7. The point of voting is to define the majority

If, for example, this plank is only supported by delegates representing Sanders and Warren, then they will lose the vote. Biden has a clear majority of the delegates to the Convention, who were all selected in accordance with Party rules. If a majority of the DNC delegates support a Medicare for All plank, that would not be a minority imposing its will on the majority. That would be a democratic (with a small D) process. Meanwhile they virtually all are backing Biden regardless.
