Bernie's going to win!!!

I see everything coming together. I believe the 1/3 of caucus voters which are new caucus goers, if they turn out, Bernie wins 52-43.

People are pumped. Some "expert" on MSNBC said the Bernie supporters are the least "unwavering support". That's such bull since most Bernie supporters are afraid of what happens if he's NOT elected. No Bernie supporter is going to be switching, or they wouldn't be with Bernie in the first place.

Bernie 52% Hillary 42% Marty 2%

1. I dont think it matters which one wins given it will be so close. I think what

matters is there may well be a new sheriff in town, and he is a funny looking Jewish guy with some crazy ideas like everybody should have healthcare and not have to go broke accessing it.

Or that you should be able to get a decent education without going into debt for the rest of your life.

Crazy guy...indeed.

5. Love your DU name!

I love Jackie Wilson and I love the Van Morrison song "Jackie Wilson Said". We are going from "the skinny black kid with the big ears" to a funny looking Jewish guy with some crazy ideas like everybody should have healthcare and not have to go broke accessing it.

I am loving it!

7. ...



Saw Van Morrison, Palace of Fine Arts in the 80's...I own all of his work, or I did, cant keep up with him actually.

I dont know the full story but know he is bitter about ownership of his music, he must have been victim of a bad deal along the way.

9. Saw him in Philly some years back.

But what I wouldn't give to see him at a small club somewhere. His music has always been some of my favorites. We don't have all of his albums either. The man is nothing if not prolific!

8. Jury Results


On Sun Jan 31, 2016, 07:14 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

I dont think it matters which one wins given it will be so close. I think what
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=1105559

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

"Funny looking Jewish guy" ... really?!
This is a new DUer and (as a Jew) I find this offensive. What does Jew have to do with it, especially coupled with "funny looking" as the adjective. I don't alert on much, either.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sun Jan 31, 2016, 07:25 PM, and the Jury voted 0-7 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Any poster can be offensive when the reader chooses to take offense. In this case the intent is to display the thoughts of unthinking, shallow, maybe bigoted kinds of voters -- put in a jokey tone. I read that tone between the lines. The Alerter misreads the spirit of the sentence. I'd remind the Alerter not to be so all-fired quick to judge new people. Let them stay awhile. They can reveal themselves without your second guessing. If you don't like what they say, challenge them. Don't censor them. You keep a very democratic organization growing by actually being democratic.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Jewish is an adjective describing Bernie Sanders. Not being Jewish myself, I guess I'm not as sensitive to it as the alerter, but the post is obviously quite complimentary to Sanders. It's a close call but in my opinion even a tie goes to the poster.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I didn't get the impression that this post was meant to be offensive at all. I got the impression that s/he supports Bernie and was making a comment on society's attitudes. Sometimes, people seem a little to quick to be offended. Perhaps asking for clarification before hitting the alert button is in order. That way, if it turns out that it was meant to be offensive, you can still alert, but if it wasn't you haven't made a frivilous alert.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I understand the sensitivity here but I don't feel the poster intended to sight Jews in any way. I think this is an innocent descriptive, albeit an unfortunate one.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation

6. I think it would be so much more visibly a revolution if Bernie were to win this caucus though...

 

... as people all gather in each of the caucus locations for a few hours to vote and put together platform planks, etc. This is a lot more visible and engaging process than just dropping off votes in to a box either in the mail or at a precinct voting booth. A lot harder for the corporate media to cover up strength of someone like Bernie really stirring up the youth vote, etc. I hope that we have a lot of cell cameras in Iowa City, Ames, and up in Cedar Falls to show the students all gathering at the caucus site to show the revolution happening in action! I hope they aren't restricted from having cameras at these gatherings. I think the kids themselves could start the revolution so many other places later by showing their participation tomorrow night! Just DO it!!! Help us and Bernie fix our country!!!

It will be very strategic how they work with O'Malley supporters who are likely going to be looking for delegations to join to be viable, or try to recruit others to do so if they have enough delegates to just get a few more.

The media has tried to cover up online reports after debates and make it sound like their pundits represents the masses' opinions. It will be really hard to do that in Iowa, especially in these big college towns if those videos are spread a lot on social media.

10. If this were a primary election rather than a caucus I would agree

with you. Bernie will roll up big majorities in the college towns but the rural areas are likely to be much closer.
