Chances Of Brokered Democratic Convention Increase

On the eve of the New Hampshire primary, more political observers are talking about the possibility of a brokered convention.

Combine the botched Iowa primary with the huge ad buy by former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and it gets tougher for one of the Democratic candidates to get enough delegates to lock up the nomination.

According to "The Hill," a brokered convention would increase the power of the party officials known as super delegates. They say that would be good news for President Trump, since those who lose such a contest might be even more angered over the process.

The latest forecast model from FiveThirtyEight put the chances of no candidate winning a majority of delegates at 24 percent.

Some Democrats hope that New Hampshire will give more clarity to the race, but there is no guarantee.

"The Hill" reports there are a huge number of undecided voters whose biggest concern is electability, and they could flock to the candidate who starts winning states once more voters have had a say.
