Disappointing Turnout At Democratic Primary… I’M KIDDING!

Utah’s never seen anything this bizarre.

The republicans are turning out in “Huuge” numbers to vote AGAINST their presumed nominee, (Donald Trump), and democrats are turning out in “Huuge” numbers to vote AGAINST their presumed nominee also, (Hillary Clinton).

We won’t know until morning, but from what I’ve seen on my, (so far), republican-bias TV stations here, the democrats are voting for the person they actually want.

Bernie Sanders.

Guess we’ll find out in the morning. I saw a lot of Hillary supporters. My “Bernie” badge didn’t get any real opposition on my little walk.

    I’m not the only one who filmed this.

    Bernie took Utah by storm with 79.7 percent of the vote. Idaho also a yuuge win for Bernie.

    The MSM called Arizona for Hillary while there were still long lines of people waiting to vote. The issue of voter suppression is being raised.

    Even with the suspicious Arizona primary results, it looks like Bernie will narrow the delegate gap.

    Utah caucus results from KSL:

    Bernie Sanders – 79.7% (18 delegates)

    John Kasich – 16.9% (0)
    Donald Trump – 14.0% (0)

    Seth Abramson on HuffPo: Bernie Sanders Is Currently Winning the Democratic Primary Race, and I’ll Prove It to You

    [T]he Clinton-Sanders race is a 5-point race nationally — just a hair from being a statistical tie, given the margin of error — despite the media treating Clinton’s nomination as a foregone conclusion.

    …consider the fact that Hillary does not, outside the deep-red Deep South, do particularly well among voters when they’re given any other reasonable alternative.

    I’m flabbergasted at the turn out at the Dem caucuses. At mine, I don’t think the line was ever shorter than several blocks long. I hear 75% of democratic caucuses ran out of ballots.

      I just can’t get over it. This primary blew me away!

      Feels GREAT!

    The MSM barely reported what happened last night in Utah and Idaho. They called Arizona for Clinton – while thousands of people were still standing in line waiting to vote – and went back to saying Bernie’s campaign is over.

    Bernie closed the gap by at least 6 delegates. [Correction: Bernie closed the gap by 16 delegates. Last night and with Dems Abroad, Bernie picked up 83 delegates for a net gain of 21. Now the delegate deficit is down to 298.]

      The local news makes me angry too. The Republican side of the story always runs first. They’re treating the democrats like Alan Colmes got treated on Fox “news”.

      The democratic caucuses were clearly the big news yesterday.

    Bernie is going to be on TYT (The Young Turks) tonight [correction 4:00 pm MST] and Cenk Uygur is doing the interview. Ought to be fun. (BTW that’s on YouTube). If you miss it, hopefully it will be available later.

    Here’s a good monologue from Cenk. It’s a 10 minute rant.

    Markos Moulitsas: Is it game over for Sanders?

    The new DNC talking point: dismiss Bernie, but hope his supporters will soon pivot to loving the Dem establishment. This guy is the proprietor of Daily Kos, which is banning Bernie supporters. I deleted my bookmark and won’t go there anymore!

      You have to feel bad for all the excellent posters at KOS, who are now sorry they would be wasting their time to remain. :(

      Excellent!

      Imagine the strongest candidate of our lifetime getting interviewed by a friendly.

      I’m downloading it right now.

      Can’t wait to see Hillary’s sit down with Cenk.

      Funny attempt by the media to use a thirty year old interview with Sanders to, indirectly, connect him to communism without saying it.

      Nice!

    Donald is Huuugely against the TPP

    Bernie Sanders just killed Alaska!

    80.7% with 100% of the votes reported.

    He wins Washington: 72.1 % with 79% reporting.

    Hawaii results still aren’t in.

    • #26 by Richard Warnick on March 26, 2016 - 9:14 pm

      Hawaii won’t report until after midnight Utah time.

      • #27 by Larry Bergan on March 26, 2016 - 9:21 pm

        As far as I’m concerned, Arizona hasn’t reported yet either.

        I don’t know. Utah and Idaho LOVE Sanders, but I Guess Arizona just can’t get enough of that Hillary Clinton magic. :)

    Additional trounce comes in from Hawaii:

    70.6% for Sanders!

    Time for Hillary to start considering throwing her support behind somebody who can win for democracy.

    Markos Moulitsas Zuniga should try to save his forum. Sale high!

  14. #30 by Larry Bergan on March 30, 2016 - 2:35 am

    Perhaps Arizona’s voters are upset that they look stupid voting for Hillary, when 5 other western states in a row, (including Utah), voted in historic victories for an opposing party candidate.

    • #31 by Larry Bergan on March 30, 2016 - 3:07 am

      Do you think these people are upset they couldn’t vote for Hillary?

      I do not. :(
