Socialist senator could still secure Democratic nomination, but it’s all up to California and the superdelegates
Pundits have all but called the Democratic presidential race, with many arguing that Hillary Clinton now has an insurmountable delegate lead over rival Bernie Sanders.
However, the socialist senator and his supporters still remain confident of a win – and some experts say a victory is not yet impossible.

“There is now more than a theoretical chance that Clinton may not be the Democratic nominee for president,” Douglas E Schoen, a former pollster and political adviser to Bill Clinton, writes for the Wall Street Journal.

Here’s how Sanders could still clinch the nomination
Winning big in California
Democrats vote in California, Montana, New Mexico, New Jersey, and South and North Dakota next Tuesday. The Golden State is by far the biggest prize, with more delegates up for grabs than anywhere else the country and polling suggests the two politician are virtually neck-and-neck – the former secretary of state has seen her lead narrow in recent weeks.

The primary is open, meaning independents can vote. “In other states, such voters have favoured Sanders over Clinton,” says The Guardian. “There have also been 1.5 million new registered voters, many under 30, a demographic Sanders has won elsewhere by enormous margins.”
These are all encouraging signs for the senator, says Schoen. “A Sanders win in California would powerfully underscore Mrs Clinton’s weakness as a candidate in the general election.”
Persuading superdelegates to ditch Clinton
Superdelegates, typically current and former party leaders who have a free choice over which candidate they support, will prove crucial in determining the outcome of the Democratic race.

“They really can tip the scales if it’s close,” says MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff.

Clinton currently enjoys strong support from the superdelegates, but there is still a chance they could be persuaded to switch sides. Sanders has long argued they “don’t vote until they’re on the floor of the Democratic convention”.

Superdelegates “would seriously question” whether they should continue to stand behind Clinton’s candidacy if Sanders won in California, says Schoen in the WSJ. They could also be swung by recent national polling which puts the senator way ahead of Clinton when faced against presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

“Still, the challenge Sanders faces is steep,” says The Guardian. “[But] few attendees at Sanders rallies – least of all Sanders – seem the least bit fazed.”
