The final result likely won't be anywhere near 71/27, even if she does end up taking the state. Relax, grab a drink or do whatever else you do to chill out, and wait for more than 1% to come in.

This is not a winner take all night.

Sanders may not get as many delegates as we have hoped but he will get enough. Clinton still does not have the magical number needed to cinch this so on we go.

We are in this for the long haul. There are lots of dirty tricks, smears, lies, and bullshit occurring. It will lose Clinton the GE if she wins the nomination.

The rural or suburban ones usually call in first and they will be more conservative. It ain't over 'til it's over.

her lead is dripping and he is rising.he is now at 31% and she 68%

Intresting in NC she has dropped to 58% and bernie is at 39% If this holds.NC will be bernie's best state in the south.

It's the start of a revolution. It won't be easy; the campaign was a long shot, and winning would change much with congress and the courts anyways. Lets not whine; the progressives of our pass had to face jail, Brinks strongman, and baseball bats to the head. We keep this going win or lose.
