So that's the magic number for Democrats.

It DOES NOT include the Florida or Michigan delegates, which the NAACP is urging the party to seat.

If Florida and Michigan were to be seated, 2025 would change... probably to about 2055.

And note: changes in the number of superdelegates may impact the number of delegates needed to nominate. (Note the passing of Rep. Tom Lantos of CA yesterday).. But as of right now, a 2025 is a majority of the new total of 4048 total delegates.

So 2025 it remains.
