It may be news to you, but most people have known about super-delegates for decades.

So, there is so much complaint that the superdelegates are picking Hillary.

But if super delegates did not exist, Hillary would have already clinched?
(Without superdelegates, there would be 4051 delegates with 2026 needed to clinch and Clinton has 2184.)

you keep saying they are unfair, then what reasons do you have for them to support him? you liking him doesnt mean they have to

what, you want them to judge based on how big of a rally bernie can draw? politics isnt a popularity contest

in california, all he accomplished was out spending hillary, and he still lost the race, why would they support him?
Bernie, and it seems many of his supporters, are both delusional...and very bad at math. I can't stand Clinton (and don't like Trump) but for better or worse, they won the primaries. Time to grow up and deal with it.

Hillary , the bought off puppet, figure head who will do the special interests favors to propel this country into globalism , blurred borders, more debt, more lies , and shafting WE THE PEOPLE with promises, shady deals, cunningly masterful hidden schemes, fraudulent information, back room evil planning, and hidden agendas.

This is Hillary , her deviant deception is well skilled, plotting what Hillary will masterfully and creatively shape the minds of those who have been suckered into her practiced reasoning of half truths, complete lies, and made up with contempt for truth, character and the American people. The Great Deceiver.

My candidate? Simple, the same as its been since 2004: write in. Vote for a letter, if one doesn't actually support the candidate, is doing exactly what many complain about: contributing to a broken system.

Yep. I thought so.
Uh, probably because they polled the supers and they are still behind Clinton.

Lets go back to 2008. Hillary started out with a large lead of super delegates. How did that work out?

Dem voters prefer a criminal as their candidate.

I suspect Obama prefers a different criminal.

Yes, the superdupers can change their votes from the person they've known, loved, admired and supported since Eisenhower was in office over to the granola-snacking Sanders, whom they cannot stand and would sooner put hemlock in his green tea than even look at. Sure, that'll happen -- what could possibly on wrong?

No. The match is set, and not only will she easily jog into the nomination, she'll utterly destroy Deranged Donald in the general election. It's all over, folks, we have us a winner!

I suspect the crushing defeat of the Republicans at the presidential level will mirror the loss of the United States Senate, several governorships and shear off a large number of House seats. Gonna lower the boom on y'all and there's not thing one thing that the GOP or Sanders can do about it. The rules of engagement were known and understood by all for over a year.
