About the wobble list

This is the "wobble list" of superdelegates whose reported endorsement for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama is in doubt for one reason or another. There are also undeclared (not yet endorsing) superdelegate "wobblers" who have not been reported as endorsing a candidate but there is reason to believe they will go with one candidate over the other. (See below for criteria).

Criteria for being on the wobble list

Endorsing Superdelegates are "Wobbling Endorsers" if: Undeclared Superdelegates are "Wobbling Undeclareds" for Clinton or Obama if:

They met the standard of a "solid endorsement" (see below), BUT THEY ALSO:

  1. Have made comments indicating they MAY be reconsidering their endorsement (for any reason, including being swayed by primary vote results); OR
  2. Are an elected party or public official representing a district or state whose voters selected a different candidate (NOT including generic DNC members from that state); OR
  3. Are reported as making an endorsement by a source that now seems unreliable; OR
  4. Are reported as more recently having a different position but that report does not meet the criteria of a "solid endorsement" (thus meriting the superdelegate's move to a different column and off the wobbler list).

They have NOT made a "solid endorsement" (see below), BUT THEY ALSO:

  1. Have received campaign contributions from ONLY one candidate; OR
  2. Are included in the INTERNAL Clinton or Obama lists of endorsees (as reflected in the New York Times superdelegate list); OR
  3. Are an elected party or public official representing a district or state where the primary vote has taken place; (NOT including generic DNC members from that state); OR
  4. Are reported as endorsing or supporting Clinton or Obama but that report doesn't meet the "solid endorsement" criteria (see below); OR
  5. Have appeared at a fundraiser or rally for Clinton or Obama; OR
  6. Have previously made a "solid endorsement" but have since backed off or stated that it did not necessarily guarantee vote as a superdelegate.

Criteria for a solid endorsement:

  1. A press release from the superdelegate announcing the endorsement; OR
  2. A press release or blog post on Clinton or Obama's official campaign website announcing the endorsement; OR
  3. A newspaper article quoting the superdelegate endorsing the candidate or paraphrasing a solid statement of endorsement (NOT a list); OR
  4. An official position (such as a state "chair" - a fundraising position) with the campaign.
