DEC. 17, 2015: With 271,527 votes cast -- and all three presidential candidates campaigning directly for your vote -- the results are in and they are extraordinary. Bernie Sanders has earned Democracy for America's endorsement in the 2016 Democratic Party presidential primary with an astonishing, record-breaking 87.9% of the vote.


The Democracy for America results are in, and Bernie Sanders has obliterated the damn thing with an insane 87.9%, or 238,672 out of 271,527 votes cast. The people who say he isn't electable, or doesn't actually have much support? Wroooong.

Even as one of his staunch supporters, I'm honestly shocked he won by so much. Over eight times what Clinton received. This is definitely a big win for Bernie, in my opinion. No candidate has previously gotten the endorsement, and importantly it shows that he's capable of curing voter apathy. Some people may still decide to say that Clinton has a "bigger base", and while I personally think that's ridiculous it may possibly be true, but the important thing is that Sander's supporters actually voted. Because they want him to win. Because he isn't being supported as "best of a bad bunch." or "The least terrible." They actively want him to win.

I'd love to add more, but the numbers really speak for themselves. What do those of you who support Trump, Rand, N/A, or god forbid Clinton herself, have to say about this?

I've never heard of this group?

I do know that some unions are backing Hillary, much to the anger of their members.

Here's a Politico article that would shed a bit more light on them, though I'd recommend Wikipedia or something for the details.

Seems a bit early. My union is still undecided but is leaning toward Bernie, But they will support whoever is the Demb. nomination.

OK, so a group known to be very liberal is backing a very liberal candidate. Duh.

News at 11.

I think the most important thing is how he ground Hillary into dust. Almost (but not quite) nine times her vote count. This proves the people who seem to like to claim that he's "unelectable" wrong.

Oh, it's also important to reiterate that this is the first time they've endorsed someone. They didn't endorse Obama.

I support Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton. A lot of people think Hillary is involved in illegal activities, and she is the subject of at least one investigation at the moment.

F YES! This is a huge endorsement and a lot of money directly to Bernie's campaign.

I felt confident he would win this one and it says a lot in my opinion.

The next President is going to be decided by the Democratic Primary. That is what people need to decide, who among the candidates running on the Democrat ticket do you want to be President and vote for them in the Primary. Not saying that no one should protest vote, of course. If Bernie wasn't running, I would be voting Independent or Green.

Which also, to me anyway, says that liberals do not think that Hillary is a liberal. Rather that she is really conservative in a liberal coat.

Great news. We definitely don't want Hillary as our next president.

Pretty much. As... I believe it was Thom Hartmann (or maybe Jessie Ventura) who said that Hillary is a "Republican Lite", and given the choice between her and a true Republican, obviously they would vote for the Republican. Though I dislike calling her, or indeed any of the GOP, "Republicans", because they are a disgrace to what being a Republican once meant.

If Bernie wins the Primaries, he is your next president.
If Hillary corrupts her way through them, say hello to President Donaldo el Trump. (Or whoever else the GOP elects.)

Disagree. I think Bernie can beat Trump. But I think Hillary Beats Trump. I think as it whittles down to the last couple of candidates...Rubio can beat Trump and Rubio can beat Hillary but straight up that's too close to call and I give Hillary a slight edge, but if Trump goes independent then Hillary Beats Rubio. Straight up Rubio vs Sanders is too close to call.

That's my analysis as of now, but that will probably change.

Between Bernie and Hillary, Bernie would be the lesser of two evils. I actually like a few of the things he has to say. Very few.

LOL

So where is Sanders going to get over $1 billion dollars to buy the election ?

Hell the guy ain't even got the nomination.

People saying Sanders is 'electable' is just as funny as saying Trump is.

They better get used the FACT the Hillary will be their Nominee.

This Sanders nonsense is just that....Nonsense

The GOP is getting blown up by Trump.

The DEMS should consider the same thing.

Maybe then, can good fresh people can go to DC.

For now, DEMS get the criminal Hillary. Say hi to President Trump.

People are wicked pissed. No career Politician has a chance.

You are most likely spot on with that assessment. Doesn't mean I won't stop supporting Bernie though. What makes Bernie stand out from the others is he will tell you his plans and how he is going to accomplish them. The rest of the candidates have nothing but empty rhetoric. I wouldn't hire a contractor without a solution for the problem, so why do people continue to elect a President with no solutions???

The one thing that I don't agree with Bernie on is his immigration policies. I tend to lean more right in regards to immigration, but the rest of his plans seem spot on in accordance to what I feel needs to happen in this country. Fight corruption, Infrastructure, Break up banks to big to fail, make Wall Street pay for what they did to the economy, etc.

If Hillary is nominated as the Democratic candidate, I will not be voting.

I am not telling anyone not to.

Support who you want, as long as you want, Vote for who you want.

Remember in the end NONE of us get WHAT WE WANT.

Oh, how very poignant. and generous of you.......

How about this - you STOP telling and posting lies about what Bernie Sanders stands for -----
and THEN leave us alone to vote for who we want. Meanwhile, we'll continue to post what he really stands for, and call your posts for what they are:
ignorant disinfo parroting

Because - stop spreading disinfo. Please. Check out some of the sources you've conveniently discarded, dismissed, or ignored. It doesn't matter how many quotes from past textbooks, sites, or literature or sources you link showing that Hitler's regime was labelled by him as a "socialist" situation.

It doesn't matter how much you try to divert people from what Bernie actually wants, and how those very things have been beneficial to other countries which have adopted them.......
the data is clear.

Stop pretending that you don't avail yourself of "social programs" that are implemented already here in the USA.

If.... that is, IF. PERHAPS you are at all capable and/or willing to do that.

But then again, seems to be that you are stuck and dealing with

And you're doing it willfully


Remember in the end NONE of us get WHAT WE WANT.

That is correct, neo. NONE OF US do.....
so, about time to suck it up. You do realize that, I'm sure. Perhaps focus more on the society that sustains you rather than your self-absorbed stuff.

You won't go hungry. Sanders' plans include taking care of you.
