Super delegates make up about 15 percent of the Democrat delegates who choose the party’s nominee. In 2016 they overwhelming pledged their support early for the eventual nominee Hillary Clinton. That support was reflected in media reports on the contest between Bernie Sanders and Clinton, padding her lead and adding a sense of inevitability to her candidacy.
