I keep hearing various alternative news sources saying that the DNC will already have selected their democratic candidate to run in the presidential election against a republican before California has it's primary election. That can only mean that California, then, has no voice in the selection of that candidate. Is this true and, if so, how can they get away with that?
Comes down to when the California Democratic Primary is scheduled, Tuesday June 7 2016, and the number of delegates proffered by the primaries scheduled earlier. Before California's primary, just over 84% of the available delegates would have been won. From that, it is statistically possible that one candidate could have received a majority of all available delegates.
