Sanders brought more Oregon voters into the Democratic Party.

Yep! He brought in 7% fewer voters in Oregon.

2008 Primary
Obama: 375,311
Clinton: 259,782
Sub Total: 635,093

Write-In: 5,537
Grand Total: 640,630

2016 Primary
Sanders: 333,638
Clinton: 257,374
Sub Total: 591,012

Write-in: 10,634
Grand Total: 601,646


Sanders would like to think Oregon is a state that looks like the Democratic Party. Except it isn't. It deviates from the Democratic electorate by a factor of 42 with zero being New Jersey.
New Jersey's Democratic Primary Electorate
White: 57%
Black: 26%
Hisp/Lat: 11%
Asian/Other: 6%


Oregon's Electorate
White: 87%
Black: 1%
Hisp/Lat: 4%

Asian/Other: 7%


Sanders has won every state with 78% or more white population except for Iowa, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Clinton has won every state with 15% or more black population except for Michigan. New Jersey and District of Columbia are in that range.

Clinton has won every state with 19% or more Hispanic/Latino. New Mexico and California are in that range.

However, demagogues profit from manipulating crowds by suppressing their ability to distinguish fact from fiction.

On a bad hair day, he might even throw himself under the new bus.

I think he is and will continue to be a very lonely man.

And the Bernie Bros and their friends the "Chair Throwing" Nader Nurses should definitely go to California instead because we don't like to be threatened here in the "Garden State".

They are just ex Obama or Clinton workers who couldn't get work with Hillary so they jumped on the Bernie train. They are not the type to encourage the typical Bernie supporter's bullying behavior. So if anything goes on they will be from out of state.

I am sure that Bernie has already given up on New Jersey.

Illinois and Michigan.

Illinois was about 650 votes if I recall.

Michigan can't really use because Obama and other Democrats took their name off the ballot in 2008.

shits and giggles, I looked up the 2012 senate race results.

Sanders: 207,848
MacGovern: 72,898

total votes: 280,746

Presidential primary 2008 was a total of 151,707

presidential primary 2016 total of 134,198

17,509 less than 08 vote totals and 146,548 less votes than his 2012 senate campaign.

This is his home state, where are those new voters he is bringing in?
