Whoever gets a majority of the delegates' votes at the convention wins the nomination: each delegate's (pledged or super) vote counts equally. The interesting thing about this process is that, theoretically, superdelegates could all decide to vote for one candidate in a close election, and "swing" the nomination away from someone who won more pledged delegates through caucuses and primaries. In practice, this has never actually happened, though it was at least a theoretical possibility during the 2008 race for the Democratic nomination between Barack Obama and Hilary ClintonPledged delegates are chosen by the state level party organizations in each state.
