Sanders the socialist is done but he and his WP followers keep crying.

Obama, the DNC, Wall Street and the democrat party elite decided long ago that Hillary Clinton will be their nominee but Sanders is like a bad rash; just won’t go away.

Sanders fights for life as Clinton wins another state, Obama turns screws

Bernie Sanders, still insisting he has a fighting chance to capture the Democratic presidential nomination, ratcheted up his campaign schedule Friday to hit all three Western states voting next week as he scrambles to recover from Hillary Clinton’s recent five-state sweep – while President Obama applies pressure from the outside on the Vermont senator’s underdog bid.

Overnight, Clinton was declared the winner of the last remaining unresolved primary from Tuesday's five contests, in Missouri. Sanders said he won’t seek a recount in the tight race.

But, speaking with the Associated Press, he maintained he can still close the delegate gap.
"I don't believe they have an insurmountable lead," Sanders said Thursday from Arizona, where he was campaigning. "Secretary Clinton has done phenomenally well in the Deep South and in Florida. That's where she has gotten the lion's share of votes. And I congratulate her for that. But we're out of the Deep South now."

Sanders is hoping to turn things around next Tuesday, when Arizona, Utah and Idaho vote in the Democratic contest. His whirlwind campaign schedule on Friday was taking him to all three states.

But after his hopes of notching a few more upset victories this week in the Midwest fizzled, the senator’s path to the nomination remains unclear.

Clinton now has a lead of more than 300 pledged delegates over Sanders from the primaries and caucuses: 1,147-830. When including superdelegates, or party officials who can back any candidate, Clinton has a much bigger lead -- 1,614-856.

Factoring both types of delegates, Sanders would need to win a whopping two-thirds of the remaining delegates to clinch the nomination before July’s convention. Clinton only would need to win one-third.

Even if Sanders focuses only on closing the pledged-delegate gap – in hopes that the pro-Clinton superdelegates might later budge – he faces a steep path. The wild card may still be how the FBI investigation into Clinton’s email practices resolves, and whether that happens before the convention.

Robert Jackson, professor of political science at Florida State University, said it would take an unexpected shift of events for Sanders to have a legitimate shot at the nomination this far into the process. “Barring some almost unforeseen event or eruption of new information we haven’t seen before, I believe the pathway for him to get the majority of delegates is very, very difficult and the window of opportunity is rapidly closing,” he said.

Meanwhile, Obama is getting more involved in trying to bring closure and unity to the Democratic primary process.

According to The New York Times, he told a group of donors last week that Sanders’ campaign was getting close to the end and the party will soon have to unite behind Clinton.
He reportedly did not make an explicit call for Sanders to drop out, but suggested Sanders’ prolonged presence in the race could help Republicans in the end.

Clinton’s campaign also is sounding a confident note about their chances as they look to the upcoming contests.

Clinton's campaign pointed to a recent memo by campaign manager Robby Mook, who suggested she has an "insurmountable lead" in the delegate count. The campaign noted its pledged delegate lead of more than 300 is nearly twice as large as any that then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama held over Clinton in the 2008 primary.

"And note Ohio, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada and Iowa are generally not considered Deep South," said Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon, referring to states won by the ex-secretary of state.

Sanders, speaking with the AP, called his loss in Ohio a "major disappointment," adding, "I thought we had a chance to win or come close in Ohio and we didn't." But he said that while "we know we've got a hill to climb," he was pleased his campaign was able to accumulate more delegates.

He predicted the upcoming calendar of races in several Western states, including Arizona and Washington, and April contests in Wisconsin, New York and Pennsylvania would offer him the chance to catch up.

"We think from now on out, we are having states that, everything being equal, we stand a chance to do well in. We think we have a path toward victory," he said, pointing to California's June primary. "We've got some big states coming up and we think if we can do well, if we go into the convention with delegates, we've got a shot at taking the nomination."

Get with it WP liberals, you candidate was long ago chosen for you. Your vote and opinion doesn’t matter.

Bernie Sanders rails against big money’s control of politicians (and the socialist wannabes believe him) but he is more than happy to take the big money donations:

Bernie Sanders: Prolific Democratic Party fundraiser

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN)Bernie Sanders complained on the campaign trail Friday that dialing for dollars "affects your entire being."

What he didn't mention: The Vermont senator and presidential candidate is a prolific fundraiser himself and has regularly benefited from the Democratic Party apparatus.

Surprise: Bernie Sanders is Taking Money From Billionaires
Katie Pavlich | Mar 15, 2016

Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has captured young, naive hearts everywhere by claiming to fight against the evil, millionaires and billionaires who are allegedly keeping the rest of us down. At campaign rallies and debates, Bernie boasts of the thousands of supporters sending just $27 to fund his campaign and slams rival Hillary Clinton for taking money from Wall Street.

