The establishment’s superdelegates are what Hillary Clinton is counting on to stay with her. That may not be her salvation. Many state primaries supported or are leaning toward Bernie Sanders.

Donald Trump has become the nominee that the GOP does not want. Many of the party’s establishment are refusing to support him. Some are talking about a third-party candidate to run against their own nominee. It is a party divided.
Five national polls show that Sanders will win against Trump, by a 17.5 percentage points average. How can the Democrats not support him? Because the establishment does not want him.
