So Wisconsin destributes 48 delegates to Sanders and 38 to Clinton.

Seems fair.....not.

2. How much tin foil do you guys have left?

That's 44% of the avaialble delegates based on the statewide vote. This is a PRIMARY, not a caucus.

4. Percentages are percentages

I'm just happy Bernie did as well as he did.

He will make the delegates soon enough.

6. Hillary didn't get 44% of the vote Sherlock


She got 43.1 which is 37 delegates. Unless you use Hillary math.

5. It doesn't add up mathmatically


Eighty six delegates

Bernie won 56.6% which is 48.676

Hillary won 43.1% which is 37.066

I would like to know how they rounded Hillary's up to 38.

No conspiracy, just bad math skills by the DNC.

7. The delegates are awarded based on the congressional district level rather than the state level

 

You're assuming the vote for both candidates is at the same level across the state. While there are some delegates that awarded based on statewide vote proportion, most pledged delegates are awarded at the congressional district level. If Clinton outperformed in an area that has more delegates allotted, she could win more than her statewide number would indicate.

It's not bad math skills, it's a poor understanding of how delegates are awarded.

8. That seems fair. It was a +13.5% win.

10 more of 86 going to Sanders seems fair enough.

I expect this trend to continue and to accelerate.

9. 57% of the vote, 56% of the delegates

(numbers rounded off).

Seems fair to me?

10. The rules were in place before Sanders was even running

Nobody changed the rules to harm Sanders. Good grief.
