I disagree - I think if Bernie wins the popular vote from the primaries / caucuses, the super delegates will fall in line. Otherwise they risk splitting the voter base with either losses to an independent or a low turn-out from the Sanders followers.
If the turn out is low, the GOP could well win - even with a nutcase like Cruz or Trump running, which given the situation with potential Supreme Court appointees would be a nightmare for the Democrats.
Ultimately there is only a very small chance that Sanders will even get the nomination even if he keeps winning primary elections. The Democratic Party (ironic name as you will see) allows unelected so called 'super-delegates' to cast votes regardless of how other members of the party have voted. The eventual party leader and nominee for president has to woo the super-delegates into supporting them and they can be anyone from party officials to members of the House - essentially not your average Joe Public (or Joe the Plumber.) The Democrats employ this system in order for the party higher-ups to keep some semblance of control and to avoid someone like, say Donald Trump, hijacking the party ticket (the Republicans don't use the same system to elect their candidate.)
Sanders has basically campaigned on the fact that he has no super-delegate support and is an outsider who often contradicts the party line (similar to Corbyn in that regard.) Despite noises from the party being made that they would eventually rally to his side should he emerge as the party's favorite candidate, it is very different to what happened to Obama in '08. Obama was always friendly to the Democratic higher-ups and Bernie certainly isn't. Hilary is starting with a 362-8 advantage in Delegates who have already announced their preference for her.
Gone off the booze for Lent, so thought coupled with a new round of supplements and my old tried and trusted weight loss diet to see if i can drop some lbs. Looking for 10lbs in 40 days, which im hoping will be doable.
On an unrelated note, SMASHED biceps today!!
