1. I think it's important to see how much support there is for Sanders nationwide.

We're not just voting for Bernie, we're voting for his ideas.

2. Yes, we are voting the issues and there's lots of support nationwide for Bernie's positions.

But the important thing to remember is that the primaries were frontload with Southern states voting first, which favored Hillary. Like Grayson says, now the Pacific and Northwest states will vote & those will be game changers.

I don't want anyone to lose faith, it ain't over yet.

CA = 545 delegates June 7th

I live in the NW and to call it now is basically silencing our voice.

Nothing can be called now, nothing....this race is NOT over. Despite their best efforts to marginalize, censor & the Bernie black-out, he's still going strong, even in states he doesn't win. The frontloading of the primaries gave Hillary a boost, just like minimizing the debates.

This is far from over.

5. All of we Bernie supporters feel that way. Bernie is our FDR, and is direly needed.

I've never felt that way about any candidate, and frankly was well on my way to being cynical and disenfranchised myself, and was always very politically minded. Bernie has renewed my faith, he's the real deal, always has been. He really has awakened a political revolution in this country, #ItsTheCorruptionStupid like Carville used to say about the economy.

I remain hopeful that we will get our FDR.

shift. Please listen to Grayson, he knows what he's talking about. CA alone has 545 delegates & Bernie is doing well there. None of his losses were big, even in the Southern states where he was not expected to do so well.

There is nothing to be dismal about, things are going to turn around & all of this has been one big orchestration to make it look the way it looks, which is quite deceiving.
