Above is table listing the latest 2016 South Carolina Democratic primary polls and aggregate PPD polling average for the first in the South primary. There are 51 delegates up for grabs in the South Carolina Democratic primary on Saturday February 27, 2016, which are to be allocated proportionately. There are another 6 “superdelegates,” or Party Leaders and Elected Officials (PLEO), who will go to the Democratic National Convention officially “Unpledged,” including 5 Democratic National Committee members and 1 member of Congress (0 senator and 1 representative).

51 of 57 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are pledged to presidential contenders based on the results of actual voting. However, a mandatory 15% threshold is required in order for a presidential contender to be allocated National Convention delegates at either the congressional district or statewide level. 33 district delegates are to be allocated proportionally to presidential contenders based on the primary results in each of the State’s 7 congressional districts.

Further, 18 delegates are to be allocated to presidential contenders based on the primary vote statewide.
