Is Bernie done, done if he loses OR tonight

OR has long been touted as his strongest state out of the remaining. Do you think he will bow out if he loses OR. Even someone as idiotic as Cruz knew when it was time to exit, stage right

14. Since his supporters didn't register as Democrats

he is poised to lose big in Oregon. 76% of automatically "declined to state" registrants did not change their registration to Democrat. Oops.

9. "Momentum" is a meaningless term, especially this year.

He ripped of a nice win streak and promptly got spanked in NY for example. The over riding factor in whether Bernie wins or loses is the demographics of the state and type of primary it is. That is it. Winning Oregon says nothing about the primaries that come after it.

6. No. Hillary will not have enough pledged delegates to capture the nomination before the convention

 

It will be up to the free agent super delegates to decide the who will be the Democratic nominee.

They are not pledged and required to vote for Hillary or Bernie.

And over 150 super delegates have not endorsed Hillary or Bernie for the nomination.

At the 2008 convention over 200 super delegates who endorsed Hillary abandoned her and voted for Barack Obama.

12. And the reason the SDs switched to Obama in 2008?

because Hillary had conceded and released her delegates. Because the SDs were always going to vote for the candidate with the most pledged delegates.

If 2008 is the model, then Hillary will be the nominee first vote.

15. Because Obama was ahead in

 

pledged delegates (although it was MUCH closer than Bernie is right now) - they didn't overturn the will of the voters which is what you're proposing.

10. Bernie needs to pivot to a message of unification soon. Normally I would be against that,

as a true supporter of his I want him elected and his policies to become the norm and would want him to never say die, but the BoB problem is huge and he will address it, has to.

Problem is he knows that many of his supporters are confused when it comes to what to do if he loses.

13. Why quit now?

Sorry it's inconvenient for your candidate to have to pretend she cares about working class issues for a few more weeks.

16. Pretty sure I heard him say a long time ago he would stay in and let Cali vote.



I'm guessing you heard that too.
