3 million +

That is how many more Democrats have voted for the next president over her Quixotic opponent.

Let that sink in as you dream of contested conventions and indictments that will never happen.

Democrats prefer Clinton.

Overwhelmingly.

29. Except it's entirely false. You leave out the states with caucuses. Typical distortion.

 

Seems the Clinton devotees are willing to sell their souls for a victory. The People will prevail over the Rich and Powerful and their minions that are terrified to fight for their freedoms. I don't mind it you want to grovel before your chosen authoritarian leader, but please think about all the people that will suffer if we have a Goldman-Sachs sponsored presidency. How can you turn your backs on the 2.5 million American children that are homeless? Oh I know, Clinton will give them cake.

22. Votes are not cast in a caucus.

 

Group preferences are measured in a caucus.

But if you want to somehow calculate how many votes a caucus represents and count them, Hillary will still be winning by millions.

And while we're counting hypothetical votes that can't be counted, maybe we should also count votes that don't yield delegates like those in non-biding primaries. In Nebraska and Washington where Clinton lost the caucus, but won the primary, tens of thousands more people participated in these contests by voting.

I sure hope that the super delegates in Nebraska and Washington respect the choice of the primary voters.

23. Yep.. in the republican caucus in IA they do a straw poll

vote.. but on the Democratic side.. we stand and are counted.. and in order to be viable you have to have at least 15% of the people there.. so we are counted individually to gt that percentage.. If you don't have 15% you have to disband.. you can join another group.. or leave..and then by the number of individual in your group they figure out how many county delegates the nominee gets.. they spit it at my caucus..

28. Quixotic is used to describe a pointless endeavor doomed to failure.

Bernie's campaign could not be considered to be quixotic until April 26. Before then you could argue he had a chance. Since that date, he has had no chance to win, hence the use of the word quixotic to describe his campaign. He has lost and everybody can see that except the hardcore Bernie supporters. Perhaps they will see light on Tuesday once the media officially declares Hillary the winner and pressure mounts on Bernie to concede.

40. Your numbers are worthless.

Because of primaries counted differently, and the incessant vote tampering.

Nobody thinks it's valid, so I don't know what you think it does for you to keep repeating it. There is no point you're winning with it. Although it is amusing to watch you keep thinking you are.

If Hillary was such a great candidate, she could have afforded to run a fair election without all the shenanigans.

There isn't anything we could do about it, but don't labor under the delusion that we buy it as a legitimate indicator of anything whatsoever.

And this is why Bernie needs to continue to fight for every vote and every delegate. The winners will lord over every net vote as evidence of her superiority.
