Political Payoffs

According to an article in Party Politics, President Obama gave $6,409, on average, to 100 Democratic superdelegates, while Hillary Clinton only gave $5,266 to 47 SDs. There are 840 SDs and they comprise 20% of the Democratic delegate total. In the end Obama got 66% of the SDs. Looks to me like Hillary did not pay off enough SDs. I am sure ’16 Democratic presidential hopefuls know this and are fundraising accordingly.
