Well, there's this!

Clinton trounces Sanders in New York with boosts from downstate, where Jewish voters concentrate

Still, Clinton seemed to prevail in districts known to have large Jewish populations. In Kings County, or Brooklyn, Clinton led Sanders 60-40 and in New York County, or Manhattan, she led 66-34.

Clinton and Sanders clashed ahead of the New York primary on Israel, with Sanders challenging her in a debate in Brooklyn last week to show more even-handedness to the Palestinians and to criticize the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Clinton’s win boosted her lead of pledged convention delegates to 1,436 over Sanders’ 1,192 out of 2,383 needed to win. Clinton has the support of an additional 469 “superdelegates,” or top party officials, to Sanders’ 31.

In her victory speech, Clinton sounded a conciliatory note over what has become an increasingly bitter campaign.

“To all the people who supported Senator Sanders, I believe there is much more that unites us than divides us,” she said. Sanders is the first Jewish candidate to win major party state nominating contests.

Mahalo SunSeeker! I was dyin'! Hillary all Presidential and Class~

"In a speech to supporters, in which she declared that "victory is in sight" in the race for the nomination, Clinton reached out to those who had backed Sanders, saying, "I believe there is much more that unites us than divides us."

Hillary

What he was doing needed to be "doused".. way outta control. And, I'm sure it's not over yet.

But Thank you, New York, and ism!

Sanders and his campaign have repeatedly argued he has the best chance to beat Trump in November, yet 65 percent of exit poll respondents said they believe Clinton has the “better chance to defeat Trump”. He spent the last days before the vote raising questions about her qualifications and trustworthiness, yet 60 percent answered “yes” when asked, “Is Hillary Clinton honest and trustworthy?”

IOW, they Don't believe, sanders.. as well they shouldn't have.

Hillary

Oh Tweety.. all you have to do is go online.. I researched my state.. it was all different for

the Primary and I had never voted in a Presidential Primary before in Hawaii.

Hillaryspooky!

Of course he is.. let him whine... just shows what a bad president he would have made

if more people didn't want Hillary!

Dems for Hillary Big Surprise.. and if his supporters knew the rules they could have changed their registration to Dem and voted too. Why didn't he inform them? Why did he keep them "low information voters"?


Putain Démocratique ‎‎@goddamnedfrank
If you can’t even research your State’s primary rules and register on time maybe you shouldn’t call other people “low information voters.”

Hillaryspooky

#berniesocrass It makes me sick too, rbr.. especially the whole story behind it.

How he tried finagle his way to get a handshake with the Pope so he could say he had a "5 minute meeting" which in their conniving minds meant they could then use their logos on his image..

Wonder what Francis thinks of this ?

What sanders' has said about the Dems in the past.. and I'm thinking he hates

us even more now that we're beating his disingenuous a$$ all over the country.

Yes, I caught that he verified that, too..

WoW! that's good MBS.. thank you!

I’m serious. Ten minutes is not long to speak on a complex subject, and Sanders wasted almost a quarter of his speech thanking his hosts, name-checking popes, and giving an extensive quote from Centesimus Annus that he frankly would have been better off summarizing. The rest of it is Sanders’ usual stump speech, barely adapted to rather obviously bait Pope Francis into giving his blessing. (The campaign hoped for a meeting between the senator and the pontiff, a prospect that was summarily dismissed by the Vatican.) Sanders rattles off more or less the same laundry list of complaints he’s used at every rally in the past year, with only the thinnest nods at setting his perspective in a deeper moral or intellectual context. Again, ten minutes does not allow very much room for a deep dive, which is exactly why the Sanders campaign should have taken the hint and decided there was a schedule conflict that prevented him from speaking after all.

The whole Bernie-goes-to-Rome thing has been a shambles, to be honest. The campaign got Sanders a back-door invite which surprised and irritated the academy president, not to mention stepping on the roll-out of Amoris Laetitia, the Pope’s new teaching on the family. Then they did it again, taking a private jet to Rome to speak on the idolatry of money in the middle of a make-it-or-break-it primary in New York, and arriving in Rome on a day when the Vatican would much rather be talking about Francis’ meeting with Patriarch Bartholomew in Lesbos about the European refugee crisis

I'm glad the truth got out.. I was concerned it wouldn't.. with all the BS flying around.
