The Nation: "Bernie Sanders Keeps Winning—and Pundits Don’t Like It"

link to this AWESOME little report; excerpt:

While the political and media elites keep angling for an opening to declare that the race for the Democratic presidential nomination is finished—so they can concentrate on nothing other than their obsession with Donald Trump’s Republican circus—Bernie Sanders keeps complicating things.

By winning.

The senator from Vermont, who began his race against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton with single-digit poll numbers, and a general assumption that a democratic socialist would never be a competitive candidate, has won eight state primaries and caucuses so far. ... In Maine, where Democrats lined up for hours to vote in packed caucuses, Sanders won 64 percent of the vote.

“{We} have now won by wide margins in states from New England to the Rocky Mountains and from the Midwest to the Great Plains,” Sanders declared on Sunday night.... Sanders is making this a real race. He is not merely attracting large crowds to rallies, getting unprecedented numbers of small donors to write checks, and battering billionaires. He is winning by wide margins in unexpected states such as Kansas (where the senator took 67 percent of the vote on Saturday) and Nebraska (where he beat Clinton by almost 10 points on the same day).... But Sunday belonged to Sanders. In Maine, where Democrats lined up for hours to vote in packed caucuses, it was Sanders who won 64 percent, to 36 for Clinton. There are plenty of primaries and caucuses to come. Clinton will score wins, as will Sanders. It’s a real race, and it won’t be finished for a good long while.

“The pundits might not like it,” Sanders explained on Sunday night, “but the people are making history.”

5. New Hillary Campaign slogan

I said this in a previous post discussing the intended chaos at the caucus, but I think it would make better campaign slogan. "If you can't beat 'em, Cheat 'em!"

8. Clinton Campaign Loves Shallow Pundits

 

Just another indicator of whats wrong with this country. 82% of Republicans think we are headed in the wrong direction. Yes much is racism towards Obama. But a lot of it is accepting the reality that the economic inequality gap is REAL. Clinton will never be seen as a populist.

11. "but the people are making history" That's correct.

 

And it is what his revolution is all about. Getting all of us involved, having our voices heard, and voting!

Go Bernie Go!

Super delegates do not count until the convention. And we ARE taking this to the convention.
