Bernie can win the nomination with 41% of the pledged delegates

There are 4051 pledged delegates and 713 super-delegates: total = 4764.

(4764/2) + 1 = 2383 to win the nomination.

Suppose Bernie wins 1670 (approximately 41%) of the 4051 pledged delegates.
That means that Clinton will win 2381 pledged delegates; not enough to clinch the nomination.

That leaves Bernie (and us) 7 weeks before the convention to convince the super delegates that HRC can't win the GE. I think this may be Bernie's best chance.

The important thing to remember is: Even if Bernie "loses" every primary, he can still win enough delegates to put up a fight at the convention. So don't give up.

He doesn't need to win more pledged delegates, just enough to keep HRC from reaching the 2381

delegates needed for the nomination. It takes about 59% of the pledged delegates to get the nomination without super delegates. If Bernie can win 41% of the pledged delegates then the nomination is decided by the super delegates.

How Bernie can win: prevent HRC from winning a majority of pledged delegates in the primaries....

then he (and us) has 7 weeks before the convention to convince the super delegates that HRC can't win the GE. I think this may be Bernie's best chance.
