Uh oh, remember when Rove/Fox were beside themselves when Obama won, election night?

How they were absolutely CERTAIN Mittster was gonna win?

My dear friend who supports Bernie (so do I but we differ on what to do if Bernie loses, he has lost his mind and will support Drumpf maybe) sent me an email today with a link to some obscure site with the following headline:

Bernie Sanders Projected To Win California With 61.25% Gaining 398 Delegates

The actual polls are of course very different, much to my dismay.

So how do you think these type of Bernie fans are going to react if Bernie loses California when THEIR sources are telling them he is going to win?

3 guesses, the first 2 dont count...stay home on election day because they were cheated.

Like I said, uh oh.

This appears to be the site he is relying on

3. I think it is very relevant to African Americns if Drumpf is elected by default because

people sat on their asses.

I think lots of black folks would be harmed, quite frankly, by a Drumpf presidency.

But if you are a host of this forum and are telling me not to do this, I wont.

4. I agree sitting out elections is bad, but your OP has zero mention of Black folks.

Sitting out elections or otherwise.

Again, it's GD-P material.

5. The site he is relying on says Bernie must win 73% of the vote to get that many delegates--

the same percent as in WA.

But Washington state had a caucus, not a primary, and has very few minority voters compared to California. So it's a ridiculous assumption to think CA will meet WA's numbers. Even in Oregon -- which is also much whiter than CA -- Bernie won only 56% of the vote.

Also, Hillary has more than 1700 delegates now, not 1400. The whole thing is a fantasy built on a pile of sand.
