    And there are other polls, multiple polls, that align with my statement. The fact of the matter is, you can watch the debates and see Biden doesn't have it. Time for Dem Insiders to recognize its more important to pick the person the majority of the party likes over who they feel deserves the nomination. They made that mistake in 2016 and we all know how that turned out.

    The last 6 polls aggregated per RCP show Biden +1, +8, +2, +15, +9, +10 all in the last week.

    If anything, recent polling shows Biden regaining some of his footing. Now why that is happening is up to debate.

    As I recall, without looking it up, the Bernie/Hillary race would have been much closer had it not been for super delegates, almost all of whom voted for Hillary.

    Who picks the super delegates? The DNC or someone else?

    Yeah, I seem to remember that. But who decides who gets to be a super delegate?

    And yet CNN scores an A- on 538. I tend to give more credence to 538 than berniebro conspiracy theories.

    Link? Most polls aren't going to have a strong enough sample of subgroups.

    I believe it has to do with your political career or how much of a big donor to the DNC you are.

    Duuude seriously? The last Dem primary was a coronation, not an election. With DWS as master of ceremonies. I have no idea how anybody with half a brain couldn't see that.

    You're an idiot - you trusting Nate Silver can't make a political poll represent voters that didn't participate in the poll.

    Nate silver doesn't make any poll. But he rates polling and cnn/ssrs has been extremely accurate. And if you look other places in there it only shows the statistically non-significant group as being between 50 and 65. The idea that they would do a national poll of only elderly people doesn't even make sense. This is also the case with the under $50,000 income

    Yeah, I for one was shocked when DWS came to my house, tied my wife and me up, and voted for Killary in our place.

    She won by 3.5M votes and 12%. That's what is known as a landslide. Bern and his whiny Bros had no chance, and he has no chance this time. Thanks for the laugh - do you teach children?

    Superman picks the Superdelegates.

    Arenít the super delegates people that are elected public officials in each state that are Democrats?...like Mayors and state senators and even congresspeople?

    In theory, superdelegates are actually a good idea. They help keep the party steady over time and help prevent candidates from outside the parties core values from orchestrating a populist take over of the party...GOP, and all of us, could have really benefited from a couple thousand superdelegates in 2016.

    Not necessarily elected officials. Just party movers and shakers.

    The democrats invented super delegates to keep George McGovern from happening again. Itís all about who the DNC thinks is most electable. And in 2016, the DNC clearly didnít believe that was Bernie.
