Bernie crowd shuts down MSNBC reporter

Bernie crowd shuts down MSNBC reporter trying to prove his supporters aren’t registered Dems

MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt came up dry on Tuesday as she tried to prove supporters at a Bernie Sanders rally were not registered Democrats. Reporting from outside a Sanders rally in Syracuse, Hunt noted that the massive crowd was lining up five hours in advance to see the candidate.

“Here’s my question for you guys,” Hunt said, addressing the Sanders supporters on live TV. “And this is going to be Bernie Sanders’ main problem here in New York — are y’all registered Democrats?”

“Yes,” the group replied.

As Hunt moved down the line, the answer again and again was “yes.”

“Anyone not registered?” Hunt pleaded.

“I am registered!” one man volunteered.

“Alright, there you go,” Hunt sighed. “I spent some time talking to people yesterday at another rally, and a lot of them are all set to go. But there is this issue with independent voters. If you didn’t change your voter registration earlier this year, you’re out of luck if you want to change it now and vote for Bernie Sanders.”

On Monday, MSNBC’s Alex Seitz-Wald warned that “New York’s closed primary could be Bernie Sanders’ Achilles’ heel.”


Poor Kasey had her narrative all ready to go and the Bernie people shut her right down.

1. ? I thought the deadline for changing registration was October, before the first Pres. debate, butd

the deadline for new registrations was March 25 of this year.

If I am correct, this reporter had it wrong, which is ironic, since her mission was apparently to prove Sanders' supporters had it wrong.

2. Kasey, shame on you.

Buying into your msnbc narrative! Shucks. I used to watch you -- past tense. Gave up on msnbc when it went full clinton.

3. I've read many posts here worried about voters not being properly registered as Democrats

Which thing is an issue?


You can't have it both ways.

5. I guess my point stands

Unless you care to counter the obvious paradox here.

9. Can you respond to my point?

It's a question about the obvious contradiction to the many other posts I see here on this topic.

Look, if I'm missing the point and am an idiot, just tell me - I can take it.
