Meet the Superdelegates

Here is a useful breakdown of each of the democratic Superdelegates, who they are and who they are for.

Right now, 190.5 superdelegate votes go to Hillary Clinton and 148.5 go to Barack Obama. Still not committed, though, are 250, so we will see the true kingmakers who will be meeting in those smoke-filled rooms. Or probably nowadays and with this crowd smoke-free rooms.

    Very useful. Thanks!

    The only thing I was interested in was how the superdelegates from my state (Oregon) were positioned. I found 2 supporting Clinton (including our governor, which seems appropriate somehow), 1 supporting Obama, and 9 whose positions were unknown.

    This seems good to me, since Oregon hasn’t yet had its primary. Perhaps the superdelegates are waiting to see what the will of the people is? Or, more cynically, perhaps they are hoping a clear winner will emerge, so that (1) they can support a winner and (2) they can earn some political capital by having supported the winner.
