43. Why? This is a beautiful example of democracy in action. Why would ANYONE not want that? Every state

gets to have a say. 'Wrapping it up' means depriving voters of the right to THEIR say in a campaign which to me is an awful way to run a democracy

I love the way this campaign is going, it is truly democracy in action. No state will be denied its right to vote in this Primary. Why on earth would anyone not want that?

Most exciting campaign I remember in my lifetime, with so many important issues finally getting attention. It isn't about YOU, or ME or how WE feel. It's about this country. I just love the democratic process in action.

If he's behind in pledged delegates, I'd agree. TDale313 Apr 2016 #24
Of course. The Supers really shouldn't have any actual influence.... moriah Apr 2016 #25
That's not how it works. The supers have had massive influence this primary. stillwaiting Apr 2016 #58
