Puerto Rico's Democratic primary looks to be as big of a clusterfuck as any other.



Anyone seen anything about this in the media?

1. There must be a new poll coming with Bernie in the lead.

Gotta fix that!

4. Not likely

 

Hmmm...could this be happening because Puerto Rico is undergoing a financial collapse? Or is it part of an elaborate conspiracy by the Clinton campaign to defraud all of the Bernie supporters that have somehow never appeared in any polls?

Come on, If anything the system has skewed in Bernie's favor (regardless of the allegiances of the party elite). He's received 46% of delegates with 42% of votes.

I really wish people would stop coming up with excuses for why Bernie was unable to seal the deal. Obama managed it when Hillary was far more popular.

9. I'm not a Clinton supporter.

 

I wanted Bernie to win, I'm just sick of people throwing around unsubstantiated conspiracy theories because their candidate lost. There hasn't been any verifiable voter fraud in this nomination process.

14. I'm right with you. I'm no Clinton fan, but I do appreciate reality and sound reasoning.

And there's no reason to believe Puerto Rico or a US state not being able to operate as many polling places as they'd like is a benefit to Clinton.

Clinton does better than Sanders in urban areas, and those are typically the areas that suffer from polling place closures and long lines. Not to mention that Sanders has benefit greatly from caucuses, and there's nothing that suppresses the vote quite like a caucus (working people, parents, persons with disabilities, people who want their vote kept private and others don't find caucuses to be accessible).

16. And yet all of these facts

 

conveniently escape some of the Bernie supporters. Also what's funny about the "Clinton supporter" label being thrown at me is that I've been banned from the Clinton forum. Lol

10. And here you go:

 

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/bernie-sanders-democratic-primary-not-rigged-just-dumb/

Bernie has himself acknowledged that the system is not rigged even as he has spent the last several months suggesting otherwise. According to your assumption then, he's a liar. I, for one, don't believe Bernie Sanders is interested in lying. The system is not rigged.

8. Nope.

I never imagined that the Democratic party would get so corrupt.
DWS has gutted the party.

12. By Clusterfuck

I am sure you mean Hillary is winning. Mr. Purity would do nothing to help Peurto Rico so that is not surprising...he doesn't think what is possible with a GOP Congress is good enough...so they get nothing if he had his way.

15. Probably a good idea, given their economic woes at the moment

Why spend exorbitant sums on an election that's already over?
