Bernie insults black voters and lies about the math ...

... all in one interview.

Way to go, Bernie!



This guy's candidacy is way past its shelf life ....

Bernie Sanders told “Nightly Show” host Larry Wilmore at a taping Wednesday evening that scheduling Southern states early in the Democratic primary “distorts reality.”

Sanders’ remarks came after Wilmore asked him whether he believed the Democratic primary system is “rigged.”

“Well, you know,” Sanders said, “people say, ‘Why does Iowa go first, why does New Hampshire go first,’ but I think that having so many Southern states go first kind of distorts reality as well.”

.....

Despite his Southern struggles, Sanders insisted to Wilmore that he can win the Democratic nomination, despite lagging by more than 200 pledged delegates. “Our path is with the math,” the Vermont senator said. “We started off this campaign having to run in the Deep South—”

No caucus, mail in ballots.

39. Really? Here in CO we are mailed our ballots for elections we fill it out and mail it back.

If you feel like driving you can drop it off. The Caucus sucks and we need to do away with that. But seriously how fucking hard so you think it is to mail those out ? If some states can do mail in ballots to say it's impossible is just ridiculous. How hard is it for the whole country to vote in November in one day? We do it every 4 years.

46. As a single state, yes

Doing that for all fifty at one time, yes, the logistics of the actual vote itself is fine.

The lead up to it? The logistics are simply impossible and would disenfranchise a significant number of people. And we're not talking about a single election. We're talking about time for candidates to get around the country, fundraise to do it, interact with local concerns, build connections to local politicians, etc.

This is stuff that has to be done gradually - partially to show that they're ABLE to build this coalitions.

I completely respect you as a poster and have enjoyed the sharpness of many of your posts. But in this area it's something that I think you're looking at very narrowly and not what's really involved. It's like saying a country should be run as a business in saying that the primary season should be run like a single national election.

50. Colorado is not the only state with mail in ballots. How do you figure that mail in ballots in a

primary will disenfranchise a significant number of people? Do you think that caucuses are inclusive? Because caucus disenfranchise a lot and I mean a lot of voters, the voters who actually need to have a say in choosing who represents them.

So have a nation wide primary when the last state usualy votes or caucuses. The politicians can campaign as usual . Personally I think they campaign too fucking much, cut back on that shit and have nation wide televised debate, Their campaigns show nothing of their coalition building skills it shows what politicians owe them favors. It shows who can bullshit the best.

28. Sanders joined the party 9 months ago. The primary schedule with Super Tuesday . . .

primaries in southern states early has been in place for several presidential cycles. It wasn't designed to thwart Sanders.

He should have joined that party years ago, worked to help get other dems elected, built up goodwill and thus gain super delegates and national recognition outside of New England, then the AA voters in the early southern primaries would have known who he was and he would have won some of those early primaries and he'd probably be in the lead now.

He chose to stay independent for all those years. It is what it is. He has to deal with it.

10. he lost the south because there were large numbers of black voters in those primaries.

 

not because they watch NASCAR or speak with a twang or because they like to watch college football or because they like fried food or because Republicans in those states are crazy rightwing.

because black voters did not and do not feel him, and rejected him by overwhelming margins.

34. I think he lost the south because he barely campaigned there and people seldom vote for unknowns

For many Democrats, Hillary is a known and well-liked person. If one of those Democrats walked up to the voting booth and saw her name along with Bernie's name and they knew next to nothing about Bernie, they are probably going to vote for Hillary.

If Bernie had spent more time campaigning in the south and introducing himself to voters, he likely would have performed better in the south.

13. Did you even bother to click the LINK before you got personal with the thread starter?

This "So you" shit gets old after a while.

From the frigging LINK:


Hillary Clinton has overwhelmingly defeated Sanders in Southern primary contests. In South Carolina, the fourth state in the primary, Sanders’ margin of defeat was a landslide 48 points. A few days after that contest, Sanders lost by large margins in Arkansas, Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Virginia on March 1. Sanders also lost Florida and Mississippi, which vote slightly later that month.


Black voters make up a disproportionate share of the Democratic electorate in those Southern states, and constitute a voting bloc in which Sanders has consistently underperformed. The Vermont senator has been more successful in smaller, whiter and more liberal states like Maine, Washington and Minnesota. Sanders has also been able to win a slightly larger portion of black voters in northern states like Michigan and Illinois, exit polls showed.

Despite his Southern struggles, Sanders insisted to Wilmore that he can win the Democratic nomination, despite lagging by more than 200 pledged delegates. “Our path is with the math,” the Vermont senator said. “We started off this campaign having to run in the Deep South—”

“Trust me, I know about running in the Deep South,” Wilmore interjected.

Sanders laughed and continued. “Since we got out of the South we’re doing pretty well,” he said.



Now, it looks, to me, like SANDERS and TIME MAGAZINE (and anyone who takes note of the make-up of the electorate) is in that So you associate the Deep South with POC? category.

Why? The answer is in the ARTICLE: Black voters make up a disproportionate share of the Democratic electorate in those Southern states, and constitute a voting bloc in which Sanders has consistently underperformed.

55. That's why Larry said he knows something about running in the south. It IS "always about race"

when a large voting block of black people is denigrated as an "unfair disadvantage" to Saint Bernard.

Maybe if he'd tried appealing to that segment rather than dogwhistling about "white working men" he would have been better off.

He has only himself to blame for his clumsy, bone headed missteps--that continue to this day, with that kind of talk.

The good news is that Sanders is losing supporters every time he talks these days.

Interestingly, one of these friends had just returned from the Sanders rally, and was telling me how uncomfortable she felt with all the 'hateful group speak' (her words) she heard from attendees at the rally. She had previously said she was voting for Sanders, but I'm pretty sure she has changed her mind.

56. Thank you!

POC is not the first thing that pops into my head when someone uses the term "deep south" The words that pop in my head are words such as Mississipi, Alabama, hot, humid, farming, cooking, southern food.

And I do think it goes to show just how freaking obsessed HRC supporters are with using the race card and that their thinking that way actually exposes their own bigotry.

64. Where did the poster say "most black people ARE from the south?" Hmmmmm?

Maybe you should click on the link and read the article, too.

68. She implied it.

Sanders never mentions black people in the interview. The poster turned it into a POC issue when that is not the distortion Sanders is speaking if. The south is deep red dixiecrats conservative bible belt. Its going to favor the conservative in the race. which Hillary is.
