Senators Call Bernie A 'Loner' Because He Won't 'Hang Out With Lobbyists'



Is this supposed to be a bad thing?

Californians are registering to vote in breathtaking numbers not seen since the Reagan Revolution

http://www.mercurynews.com/politics-government/ci_29922565/california-voter-registration-soaring-june-7-primary-approaches

More than twice as many Californians registered this year than in the same four-month period in 2012, according to Political Data Inc., a Los Angeles County firm that tracks state voter trends. The new voters are trending young and Democratic -- two groups more inspired by Bernie Sanders than Donald Trump.

"There is no precedent for this in California since 1980 in terms of the overall surge in voter registration," said Paul Mitchell, the firm's vice president. "The motivation to register is as much to vote against somebody as it is to vote for somebody."

From January to April, more than 850,000 Californians joined voter rolls, while another 600,000 re-registered, most likely because they had moved or switched parties, according to figures collected by Mitchell. Then, in a development that dropped jaws among political professionals, nearly 200,000 more Californians registered through Facebook last Monday and Tuesday, when the company stuck a voter registration button on newsfeeds, linking to the state's online registration system.


Stand Strong Bernie supporters there is a reason the fever pitch for Bernie to drop out is swelling.

From Bernie's Carson Rally last week... Look at all those "BernieBros"



I have a hunch he is going to kill it with Latinos in California.... They are having unprecedented registration of new young latino voters in the Democratic side.

Trump is now leading Clinton by 0.2 on RCP polling average.... Sanders still +10.8 RCP average.

Time for her highness to cancel the coronation and bow out gracefully for the good of the Democratic Party and Progressivism.

If we nominate Clinton we will be handing the election to Trump on a Goldman Sachs platter.

Here is why the fever pitch for Bernie to give up keeps rising from Camp Weathervane...

http://politicaldata.com/and-the-surge-goes-on/





California is set to have a new registration spike approaching that of general elections. Over 2 million new registered voters with over a million between Dems and Others (mostly independents). Since independents can only vote in Democratic primary we can say that at least a million new Dems registered.

Also this is just from May 1st there is expected to be another massive surge this month of May as well.

For this primary season we have seen:


REG GROWTH
DEMOCRATIC 218%
REPUBLICAN 78%
NO PARTY / OTHER 74%
LATINO 123%
AGE 18-24 87%
AGE 25-30 188%
Comparing 2012 and 2016 registration from Jan 1 – May 1.

Sanders outpaces Clinton in fundraising for fourth straight month

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/may/20/sanders-tops-clinton-fundraising-fourth-month-row/

Mr. Sanders out-raised rival Hillary Clinton for the fourth month in a row. The Vermont senator took in $26.9 million in April, narrowly inching out Mrs. Clinton’s $26.4 million intake.

“Only 5 percent of Sanders’ total came from donors who have given the maximum $2,700 an individual may donate to a candidate,” the Sanders campaign said Friday in an press release. “Almost half of Hillary Clinton’s primary campaign committee money comes from maxed-out donors.”

Survey Says Most Democrats don't want Sanders to drop out, poll finds

http://theweek.com/speedreads/625526/most-democrats-dont-want-sanders-drop-poll-finds

Counting super delegates, Hillary Clinton is fewer than 100 delegates away from clinching the Democratic nomination — but her party isn't ready to see Bernie Sanders exit the race quite yet.

Some 70 percent of Democrats say that the "continuing campaign for the Democratic nomination" is not hurting their party, according to Gallup poll results released Friday.




And like that the Brock Sock puppets brains collectively exploded on here.

New Bernie Website detailing interesting factoids about the Revolution!

https://berniesanders.com/revolution/

Interesting to see 40% of his donations are from 40-64 year olds and 20% of his donations are from 65+

Also an average of 13 donations a minute and 94% of his donation haul is from online effort.

His campaign's top 3 contributor professions are students, teachers, and engineers!

I am one of those Engineers feeling the bern
