    I hope so because if Bernie doesn't get the democratic nomination, than I am through with the Democratic Party. I will be voting for Trump in the November election.

    Sadly, I may have to agree with you there. I read an article on a parenting style that was 100% out of sync with what that style was. In fact, he was claiming it was the opposite of what it is. Isn't *some* journalistic integrity required?

    I hope so. Bernie Sanders is pretty much the only way I see myself voting this election.

    Kind of like CNN (Clinton News Network). News sites and channels are generally saturated in some sort of bias these days.

    Do people actually think that delegates to the convention who are long-term, loyal Democrats will choose Sanders over Clinton? They know that Sanders is not even a Democrat.

    If Trump does become POTUS, Crooked/Pandering Hillary and Debbie Wasser-face had a hand in it too. The whole "vote blue no matter what" mentality is the definition of mindless and totally contradicts democracy.

    where is your objective cynicism?
    most of the news articles are bought from a political free lance artist who wrote several bias on the same event.

    The Hillary "believe ability" rhetoric is lost when Trump came on stage.

    best government we get:
    either Hillary or Saders will not get past the republican congress so its dont care which one you pick. Either way they will keep the government from fucking things up

    Trump and the Republicans will actually try to do something and it will only benefit them and their kind.

    whatever

    Well, to be fair, Sanders attracted 27,000 people to a rally in LA - and there have been many like this - yet mainstream corporate media decides not to mention it. Even if you don't like the guy's politics, you've GOT to admit that's newsworthy. No politician in living memory has ever done that yet they ignore it. So why the silence?

    From their behavior in this election so far, I can't call mainstream media 'real' reporters either. Mainstream media has been the BIG manipulator of the facts in this contest, making the Huffington post look like a major think tank. They've said Sanders doesn't have a chance from the start, and yet he defies every critic month after month and STILL they say the same thing. What a bore.

    Sanders threatens the status quo - including mainstream media which is funded by corporates so obviously they don't want him 'in'.

    Anyways, opinions aside, this article below proves with math that Clinton won't make it to her magic number and there will be inevitably a contested convention with pressure on a LOT of super delegates to vote to reflect the popular vote of their state.

    Oh like Hillary is any better, keep on dreaming bunk. She is only out for her own self aggrandizement and that is it. She will just toss you and all her other loyal sycophants under an approaching bus after Election Day but you ultra leftists just cannot seem to comprehend harsh reality.

    You're so right about the mainstream manipulation. Noticed from the start that the rhetoric from mainstream outlets that blatantly favor Clinton was always "it's mathematically impossible for Sanders", even after he had unexpected wins. He literally went from "who?" to pulling in unheard of enthusiasm and funding, but the press about his campaign always had a very negative slant from the beginning. Yet with these same news sources, one could easily forget that Hillary has been under investigation this whole time. It's very interesting.

    Given the extremely do nothing, poor performance from our Republican dominated Congress the last few years; I suspect more than a few GOP slackers will NOT get re-elected in November.

    We could easily have a Democratic POTUS AND Democratic dominated Congress next year.

    Sanders can beat Trump. Clinton stands no chance against Trump. Do the right thing, California!

    I am not following you. Are you talking about roadbikeRob or Donald Trump? I will do anything to avoid Hillary. I don't understand why Hilliary supporters don't find her evil?
    Because all Hillary supporters seriously lack basic comprehension skills. They just don't know how to think for themselves. Relajado is a nosy, mindless foreign national who should mind his own damn business and worry about his own country. His opinion is meaningless.

    Sanders is a con man and a fraud.
    Just like Trump.

    Trump tried to punk the Repub Party,and the Repubs are so damn stupid - they fell for his con game.
    And they're actually going to nominate him!
    What a horribly embarrassing chapter in the history of the GOP.

    Sanders also tried to punk the Democratic Party, but while some far left clowns bought his line of BS - in the end, Democratic voters were too smart to fall for Sanders fraud.

    The Democratic Party isn't perfect, but at least it isn't a political party that's a total joke of a party that's supported by dumbasses, like the Repub party is.

    We Democrats were smart enough to see through Sander's BS and recognize that his policies don't add up and that he's extremely unqualified and unfit to be president.

    Seriously, there's never been any presidential candidates less qualified to be President and Commander-in-Chief than Sanders and Trump.

    Thank God, we Democrats didn't nominate a clown like Sanders or Trump!

    I think I should start posting evidence of electoral discrepancies (like too many people voting in the primaries so far, which I suspect is from computer hacking from thousands of miles away); the extent that I suspect Putin's troll army in trying to get Trump elected (way back when, the first few postings of a Pro-Trump nature were written in broken English); foreign policy statements of Trump, Marine Le Pen (leader of the National Front and having a high chance of winning the French presidency), and other so-called far-right groups in Europe who are purported to be nationalists (and anti-foreign) and are thus rightfully for their point of view to be anti-Nato, Euro-skeptic, anti-EU, or anti-most things, but are magically pro-Russian (before the Paris attacks, the sole funding source for the National Front was a Russian bank, but after National Front's electoral success because of the Paris attacks, they now have broad funding sources); I still have to go through hours of Trump rallies and speeches, but I think they are organized along ways that Russians or some other Eastern European country might do them, etc, etc.

    Trump's current chief adviser is Paul Manafort, who had been chief adviser to Putin's puppet in the Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych. Yanukovych's overthrow and the subsequent new government in the Ukraine precipitated Russian annexation of Crimea (of which Putin was ready to use nuclear weapons if the US militarily intervened to stop) and which has also lead to the current civil war in the Donbass region of Ukraine. Manafort, through Yanukovych, has a direct link to Putin, and had otherwise done Putin's bidding politically in the Ukraine before Putin had to take things to a military level later on, and now the man is Donald Trump's chief political adviser.

    Also it's not a contested convention. The superdels vote fo Hillary and in one vote it is over just like with Obama. Why doesn't Bernie show some modicum of humility and accept he has lost? In it to win kt is now deceitful and he looks desperqte for power like a career politician. Sorry kids.
