A Poll of Hillary’s Superdelegates Means Less Than Some May Think

First Read:

But the point we’re trying to make is that perhaps the Dem Party is more unified than PUMA-on-the-street interviews might suggest. Indeed, today’s New York Times/CBS poll of Dem convention delegates probably has it right: 60% of Hillary’s delegates enthusiastically support Obama, 31% support him with reservations or because he’s the nominee, and 5% don’t support him at all.

Almost every superdelegate is someone who works in politics professionally, or who is extremely involved in politics, well beyond a casual interest or hobby. What this poll really tells us is that five percent of Hillary superdelegates have no interest in working in an Obama administration and are willing to say what they really think.
