after the 2000 election I became obsessed with how we vote and the electoral college,
Of course this would never happen,
if a candidate won I think the 13 largest states by 51% they would get the election, and they can lose all the other states by 80 - 20%

That's way to simplistic, it's a soup your cooking a combination of states. The largest 13 aren't going to Bernie, that's silly.

Lets Just look at the top 6:

California (55),
Texas (38),
New York (29),
Florida (29),
Illinois (20),
Pennsylvania (20)

Those states are split 50/50 between D and R (104 D R 87)

so yes all the states matter- and guess what it doesn't matter if you win 99-1 or 50.01 to 49.99 yiu just need to win, that's why the national polls don't mean crap

Yeah, I think that we have to take a page from the whole impeachment drama.

"If you're arguing process, you're losing"

So Bernie last time, had no mathematical chance of having the most delegates at the convention. But he continued all the way through, and vowed to fight for a contested convention, saying that he might be able to win over superdelegates and get the nomination. Sanders supporters all shouted - Hell yeah! fight til the end!

Now this time, he's saying, whoever gets to the end with the most delegates wins! That there shouldn't be a contested convention.

And Sanders supporters are all shouting - Hell yeah! This is democracy after all, the one with the most votes should win.

Also, if Bernie ends up winning the nomination, will he and Biden sit down and work more moderate policies into the platform and policies of his campaign moving forward like Clinton did with Sanders?



Sorry, I thought you guys needed a good laugh for the day.

if bernie ends up winning the nomination, will biden end up doing 39 rallies in 13 states to campaign for him in the three months leading up to the general election, like sanders did for clinton in 2016? will a single one of these candidates except for warren support him even half that much?

this bs narrative that sanders opposed clinton in an aggressive and mean way and then was a sore loser after the convention needs to die.

While the GOP are absolute morons

The people who are in charge of getting elected are not. They have more $$$$, more resources, and they know how to cheat.

Why do they want Bernie so bad if they’re also so scared of losing power ?

They want Bernie so bad because it’s their easiest platform to run on. It’s also easy if the economy crashes before the election to say “a socialist can’t save you.” If the economy crashes and they’re up against a Biden, there’s no clear argument to be made (logical or illogical).

I for one think they’re flat out wrong and it’ll backfire in their face.

you know, it's almost as if the GOP has an interest in dividing the democratic party as much as possible, or something...

Of course they want to divide us

It’s also possible they have seen the oppo files against Bernie and maybe it’s bad enough there’s no chance they lose ?

Yeah? Like maybe he sexually assaulted dozens of women and had shady ties to organized crime?

Opposition files really do matter these days.

Bernie made some pretty sexist and quite frankly disturbing comments in the past. JC is a dyed deep liberal and he said Bernie can’t win. I would much rather run against Bernie than The killer Bees of Biden, Bloomberg, and Mayor Pete B.

Why because Bernie is so far out there, so excitable, so easy to fluster and his supporters have had some bad behaviors I can run Trump as Centre Right and To the average US Voter he seems the safe choice as long as the economy is strong and we are not at war

"We have a candidate who has risen in the polls because of this track record," Bloomberg senior adviser Tim O'Brien told CNN's "New Day" co-anchor Alisyn Camerota. "[But] Bernie has loopy stuff in his background, saying women get cancer from having too many orgasms or toddlers should run around naked and touch each other's genitals to insulate themselves from porn."

He's written about women's rape fantasies. That hasn't been surfaced. That's the loony side of Bernie," O'Brien added.

Sure did, sorry you can’t understand something said tongue in cheek, or a little exaggeration for humor



Don't seem right, but you can joke about it. I believe you can joke about anything. It all depends on how you construct the joke. What the exaggeration is, what the exaggeration is. Because every joke needs one exaggeration; every joke needs one thing to be way out of proportion. - George Carlin

Dunno who “JC” is...

Anyways, point me at these “pretty sexist and quite frankly disturbing” comments from the past.
