30. Some states have primaries...Some states have caucuses...

There have been instance where candidates have won more votes in caucuses and earned less delegates than the loser because of the vagaries of the process...

I don't have a problem with superdelegates putting their thumb on the scale in those instances where the results are close and hotly disputed.

I can't think of one instance where the superdelegates went with the candidate with less votes.
