Take a Deeeep Breath, Berners

Yes, I am new to DU but I have been around a long time and have been through campaigns since '72. Everything is proportional. She 'won' Iowa by .3 of a point yet if you look at an electoral map Iowa is hers. Similar problem with a slightly larger margin with her 'winning' Massachusetts. So what if she 'wins' Ohio? The delegates will be apportioned by percentages again. I await the results of Illinois and Missouri but if she 'wins' them too then so what? The worm will turn and the map does not favor her.

I will donate again tonight to Bernie and do everything I can to help nominate him because I believe he is the only person who can win in November and he is the candidate of my lifetime.

For all you Hillary supporters who blocked me on my 3rd post here because I did not understand the 'rules' about 'groups' you need not respond to this OP. Save your breath because you will need it in the future in the event you are defending yourselves for handing this to Trump.

Keep the Faith Berners. It ain't over, it's going to be a long haul and I'm in it for the Long Run.

Just to mention I was banned from there (first post there, to boot) just for voicing my opinion that for me the entire concept (without mentioning any current candidates) of the rôle expected to be played by a FLOTUS, or indeed a FGOTUS, willingly or otherwise, appears to my eye to be extremely sexist.

I've been through campaigns as a voter since 1972 also. I keep hoping that we get a dove in the White House instead of a hawk; a dreamer and doer with a Congress to match. There are so many good things that we could do in the USA if instead of preaching exceptionalism we concentrated on doing the right things right.

they have a secret misery known only inside themselves---the mean ones, anyway. It takes a shallow person to relish another person's discomfort, pain. This is far from over and if you want to smash something I recommend raw eggs, preferably in a bowl or against a large plastic bag taped to the wall and I hope you have either a good omelette recipe or a mop and lots of paper towels. Chin up, this is going to get better. email me if you feel so inclined!

I can't help but put the worst of the H supporters on here as the face of the candidate. I know I shouldn't. I don't want Bernie being judged by his supporters but it sure is hard not too. I think a craven candidate would attract the same types of people as supporters. Honestly, how hard would it be to meet someone only to find they were a Trump supporter, it would be very hard not to judge on that alone. But, we are fighting the good fight, we can't back down.

who suffered through that fiasco to help keep all of us updated. I think it has to go through yet another convoluted state vote to settle the delegate count and that is coming up later on. It's all about staying in it for the long run and I know Bernie is not going to bail on us. Thanks and keep the faith!

by the suddenness of it. I know I must be in good company! All I said was she would swing back to the right so fast their heads would spin! (And I was referring to her hubby's run for office.) You'd think I had used a bad word or something.....

36. Checking in from Cedar Crest, NM

 

I have no worries, Ohio was a toss up anyways, hopefully Bernie gets IL and MO. Reality is Clinton is not going to keep doing as well. Think I read another post on how this is the last of her southern state "firewall", let's see what happens on the west coast.

46. Hello, neighbor!

Yes, we are close neighbors! Yes, I think KY (May 17th I think) will be the end of this streak and everything else is looking so good. I ignore the MSM and refuse to accept the conventional 'wisdom'. It's only going to get better!

It cemented a disdain between me and groups other than
"General Discussion".

I will back Bernie forever because he is on my side.

Thank you "Land of Enchantment". (can't wait to google it)

41. Hillary camp banned me for stating the truth

 

about the difference between their respective rally here in Des Moines. The Hillary rally lacked the enthusiasm that was apparent in the Bernie rallies. Most folks at the Hillary rally acted like she was some kind of Hollywood starlet whereas Bernie came across as the people candidate.

65. They do get a little touchy

and some can be downright mean but I'm guessing they might just be a little jealous of the enthusiasm for their opponent. I've always thought she started out at her peak and has nowhere to go. She can't grow her base and is, in fact, losin her base bit by bit. I would love to go to a Bernie rally but we vote on June 7th. Rats.

96. LOL She is up about 2 million votes over Bernie, and 300+ delegates

and chooses to do smaller gatherings for a reason. I'd say both her strategy, and voter enthusiasm, are producing pretty good results so far.

