Will Joe Biden get all the Superdelegates even though he's not even close to leading in Iowa?

Bernie Bros screaming last night "rigged" and now look at the results. They will never grow up. Let them sit out in November.

See there. How much like the Democrats complaining about the Electoral College! Some thing, different side of the coin, right? I think the Democrats along with Shadow Inc. tried to cheat, and it didn't go smoothly. So now they are trying to be fake humble and trying to make their voter base to look the other way about Superdelegates.
Remember when the Democrats tried to call everything illegitimate? Now we see they are only sore losers.Source(s): bisexual Christian

Unpledged delegates, better known as superdelegates* will make up about 16% of Democratic Party delegates in 2020. These party insiders are part of each state's delegation, but are not committed to vote based on the outcome of the state's primary or caucus. This has caused considerable friction over the years. This came to a head in 2016 when many superdelegates announced early support for Hillary Clinton, creating the perception that the party was putting its thumb on the scale in her favor against Bernie Sanders.
As a result, the party has made a significant change for 2020. Superdelegates will no longer vote on the first ballot at the convention unless there is no doubt about the outcome. To win on the first ballot, the frontrunner must secure the majority of pledged delegates available during the nominating contests (primary and caucus) leading up to the Democratic Convention. We estimate^ 3,979 total pledged delegates, with a majority being 1,990.
All delegates become unpledged and superdelegates will also vote if the convention is contested (i.e., more than one ballot is needed to select a nominee). For those subsequent ballots, a majority of all 4,745 delegates (2,373) will be needed to secure the nomination. Given the large field, front-loaded calendar and the party's proportional allocation process, a contested convention can't be ruled out.

Iowa is one of 50 ststes. It's the first state to vote (caucus). Hard to say.

Hillary has not instructed the Super voters who to support - Yet. They MAY go for slow Joe - but if he comes in third or worse in New Hampshire - probably not.
