61. Amborin says the MSM, especially MSNBC, doesn't want anyone to see that MSNBC video.

On the night of the Indiana primary, posters claimed there was no media coverage of Bernie's win, even though there were headlines everywhere.

Thread after thread suggests many are claiming Clinton will reach 2383 via pledged delegates alone, even though nobody can point to a single post in which that claim is made.

And then there's the supposed value of hypothetical general election match-up polls at this juncture (Remember President Dukakis? Me neither.).

And then there's false claims about who independents are: http://www.democraticunderground.com/12512026152

And then there's the false claims about which candidate has done best in the 'reddest' parts of the US (Sanders).

And then there's the conspiracies surrounding exit poll data (historically untrustworthy for numerous reasons).

And then there are all of the posts suggesting low primary turnout translates to low general election turnout (historically, there's no correlation).

And then there are the suggestions that losing a state in the primary means that person will lose that state in the general, which is so obviously untrue.

And then there are the posts implying Clinton can't win open primaries, even though she's won more open primaries than Sanders has.

And then there's just the overall failure to grasp demographic and mathematical realities.

Far too many on DU are living in a fantasy world where preconceived notions and desires trump reality.