43. I've been looking at the delegate counts.

Nearly every site I have checked (if not EVERY site) is including the super delegates in their counts. CNN is also doing this somewhat frequently. Going by those numbers, she has more than double his delegates, overall. If, however, we remove the super delegates from the count, her lead becomes far less overwhelming. Still, I do expect that the numbers being repeatedly thrown up are going to convince a lot of people that Sanders is already out of this.

I have to admit, it's a struggle for me tonight. I am watching the Illinois numbers and they don't look good. Looks like we might pull off a win in Missouri, which would be some salve for our wounds, at least. Michigan was a huge upset, which, perhaps, made us a bit over-confident going forward. So each of tonight's defeats, I think, will seem far more significant than they actually are.

There's a number of states still to go, a number of votes still to take place. Particularly... California. The polls there seem to indicate a significant Clinton lead, but Sanders has demonstrated his ability to move forward, to come up from behind. From 3%, to a real challenger. From practically no money, to fund raising that has blown away previous records - most of which comes from regular people.

It will be harder now, a more uphill struggle than it was even before... but we have come up, come forward from so very much less - that I believe we can do this. Bernie Sanders is the man who represents my progressive ideals. Not only does he lead on climate change - he is the only candidate, period, who is giving it the attention and significance it deserves. Let's keep going, keep our enthusiasm and our faith strong until the convention.

Don't take the insults, the ignorance - or the contempt of others to heart. Let them laugh, let them tell us it's hopeless, that it's already over. As long as we remain true to our principles, to what we need, to what we believe in, to what we can do... we will keep this thing moving forward. Let's keep fighting for every vote, for every state and every delegate remaining. We can still do this. It is not mathematically impossible, it is not so severely unlikely as some "experts" are predicting.

I'm not going to give up, I'm not throwing in the towel, nor should anyone else. We can climb that hill, we can win this thing.

If you were to tell me six months ago Bernie would be in the position he is now, I'd have slapped you and called myself Nancy. No offense to Nancy's, just saying. He has a shot, a long shot, but it's a shot. His state wins will keep getting better I have no doubt.

it's just this ugly comments from the Hillary bullies it sorta takes ones breath away. We'll get back on our feet. besides we have 2 states too close to call and in the 3 states he lost he gained over 100 delegates , now how does that spell a winning strategy to have your opponent win 100 + delegates?? Mind you Obama wasn't settled until the last few weeks.

I will add another pledge to Bernie in addition to my monthly giving...If the 1%er thinks this over, she has another thought to think...

When HRH comes out ahead in a contested state, she barely squeaks by...Only in Republican states does she win by a wide majority...

If there is any justice in the world, Bernie will win...

The West has yet to be won. California has I think 564 delegates to the Democratic convention.

But I am very disappointed in Illinois and Ohio. What fools they are.

Do they really like Hillary's stance on fracking????

If she or Trump wins, it will be a sad day for the environment.

And no matter which would win, we would have war.

Go, Bernie!

Making a huuuuge sign for Bernie for the piece by the highway. Our neighbor CHAIN SAWED the huge one we made for Obama in '08. It was on 4x4's and was 8x4 feet, donated to us by an 80 year old lady here.

I got a really cold notice when I got kicked out and didn't know how to handle it. I inadvertently wandered into Nancy somebody's snake
pit and had no recourse as far as I could tell. If you are banned from the Crown Jewel Group it will likely happen after you have logged out and won't realize it until later. Just sayin...

81. Another C-note to Bernie

 

Proud to say that I'd never DREAMED I'd ever give an amount such as I sent Bernie's way since he started his quest. Unlike sending money to support the Coronation, I look at it as an investment in my and my family's life - NOT a validation of all things corporate.

I was surprised by the outcome, I thought Mr. Sanders would have won in at least two states. Just goes to show how the establishment is so powerful.

Very sad tonight, but let's hope this is not the end of Mr. Sanders Campaign, he needs to keep going. He is the person Americans need right now! Not Trump or Mrs. Clinton!
