Newsflash: Southern and Western states are more populous and representative of the Democratic Party!

I see how some people are belittling the Southern primaries, but they fail to realize and/or accept two truisms:

First, Southern and Western states are more populous and diverse, a true reflection of the Democratic Party electorate.

and

Second, NO Democratic Party candidate--I don't care if it's Jesus H. Christ himself--can win ANY nomination without the support of a sizable portion of minority voters or women.

As a child of the American South, I resent the bigotry. I resent the arrogance.

I ask that we respect all Democratic voters, whether a supporter of Bernie or Hillary supporter

...or neither.

Where did you get that from? Nor is he a definite supporter of either candidate.

15. I'm not taking the advice of South Carolina Democrats. They haven't won a single statewide election.

 

South Carolina Democratic voters are political losers. They probably sabotage their best politicians for not being neoliberal enough.

They have elected exactly zero statewide Democrats. They have 6 Republicans in the U.S. House and Clyburn is the *only* Democratic Representative.

Their state legislature is either Super Majority or near-Super Majority Republican.

16. AH....

 

And neither have Democratic voters in West Virginia, Oklahoma and other Midwestern states that Bernie Sanders is projected to win. That doesn't mean that I'm writing off those Democratic voters in those states.

20. You missed my point. The argument is that those states will vote Republican in the GENERAL!

 

That doesn't mean that the Democratic voters in those states should be written off like what people are saying about the Democrats in other Red states in the American South and Midwest.

25. People said the same about Barack Obama in 2008 when he was winning these same Red states.

 

It's really of no consequence when we get to the GE.

It's going to be interesting to watch.

26. Again, the same happened to Obama in 2008 when he was winning Red states in the primaries.

 

Let's see what happens in Blue primary states. It'll be interesting...

28. Yes but southern and western state votes are totally meaningless in the presidential election

the only thing that counts are electoral votes.
