Delegate Count Leaving Bernie Sanders With Steep Climb

A big win in NH, a within margin of error loss in Nevada and a coin flip in Iowa. However, Bernie Sanders only has 70 delegates compared to Clintons 502. I think the 'bern' is slowing being put out.

www.nytimes.com...


Mrs. Clinton has 502 delegates to Mr. Sanders’s 70; 2,383 are needed to win the nomination. These numbers include delegates won in state contests and superdelegates, who can support any candidate. She is likely to win a delegate jackpot from the overwhelmingly black and Hispanic areas in the Southern-dominated Super Tuesday primaries on March 1, when 11 states will vote and about 880 delegates will be awarded.

“She could effectively end the race in less than two weeks’ time on Super Tuesday,” said David Wasserman, a top analyst for The Cook Political Report, who has been closely tracking the delegate race.


Although not a DNC supporter, i find this to be one of the most corrupt things there are. In hindsight, it shows how the 08 and 12 elections were perpetrated also.

If Clinton is indicted, this could all change but at this point it is not looking good for the anti-establishment socialist followers of Sanders. Why are the Sanders supporters not attacking or petitioning the DNC?

I think many are probably rethinking their comments about Hillary, since they'll be voting for her instead of Trump/Cruz/Rubio in the general election.

It'll be amusing to see her defended against the GOP.

Did I also hear she cut hi card , too?

The delegates thing is what matters, shes 'winning' there too, imagine that.

She won't win a popularity contest. To bad the people's vote hardly matters anymore.

Oh my God. At least the Republicans got their # together and didn't give Bush a chance. Too bad the Democrat voters are loonballs and Hillary still has a shot.

I had thought Killary had it all wrapped up back in August.

Good Point.
Looks like Republicans are more progressive and anti-establishment than Democrats.
It also looks like the RNC is less corrupt than the DNC.

The common citizen vote was never meant to decide much in America in the first place. To me, the sad part is that people do not understand how little their vote matters in large elections.

Getting involved in local and state government will do more to help clean up the federal government than any vote cast for clowns and demagogues in the race for President.

I have always thought Bernie was a distraction but did not think HIllary would still be here. I reaaallllly expected a person to 'step in'. I think the issue here is the script.

You see, Bush is supposed to be where Trump is.

Is this a surprise? TPTB coronated Hillary after Obama was elected in '12. Get ready for eight years of pure hell. For those who b!tched about Obama haven't seen anything yet.

Really, if Bernie Sanders can't stop her...no Democrat candidate really ever had a serious chance to do so.

I would say, it looks like the RNC is less corrupt than the DNC..... for now. We still need to see how Trump does moving on... and if he does well.... will the RNC continue to have rumblings about a brokered convention

I would say that even if one considers most of the original 16 or so candidates on the R side were useless, I do believe that it was refreshing to at least start at a point where people had a healthy number of candidates to ponder.

I found it very, very odd that the D's essentially went with a single candidate in Killary. The O'Mally compaing was a joke from the beginning. Nobody really knew who he was and he didn't exactly make a splash on the scene. I think Bernie has already achieved much more than anyone really thought he would (and as shown, due in part to the DNC rules, he never really had a chance). The thing I wondered about, was of ALL the politicians/activists on the Democrat end of the spectrum.... NOBODY wanted to seek the highest office in the land (outside of SC justice)? No Biden? No Warren? I even partially expected either Kerry or Gore to give it another shot. From what I see and hear a decent percentage of the people voting for Killary are doing so while holding their nose.

As for the election.

I think the issue here is the script. Who the big money backers wanted.Bush is supposed to be where Trump is right now. Bernie Sanders would pull some votes in FOR the DNC and both would also push some to the GOP. This would create the sway for the GOP. They are getting good results from minorities which is key.

I really think the plan was Hillary gets indicted, the DNC 'implodes' and then Bush was to walk into office. I think those things are still in motion and cannot be stopped now. Maybe that is why the FBI is so pissed off and has not been allowed to drop any info yet. The GOP and TPTB right now are trying to figure out a way to stop Trump from taking the open path that was supposed to be for Bush.

What they did not count on is the voter being done after 8 years of establishment to sway the narrative with Sanders and Trump.

8 years of Hillary will be like 8 more years of Obama.

But it will insure a GOP majority in the House and Senate.

But it would mean a progressive Supreme Court.

It's not over till the fat lady sings, I think the Bernie Sanders supporters still have a few states up their sleeve.

The Media at every turn is trying to paint it as "over." It's way too soon for that.

I too think it's likely Hillary will probably end up with the nomination, but it's not over yet no matter how much the Clinton Camp wants Sanders to just go away already.

For all the meme posts on my Facebook wall constantly reminding me to "Feel the Bern" and "Are you feeling the Bern yet?" you would think the guy is already president.

I'll be glad to see my feed return to it's normal status, albeit with much more sad frog memes about the world ending because people didn't feel the Bern.

Can't wait to start hearing all the Dems excuses once they all flip flop back on over to Hilary. Lesser of two evils, blah blah blah yada yada yada

Funny you should write that. Although this has nothing to do with Facebook, there is something that I have noticed that jumped out at me not too long ago.

I live in a VERY blue state and in the past few election cycles I saw TONS of Obama/Biden Kerry/Edwards bumper stickers on cars. I mean all over the place. This time around, I hardly see anything. I see a few Bernie ones here and there but I have barely seen ANY Hillary ones. Perhaps that will change after primary season is over, but if my memory serves me correctly, even during the previous primaries I saw lots and lots of Obama, Hillary stickers.

I thought she didn't actually get any super delegates yet because those aren't appointed until after the primaries? Or am I mistaken? The media is already saying she has the super delegates, but is it official or just assumption?

I think bumper stickers in general are going out of style. People go through cars so fast nowadays and honestly to blast your political affiliation in a lot of ways is just asking for trouble. It shouldn't work that way - but it seems it does.

Plus your FB/Twitter/ECT is a much more effective way to let everyone know your ideologies online while maintaining some semblance of privacy at least when driving around.

That's all just speculation though I could be way wrong about the bumper sticker thing
