you need to deal with that fact

when all the primaries and caucus are over there is a good chance that neither candidate will have the needed delegates. There is a decent to strong probability they will decide the nomination because 50% of the delegates awarded from primaries and caucuses are NOT enough to win the nomination

It's propaganda pushed by the Clinton campaign and the MSM is playing along. The primary was front-loaded with states favorable to Clinton. The debates were pushed back to the Fall at the same time Clinton aggressively pursued early voting before most voters had a chance to know who the hell Bernie Sanders is. This primary was rigged from the get-go on behalf of the "inevitable," thoroughly compromised, and ultimately weaker candidate.

And the number of delegates needed also included the super delegates so it would skew the numbers of needed delegates if the delegate totals for the candidates was not given.

but not as insurmountable, especially when you consider the possibility of those superdelegate votes flipping the other way.

So it's hours and hours of the total campaign with superdelegates always on screen.

the entire MSM is terrified of Bernie winning
