Clinton Can't Clinch Dem Nomination Without Unelected Superdelegates

- April 14, 2016

Fallon Concedes Clinton Can't Secure Nomination Pre-Convention Without Superdelegates

Brian Fallon Concedes That Clinton Will Need Superdelegates To Win Nomination. CHRIS CUOMO: "How certain are you that you can close this out and go into a convention with the presumption, meaning that you have reached the number of pledged delegates, not super delegates." BRIAN FALLON: "There is a zero percent chance that Hillary Clinton will not clinch this nomination prior to the convention. It absolutely will happen. Certainly after California, but possibly even before California, we will reach the number of 2,383 delegates you need to clinch the nomination." CUOMO: "How can you be so sure? It would mean winning a percentage of delegates she has not won often. From now all the way throughout." FALLON: "We think that we're actually on trajectory if we have a good outcome here on Tuesday in New York and then with the five states that are voting on April 26th we think we could be approaching 90 percent of being the way there in terms of 2383, the number of delegates that you need And then at that point there's a few contests in May, and when you add up the pledged delegates that she's amassed right now, she's got a lead of about over 200 pledged delegates over Senator Sanders. We expect to gain even more delegates even in those contests in May. Even if he wins some of them and when you combine that with some of the party leaders and elected officials that serve as super delegates where she also has a significant advantage we think we'll reach that number probably, possibly by the end of May if not after California."
