Sanders on track to win

Bernie won over 56% in WI last night, which is about what he’ll need to win a majority of pledged delegates.

There are 4765 delegates to the national convention, 4051 of which are pledged. Of the 4051 pledged delegates, Clinton has 1302 and Sanders has 1083, leaving 1666 yet to be awarded. If Sanders wins 56.6% of those, he will add 943 for a total of 2026 and a majority of pledged delegates. The superdelegates are unpledged and can change their minds under public pressure.
