Some Maine caucases are sharing #'s. Congrats Bernie!

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/03/puerto-rico-maine-primary-results/472485/

Participants are already sharing the results of their own caucuses on social media, and reporters are offering numbers from the caucuses they attended. A reporter for the television station WCSH, for example, added up the numbers at all five caucus sites in South Portland, tallying 819 votes for Sanders, and 440 for Clinton. In Brunswick, the Bangor Daily News reports, it was 878 for Sanders, and 688 for Clinton. These arenít the official tallies, of course. But these numbers, like those offered up by other participants, are sure to buoy the mood at Sandersís headquarters.

6. It's almost as if they view them with disdain, for not being diverse. It's quite sad

to see race used as a wedge.

12. I am reasonably certain that race is NOT a "WEDGE issue" ....

... for people of color. I feel reasonably confident that it is an important issue regardless of who they support.

14. I wasn't talking about PoC. I was talking about Hillary's campaign and talking points.

I thought that was clear.

5. What do you mean by that?

Is it the equivalent of saying 'deepest darkest (insert southern state here)'?

Does that kind of rhetoric really have a place here?

10. That is what the hill folk will say. They discount Bernie's wins in white states.

 

It is sad to use race as a wedge issue in a democratic primary.

7. Apparently Juror #7 does not know the meaning of "in before"

Juror #4 too for that matter.

9. Great job!!

Of all reporting so far, only 2 cites barely went to Clinton. She doesnt seem to resonate with liberal voters.

15. Well, this is interesting. Locals with laptops more able to report than billion dollar media outfits

?
Seems like this primary system is exposing some cracks in the system.

16. maybe the weather is better in Puerto Rico? ;)

and it really is the media's duty to report on progressive achievements like ballots for felons. Nothing else to look at here. Moving right along, Nancy Reagan... (no disrespect intended)

BTW - did you know Nancy's son Ron endorsed Bernie in 2015?
