Maybe, but either way, more pledged delegates is a win.  I don't think anyone will be up in arms about the person with the most pledged delegates getting the support of the supers

A curse upon New York - no New York sports franchise will win a title in 2016. For every person that likes this post I'll add a year to the curse.

Want to offer a particularly large #### you to the people who made tonight possible. We could've had Bernie ####### Sanders as our president. Enjoy president Trump.

Here's Bernie's speech from Oct. 12, 2011 on the Panama deal. It is unbelievable how time after time after time, he has been on the right side of issues.   Finally, Mr. President, let's talk abou

At her current 58% pace she would fall just short with pledged alone.

I think you're trying too hard to fit a satire piece about millenials into your current mood.  That should be in the "why I hate millenials" thread.

Uhhh. I think you're trying too hard to be offended. Read it again. The target of its satire is the NYT, not millennials.

It's OK to have fun and laugh sometimes.

I'm not sure why you think I'm offended.

Kos calls for Bernie to drop out.  Looking forward to NCC and crew labeling him a fake liberal. 

Actually what NCC would say is I disagree wholeheartedly with Kos and it Isn't the first time. He is very play it safe at times and tends to fret about things I find less than pressing. So not surprised to find him doing so again. So that's what I have to say can't speak for the crew.

I'm a boomer and I support Bernie. I don't ride a hoverboard. I don't Vine. I don't skip work to binge watch a show. I don't care what Lena Dunham has to say about anything. And I know more than a few millenials who would be pissed off to see themselves portrayed the way the NYT did.

 

NYT steady proving it's a propaganda arm of the establishment.

Bernie will be appearing live on The Young Turks which is a YouTube channel. He'll be on at 6. I'll be working as I am caught on my binge watching so I'm hoping some.of you will tune in as it were. Should be interesting.

Why would he drop out now when she could still be indicted? Probably never happen but it's still possible.

He's a better man than I am.  I'd be dropping this hammer during every speech, at every rally, and during any media appearance. 

I think it's going to cost him the nomination.

Honestly don't know how someone could read that and not realize it's satire. I mean c'mon:

Quote

Beckett Delaney agrees. Delaney lives in the Empire State Building, which his parents bought for him; he often invites fellow millennials, whom he meets on relationship apps, to his bedroom, so that they can kiss. (Occasionally, they copulate.)

I assumed they left out a word. With their overriding derision of all things Bernie it's hard to tell what's satire and what isn't. In fact most of the crap they've written about him reads.like a joke.

Current likely results from last night:

ArizonaClinton 46  Sanders 29

IdahoClinton 5  Sanders 18

Utah: Clinton 6  Sanders 27

 

That's Clinton 57, Sanders 74.

74/131 = 56.5%

 

What was the percentage Sanders needs to start winning by, again?

He exactly matched his demographic delegate target for the night from 538.

That keeps him right on pace to not accumulate enough delegates.

Yes, provided that he only matches his demographic delegate target from this point out.  Which I don't anticipate with WA/HI/AK, but could certainly be the case.

I agree there. I think the next truly interesting contest in terms of delegate targets will be Wisconsin. The upcoming slate will all be Sanders blowouts.

Hope you're right. He needs Washington to be a big win.

Yeah, Tulsi Gabbard and Kaniela Ing's endorsements may boost Hawaii pretty heavily and Washington might be a massive blowout for Sanders.

The people that vote on the left here tend to do so with the unions in mind.  Bernie has a growing, enthusiastic base here, but I think the unions are going to carry the state for Hillary.

Which is ridiculous.  One of the things I don't like about Bernie is how pro-union he is.

John King ran through the math the other night and Sanders would have to get like 65-70 percent margins IIRC and then swing the superdelegates over. Unfortunately i think NY is going to do him in.

I have seen others run the numbers and say he needs to win by 20 points on average to get enough. And the Super Delegates will vote for the popular vote winner just like they did before. The party can't afford the #### storm super Delegates overturning the popular vote would bring raining down on them.

Did you just go back to a certain point and time and delete every post?

I left a couple. If the post was a troll or a reply to a troll, I deleted. Sorry if I hit something legit.

Okay. I don't think I have the energy tonight to go back and repost all the links to what a deadbeat/mooch Sanders was so I guess I will take care of it tomorrow.

Sadly it's a lot of information, shocking he got to this point in the election cycle considering his moocher past.

Bernie Sanders for President

Scott -

What happened yesterday in Arizona should be considered a national disgrace. I got an email last night from a woman who waited five hours to vote in Arizona. Five hours. 

We don't know how many thousands of people didn't get to cast their ballots yesterday in Arizona because they couldn't afford to wait that long. Scenes on cable news last night showed hundreds of people in line at 11:30pm in Phoenix – more than four hours after polls closed. Voting should not be this difficult.

One reason it is so hard to vote in Arizona is because the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act. There were 70 percent fewer polling places this year than in 2012 in Phoenix's county. They wouldn't have been allowed to cut those polling places if the Voting Rights Act was still in tact.

These cuts meant that, in a county with more than 4 million residents, there were just 60 polling places. This is unacceptable, but it's also not an isolated incident.

We need to make it easier to vote, not more difficult. One way we can do that is by reaffirming our support for the Voting Rights Act, which, when I am president, I will fight to reinstate.

Add your name to say you support reinstating the Voting Rights Act so we can make voting easier for everybody, not more difficult.

Add your name »

We cannot continue to see democracy undermined in the United States of America. Enough is enough.

Make no mistake: the billionaire class does not want Americans to vote. Billions of dollars are being funneled into our elections in a form of legalized bribery, even as American voters — especially minority voters — are being discouraged from voting. It is no wonder that government no longer works for ordinary Americans.

Above all, we need to remember the price that was paid for the right to vote. The Voting Rights Act was one of the great victories of the civil rights movement. Now, as then, change comes when the people demand it — in the voting booth, and on the streets in peaceful demonstrations. We must remind ourselves of what’s been achieved in the past, and resolve to do equally great things in the future. Democracy is not a spectator sport.

It is my sincere hope that the states that vote in the coming weeks and months do better than what we saw yesterday in Arizona. Too much is at stake for our future.

Right now, what we can do is show your support by adding your name to say you want to reinstate the Voting Rights Act. Click here to add your name.

No one said a political revolution would be easy. The billionaire class doesn't want to see our movement win, and so we must do everything we can to show them that we have the power.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

Couldn't get elected dog catcher then in a 3 way wins a mayoral election by 10 votes. Launches his career as politician. Mind boggling and yet another American success story

I'll give him credit . Burlington was conservative and he changed everything

Seriously. Please stop.

What is wrong with this? 

Seriously? We are going to listen to people ##### about voting being too difficult when they can vote literally for a month via mail and opted not to?

To be fair, winning an election after a 3-way sounds like a pretty boss way to start a career.
