You probably missed the part about Clinton snatching AL-GA-VA? brooklynite Mar 2016 #1
Nice try though, huh? What with a revolution in the making, we should be shattering turnout records. Tarheel_Dem Mar 2016 #2

OK=42 delegates

But it's not happening. Someone promised to bring in "new voters" by the boatload, but turnout has been down by double digits in most contests so far. I don't think this race can be compared to 2008 since more voters seem to be turning out for Hillary than her competitor.
