What's this about delegates?

I keep seeing that Hillary got more delegates in NH, despite Bernie winning decisively. Is this true, and if so, how is it possible?

1. Superdelegates are being attributed to Hillary

even though, theoretically, they are not committed delegates. In terms of committed delegates, Bernie came out on top, 15-9.

To push the illusion of inevidibility. They're only fooling themselves. The superdelegates will fall in line with the pledged delegates at the convention. Otherwise, the civil war is on and the Democratic Party suffers a bloodbath in Nov...including the down ticket races where the superdelegates are running for reelection.

3. The super-delegates are being counted


Without the super-delegates the count is Sanders 13, Clinton 9
