Former Vice President Joe Biden became his potential candidate on April 7, 2020, after Senator Bernie Sanders, the only former prime ministerial candidate, suspended his campaign. Sanders backed Biden a few days later.
Number of pledged delegates per state
The number of pledged delegates from each state is proportional to the state’s share of the Electoral College, and to the state’s past Democratic votes for president. Thus the swing states and the Republican states are given less weight, but the Democratic states are given more weight in selecting the nominated candidates.
Six committed delegates have been appointed to each region, 44 to Puerto Rico and 12 to Democrats abroad. Each jurisdiction can also earn bonus delegates by holding primaries after March or in clusters of 3 or more neighboring states.
A quarter of the committed delegates between the states are allocated to candidates on the basis of the total number of votes cast across the state and on the basis of votes cast in each of the remaining congressional districts. Although some states use departments in addition to congressional districts. For example: The state of Texas uses the Senate district. In the past, the districts in which Democrats voted had more representatives. There were fewer seats allocated for swing districts and Republican districts. For example, House Speaker Pelosi strongly supported Democratic District 12 or 109,000 as individuals. And a swing district, CA-10, which became Democratic in 2018. Of which there are 4 delegates or 190 people.

The race so far
Although the field is now in the hands of a few competitors. At one point, however, it took about 30 Democrats.
Former congressman John Delaney began his campaign back in the summer of 2017 and was joined a couple of months later by Andrew Yang. After two and a half years of campaigning, Delaney admitted defeat and withdrew in January. Yang dropped out after getting just 1% of votes in Iowa and 3% in New Hampshire.
Others, like Michael Bloomberg, left it late to get involved. His strategy was to focus on states that voted on Super Tuesday, spending huge amounts of his personal wealth on ad campaigns. Ultimately, he came away with just a handful of delegates before promptly quitting the race and endorsing Joe Biden.
