10. You are wrong

The purpose of the primary process is to become the nominee which means getting a majority of the delegates. Sanders has to win by large percentages if he wants to be competitive (and this is ignoring the lead that Clinton has in Super delegates). Sanders is only polling well in states with 90+% white voting populations and these states account for 2% of the available delegates.

If Sanders wants to be the nominee, he needs to have more delegates than Clinton.
