Distorted Reality

With Bernie's camp going all in on the racially-tinged criticism that the South 'distorts reality', I think we should return to a salient question about the primary calendar:

Why do Iowa and New Hampshire get to go first?

If Bernie thinks he's only losing because the South got to vote before the all important states of Idaho and Wyoming, let's consider the inverse.

Bernie Sanders might have been out of this race in January if the race did not start out with perhaps the two most unrepresentative states in the country. Crushing forty point losses in truly diverse states would have ended the Sanders candidacy before it started.

Is Bernie complaining about the outsized voice white voters get at the start?

5. These states never felt the bern, I really don't think it is going to be only the southern states.

Unless you reorganize the states and put NY and PA in the south. That is okay, we have lots of hosipility in the south, u het don't have much bern.
