Appearing on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, Sanders was asked about the possibility of Biden having more delegates.

Embattled socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has admitted he will drop if former Vice President Joe Biden has the majority of pledged delegates ahead of the Democratic National Convention.

Biden, who has since gained endorsement from Presidential candidate dropouts like Mike Bloomberg and Pete Buttigieg, gained traction during Super Tuesday as CNN touted his "juggernaut" comeback.

Appearing on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, Sanders was asked about the possibility of Biden having more delegates.

Rachel Maddow asked Sanders, "If, at the end of the day, it turns out that Vice President Biden is going to have more delegates than you do heading into the convention, will you drop out?"

Sanders replied:

"Of course, I’m gonna drop out; he will win."

'If Biden walks into the convention, or at the end of the process has more votes than me, he’s the winner,' Sanders said

"I mean, I suspect, we will run through the process, and I think people have a right to vote," Sanders added.

"But if Biden walks into the convention, or at the end of the process has more votes than me, he’s the winner," he admitted.

Maddow then asked, "And that’s true whether or not he has a majority or a just plurality?"

Sanders replied:

"That’s what I’ve said. Look, here’s the story, and there’s some confusion about this."

"Last time around in 2016, you talked about 2016, you’ll remember that before the very first vote was cast in Iowa, Hillary Clinton had 500 superdelegates at her side," Sanders said.

"She walked into the campaign with 500 superdelegates. I thought that was totally outrageous, absurd, and undemocratic," he stated.

"We fought very hard in the Democratic rules process to get rid of all superdelegates. That is my preference," Sanders continued.

"I think it should be the decision of the people, not Washington insiders. We lost, but what we did get is not getting rid of all super delegates at the convention voting, but that on the first ballot, there won’t be any superdelegates voting."

Earlier his week, Sanders accused the 'political establishment' of conspiring to "derail" his campaign in a message to his supporters during a fundraising plea Tuesday evening.

Sanders wrote in an email titled "We need a lot of donations today," said the establishment had chosen Joe Biden as their candidate.

"The political establishment has chosen their candidate. It's Joe Biden," the email reads.

"And they're lining up behind him in an effort to derail our momentum in this race."

On Tuesday, Sanders was asked by CNN's Anderson Cooper whether the nomination was being taken away from him by the Democratic Party.

He refused to answer his question.
