Current delegate count outside of the South: Sanders 342, Clinton 268.

The South is almost done voting but the rest of the country has only begun!

Feel the Bern!

So can someone confirm, are any states winner take all for Democrats?

Yes, some are. I think. Not sure, though.
It's confusing......so - I second your question - can anyone confirm?

Being from Michigan this didn't shock me one bit, especially the Detroit area. Bernie's signs are basically everywhere and we are a Democratic area due to blue collar union workers.

What I don't understand is who in the heck voted for Hillary? No signs, no one I talked to supports her and yet she did well in the polls and the margin was slim for Bernie.

That concerns me.

Many say Sen Sanders will not run as an Independent in the 2016 presidential race if he is not nominated as a Dem, Sen Sanders said he would not run as a spoiler. Myself I see his supporters being angry with the DNC and HRC's dirty tricks and demanding he run against her! The independent vote, the youth vote, and lots of Dems backing him, he could destroy HRC!

My dream scenario is Dr Jill Stien with Sen Sanders as VP! I think the two of them could really improve this nation. Something I do not think the R's and D's can do while worshipping their lobbyists.

Answer: The ones who would benefit most of all by voting for Bernie.

Strange things in Michigan voting yesterday. My wife didn't have Trump on her ballot then she realized she was given a Democratic ballot?? She got the right ballot after they finally gave in and really looked to see if she REALLY CHECKED REPUBLICAN!! 6 hours later the same thing happened to the woman in front of me and she didn't think it was funny at all.

Really the poll workers can't tell the difference between the ONLY 2 BOXES ON THE FORM!!. Have to say it was a bunch of old women running the place and they were supposed to be cross checking and they couldn't see well enough to do their job.

Or messing with people.

I can't find any information on any winner take all Dem states. Could be wrong of course.

A lot of older women feel this is the only chance to see a women president in their lifetime, those that benefit from wall street and low information voters.

HRC has been running for presiden (in her mind) since before Billy left the white house, so of course she has stacked the deck in her favor ie DWS at the DNC.

Still no confirmation if any dem States are winner take all? It's hard to get good real info on the election. Like how many pledged delegates each person actually has.

Not saying no Sanders supporters will vote trump, but I and lots of others plan to vote for Jill Stein, green party if Sen Sanders is not the Dem nominee.

Same here. I was just talking w/a close friend about that yesterday. I've finally reached a point where I can't vote for Hillary even if Trump is the nominee. The Dem establishment has completely alienated me. My friend laughed and said I was late to the party lol.

Though I will add 2 things.

1) I don't think Stein has locked up the Green Party nomination yet. So there's always the chance they'll have a different candidate.

2) The Green Party is starting to irk me. This is the perfect recruitment opportunity for them and I think they're blowing it! A large portion of the electorate is independent, and many of us accept large parts of socialism and progressivism. Bernie's vast support proves this.

The Green Party (and the other actual left wing parties) should be incredibly aggressive right now so they can attract as many of these people as possible. They should be constantly reminding people that there is another option and that nobody has to vote for the lesser of 2 evils (same goes for the supposed Libertarians). Instead, people are choosing to vote for the lesser of 2 evils because they'd rather vote for an evil "winner" than a good "potential loser". That's ironic because the good "losers" would win if more people voted based on their supposed principles instead of cult-like party affiliations.

In the last week I have seen a couple GP posts at r/politics, they know Sen Sanders is counting on the Independents to support him on his nomination. The GP are banking on the fact, there will be many Sanders supporters that will never vote HRC, very interesting times we live in!

I look like numbers 3 & 4 on that list (though technically, I'm in the South and already voted for Bernie).


And ironically, if Bernie gets the nomination, he'll be the 2nd Jewish guy to get my vote for the presidency. I care far more about a candidate's positions and character than I do their skin color, religion, or ethnicity. I'd even vote for a Hindu, an atheist, a transsexual, or an asexual if their policies align with my own.

Agreed policy is the game changer!

With Sen Sanders we have a track record that proves his policy is not just campaign promises.

With HRC one must always ask, #WhichHillary ?

Really enjoying your posts, keep up the good work!

No Dem primaries or caucuses are winner take all. That is strictly a Republican thing.

I'm from michigan. Didn't surprise me.
Facebook has been going at it, Bernie's rainbows and then socialist rebuttals. Not a lot for any particular GOP. The economic illiteracy is scary though. scarier than anything the boogieman trump has said.


primary lines were slow due to ID verification but seemed like normal crowds.
