Confession is good for the soul only if accompanied by repentance.

I said I would stop watching MSNBC after this election, but I watch it very little anyway. So, I guess that's not much of a stand.

There was not 20K at the Irvine rally. I was there, and I know that amphitheatre. It doesn't even hold that many when it's completely full. No more than 7 or 8,000, which is still mighty impressive, especially in conservative Orange County.

I suppose some people would call that part of an active suppression of voting, since the aim is explicitly stated to be ensuring lower turnout.

What would you call it, brainiac?

7. Why would MSNBC or any other network feel the NEED to announce the results before voting ends?

 

That just seems strange to me. Doing it for the "scoop" isn't valid in my opinion because they'll be describing and event that hasn't even happened yet since voting is still taking place. I think that makes the word "scoop" moot. How can you scoop something before it's even happened?

12. They don't announce results before voting ends

 

They will announce the NJ votes, though, before the CA voting ends because of the time difference. The argument here is that those results might depress turnout for the last few hours in CA but that seems like a stretch.

62. Ratings: which ever network promises to announce first gets the viewers

and early announcements have historically had an effect on West Coast races - in 1976 Carter conceded before the West Coast polls closed, and while it may not have swayed the presidency it did make some voters stay home.

140. Yeah, senior moment

I was thinking about Carter today, and how he was touted as not being a Washington insider, and how he was a ray of hope after the Nixon/Ford years.

1980 was the only time I didn't vote for the Democratic presidential nominee, because Carter had conceded before I left work. Voted for John Anderson instead (after all, he did a whistle-stop tour of the Peninsula, which gets points for style).

If they are passionate about voting for Bernie Sanders in the morning, they ought to still be passionate about voting for Bernie Sanders in the late afternoon, regardless of what happens in New Jersey.

However, the weather is sometimes bad.

Similarly, one sometimes finds out the results of other contests before one gets to vote.

That's life.

A person can still vote even if they weather is bad and a person can still vote even if they know what happened in NJ.

MSNBC never said "We'll SUPPRESS VOTING to help CLINTON on June 7th"

But you put in quotes, which means it's actually a quoted statement from someone.

Except it isn't.

It isn't even an implication. The question was asked and the response was it would depress turnout for BOTH candidates. And never was "to help Clinton" said by anyone.

In other news...

From the Sanders camp today -> "Bernie has dropped out of the race and pledged support to Clinton".

So when Bernie loses California, it will be because the corporate, in-the-bag-for-Hillary media announced the results in New Jersey.

143. What the fuck are you talking about? YOU can't wait for three hours and prevent a real world

 

effect in voting? I mean, we already have a twisted system that favors a few states over otehrs when choosing nominees, but NNNNOOOOOO, we also want to continue to muck up in CALIFORNIA elections? Look, if it had zero effect on my local issues, I would not care. But this VERY REAL EFFECT, might cost workers a very real rise in the minimum wage. You might not care, but 50 cents, for people making minimum, is very important.

You might not care, but for some of us this is fucking personal, and yes, you continue to muck up my elections.

move the local elections to a different time? As far as the 50 cents goes I am all about that, shoot it should be more. I say $5 more would be more like it.

The solution is one you do not like, because all you care is about yourself.

And in edit. You realize this bandwagon effects also affects the GE? By your logic the pacific time zone, let alone AK and HI, should probably not vote in the general election. Yup, that is the ticket

same problem... so should we just not vote? I suspect that would be the preferred end. You were told the problem, the solution by expects, and you could give two shits about it. So should we cancel the presidential election in the PST zone, as well as AK and HI where the effect is actually worst. You see here is the problem. You are showing why we are not a mature democracy. ME, I, I don't give a fuck about the rest of the country. That is what you are doing. I wish our communications technology went back to mules, and horses, when people did not know the results for literally MONTHS! Did I mention the country did not go to hell? Apparently 3 hours, let alone the suggested number of 12, again by experts, is too much for you.

And you now cannot say you are not aware of the effect. It has been explained to you ten ways to Sunday. So at this point I must assume this is willful and not mature, and actual hate of democracy, with a small d. So spare me when you speak of GOTV and party activism. I will be the one in the corner laughing, not with you, at you.

152. Its been fun, but its over.

I have been nice, you have not. I offered what seem like reasonable solutions to the problem you are having now with the primaries, I realize it does not change the GE and I agree with that. I have agreed with you from the start that it is a valid concern and one that I share with you. I also have voiced my support for the min wage and said it should be more. In seriousness you have said I am the enemy of democracy, have misstated my positions and given me positions I never taken. I make it a point to never put anyone on ignore but you are making that a hard thing to not do right now. I want to thank you for helping to educate me on something I never really thought about before. But, my patience is at an end. I hope you can figure out who your real adversary is and learn when you are discussing with people that share some of your concerns and when you are not.

A lot of people will be discouraged and will stay home for the remaining races. This is the power play. There is a reason why a lot of HRC supporters are pushing this meme so hard.

yes it will hurt unity, since most people are not aware of the long history of this. So it is the new-old outrage. But read this thread, You will get the same from the party. and to be fair, she told them to stop using supers. They did not listen. They will do whatever they want to do. My only thing is to write a story... with these facts, including that old PI article, and beg people to go vote... regardless of what the media does. It might be 10 or 20, or a 100 or whatever that I reach, but that might make a drop in the statistical bucket difference, and enough to save some of those progressive down ballot initiatives.

but seriously, we are pretty much into I got mine even with elections.

163. This East Coaster

recognizes you have won this argument easily over a hundred replies ago. The POTUS GE is the most deadly of course because all the low information voters and not so thrilling choices fall like autumn leaves in a wind. There goes the state races and the propositions because the winning side is enthused. In a primary enthusiasm or grudging anger may be offsetting with a different subclass of voters but I presume the effect will still be very real. As for reporting news, the conduct of our balloting versus the speed of communications has created an extremely bad election "weather" effect. Different or mistaken reactions to current news may influence the vote, mainly repressing, creating a very destructive overall effect out West. Democrats count too heavily on POTUS years for downticket races as it is and that is exactly when this happens.

The MSM knows what it is doing, finally releasing information in as destructive a way as possible to scoop up the money in prime time. They have been traitors before and Germany knows from sad experience how to recognize dereliction of civic duty.

Yeah and the long deceased, never fought for Fairness Doctrine, a scrap of regulation of endless corporate propaganda. And the skewed or ignored exit polls and the idiotic post mortems and Democratic breast beating. I will not be listening to any of it on election night. Not one second or screen shot.

136. Hillary has 1771 pledged delegates. She needs 255 to clinch the majority of pledged delegates.

A majority of the 4051 pledged delegates allocated is 2026 delegates.

All she needs is 40% in three primaries.

25 of 60 delegates in Puerto Rico
51 of 126 delegates in New Jersey
190 of 475 delegates in California

That's 266 pledged delegates. 11 more than she needs.

she could get

ZERO delegates in the Virgin Islands
ZERO delegates in Montana
ZERO delegates in New Mexico
ZERO delegates in North Dakota
ZERO delegates in South Dakota
ZERO delegates in the District of Columbia


EVERY TIME Bernie gets less than 67% of the delegates in a contest going forward, HE LOSES that contest. Why? Because it is not a winner take all, because Hillary gains delegates as well, because people WANT TO vote for Hillary--more than want to vote for Bernie.

The Super Delegates will not be persuaded to Bernie.
