Anybody notice that the team that once had a 50 point lead now refers to a tie as a "win"?

2. I don't recall Sanders ever having a 50-point lead, but, yeah, it's what they do.

 

And they scream "cheaters" every time they underperform.

12. are you proud of the fact that Bernie won 56-43 but ended up with less delegates?

 

How is that democratic?

22. So When Bernie WINS Outright Or Ties In New York... What Is Hillary Going To Call That?

As Hillary stands resolute with The BIG BANKS! #ShesWithWallStreet



If Hillary cared about the General Election, she would SUSPEND HER CAMPAIGN!

25. No clue.

 

What would you like her to call it?

One thing we know with great certainty, if HRC wins NY, the Sanders campaign will start screaming about cheating. It happens every time.

3. Not even a tie

Bernie won Wyoming by 56-44%-- and that's including Team Weathervane's ballot stuffing in Cheyenne.

14. it is the system - no, not proud, but that is the system he signed on to when he

submitted his campaign paperwork.

He wanted to run as a Democrat - he and his supporters should accept the rules instead of continually complaining.

They were the rules PRIOR to either of their campaign stated. They were not bent to support either candidate.

20. Similarly, Illinois would have to be a tie rather than a Clinton win.

According to Green Papers, they each got 78 delegates, even though Hillary was declared the winner by 1.8 points in the popular vote.

26. Not the point. If you're going to say that a state is "tied" because they got the same # of delegates

then it applies to both Wyoming and Illinois.

In each case, one candidate won the state in popular vote, but both candidates tied in delegates.

They will downplay Bernie's wins any way that they can.

8. Makes mathematical sense if you're getting the same or nearly the same number of delegates.

The delegate lead is not being cut.

It's really the number delegates gained not the "wins".

If someone is ahead by 200 delegates and both get 7 delegates in a small state, the one in the lead is still 200 delegates ahead and closer to the finish line.

10. I remember when the team that's losing referred to a win as a "virtual tie".

15. .



I see in one race a twelve pint margin of victory being called a win, due to some what musr be bizzare methods of calculating state delegates, the 12 point victory ends in a delegate tie, but it's a decisive win and a delegate tie, both those statements are true, but are being conflated as meaning the same thing.

23. I love that delegates went 7-7, despite the vote totals...

Reinforces the fact that the Weaver and Devine don't know how to run a campaign.
