DNC rules are stacked against Bernie Sanders.

Bernie Sanders spanks Hillary 60% to 38%. Yet DNC awards delegates from NH as follows:
  • Hillary - 15
  • Sanders - 13
Democrats should be outraged at how this primary is being handed to Hillary Clinton.

What they are counting is the "super" delegates. Yes, this is a corrupt set up but these delegates are not a sure thing.

If Sanders continues to thump Hillary they are not going to stay with her as they know if they do they have already lost the election.

You are totally wrong. The 6 super delegates can choose whoever they want. These rules weren't made for this election cycle. They have been there for a long time.

This is correct. In the NH primary, Sanders won 13 delegates, Clinton won 9. The 6 superdelegates from the state indicated that they will be casting their votes for Clinton in an AP survey taken in November, but that can change and probably will given Bernie's victory in New Hampshire.

Thanks OP for the link it made my day. On a side note Supreme tallied more votes {250} then Santorum [193} and Huckabee {207}. By humiliating those 2 {R} retread losers the DNC should consider giving Supreme a delegate

I hadn't seen that. Thanks....I can't believe he hasn't been crowing about this all over Facebook. He is my #2 pick.

I think we Trump fans, as awful as it might be, have to root for Hillary now. If she defeats Sanders I think Trump may get some of his voters. Even Trump says he and Sanders agree that the US is getting ripped off on trade but Trump says Sanders won't know how to fix it but he Trump can. Also, if the Sanders fans thinks she cheated twice, they won't go to Clinton.

The actual delegate total is 15-9 in favor of Sanders. There are 8 super delegates, 6 of made their preference of Clinton known, the other 2 haven't stated anything as of yet. However, the Super Delegates can change, the 15-9 Sanders advantage of the delegates tied to the Primary is set in stone.

This is one more reason why the American people are fed up with the system and not voting for establishment candidates.
