District five in Fairbanks just went 100% for Bernie

Four and five are the big Fairbanks districts. Hillary didn't get to the fifteen percent threshold to remain viable. I peeked in district four and it looked similar.

12. But but, what about the math?

 

I thought that we should start sticking forks into Bernie? Because of numbers or something? He can't win?

Oh, and if you still vote for Sanders, you are overprivileged (not in a good way, like Clinton's hedgefund-son-in-law and his wife, but in a bad way, like someone refusing to vote for Clinton is spite of her clearly stated ovaries; did I mention she is a woman?). So apparently, all of Fairbank Five is overprivileged.

There is no need to do that. And it's not helping the mood here at DU at all.

Thank you for saying that.
The atmosphere has been toxic because of a few mean people on both sides. We need to be as graceful in winning as we are in losing.

Edited to add: Betty Karlson, you're not one of those "mean" people I'm referring to. But if you need to gloat, perhaps do it "at home" in the Bernie group. Just a suggestion.

even if you didn't mean me, I was happy to stand corrected. As a result of prolongued illness, I have been very terse lately. Bad grace must have slipt into my disposition along with the fevers.

Nor do we have relatives willing to do it in support of the continuation of their lavish lifestyle.

9. Amy candidate who doesn't get fifteen percent

In a given district is considered non - viable. The candidate is removed from consideration, and their supporters either leave or caucus with their second choice candidate. Then everyone is counted again until all remaining candidates have at least fifteen percent, then delegates are apportioned. In this case Bernie swept it in the first round.

I just heard district four was split 16 delegates for Bernie and 3 for Hillary.

21. Good job, Fairbanks.

He did outstanding in Anchorage, too. I haven't seen that any of Alaska's districts went for Hillary. My district's count was 243 for Bernie, 109 for Hillary - or 12 state delegates for Bernie, six for Hillary. That's been one of the better results I've seen for her - still 2 to 1.

40. They could flip this year.

 


Alaska percentage that voted democratic in the presidential races:

2000: 28%
2004: 36%
2008: 38%
2012: 41%

There's clearly no love for Hillary there, but looking at the trend, the crap they have to pick from for republicans, and the enthusiasm for Bernie - if he's the nominee, we might win their vote. It's a long shot, but we've seen far bigger upsets this year.
