Unless I got my math wrong that's how many delegates Clinton needs to lock the nomination.

Sanders needs 1026 to do the same.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/democratic_delegate_count.html

There are 1241 delegates (including unpledged super delegates) remaining.

In 2008 super delegates defected from Clinton to Obama. That is what shifted the balance enough to give the nomination to Obama.

Does Sanders campaign have a plan to woo those delegates away from Clinton?

What is Bernie Sanders number one issue.

Not a full member so I can't post a poll apparently. And I'd rather hear peoples own opinions rather than funneling them into a few choices.

I'll start.

I see Bernie standing for economic justice first and foremost. Breaking up the banks, reining in Wall Street, the $15 minimum wage, single pater, and free college are all rooted in economic justice.

The first two are obvious imho, the third is not only about justice but also about economic success as a stronger working class makes for a stronger economy for everyone.

Single payer and free college are also obviously about economic justice. We don't want people dying because they can't afford a platinum health care plan and we don't want people to fore go an education because their parents don't belong to a country club.

So what's your position? What would you say is Sanders number one issue?
