Today's primaries are in Nebraska (R), and West Virginia (R) + (D)

W.V. is polling heavily for Sanders.

Lets see if Cruz and Kasich get votes in both States after the drama last week in Indiana.

some background .....
A Look at the Stakes in West Virginia and Nebraska Primaries


Even though the Democratic presidential race is still competitive, tonight will be bigger for the Republicans.

Republican voters are going to the polls in two states -- West Virginia and Nebraska -- while only West Virginia is in play for the Democrats tonight.

There are 70 delegates up for grabs for Republicans tonight: 36 in Nebraska and 34 in West Virginia.


Post results as they are published.

Hillary already blew W.V. Probably Penn in the General, as well.
Over a 1/3 of registered Dems in WV have already indicated they'll vote Trump in the General over Hillary.
GO BERNIE!

Sanders' wants to put the coal mines out of business too. His re-education package is larger...but W.V. Dems will be mostly voting Bernie in the Primary as a protest against Crooked Hillary.

How many primary races has Crooked Hillary now lost in a row to Bernie?
Yet, Hillary still has those rigged 500+ Super Delegates...so Bernie is getting screwed even though he's more popular.

Dems...aren't you ashamed of your party?
Aren't you angry?

The DNC is shoving a big fat crooked establishment bureaucrat down your throat...and you have to pretend you love her...because they won't let you nominate anyone else.

The DNC is playing Democrat voters for suckers.

Rigged.


Looks that way, I never understood how they could dish out delegates with zero percent reporting. Seems sketchy.

Rigged from the very beginning for Crooked Hillary.

Sanders is declared winner of West Virginia!

I still think that if it was rigged for Hillary from the beginning there would be no email investigation weighing down her campaign.

I've seen way bigger scandals buried utterly and completely.

The Super Delegates are not "bound" unlike the regular delegates . They can swap "sides" at any time and pledge to either candidate right up till the very last minute. That is the reason Sanders is still in the race and "touting" his many wins against Clinton. This could still get interesting.

Actually most of the candidates who suspended their campaign have still been getting votes in each state.

I guess some people will vote for whoever they want on the ballot regardless of if the candidate has a chance of winning. That's their right.

That or they mailed in their votes ahead of time.

That's a good possibility!
Some might have been absentee ballots.

But all names are still on the voting machine ballots too.

Never thought of early votes.

I bet that explains a lot.

In the meantime, Trump opens up with 60% in Nebraska.

As long as a campaign is "suspended" and not formally ended, then the candidate's name will still appear on the ballot AND that candidate can DIRECT their won delegates to a candidate of their choosing.

A campaign cannot be formally ended until all debts are paid. Once it has formally ended, the candidate no longer appears on ballots and simply forfeits their delegates without any say in who they support.
