(AmericanProsperity.com) – Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) wants the rules put in place after the 2016 election changed to help ensure he’s crowned the Democratic nominee at this summer’s Democratic National Convention (DNC).
NEWS — nearly 100 superdelegates tell @reidepstein and @llerer that they would cast ballots for another candidate if @BernieSanders doesn’t come to the DNC with more than 50% of the delegates, raising prospect of a messy convention. https://t.co/Y1KdFXWD4E

Sanders says whoever has the most votes should secure the nomination. However, the current rules require him to secure at least 1,991 delegates on the first ballot of the convention. If he doesn’t, then the superdelegates who are uneasy with his campaign will decide who the nominee will be on a second ballot.
House and Senate Democrats are saying the rules are the rules and should not be changed again to meet Sanders’s demands a second time.
Another fight with Sanders and the Democratic establishment has also been brewing. It’s entirely possible that superdelegates will once again ensure a moderate-left candidate is the nominee over Sanders if they can help it.
