1. It's been 2-3 months since the last time this was posted so maybe someone missed it.

6. Please read your post again.

I doubt that language came from your link. Even ABC News doesn't write like that. Never mind that this is a very old story. What you put in quotes isn't on that link.

9. The idiots who did this mock election do not understand the rules for awarding Delegates

Under the rules for the Democratic Party, delegates are awarded proportionately. This silly but ignorant poll has Sanders winning 100% of the delegates in most states



The only way that a candidate can win 100% of the delegates in a state is if no other candidate gets 15% either in a district or statewide. The idiots who did this mock election do not understand the rules of the Democratic Primary

It is sad that anyone thinks that this silly exercise means anything
