winter, spring, and early summer, typically ending around June. Individual states get to decide how to assign their allotted number of pledged delegates through primaries and caucuses: usually they divide the delegates on a Adidas Originals Gazelle Og Leather Sale
Here's the math for this: in order to win the nomination in 2008, a candidate needed the votes of 2025 delegates. Heading into the convention, neither had candidate had performed well enough in the primaries to win the nomination on the strength of delegates alone. Which means that the remaining 796 superdelegates theoretically could have decided the election, since they can vote for whoever they want to for president. However, early in the summer of 2008, Hilary Clinton conceded defeat to avoid a drawn out fight and the prospect of a potentially "stolen" nomination that would have left a terrible taste in Democrats mouth after the 2000 Gore Bush debacle in Florida. This freed up all of her delegates and superdelegates to support Obama on his eventual path to the nomination and the presidency. Could he run for President in 201.
roughly equal basis to the Adidas Gazelle Claret And Blue popular vote in their individual primary or caucus. So if hypothetical State X is allowed to award 100 delegates by the party, and a candidate wins 55% of the vote in that state's primary, she will receive 55 of the state's 100 delegates to the national convention. The above example is a rough approximation of what actually happens in each state: often states will also award some delegates based on how well candidates do in each congressional district or will give a bonus to the candidate who wins the state as a whole. But a general rule of thumb is that the delegates will be assigned in a fashion roughly equal to the results of a state's primary or caucus.
In recent history the nomination has almost always been wrapped up far before the convention. Usually one candidate wins a large enough number of the early primaries and caucuses to guarantee themselves the votes of a majority of the pledged delegates at the convention by mid spring. So by the time the convention rolls around in late summer, everyone else has withdrawn from the race and all of the delegates are free to vote unanimously for one candidate, unifying the party for the upcoming general election. Superdelegates usually don't play any role in choosing the nominee because the race is already decided by the time they get to vote. In 2008, however, the unprecedented competition between Clinton and Obama resulted in them winning almost equal amounts of pledged delegates through the results of primaries and caucuses. By the end of the campaign, it was clear that it would be impossible for either candidate to win the nomination through the support of pledged delegates alone: they had to win the support of the superdelegates in order to win the nomination.
