Politics 2016 Democratic Primaries

Major

We have a thread for the Republican Primaries, so might as well have one for the Democrats as well.

Bernie had a big 20+ point win in New Hampshire tonight over Hillary.

What does it mean? I don't know. I think it shows a huge distrust that Americans have for Hillary right now. A year ago, this result was unthinkable. Bernie is still obviously a huge long shot to win the nomination. Hillary is much more popular among minorities, and Iowa and New Hampshire are two states without a lot of diversity. Things are going to get a lot more difficult for him in South Carolina and Nevada.

I think Bernie will do well with minorities. However if he does get the nomination I'm not sure the nation at large will go for him. All the freebies he is promising may shove us over a cliff with debt that we are already teetering on. Not saying some of his ideas aren't good ones. Which I doubt he will get most of it past the republicans anyway.

I have a feeling a lot of people don't know about his days with the Socialist Workers Party.

Should be interesting to see how it plays out with this two horse race. While my preference is Sanders getting the nod, I'm not against it being Hilary either. I just trust Sanders more.

Personally, I believe Hillary Clinton is going to be the Democratic nominee, and it's not going to be close.

The democrat primary is rigged. Even though Hillary was demolished, she won more delegates because the dems have superdelegates that are not beholden to the popular vote. Sanders won of the regular delegates but Hillary already has 10X the number of delegates as Sanders.

Sanders is getting a lot of minority support here in SC. probably won't win but will do a lot better than people expect. But with a fixed primary it won't matter.

That's the 2008 argument all over again.

It was b.s. then and it's b.s. now.

No, 1/3 of the delegates are super delegates and so far over half of them have committed to Clinton. That's fact not bs. It's hard to win a race when the other gal starts out 1/3 off the way down the track.

Also she WON more delegates in NH than Sanders. That's a rigged system.
And if Sanders wins the popular vote, they'll switch to him.
