while
1 Senator - Sanders himself - has endorsed Sanders.
As far as I know, these are all “superdelegates.”
Beyond this, if you look at the (so-called) progressive caucus,
Sanders has those same three endorsements listed above while
Clinton has been endorsed by 57 “progressives” who have NOT
endorsed the only member of their caucus from the Senate.
Clinton has about 80% of the endorsements and Sanders
has about 2 to 3%.
Clinton has loads of other “superdelegate” endorsements
from governors and other insiders. Sanders has 2 representatives
About 20% of the delegates are “superdelegates” in the
(un)democratic convention and, as it now stands,
Sanders will have to get about 60% of the regular delegates
in order to overcome the system which is rigged
to ensure the DLC’s choice.
Even if sanders gets over 60% of the delegates
(which is HIGHLY unlikely), there would still be the option
of arm-twisting and bribery used by the dominant members.
When Sanders said he would support whoever gets
the nomination, he set himself and his supporters up
