The Fair Thing To Do Is... Throw OUT The Coin Toss Business... It is Too Close For That Kind of

Nonsense! Count the raw vote and PUBLICIZE IT AS WELL!

Absolutely a TIE by ANY Stretch and Hillary Does NOT want to accept it. Hillary IS in Acute Denial!!!!

In ANY event, Bernie WON the hearts of people across America for the way he handled himself vs his opponent...

Who was characterized as... "Having a MELTDOWN!" By Mrs Greenspan...

Chuck Todd and Brian Williams were beside themselves and actually speaking their mind rather than the script as they were incredulous in Hillary jumping out and ... "Declaring Victory" when the result was in every context a TIE!

The Inevitable One IS in TROUBLE! She has not a soul to blame BUT herself...

1. This concept is common in election law

There are actual political offices that have been settled this way in a number of elections

3. I don't care if a small-town mayor is determined by a coin toss after a tie.

But that isn't how we should choose a president. When precincts in presidential caucus can't otherwise decide who gets a delegate, they should award one fewer delegate.

4. Feel D. Bern!!!!

One thing for certain. Things are going to get very ugly from here on out.

This is a monumental embarrassment for Clinton.

And the Queen does not take kindly to knaves losing the crown. The media can no longer ignore Sanders. This is now THE STORY.

6. They need to go to a paper ballot so a proper recount can be made if necessary.

A coin toss . . . how ridiculous.

7. In other words, I like Iowa caucuses until I actually learned how they work

It's a weird, nutty process. But hey, here's a whole bunch of non-Iowans to tell them that the way they do things is wrong and absurd.

8. Remember in 2008 when people derided Clinton's team for not knowing the rules

 

And praised Obama's team for understanding how things worked?

Yeah, good times.



If you're upset about this method of election, lobby the Iowa Democratic Party to change their methods for the 2020 Caucuses. It's never fair to change the rules after the game.
