CHICAGO – Democrats meeting in Chicago this weekend are ready to formalize a number of significant changes to its presidential nomination to repair the system, relationships with the rank-and-file members who are not bamboozled by the 2016 selection process, and ultimately, you hope the re-conquest of the White house.

This Democratic National Committee members to move with sophisticated advice on the changes, probably Saturday, to a system criticized just two years ago was, as unjust and be approved,

The most notable of these corrections is a plan to limit the influence of the party, the most high-profile members – often as superdelegates. These officials, governors, members of Congress, the mayor, and others – represent 15 percent of the total delegate count, the determination of the presidential candidates.

Under the new system, the superdelegates, or “automatic” delegates, as the party now wants to call them – are not guaranteed that the vote in the first ballot under the 2020 national convention. In other words, for the first vote in a contested race, the candidates are only able to count the delegates she won during the state primaries and Caucuses.

“Make sure that at the end of the day, when the process is completed, the Democratic candidate, that they feel their candidate got a fair Chance,” the DNC Chairman, Tom Perez, the members said on Thursday.

If it is the superdelegates who are not bound to a candidate, is free to step in and possibly tip the balance in the direction of someone who can win in a need for a second ballot, then a majority of the votes.

“You’ll see, little conversations here and there, but in the end we will have a whole—Democrats are going to move forward, the 2020 is a choice,” says Iris Martinez, a DNC member from Illinois.

The push for a new system comes out behind the men of Vermont-Senator Bernie Sanders, the feel of the 2016 process was stacked in favor of the possible candidacy of Hillary Clinton. Among the other complaints, they contradict the media covers during the primary season, Clinton shows up with her significant support among the superdelegates, the more votes, than they would have in the various state competitions

But as a veteran Democratic campaign manager Bob Shrum, noted Fox News, Clinton did eventually win a majority of delegates at stake, while the primary and caucus process, so that at the end of the superdelegates don’t matter.

“Superdelegates are either superfluous or they are dangerous,” says Shrum, who is now Director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics

Shrum says the superdelegates have never overturned, the will of the voters, and predicts, if it happens it would be so much hassle that it will doom the candidate in the General election.

“I think Tom Perez is determined not that you can see that in the year 2020, the types of fees that you saw in the year 2016,” he says.

The DNC is expected to make the pass rules force the caucus States, absentee ballots and a paper trail to show, sufficient for the conduct of a recount or otherwise verify the legitimacy of the competition.
