2. They tied.

 

It's not complicated -- seven delegates each is a tie.

3. Because at this stage

 

"Winning" means acquiring more delegates.

She has 11 from Wyoming
He has 7 from Wyoming.

You can reword that anyway you'd like.
You can say but but but minds will change.

But as of this moment in time, snapshot taken, 11>7

No snark intended. That's just facts. Numbers. It's the way primaries work on the D side.

5. Wow. Lose the state and move the goalposts.

 

So you're saying if Hillary had won the state you guys wouldn't be jumping for joy?

Hypocrites I think...

9. ??? What are you trying to say here?

 

You want to jump up and down and celebrate and call it a win, knock yourself out. Makes no difference to me or to the numbers. We are in a contest of delegates not states.

No matter what name you give it, from Wyoming: Hillary 11, Sanders 7

peace.

11. We kind of take things as they come. Bernie won a bunch of states and he is still behind over 200

delegates. Hillary will start winning again in a few weeks and begin to increase the spread. And yes we will be jumping for joy every time.

Going into the convention Hillary will be leading in votes and pledge delegates. So when they call the role of the states one lucky state will give her the nomination.


Then we will jump really high for joy.

4. A split decision among the delegates was great

The delegate count is still favorable and moving forward this bodes well for New York. Clinton clearly over performed and that is great for her.

6. Indeed! How great for a democratic party to sanction poobahs over voters! So awesome!

14. Political parties make their own rules, which is perfectly democratic

And no one is forced to run in a primary, they can always run independent or create their own party.

7. It doesn't matter who won or lost. That is just bragging rights. What matters is Bernie didn't

do well enough to change the race. He is still behind and 14 delegates less to win. And New York coming up.

10. It's not about state wins or losses ...

... it's about delegates.

If you are still confused about that, there are plenty of posts right here on DU explaining the process.

But just a quick reminder for you:

The number of attendees at rallies does NOT add to a candidate's delegate count.
The number of bumper-stickers/yard signs does NOT add to a candidate's delegate count.
The number of "overwhelming wins" in on-line polls does NOT add to a candidate's delegate count.
The number of pro-Bernie posters on DU does NOT add to Bernie's delegate count.

It seems that if there is anyone "medicating themselves with spin", it's the supporters of a candidate who is far behind his competitor in DELEGATES while they still insist that he's "winning".

13. I suspect the Hillary team is very pleased with those results.

Bernie failed to gain any ground and we now have one less state.... and now on to NY and other more fertile territory for Hillary!

15. That was a foregone conclusion.

What's interesting is that it wasn't a blowout and she ended with the same pledged delegate count as Sanders. Therefore, if I were you, I would temper the derision and dismissive posting.

16. When 7 equals 7, that is not a loss, I'm afraid

This is a race for delegates, the only metric that matters.
