Huge win for Bernie!

The actual votes in Kentucky are a virtual tie, which means Bernie falls even more hopelessly behind in the delegate race.

BUT!!! If my #berniemath is correct, Bernie has won 3 new conspiracy theories, 12 baseless allegations of voter fraud, and 5000 angry facebook posts.

Hillary can't possibly match that! #whocaresaboutthedelegates

but a lot of us feel that HRC was crammed down our throats and we had no choice BUT to accept her. THAT is why a lot of people are voting for Sanders. A lot of people like his ideas, but I am sure a huge part of it is protest vote.

20. But that's just not true. You had a chance to vote for Bernie.

Yeah, I know that a lot of people voted for Bernie. Just more people voted for Hillary. I don't see how she could possibly be "crammed" when the people who went out and voted chose her. And by a significant margin at that.

If she had less elected delegates, and the superdelegates put her over, then sure. That would be obviously undemocratic, and it would have been a "cramming". But that's not what is happening.

21. She was crammed

 

by basically having all the Media, DNC, and super delegates behind her before the first primary vote was cast. All her support also scared off any other serious contenders.

Hell, I am thinking Sanders ran only to get his message out. He never expected to get this far. But there is so much dis-like for the Clintons that he has come within 300 delegates of beating her. An unknown, 74 year old Senator from Vermont, who only joined the Democratic party 8 months ago, nearly defeated the most powerful woman in American politics for the last 25 years.

Nobody "crammed" her down anyone's throat (so dramatic ) anymore than you attempted to "cram" Sanders down my throat when you voted for him.

24. No. Because there are literally millions of us that were waiting for 8 years for her to run

And then we voted for her. She had a huge base of grass-roots support long before the race began. Long before a fair number of the people who voted for SBS could even drive, there were millions of us waiting and hoping she would run. I know that's difficult for many to take in, but it's true.

Senator Sanders WAS a viable contender and he proved it, but more people voted for Hillary. More people chose her. More voters supported and responded to her. That's all it is.

25. How can someone

 

be a viable Democratic contender when he only joined the party 8 months ago? Just admit your candidate had a huge advantage in the media, super delegates, and DNC. Crammed was too strong a word, so is coronation, but both those words describe the situation.

38. So you're saying your candidate sucks? Or he wasn't genuinely hoping to gain the nom?

This makes no sense. My candidate sucks because he wasn't even a Democrat so why is yours winning?

The media you partially credit for Hillary's votes has been tearing her a new one on a regular basis for long about 25 years now. They did NOT help her. They've never helped her. I don't expect they ever will.

The supers? I don't think the Democratic party should have supers. However, as the Sanders campaign discounted supers from the beginning, I don't see what they matter. Clinton started 2004 with most of the supers and they switched to the President when he overtook the popular vote. Supers have never determined the outcome of an election.

More people voted for Hillary. We've been waiting for some time now to vote for her. We were already here and waiting, and we got the chance to vote for her, and we did. That's it.

40. No, I am saying yours does

 

by losing one primary contest to an unknown, no experience, freshman Senator from Illinois in 2008. Eight years later, she is doing much better, but she has not locked up the nomination yet.

And the media has been extremely pro-Hillary this cycle. Just watch Maddow sometime.

The main argument being is despite being the most powerful woman in american politics for 25 years, she is not meeting expectations you would see from a stronger candidate.

Has any Clinton supporters wonder why she is having such a hard time?

is so obvious, it went right over your head. It's no longer Dems vs GOP. Indies vote for Bernie and they make up more than any party.

8. If you think there is a lack of angry posts by HRC supporters

...then spend more time on Twitter.

I've seen HRC tweets calling Sanders a "tyrant" and "a delusional psychopath."

I've been called an "idiot" by a dozen HRC supporters in tweets.

proves you wrong among other issues she's tackled outside of any office for the 99%

Perhaps you should try your talking points on someone who isn't familiar with her background.

I knew it! All he needs is to win 1180% of the votes in next couple of races and Bernie wins the nomination!!

Then all we have to do is threaten and harass the super delegates and their families and they'll flip for Bernie just as we have!
