CNN: Bernie Sanders has won 19 of the last 25 voting states and is on a roll!

Wow, I am shocked Fredricka Whitfield was allowed to use this as a topic of discussion..

Then the wonderful Nomiki Konst hammered the point home that there is a path to victory and the supers are gonna switch!!

74. I'll give you a few good arguments...

1) She polls worse against Trump, lately there is zero edge on that.

2) She has secrets and may have committed crimes.

3) Clinton loses many more Sanders voters than the other way.

4) Her legislative accomplishments as senator were unimpressive.

5) Sanders, the “Amendment King” left a lasting and substantial legislative record.

6) Today’s thinkers and activists oppose her – The great raft of intellectuals, writers and activists deeply devoted to social justice, largely permanent outsiders uninterested in lobbying for a job in the administration, overwhelmingly favor Sanders.

7) Superdelegates are hardline Democrats. Their loyalty is to the
Democratic Party, which primarily is to keeping it viable, keeping it in charge, keeping
membership high, keeping donations coming in. This is why they will
side with Sanders at the convention.

If you exclude the territories (which I'm not sure why that distinction is being made), then he has won 13 of the last 25 states.

Incidentally, two of the states that he did not win, New York and Florida, had more voters than all 13 of the states he won in that period combined.

15. Too bad he started out so slow and had weak campaigning in early states

Especially in the South. Hillary got out to an early lead there and hasn't lost it yet.

She's won more states, more PDs, and more votes than Bernie. His early campaign was sluggish. There are a lot of reasons for that. Nobody took him seriously, the media ignored him as a crackpot, he was not focusing on PoC's and women's issues, an his ground game in those states wasn't strong enough.

Pity that. I wonder what the results would be if Bernie had come out of the gate stronger.

effectively hiding Bernie from the public, and giving all that free National Media to Trump and the Republicans.

DWS may be the single person most responsible for President Trump.

He was able to get his message across repeatedly through rallies and other events where he was able to repeat his talking points, unfiltered and unchallenged, much to the delight of the crowds who supported him.

Generally speaking, I think Hillary was stronger than Bernie in the debates. Bernie was at his best in other forums.

82. I disagree,

and so do most of the people who watched the debates.
A properly scheduled National Debate is worth Millions in FREE National Exposure to MILLIONS of of voters.
While the rallies were good, what was the max exposure?..20K?...
and THAT was mostly hidden by the Media. Name Recognition was BIG in the early Primaries.

I would have preferred about 3 debates BEFORE the Iowa Caucus.
It that had happened, it would be Hillary playing catch up now.

Hillary surrogate DWS really gave Hillary a helping hand by not scheduling debates, and may be the single most responsible person for President Trump.

....ALL that FREE National Exposure for Trump just to keep Bernie hidden from most Americans.

Maybe more debates would've been good for Bernie. I actually think things played out well for him in terms of being able to rally people to his message. His campaign did a good job of using social media and other methods of getting his message across.

I would point out that by the time of Super Tuesday there had been six debates and Hillary did very well on that day. There were another three in the lead-up to the NY and other east coast primaries and Hillary also did very well there.

That's why he lost. Bad decision on the part of his campaign. Hillary racked up huge wins in those states and Bernie couldn't make it up. If he had made more of a play in the south east, it would be a much closer contest today.

25. The numbers.

At this point 3,149 standard delegates have been awarded

Hillary has 1,716 and Bernie has 1,433. So Hillary enjoys a 283 delegate lead at this point.

While the reported super delegate count committed so far is Hillary 524 to Bernie's 40. Bernie's 40 out of 564 superd's is 7% of the 564 while Hillary's 524 is 93% of the 564 who have committed to date. Clearly a sham, and the superd's don't officially commit and get tallied until the convention and can and most likely will change.

Bernie is 283 delegates behind and can tie or surpass Hillary in standard pledged delegates before the convention and before she can secure enough standard delegates to win the nomination.

I would like to see caucuses done away with and replaced with a popular primary vote. Let everyone have a chance to participate and make it count.

I also want to see us aggressively pursue fair elections ... as has historically been the problem, voters in poor and minority areas have been plagued by voting irregularities and voting difficulties

I want a system where participation is encouraged and accessible to all .... the caucus process is extremely limiting and excludes 80+ % of voters.

I don't care who moans or who won a caucus .... it is an exceptionally unfair and exclusive practice and should be replaced .

I do not support any process that stifles or discourages the vote .... that includes voter suppression and irregularities that have largely plagued poor and/ or minority areas.

100. really simple

If everyone votes in the same standard method, with the same access to the polls, then the total popular vote would mean something. As long as the processes are different, like auto-registration/vote by mail, contrasted with a three step caucus, requiring travel and repeated attendance for hours, then cobbling the "vote totals" together and calling it a valid result will always be a problem.

It is called method error. You do not combine data collected by radically different methods in that manner. In a meta sense one could perhaps combine the weighted percentage outcomes with a big caveat for limited reliability, but you cannot combine the raw #s for a vote total. It just is not statistically valid.

27. Actually, Bernie wins caucuses and states with fewer people

which is why he is way behind in pledged delegates. He needs to beat Hillary by an average of nearly 2:1 in the remaining states to tie her in delegates.

37. Be aware that the statement in this OP is not true

 

Last 25 voting states

13 won by Sanders: WV, IN, RI, WY, WI, WA, HI, AK, UT, ID, MI, ME, NE

12 won by Clinton: PA, MD, DE, CT, NY, AZ, OH, NC, MO, IL, FL, MS

And two of the states won by Clinton (NY and FL) had more voters than all thirteen of the states won by Sanders combined.

40. The bottom line is that there are only 283 pledged delegates separating them at this point.

With 1,716 pledged delegates Hillary does not have enough to secure the nomination.

Bernie still can either tie or surpass Hillary in pledged delegates before the convention.

45. The actual numbers are real. I live in the real world.

Hillary has not secured the nomination. Based on the trends, she will have not have secured the nomination before the convention.. it is also not impossible that Bernie will tie or surpass Hillary in pledged (standard delegates) by the convention.

Takes only a little bit of time to look up the correct information. That's one of the best things about the digital age.

75. Delusional.........

Hillary will be the nominee, the rest is white noise.

The super delegates will NOT switch to the losing candidate. Let alone a candidate who they don't support in the first place.

Give the nomination to the loser of the primaries and really see a revolution take place within the Democratic party. Did any of you think that millions of Hillary supporters would agree with this????

Sheer lunacy.......

24 is how many states Hillary won.

89. Two of the states Hillary won had more voters than all 14 of Bernie's combined

 

Among the 14 that Bernie won are Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Maine, and Kansas. All the voters in all of those eight states added together do not add up to half the number of people who voted in Florida, which Hillary won handily.

94. sorry, you really can't compare a caucus to a primary that way.

two different models with two completely different turnouts. That said, one can win the popular vote and still lose the Presidency.

I live in FL and am unimpressed. Trump won here by pretty big margins too.

One hundred million to mideast leaders? How can she represent anyone in this country?




SHE CAN'T. SIMPLY.
