New estimates for Nevada delegates to national: 19-16 Bernie, plus 8 more 'superdelegates'.

There are 35 delegates that will be elected at the state convention, 8 more unelected super-delegates.

23 of the delegates are chosen based on how each candidate does in the 4 congressional districts, based on the number of delegates voting for each candidate *at the state convention*. Given the dominance of Clark County, the shift in delegates there shifts the math in 2 of the 4 CD's. Based on how Nevada calculates delegate allotments, the new numbers should be:

CD1-3:2, Bernie:Hillary
CD2-3:3,
CD3-3:3,
CD4-3:3.

12 more delegates are chosen based on the vote of all the delegates *at the state convention* - 5 *pledged* "party leaders and elected officials" (these are not the super-delegates), and 7 more *at large* delegates. Again, the new Clark County numbers flips both of these calculations. These new numbers should be:

PLEO-3:2, Bernie:Hillary
AtLarge-4:3.

1. Caucuses are a travesty to democracy.

What's the point?

3. Yes. As far as elected delegates are concerned, Bernie will now "win" Nevada.

4. I find it fascinating that it is okay for superdelegates to "go against the will of the

 

people", because those rules have been in place for a few years. But Bernie winning just because some Hillary supporters did not show up to do the civic duty they signed on for (or changed their minds and did not want the hassle? or were accidentally given the wrong notice that they did not have to show up, and Hillary's team dropped the ball?) - that is now labeled elsewhere as "going against the will of the people", even though those rules have likely been in place longer.

Looks to me pretty much everything in nevada, if not the country, has been manipulated by the DNC, for Hillary, and those plans went, as Lewis Black says, askew.
