Another mark against the democratic party's superdelegate system are the lobbyists. Nine percent of super delegates are known registered lobbyists. I cannot restate this fact hard enough. There are people who push private agendas for profit who are influencing the democratic presidential platform.
"According to ABC News’ analysis, of the 463 superdelegates who are not current or former elected officials, 67 are current or former registered lobbyists. There are 717 superdelegates in total who will vote among the July 25 nominating convention’s 4,763 delegates."
