Gallup Poll: Hillary and Trump supporters lead in enthusiasm


Some perspective on why its time to END THE CAUCUS.

3/26 three state caucuses
AK 10,600
HI 34,000
WA 25,000

3/15 Missouri state Primary

Caucuses are awful bastions of voter suppression and need to end.

"National polls are meaningless! National polls are awesome!"

"Red states dont count! Red states do count!"

"Caucuses suck! Caucuses rock!"

"Superdelegates are undemocratic! Superdelegates are essential!"

"We need a 50 state strategy! We dont need a 50 state strategy!"

"We need to defend a womens right to choose! Planned Parenthood and NARAL are establishment!"

"We need a political revolution! We dont need to fundraise for downticket!"

"Hillary only cares about herself! Bernie or Bust!"

"I care about the issues! I'll stay home and let Trump win!"





Welcome to the progressive primary season of 2016

Bernie Sanders is currently NOT winning the Democratic primary, and I can prove it to you.

Denial is powerful. The extent to which the human mind can conjure up scenarios besides the one we don’t want to see is impressive, the result of some weird psychological glitch that probably evolved as a way of allowing us to keep our sanity. I don’t know; I’m not an evolutionary psychologist.

What I am is a dude who spends a lot of time looking at poll numbers, and particularly poll numbers related to the 2016 nomination contests. I am the author of various articles assessing the chances of Sen. Bernie Sanders in the Democratic iteration thereof; those articles come to the conclusion that Hillary Clinton is very, very likely to be the party’s nominee. It’s a simple function of math. Sanders needs to win a lot of states with a lot of delegates by a lot of points -- something that he’s so far shown no ability to do. He needs to win about three-quarters of the remaining delegates. Unless deus emerges from the machina, he will not.

But that’s me looking at things objectively. I suspect that Seth Abramson — a University of New Hampshire English professor and author of “Bernie Sanders Is Currently Winning the Democratic Primary Race, and I’ll Prove It to You” — is not considering the race from the same space.

Abramson’s “proof” consists of the following argument. Actually, Bernie Sanders has more support from Democrats. It’s just that no one knows who he is. So Hillary Clinton banks a lot of early votes. But then they hear about Sanders and prefer him, and that’s why voting on Election Day favors Sanders. So, really, Sanders is preferred.

The only problem with this is all of the parts.

EPIC MASSIVE Voter Fraud uncovered!

It appears that Hillary Clinton won more of the popular vote last night yet did not win the most delegates!


Caucuses seem to encourage voter suppression by discouraging voter turnout.

Hard to make the time commitment for the working, the elderly, the disabled, those with kids, etc.

Only 24k were able to make it to caucus in Utah.

Its time to end the caucuses. Make every state streamlined with the same primary process. And make access to voting more efficient.

Rolling Stone Magazine Endorses Hillary Clinton

If Bernie Wins the Nomination...

Should the Hillary crowd just write in Hillary at the ballot box?

I see some here advocating Bernie or Bust, so why should Hillary supporters turn around and back Bernie?

I can think of plenty of reasons why this would be a dangerous, stupid, and psychotic thing to do (see: Trump. See: SCOTUS). Obviously voting for the Dem nominee is the only sane choice, but then what does that say about the Bernie or Bust crowd?
