It’s being reported that Hillary may wind up with the same number of delegates from New Hampshire as Bernie even though he won a crushing victory at the poles. Here’s how.
There were 24 delegates up for grabs in the New Hampshire primary to be awarded proportionally based on the vote tally. Bernie won 15. Hillary got 9. However, there are also 6 superdelegates. These party elders have not been swayed like the many youngsters who voted for Bernie, and they intend to cast their convention votes for Hillary who they see as the electable candidate.
9 + 6 = 15. It’s a tie.
Sanders is wrong about most things, but he’s right when he says the deck is stacked against him.
