With turnout up 50%, Sanders wins 69% of vote from Democrats Abroad, awarded 125% delegate lead

Last edited Mon Mar 21, 2016, 03:00 PM - Edit history (1)

Sanders 69%
Clinton 31%

That is more than double, all over the world!


Delegates
Sanders 9
Clinton 4

That is a 125% lead in delegates!


Source: http://www.democratsabroad.org/global_presidential_primary_results

Democrats abroad and around the world, as well as domestic Democrats who have either traveled or else learned about other countries, sure as hell know that education and health care are not luxurious "freebies" in the modern world!

On edit: Sanders also scored 4 out of 4 superdelegates, on top of the above. For those counting supers, today's total is this 13-4 in favor of Sanders. See http://www.democratsabroad.org/global_presidential_primary_results

On second edit: ambiguity in the source document between two groups of four delegates (supers and at large) may mean supers are not fully determined yet so to be safe.let's go back to original 9-4 margin in the original, unedited post.

1. Does this mean they actually have to travel to Berlin?

Democrats Abroad will hold a combination of local, regional and worldwide Caucus meetings to choose delegates to the Democratic National Convention. These meetings will culminate in a Global Convention in Berlin on May 14, 2016.


There are still 8 delegates outstanding.

4. Sanders also got all 4 superdelegates on top of the above, but not even counting those! Lol

Though consistency is important, so those that separate out superdelegates should report these

6. That is 9 delegates gained (see edit above)

I'm sure you and the MSM will ignore these delegates as necessary to make it appear he is under performing tomorrow in Arizona.

7. Completely belying the fact that Bernie's great win will come as people get to know him better.

 

Apparent it's distance that makes the heart grow fonder, not knowledge or attending rallies to get to know him.

9. Sanders won 52 individual countries/regions, Clinton only 3. Guess which countries?

Clinton on onoy Nigeria, Dominican Republic, and Singapre.

Nigeria only had 5 votes, but the Dominican Republic was the one huge clinton outlier, winning 350 to 60 or something like that. What is up in Dominica. REPUBLIC? (no big deal though)
