EdwardBernays over at Bernie Sanders group

Hillary Clinton has gotten hundreds of thousands fewer votes than in the 2008 primaries.

Using a Breibart (rightwing propaganda) piece fails with the argument.

Total voter turnout in Democratic Primaries are lower in 2016 than all states in 2008 except for Illinois and Michigan.

Illinois -- 2008: 2,038,614 --- 2016: 2,039,049 -- Increase of 435 votes.
Michigan* -- 2008: 594,398 --- 2016: 1,169,075 -- Increase of 574,677.

There were no other states with a higher turnout in 2016 compared to 2008.

* Obama and other Democrats removed their name from the ballot due to Michigan not following the rules.

Running totals of 2016 primaries/caucuses completed between 2008 and 2016.
2008: 27,003,652
2016: 20,966,048


Running total of votes between Sanders in 2016 and Obama in 2008 for primaries/caucuses completed.
Obama: 13,134,833
Sanders: 9,110.693

1. Sigh. Now you come with facts again.

Haven't you learnt that they're not interested in facts? Facts have a clintonite bias, doncha know?

3. They've been reduced to wacko RW sites for awhile now

I've seen Brietbart, The Free Beacon, The Washington Times, National Review, and even NewsMax.

It's pathetic. I've never wanted one in the past but I'm thinking a purge would be good for this place.

4. My finger has been

hovering over the "ignore button" for that one for some time.

Though my list has grown long, there's still room on the page.

7. A nice diversion.

But today, in the here and now, she's winning and by a large margin.
