While Bernie has won about 46% of the delegates, he's only won about 42% of the popular vote so far.

This is already known, thanks for sharing! Clinton also defeated Obama in the popular VOTE during the Democratic primaries in 2008. Sanders has won NOTHING against Clinton.

Only if the "Uncommitted" vote in Michigan isn't counted in Obama's vote totals.

Sometimes fighting the goof fight is a lot of what matters, though.

Also, though, I would like to point out that Bernie Sanders is much more popular among younger voters than among older voters. Indeed, since young people are our future, I certainly expect the U.S. Democratic Party's platform to gradually become very similar to what Bernie Sanders (currently) wants it to be.

Of course the popular vote isn't counted in the same way in Caucus states which he has done quite well in.

Frightening! I wonder if it's the result of left-wing indoctrination at colleges.

Only the popular votes in 5 states weren't counted : Iowa Nevada Maine Washington Wyoming
Maine turnout was about 60k while Washington turnout was about 240k
So factoring these in Hillary still leads by about 2.25 million votes
