It has been said that there are "lies", "damn lies", & statistics - Anyone with experience in the field will attest to that sentiment. So we'll keep is simple and explain our approach in one sentence. The center represents percent of delegates and the two graphs depict official totals and the percentage of each. For this system to be fair and representative, those two bar graphs should match.
It's our opinion that if these two graphs aren't exactly the same that there is an inefficiency in the system. Our belief is that the SuperDelegates and the private interests that drive them are that inefficiency. On a temporary basis, we are supporting the idea that current superdelegates should align themselves with the public. On a long term basis, we believe it's absolutely clear that there is no place for an oligopoly in democracy.
