Related: About this forumShould Hillary drop out if she loses Wisconsin?
I heard on the news today that Hillary Clinton has lost five of the last six states to Bernie Sanders.
If she now loses Wisconsin, should she drop out of the race for the Democratic nomination?

Many Dem voters are concerned about her being investigated by the FBI.

(5,761 posts)Nope, no FBI investigation going on about an email server. No investigation going on about the Clinton Foundation. Nope, nothing, it's all Republicans fault. Sure.

(10,559 posts)She is the person who is 100% responsible for this scandal and it is being reported by reputable (not right wing) sources.

Low level officials are given exits without recrimination within the system.

As long as she's competitive, she should stay in. Being indicted removes her from that club.

(23,156 posts)did in AK, WA, and HI she should. But I sincerely doubt it will be that much of a Bernie blowout. Even if he only gets 60% of the vote, she'll still be ahead of him in the regular delegate count, and so of course she should not drop out at this point. She'd be a fool to, just as Bernie would have been a fool to have dropped out after Super Tuesday.
This isn't going to be finally decided until June 7th, folks. Get used to that idea.
(Unless Hillary is indicted, which I sort of doubt will happen, but ya never know.)

(4,187 posts)Were you arguing that Bernie should drop out after he lost eight straight states between Mississippi and Arizona? And would you be arguing that Bernie should drop out if he were further ahead of Hillary than Obama was ahead in 2008?
I suspect not. Therein lies the double standard.

(2,077 posts)as many Hillary supporters suggested, then Hillary should drop out after her disastrous results in the AK, WA, and HI caucuses.

(142 posts)When there's a mix of caucuses and primaries, "VOTE" totals are totally unrepresentative (kind of like those "Supers" .
Sadly (due to her playing fast and loose with laws pertaining to her Sec. of State stint) I think that "dropping out" will not ultimately be Hillary's decision. Why some Democrats insist on putting forward the candidate with the MOST negatives, the one who even Democrats ranks as the MOST dishonest, the one who is MOST disliked by the Dem base AND the vital Independents, well ...
Clinton is damaged goods (by her own actions), and if Dems end up nominating her then the chances of a scary Trump or Cruz Presidency improve greatly. Why is this so hard to understand for some? Who are these Superdelegates who would want to risk that? No friends of the working class Democrat base, that's for sure.

NOTE: IDEAS and POLICIES and NOT THE PERSONALITIES.
KingFlorez
(12,689 posts)The further ahead in the delegate count she gets, the more that Sanders people say she should drop out. Basically what you are want is for Sanders to be just given the nomination regardless of whether he not he actually wins it.
