It's a lie. Not true. She needs like 900. The media keeps counting superdelegates

I don't know where Puerto Rico results are, though.

Stop watching the news!

Super Delegates don't vote until July 27th. The press is wrong to count them.

PR only has 60 pledged total. I haven't found results yet but I did hear shenanighans about them closing a bunch of polling places (typical).

What I don't get is the state/district being responsible for paying for these things 100%. Especially if they are closed primaries. That is just wrong.

Long before any one was aware they'd be faced with this shortage of polling stations. So many ways to skin a cat.
Bleah.

and as I've said many times she can lose now or lose next November. Obvious election fraud doesn't sit well with people. This is going to be a disaster not just for the US but for the rest of the world which will have to deal with Trump. Not pretty at all.
