Primary Polling

www.realclearpolitics.com...

New York...Connecticut....Pennsylvania....he is approaching or is over 50%. Over 60% in a new NY poll. The final big state will be California which shows both candidates on a rise but other than that the field is open.

Head to Head

He is even in a PA FOXNews Poll...he is there when everyone said it would never happen. There may be others that show him killed but this is showing a turn in opinion. The one showing they are tied is some just last week.

www.realclearpolitics.com...

Why will the GOP not unite and simply crush the DNC? (this is of course rhetorical....)

He still has as chance to get the delegates. It will be interesting now that the establishment has shown their cards. He pointed out the corruption. People will stand behind that. I also like how Rand said it is not rigged but biased...a nice way to say the fix is in....remember it was his dad who made the GOP change their ways.

www.realclearpolitics.com...




"I hear someone has been saying they are rigged," the Kentucky senator said. "I don't think they are rigged, but they are biased. And intentionally so... Rigged would mean it was illegal and somehow shady. It is done primarily in the open, and they are biased in favor of the establishment." "Fox example in 2012 when my dad was running," he continued. [The party made] a special rule that said you couldn't win unless you had eight states. And then they didn't count his votes. But it is interesting now if you talk to all the Republican establishment, they are saying oh yeah, your votes can be counted." "This is a big deal. Kasich's votes can not be counted, under rule 40b they should not be counted, and if it was Ron Paul, they were not counted in 2012." "You can see the clips. They say Iowa votes 28 votes for Ron Paul, and the podium says 'Iowa votes 28 votes for Mitt Romney, they repeated that the votes didn't go to them. This year they want the opposite. So is that a fair interpretation of the rules, and when you think about it, both Cruz and Trump have a great deal of incentive not to let anyone else [be nominated]. That's what the rules say."

Feels like they're in too deep to back down now. Prides are on the line.

Well, it isn't surprising since the Republicans haven't managed to provide any palatable alternatives. Who are people supposed to vote for if you are a Republican?

I am getting pretty tired of people saying that. It makes people stay home and not vote.

If you are not voting in protest of something, fine. But just saying 'because our vote doesn't count' is just stupid.

Participate or move to a foreign country where they have elections just for show and to avoid UN sanctions. Then you can say that. Theorize all you want, but just sitting around and typing is really weak.

Bernie Sanders is not a 'Loonie Lefty'. I recommend you watching the speech, from where I live from yesterday.
Then come back and tell me how loonie' he is.

Ummm if your from Colorado your vote literally doesn't count.

That's in other states as well.

Delegates choose who they want look at these states that the candidate get more votes but less candidates.

We tried socialism during the early days of America's first settlers, it did not go to well. I do not want to go back to a time where people start dying in the streets for the good of the State.

Perhaps no one is looking. Perhaps someone with another agenda has set America up....and will soon knock us down.

Cheers

The presidential election is unfortunately a popularity contest now days.

Pennsylvania - the delegates have already decided who they are going to vote for.
Some say they will vote for whoever wins their district, but they don't have to.
People vote for delegates, but I wonder how many are paying attention to who the delegates have already selected.

triblive.com...


Fifty-four delegates to the Republican National Convention who are elected from Pennsylvania's 18 congressional districts — three from each district — will be “unbound,” meaning they can vote to nominate whomever they want regardless of the April 26 primary's outcome.

We did find someone.

Last time anyone ever saw him, after the offer was made, he was running, screaming down the nearest interstate.

Actually, it's how people perceive their vote. It's not a straight democracy, as we are taught in school, where the victor is directly elected by the plurality of votes. For president, votes go toward delegates, and the delegates in turn choose the candidate, in some instances. Your actually voting for a surrogate who you hope chooses the person you voted for. For example, just recently in CO, Cruz got all delegates. No popular vote took place. Or the Superdelegates on the Dems side. Superdelegates ensure that people, through a popular vote, don't choose a wrong nominee (like Bernie Sanders, according to Debbie Wasserman Schultz). Look at 2000. Gore got the majority of popular votes, but Bush got in because of the electoral college. Unless people are aware of the rules, they assume this is a one person, one vote democracy. It isn't. I can't blame people for feeling disenfranchised. I can't blame them for sitting out. Mark my words, this year's general will have the lowest turnout in history if Sanders or Trump aren't the nominees.
