Huff Post Calls CT for Bernie?

According to the Huffington Post, Bernie won CT. This does not seem right to me based on the map, but they seem to think he won.

MSNBC moves CT from too EARLY to call to too CLOSE to call

I think that is good news for Bernie, since the exit poll favored Hillary. But based on where the outstanding votes are, I am not terribly optimistic.

FWIW, Bernie just took the lead on CNN's prediction marketplace for CT

Up to 58% odds of winning, from 30% 15 minutes ago. Does anyone know how good of a predictor this is?

Take this with a HUGE grain of salt, but possible good news in CT



It comes from a Twitter user named JamesByrd, who has a CNN logo but seems to have too few followers to actually be from CNN. https://twitter.com/JamesByrde

Any exit poll tidbits yet?

It's 5 pm. Isn't this the time when they share little hints from the exit polls?

My dad and his girlfriend (previously undecided) voted for Bernie today in PA!

A couple weeks ago when they visited they were both undecided, but my dad just responded to my text and said they both voted for Bernie. Hopefully more undecideds will do the same. The fact that Bernie is considered to have almost no chance of being the nominee at this point might actually help him. People whose hearts are with Bernie but heads are with Hillary (I met a lot of people like that when I canvassed for Bernie in New York) may feel freer now to follow their heart since they don't think he has much chance to win. That may have been part of what happened in Michigan as well.

Some (hopefully balanced) thoughts on Hillary Clinton, from a Bernie supporter

Yesterday, I proudly cast my vote for Bernie Sanders in the New York primary. I remain committed to supporting him until the primaries are over and everyone has had the chance to vote.

That said, I acknowledge that there is a very high chance that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee. So as I come to terms with that, I am going to lay out how I feel about her, why she wasn’t my first choice now or in 2008, and why I won’t have trouble voting for her in November.

I will start with the negatives and then do the positives:

Sanders to "step back" after big Clinton win

A senior strategist for Democrat Bernie Sanders says the campaign will "take a step back and then decide publicly what his intentions are."

But strategist Tad Devine also says Sanders is still making a contribution by "bringing independents and young people into the process."

I'm not sure exactly what this means. He still has events scheduled for tomorrow in PA, so if he doesn't cancel them I assume he is still in.

As a New York resident, I'm sorry

Sorry we couldn't do better for Bernie. I really didn't want New York to be his Waterloo.

It was great to feel like we actually mattered in the presidential election, which is rare for New York. I really hope people in California get the same opportunity.

POLL: If we could vote for Obama again...

If they repealed the term limits and Obama could run for a third term, would you prefer that over the candidate you support now, or would you stick by your current candidate?

Hopefully this poll will be a little break from the regularly scheduled fighting on here.
