Only one candidate has more votes than Trump.

Hillary will go into convention with a huge delegate lead, huge popular vote lead, and more votes than Donald Trump.

If Bernie cant even get more votes than Trump now, it would be party suicide to nominate him, and it would be a downticket disaster trying to defend him. Trying to convince the "establishment" to back a candidate who would be handily defeated is not going to happen either. This primary was effectively over on Super Tuesday, and in 72 hours it will be the icing on the cake.

Bernie should then channel his movement to help electing downticket Dems, particularly in Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina.

1. ...and a huge cart full of baggage.

Her road to the GE will make the primaries look like a Sunday school picnic.

2. LOL. Have you seen the Republican frontrunner?

 

He's an orange white supremacist who will get shellacked at debates.

You really think she's going to get a free ride, don't you?

9. Did you research the exit polls vs the vote count... No! Did you research the global understanding

of exit polls. No! Your willful ignorance is destroying our democracy.. thanks for that

11. Did you research 'sample bias' and figure out why exit polls are so unreliable?

 

Statistics 101: exit polling not nearly as reliable as national polling.

13. We are studying different books then... exit polls are generally globally off by less than 2%.. in

our elections in the US we have been off by an average of 8% in favor of the Repugs... now Hillary is getting the same boost...

16. I believe you are quite wrong on that... I think we have been propagandize to believe that here in

msm bubble. Globally exit polls are the most reliable of predictors...like I said less than 2% off... but there is an exception to that rule...US ! We have been of on average of 8%.. to the repugs... now hillary is showing the same ... research it.. don't just stick your head in the sand... this is our democracy we are talking about

7. Such bullshit.

HRC is so damaged, in so many ways, to so many voters, yet you insist that the Dems will cakewalk to the WH with her carrying the banner.
The party establishment is delusional. But then the Dems have always been brilliant at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. It's what they do.

10. If Bernie can't defeat such a "damaged" opponent ...

... he'd never be able to defeat a well funded GOP candidate either. Considering Bernie's performance, when you degenerate Hillary, you're not doing Bernie any favors either.

Hillary will be our nominee. Time to wake up and smell the coffee.

12. Exactly my point...

 

It would be one thing if Hillary was winning but Bernie was in 2nd. But he's not....he's in 3rd.

15. She may well be.


But the voters in our household, and most of our neighbors, will NEVER voter for her--let the chips fall where they may. The days of holding my nose and voting for the less sleazy candidate are over.

17. Hillary had better pray that it's a buffoon like Trump.

Not that she's a shoo-in to win the GE anyway.

18. Hillary will lock this thing up Tuesday. Bernie will then have

to do some serious soul searching before asking for further donations.
