Here we go folks!

After everyone thought it would be the GOP convention that would be contested, it looks like the shoe is on the other foot.

Out of the 3 candidates we are left with, 2 have the lowest approval ratings of all time and only one actually appears to care about the people of the United States.

Godspeed sir!

Word is Hilary will declare she has the votes on Tuesday by counting the super delegate votes...

The problem?

Those super delegate votes don't count until sometime in July. They can change between now and then.

If Hillary looses super delegate votes, she won't have enough to outright win the nomination.

Bernie is hoping to crush Hillary in California and get some of these super delegates to wise up and support him.

Hillary vs. Trump is a 50/50 shot.

Bernie vs. Trump is a win.

Hillary only does well against Sanders in states that have failed hacking inspections on their voting machines, coincidence? I think not.

Hillary is going to find it a lot harder to rig the national election than the primaries.

Bush didn't seem to have any trouble, don't see why she would.

I didn't think it would be possible, but I think this election is even sadder than 2012 was.

We're get the candidates we deserve. BS in BS out.

The question is whether or not she's already rigged California for the win.

She's sure has been quiet lately.

Maybe she's been ducking those criminal allegations.

or

Maybe she's been up to the devils business and rigging the election in California.

OP, don't count out the GOP convention being contested due to the amount of violence occurring around the Trump campaign.

Also, I sure hope the Dem convention is contested. I hate politicians but at least Bernie has a consistent record and (mostly) walks the talk.

Trump is a nightmare and Hillary just keeps getting worse with the panama leaks exposing some of her major donors and affiliates like THIS and Haim Saban (univision owner/ convicted tax cheat fined for +200 million dollars / wife sits on Clinton foundation) or Victor Dadaleh (Panama Papers Reveal Canadian Victor Dahdaleh As Key Figure In International Bribery Scheme).

It just gets worse and worse, ugh OFF TOPIC and the UN agenda 2030 has dedicated their education plan to Alice Baily ! ( What the F#@#$@$ is going on here? ).

Anyways, with the antics of a potential contested convention I am sure The Onion will have some great commentary . . . . . oh wait Ha Ha: Hillary Clinton’s Top Financial Supporter Now Controls “The Onion” . . . .


ARGH!!!!

Why would they change? Sure they can change but can you give a valid reason why they would since she's three million votes ahead of Sanders? Is there a scenario where you see them just up and back Sanders? Other than the long shot e mail thing. Those delegates chose her. 545 out of 590 chose her. Only 45 chose Bernie. What would be the impetus for a mass exodus?

If these are the 3 "best" candidates we have , we are in for some shiite raining down from the skies
Sanders - 60s and 70s radical remnant
Clinton - known criminal and wall street scab
Trump - I really dont know how to describe..out there ?
Peace.

When ever someone's candidate is losing his supporters claim rigged or fraud. It's pathetic really.
I keep reminding people about how very serious something like that would be. I point out Watergate that unseated a president and that was just wire tapping not rigging votes.
As for actually rigging machines. That is the most ludicrous thing ever. Go around the country and fix voting machines???. Most are paper ballots that get scanned by an electronic reader when you put your ballot in.
They would have to fix every ballot.
Voter fraud where people go and vote as someone else does happen. That's the voter though not the candidate rigging an election. I think it would take a lot of cash and a lot of effort to gather enough fraudulent voters to actually sway a general election.
So just know that all these cries of rigged are the death throes of the Sanders campaign.

If you are parroting the 3 million vote meme out of ignorance of the below I forgive you, but if you already knew then shame on you.


primary races don’t just include voters going out and casting a ballot. Instead, many states hold caucuses in which a group of representatives vouch for their candidate. The candidate with the most representatives in the room wins in that district, and the candidate who wins the most districts is the winner of the state.

What happens in these cases is that individual votes are not gathered, therefore no votes go to the winning candidate.

Bernie Sanders has tended to win most caucusing states. Though Sanders may take more than 70 percent of the caucus vote, these numbers don’t translate to individual votes — they add nothing to the overall count. So, states with millions of Sanders supporters are not counted among the millions in competition with Clinton’s big numbers as a result of this system.
Hillary Is Not Ahead By 3 Million Votes And That’s Just Math


As for why they would switch a good reason would be because they want their party to win.

Neither Clinton nor Trump should be president, but IMO if the country has to crumble under one let it be him. Let the DNC lose they just may learn from their loss unlike the Republicans.

A secret service agent has written a tell-all book about the Clintons from the time they were in the White House in the 90's.

It is reported to be devastating.

No one has focused on Bernie in any real way either because he has been assumed to not be the nominee.

For example, his wife's financial mismanagement broke the college she was president of and she manages their finances because Bernie is financially incapable. The only reasons Bernie doesn't have a joint account with her is because he is financially illiterate and because then he would be rich like he claims not to be.

Bernie wrote strange rape articles in his pre-politics career.

He never held down any job prior to his career in politics, and he is more career than Trump which is easy to do but he is more career than most of the GOP field too. So he has no way to call himself anti-establishment in an anti-establishment year.

He may not be Democrat, but he has caucused with them and voted them all the time. So Independent is only a label he has worn so he didn't have to call himself socialist.

In short, Bernie has lots of negatives.

Not to mention all the violence that will absolutely continue if Bernie becomes the candidate.

Not to mention, every single argument that was applied to McCain about his age and lack of technology savvy could also be applied to Bernie too.

Can he survive a term? He is older than McCain.

What's his tech savvy? Remember the laughing at McCain's inability to type or understand texting.

Every single age argument that the media made applies to Bernie. Do you think a Trump campaign will even hesitate? Bernie is every bit to old white guy, moreso than Trump who is very media savvy.

I didn't say he didn't have jobs only that he never had a steady one with a regular paycheck.
