Why arent't Bernie's yuuuuge rallies.....

Translating into votes? Any rational answers for this? He should have blown Hillary out of the water by now if all hus rally goers showed up to vote and yet he is behind by over 3 million votes. What gives?

1. They are. Bernie won both Indiana and West Virginia.

He started out with next-to-no name recognition and now is well known across the country.

Bernie's campaign has been amazingly successful.

And Bernie is a good manager.

adding seats to our Assembly and Senate - unlike other so-called 'liberal' States - and we elected a moderate Democrat as our governor.

After the disrespect shown by Sanders supporters against our beloved Senator Boxer, you think a socialist-disguised-as-a-Democrat-so-he-could-be-president; a man who can't inspire the African-American or Latino vote; a man who allows his followers to heckle one of our most beloved Democrats, will win from the battle-tested Democrat, Hillary Clinton?? In what universe?

64. A strong case could be made for Brown being the best governor in the country.

Of course, having a mostly cooperative legislature and a citizenry who prefers solving major problems instead of debating life's trivialities has also helped Brown. Still, he has a great record.

66. I would make that case. Absolutely. Our Legislature is pretty progressive, and have kept him in line

when he wanted to veer off a bit to the dark side. He and Kamala Harris, the candidate running for Senator Boxer's seat now, have clashed a couple of times. She turned out to be more progressive than him.

However, Governor Brown listens to his legislature and is open to compromise. He doesn't march off angrily when he doesn't get his way. He listens, debates, and comes to a compromise that will help the State. That's what a president should do as well - be willing to work with the U.S. Congress (to a point) to get things done for the country, rather than staunchly stick to "his principles".

48. Bull. The "new" voter registration has a lot to do with new laws of automatic registration AND

nowhere did an article break down the voter registrations that show they're all Sanders followers. If you're talking about "independents" registering to vote for Sanders, then that's a weak position because they unregistered themselves immediately thereafter - which is what Republicans do after they try and muck up the Democratic Party nomination process, and which is why they didn't succeed at stealing NV for Sanders as they had hoped - hence the shouting at Senator Boxer last Saturday. Missed that, did you?

I thought it was great and well deserved, Someone of her position talking down to people showed how sad the Hillary campaign has become. she didn't enjoy the medicine she earned. Tough cookies. As far as registrations and Bernie owning the youth vote, I noticed you chose to ignore that. So enjoy the bed you made. he tried to help but many Hillary supporters have said they do not even want our vote, and many of us are likely to oblige them. You are earning this loss , enjoy.

60. Senator Boxer is deeply loved in California. Those screamers at the Convention tried to shout her

down because she refuses to tow their line, and we Californians won't take kindly to that display of disrespect for one of the most liberal Senators, who stood with the CBC against G.W. Bush when they tried to ratify the (stolen) Ohio vote in 2004.

Heck, even poor but misguided Sanders-surrogate Nina Turner was 'booed' when she tried to gingerly ask that we unite. We can do without those bullies. Better they join the Tea Party where they'll be welcomed if they can't grow up and act like adults.

Oh, and my 21 YO grandson supports Bernie and is fully aware that some of Bernie's agenda means higher taxes, and thinks it would be totally worth it. Others of his friends are riled up about the TPP. Perhaps talking directly to your friends and telling them that you disagree with their own personal choices would be more useful to you.

55. Sanders supporters arent the only people she has to worry about not voting for her

 

so enjoy the bed you and her campaign have made. We tried to warn you. I'd say you better get busy selling the corporate queen to America, help is going to be a luxury.

37. Where is that great post where the guy listed the votes.

 

For instance, did you know that Bernie won Washington state by 40% (70.6 percent to 29.2 percent)? And did you also know that he got ZERO votes added for that?
There were a number of states like that. He won by Yuuuuuge margins, and got ZERO votes. I think it was because they were caucuses.





This clearly shows where the enthusiasm is.

74. Don't get what you're saying.

 

I gave the only example I could remember but there were other states where Bernie got a huge win and no votes were given. I think it was becasue they were caucus states and the people didn't vote. But I think they should do something besides giving him no votes.
In any case, those totals aren't the rock solid concrete people think they are. I mean, look at those crowds. Bernie has the mojo.

59. I've Been Seeing Here For The Longest Time That Bernie Is Behind By Over 3 Million Votes.....

Though there have been other primaries run since the first time 3 million was mentioned - the 3 million number never seems to change. I'm wondering if this is just a bogus talking point or if it is a valid number.

I've never seen proof of this 3 million number here nor learn how this is computed. Can anyone provide where these three million votes have come from (states?)?

And isn't there a difference in the fact that caucuses have fewer participants - yet Bernie has won his fair share of caucuses?

72. Here you go

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/democratic_vote_count.html

This doesn't include caucuses. I added up the caucuses on another thread and Bernie gets about an extra 200k lead from those, so it's really more like 2.9 million probably.

registration changed without their knowledge?

73. The biggest rallies are in states with big populations.

The rally attendance is really nothing compared to the population of those areas.

30,000 people in Seattle = less than 1% of WA voters and only 18% of people who actually voted for him in the WA caucus.
30,000 in NYC = only 1% of registered Dems in New York City
30,000 in Sacramento = 6% of registered Dem in Sacramento county

You just have to put it in perspective. The big rallies make for good photo ops, but they don't mean much in big cities were millions of people live.

77. Well, for one, independents

make up a larger share of the public, he does much, much better than she does with independents, and that group has largely been excluded from your party's voting process by design. It also seems that her corruption, center-right record, hawkish foreign policy and the chance that she can be indicted by the FBI are not problems with many in her party. If that's the case, and if Sanders is already going against the most powerful (and corrupt) Democratic family, with massive amounts of money, name recognition and establishment support, it's amazing he's gotten this far. He is trying to appeal to people that clearly don't share his values. He has because of his message and because of how horrible of a candidate she is. The fact that so many Democrats don't see the obvious says a lot about them and what their party has become. The general public supports him far more than Clinton and is more supportive of the most progressive candidate in the race than the Democratic Party. The left doesn't have a home with either of the two parties, and hasn't since HRC and her husband rose to power.

...Bernie's rallies look like fun! ...maybe a Trump rally... might be fun for the spectacle. That doesn't necessarily mean they'll get my vote.

90. Seems that's why most people go to those rallies for fun and to see what's up

Voting seems to be an after thought.

Those huge rallies, btw, cost big bucks, with the rental and security and clean-up and all.

That's where all the $27 donations go, besides Weaver's and Devine's retirement accounts.

84. These same type of occurances happened to Ron Paul, I still have not seen a President Ron Paul.

It is a libertarian type drive, the groups traveled from place to place cheering Ron Paul and then when the date came to vote in the primaries, the large crowds did not show up. He is not the first to have really large crowds and not get elected. His agenda does not attract enough of the people who voted.

88. To begin with you have to remember where Bernie started

out and where he is now. Most of the states he lost to her were lost by a very small margin. Iowa for instance was lost by 1 10th of a percent. And in many of them there were voting problems favoring Hillary that have been challenged by the Bernie campaign. Many of the ones he did win are by good sized margins.

What we are beginning to see in the conventions is another form of voting problems again favoring Hillary and not very legal as in NV.

89. "You guys are funny Just asked the question to gauge a response"

Are you going to admit to trolling us once again?
Your whole point of being here seems to be to disrupt and make fun of those silly liberals for participating in our Democracy, while seeing how many people supporting Hillary will post in agreement to your "Moderate" views.
