National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted March 30-31, 2016
By Rasmussen Reports


1* Superdelegates are delegates chosen by the national Democratic Party during the presidential primary season who can support any candidate they wish at the party's convention regardless of who wins their state's popular vote. Do you favor or oppose the use of superdelegates in the presidential primary process?


2* Once they get to their party’s national political convention, should state delegates be required to support the candidate they were elected to support, or should they be free to support whichever candidate they choose?
