Here's how it works: After winning Indiana, Sanders has 1,399 pledged delegates and superdelegates to his name, according to the Associated Press' count. That means he needs 984 more to reach the threshold of 2,383 needed to win.
The remaining contests, however — Guam, West Virginia, Kentucky, Oregon, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the District of Columbia — only have 933 pledged delegates to offer.
I like Bernie as a person. I disagree with a lot of his policies, but he did get screwed and that ain't right.
But you have to admire a man that age that stands up for what he believes in even though it's a nigh on impossible fight.
I shudder inside at the thought of her holding office and I generally try to go with my gut.
Most of the mainstream media have, for the past seven years, spoken of Hillary Clinton as the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee.
Any narrative outside of this was ignored or attacked until this pesky, independent and un-owned candidate named Bernie Sanders reminded us that the American people might have something to say about who the next president is. And the people started turning out in great numbers to tell the Democratic Party that they want more out of them, that they want a strong alternative to business as usual.
And this movement was met with condescension. The anointers of Hillary told us that Bernie Sanders’s ideas were unrealistic, pie in the sky fantasies and continued to ignore the massive grassroots movement that was happening.
Establishment figures lambasted Bernie supporters as sexist and racist and uninformed, or just college girls wanting to meet boys. Soon, after Bernie started winning primaries and caucuses, our friends in the media told us that it was mathematically impossible for Bernie to secure the nomination even though the same was true of his opponent and only 300 delegates separated the two candidates.
Then after the disparities between New York exit polls and the final vote count we were told that exit polls are unreliable even as the media continues to use exit polls daily to mold public opinion.

Isnt it that the Super-Delegates are not "bound" ? I seem to recall that as a fact. Victories for Sanders from here on out may sway enough of them...who knows ?
