Some of them base distribution on results in Congressional districts, so the overall vote total can be very close but you can win all or nearly all of the delegates if you eek out wins in each district.

Even though she was the favorite then and now, any non-incumbent candidate at even odds vs the field at that early point is a pretty bad bet.

I found the following headline interesting:

"Paul Ryan: "More likely" now that Republicans will have open convention"
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/paul-rya...en-convention/

Saw a parallel article on Fox news site:
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016...re-likely.html

This would be very interesting and historic if it happened. It might even be enough to get me to watch the convention coverage.

Pretty good article covering several logical reasons why the party officials should support Sanders over Hillary and why the minority voters should not be so zealous about supporting her
