1. Hillary is still winning if you exclude superdelegates

 

- Hillary is leading in pledged delegates
- Hillary is leading in total votes
- Hillary is leading in states won.


Bernie isn't losing because of superdelegates. Bernie is losing because Hillary has more voters.

5. At least you got it

That's the problem

They are purchased

Hillary is the one purchasing them

And I wouldn't be proud of the fact that she's bought them.

7. You mean like

Howard Dean who will not vote for Bernie even though his state overwhelming voted for Bernie
or
Jim McDermott who will not vote for Bernie even though Washington State voted for Bernie.

That kind of overriding the will of the people thing?

6. They are the end of democracy. Who gave them a right to

vote in our party overturning our votes? NO ONE elected them.