When Sanders announced his run for the White House last year, he was introduced at his first rally by millionaires Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry's ice cream. They've been backing his campaign ever since and even named a new flavor after the candidate, "Bernies Yearning."

But according to a new report, the dessert duo are providing pennies compared to the other millionaires and billionaires Bernie is taking money from. That's right, Bernie is taking money from billionaires, the very same people he publicly and regularly vilifies as the number one problem in America.

While Bernie Sanders has pitched himself as the presidential candidate for the little guy -- tapping into the wallets of voters angry over Wall Street’s influence in politics -- a deeper dive shows Sanders has enlisted an arsenal of millionaire and billionaire backers who have backed his political career since his early Senate runs a decade ago.

That big-money support stands in sharp contrast to Sanders' calls for corporate fat-cats and the uber-wealthy to pay their “fair share” in taxes by closing loopholes and removing breaks that benefit the mega-rich.

Sanders may not have a Super PAC, but he certainly has big money backers.

He should have run as an Independent because he had to know there is no way the Democratic party would have supported him because he is a Socialist and they wanted Hillary. The political parties all play games. I saw Ron Paul on an interview and they asked him about Rule 40 that they put in place just to screw him out of getting delegates at the convention, now they want to repeal that law because they are worried how it could play out in the upcoming conventions. The people need to look at the positions of the candidates and then choose and if they do not give us a choice we want, by REFERENDUM (as Ross Perot said) we need to get them on state ballots and then proceed. It will not be an easy or painless process, but if people want to have a say in their government then they have to look at how it works.

Do you remember the debate where Cruz and Rubio went behind Trump's back and shook hands and indicated that they would form an alliance against him, they would ban together to undermine him? That kind of stuff goes on all the time.

Bernie's followers do not want him to give up, but he cannot continue his Presidential bid at this time, with the circumstances as they now are. There has been prophecy that there would NOT be a 2016 election, something will happen that will prevent that. I think we may be on the verge of a war with North Korea and or Russia.

Doesn't matter anyway. Obama, The DNC, the democrat party elites, Wall Street and the liberal media have decided for the left that they will only have the criminal/habitual liar to vote for in November.

Sanders is done. He never had a chance and the liberals just roll over do what they are told.

Why don't you go back and read that townhall link you posted and tell us who these Wall Street billionaires are. That article links to a Fox News link that only came up with a couple of names of people who have supported Sanders for real. (Fox News, far right wing. Dismissed!)

Open questions for anyone who can answer:

How many "Super Delegates" are pledged for Clinton?

How many "Super Delegates" are pledged for Sanders?

How many total delegates of both types are needed for the nomination?

And the big one, just exactly what is a "Super Delegate" and what chooses which candidate they vote for?

________________________________________________________________________

As of today, the democrat's "Super Delegates" stand at:

Total Super delegates available: (712)
Clinton to date: 467
Sanders to date: 26

Super Delegates are Democrat Party Governors, party elites, senior party operatives and major donors. They can all vote at the convention for anyone they please.

The democrat party put this system in place to make sure the the candidate the DNC decides who the nominee will be.

Thanks for the info. I was unaware of superdelegates. You have a good point there. Another data point that both parties are corporate tools bought and sold far in advance of the election.

Super delegates can change their mind right up until they cast their vote at the convention. Given that many are themselves pandering politicians, my guess is more than a few will be opportunistic enough to change their vote should Bernie's momentum continue to build. It might not be the sh!tshow the republican convention promises to be, but should still be interesting given current trajectories.

Given that many are themselves pandering politicians, my guess is more than a few will be opportunistic enough to change their vote should Bernie's momentum continue to build. It might not be the sh!tshow the republican convention promises to be, but should still be interesting given current trajectories.

Which they might just do with the margins of victory he's gotten the past few primaries.

Open questions for anyone who can answer:

How many "Super Delegates" are pledged for Clinton?

How many "Super Delegates" are pledged for Sanders?

How many total delegates of both types are needed for the nomination?

And the big one, just exactly what is a "Super Delegate" and what chooses which candidate they vote for?


There's this thing called Google

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superdelegate


https://www.google.com/search?q=democrat+super.delegate&ie=UTF-8&oe =UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari



Got them already, just wanted to see if others would get curious enough to find out and report back.

Bloomberg actually has one that show the elected and "super" delegates by candidate in each state.

So without the Super Delegate count she is only 250 or so ahead.

Many Super Delegates switched from her to Obama in 2008.

I thought that Hillary would continue to stretch the lead, but yesterday give Bernie some momentum. Wisconsin will be "YUGE" if he can win there.
