Hopefully Hillary increases her lead to 250 - 300 tomorrow

to make it harder for Bernie to catch up. I think this is very doable!

1. That's very likely ...

... and even if it's not that much, it will still be an INCREASE! Which means, of course, that Bernie falls further behind!

She with the most delegates gets the nomination. He with the fewest delegates returns to the Senate.

Go, Hillary!

5. I don't want to ruin your excitement

The lead was supposed to increase by 100+ tomorrow and she was and is expected by pundits to win all 5. It won't and she won't. By definition that is largely underperforming. So pump the brakes. The momentum is not in your favor

and whatever other ones you flood your posts with.

While I am at it, where should I send your shirt?

18. ...and instead he got a "virtual tie" (remember when that's what folks called Massachusetts?)

Bottom line, he still underperforming his targets; the goal here isn't to "win" States, it's to win enough delegates, and he's not.

33. Oh...they're both virtual ties. As was IA.

 

It's really stupid to call any of them a win for anybody. They're not moving the needle either way for Sanders or Clinton and at the convention, the delegates will offset sufficiently as to have no real impact on the outcome.

The only reason we have any attention to who wins a functional tie in a proportional primary is because ties in politics, like ties in sports, make for bad TV. Let's all stop feeding the media stupidity and call them what they are: ties and non-decisive wins where the assigned delegate-gain is less than a handful and has no clear impact. (If IA yesterday didn't show that...Clinton "won" the caucus...and lost the delegate vote in Mercer Co. yesterday, likely flipping the outcome statewide.)

Winner-take-alls are different, but proportional contests can be and often are ties, actual or functional.

35. Say three states are "virtual ties" and FL and NC go big for Clinton

Bernie gets still further behind in delegates with 5 less states to contest. How is that good for Bernie?

In order to catch up before the convention Bernie needs to win big in a bunch of states while not losing any more by wide margins. Because if Hillary gets to the convention with even a one pledged delegate lead, the super delegates are going to give her the nomination on the first ballot.

You with the jumping frog - show me a probable path for Bernie to catch up because I don't see one.

Florida could certainly get out of hand. I'm basing mine on the premise that NC will be much closer.

That's why they are predictions. Someone is bound to be right!

14. Do you guys clap and cheer at your tv when Hillary name drops Henry Kissinger or quietly cringe?

 

How about when she stumbles and stammers to justify taking millions of dollars from Wall Street, "September 11" or "everybody's doing it"--do you whoop it up and high five over her brilliant response or awkwardly hope they move quickly to another topic?
