Dozens of Jewish Super-Delegates May Hold Key to Democratic Race

According to a new survey conducted by the Forward, a disproportionately large share of the Democratic party’s super-delegates are Jewish.
Many of them have declared their support for Hillary Clinton, accounting for more than 15% of her current backers.
In the current presidential primary, the support of Jewish party insiders is particularly critical for Clinton, who won contests in New York, New Jersey and California and has pledged support from a preponderance of Jewish super-delegates in the Golden State and the Northeast — including nearly a dozen in her home state of New York.
