Its the percentages that count, not the actual number. California's black population is less than half of the national average.

Yeah...the DINO would be Bernie. Hillary has been a Democrat for decades. Sanders is a Dem in name only. Remember he admitted he is only running on the Dem ticket because he knows running as a Socialist won't get him a nomination. But oh yeah, he's the "honest" politican. LMAO.

Bernie would need 400 Super Ds in the Convention.

Bernie is a stubborn old man who has said he will stay in the primary race until the convention. I believe him. Plus, I think he is having fun campaigning.

if he raised the money to campaign, I would expect him to keep going.

Why? There is a growing chance that the party will throw Hillary under the bus. I think the party would like to see Bernie quit, Hillary indicted and push the McFeeley Biden into place. Think of all the gropes that old fool could get into his schedule as POTUS.

I, too, think Bernie and the Mrs. are having a blast campaigning and getting the message out that is so dear to Bernie's heart. I don't think he thought he would ever get this opportunity. I am happy for him.

2.3M out of 35M is a small amount.

The man has a lot of energy from what I've seen.

Hillary...well, she barks and coughs.

3 reasons:

1) He's very, very bad at math

2) He's highly delusional

3) He's stroking his ego being the darling of the far-left nutjobs
