Thankyou for sharing those delegate numbers, CoBaZ! I wonder if the upcoming states have "clean" non-convoluted rules with delegate assignment? Ted Cruz seems to think he can still win by massaging the delegates more than the voters, like he did in Colorado, Wyoming, and a couple of other states.

I would hate to see Donald Trump win every one of the remaining states, and still not get 1,237 delegates!

They did elect her twice. But that aside N.Y. is a blue state. Republicans never look to N.Y. in a general and in fact they have so few republicans that Hillary racked up more votes than all three of them put together. N.Y. means necessary delegates now but won't mean a thing for republicans come November.

Bernie is a socialist. That'll haunt him forever.


I think he's been reelected as a U.S. Congressman and Senator for 20 years straight. Being a "socialist" must be popular in Vermont. Vermont is radically different than most of the country?
ok a quick restructure.
I think you mean he was a representative. In the house? Reps and senators together make up the congress so in all cases he was a congressman whether he was in the house or the senate😀.
Each state gets two senators . Reps are based on population. Senators get 6 yr terms reps get 2. There is no limit to the number of terms they can serve hence career guys like Ted Kennedy rest his soul.

Anyway just a quick note for our " this week in our government" class lol.

Thank-you for that lesson, SillyOlMe. I'll have to refresh myself with how the general election votes are converted into actual results. I think you're saying that Republicans in New York shouldn't bother to vote in November?

N.Y. will never vote republican. Trump looses N.Y. before it even starts.

In the news, they refer to the office holder as either Congressman Smith, or Senator Smith. Is this terminology incorrect?

Oh no I'd never advocate not voting!!! Left right up down. I'm American before anything else. Everybody get your butts out and vote.
I'm just saying traditionally N.Y. falls to a democrat in the general election. Based solely on history. You just never hear republicans talking about a strategy for N.Y. in a general election.
Certain states you just expect to go a certain way based on history. N.Y. loves dems.

Oh no you're right that's because senator holds more esteem so they make that distinction. It's just one of those Washington odd things.
They say congressman for the house of representative but technically they're both congressmen. However you find many reps or congressmen looking to get elected to the Senate. You don't find a senator looking to get elected to the house because it's looked at as lower. Even though power wise they're pretty equal. The Senate's an easier stepping stone to the whitehouse.
Either way they're not doing what we elected them to do lol.
