Clinton Will Need a Vast Majority of Superdelegates To Win

From Slate’s Trailhead blog:


“The Superdelegate Wall”

The math facing Clinton is even more daunting than you think.


Should Clinton win every single contest by 10 points (which is incredibly improbable), she will still need 70% of the Superdelegates to win the nomination.  It’s even worse if you assume Obama will eke out a win in North Carolina, where he’s currently up by more than 20 points.
