3. Yes, pretty dismal voter turnout so far.

The electorate of the greatest super power on earth really doesn't strongly care about who chooses who they vote for...

We oughtn't wonder how we got to 'here'.

4. I have heard over and over that the Superdelegates will never support the candidate who receives

the least votes.

5. Thanks for doing this. It was something I intended to do today.

 

Saved me work!

Hillary is the big leader by this metric.

Now to take a look at the pledged delegate spread.

6. Yes, all those southern state victories are going to be helpful in Nov.

So I don't know what you are trying to say here. Also, there are 34 more primaries and over 75% of the delegates yet to be determined.

Let's not jump to confusions. Let's just relax and see what happens.

Enjoy the show!

8. I don't understand? Are you saying that Clinton can't win in any state Bernie wins?

Why is that? Obama won states that Clinton won in 2008.

You don't seem to understand the relationship between the primary and the GE.

12. No, not at all what I was saying.

I am saying that no Dem candidate will ever win the EVs in those southern states. Secy Clinton also has to win in the states which Dems have carried in the recent presidential elections. She has done that, a couple of which were fairly close, but Sen. Sanders has handily won some, too. I would agree that VA was a big one for her.

But too many Clinton supporters have been posting that it is over for Sanders, and they've been doing so for weeks. Well, that doesn't go over so well when these results are much more nuanced than an overwhelming Clinton win where one could state that.

And I acknowledge that I am somewhat spinning a bit here, but this is still far from over.

I hope I have been more clear.

My best to you.

18. True. Neither Clinton nor Sanders is likely to prevail in the deep south

Just as neither Clinton nor Sanders are likely to prevail in Oklahoma.

And why, exactly, does Clinton need to win Democratic primaries in states that Democrats have carried in recent elections? As noted, Obama didn't win in NY or CA, but he handily carried those states in the GE. In fact, he lost the CA primary by 8 points and then won the GE by 14.

My point is that there is no basis for correlating the outcome of a primary with the outcome of the GE in the same state. If nominated, I would fully expect Bernie to take Mass in the GE. And even though Trump lost the OK primary, I would fully expect him to defeat either Sanders or Clinton in that state in the GE.

19. Okay, that's fine. So let's just let this play out.

And have some fun.

The best thing about that is we don't need to tear ourselves apart along the way.

Sound like a good plan?

20. Absolutely. We win if we stand together while the repubs tear themselves apart.

For us to cede back any of that advantage by not standing together would be tragic.

7. Super Tuesday 2008 had 24 primaries or caucuses, a much larger election day...

 

2008 vote total for Obama and Clinton after Super Tues 16,069,022
2016 total Sanders Clinton today: 5,641,950

We are not nearly so far along in the voting this cycle than we were post Super Tues in 08.....

14. revolutions that are election-focussed do require actual voting

I guess that part was not explained as well as it should have been - it's more fun just being part of a "revolution"
