Pledged delegates are those that are earned by the candidates by way of the primaries.

Democrat’s “Superdelegates” are party officials and office holders who get convention seats and are allowed to support the candidate of their choice. The Republican’s “Unpledged” are similar, only office holders are not included in that group.
