Bernie Wins But We Still Don't Have the Results

Mish

Numerous sites have declared Bernie the winner by a landslide, but once again we have caucus delays.

Bernie Sanders won the Nevada Caucus, and by a large margin based on exit polls.

But results should have been in long ago.

Is Bernie now unstoppable?

All he has really done is win three states he was supposed to win, and only this one was convincing.

It is better to be in his shoes than not, but Biden's 23% was also way better than expected (if that percentage holds).

South Carolina is up next and that is territory far more favorable to Biden.

We will soon find out if Biden can turn the tide.

Unless polls change dramatically, Bernie will not get the 50% of the delegates heading into the convention.

I hate Trump but no way am I voting Sanders. In my mind Sanders is worse than Trump. Of course I'm talking my book, since I'm in the 1% in net worth. Elizabeth W. is another sure fire loser for me. Wealth taxes don't work and just polarize people.

A blatant communist is not electable. This is resoundingly good news for Trump.

No problemo; The gullible can just move to Cook county and vote for both.

Further proof of the divisiveness of American politics.

It is obvious to me the democrat party is in trouble. If they block Sanders they will lose because his votes will not support the mainstream candidate. If they embrace him they will lose because the flyover state democrats are not going to vote for a communist. If they want to hand Trump the election they are doing a fabulous job. Perhaps you should try some critical thinking, or go back to your bong.

Sanders will not win Trump will be re-elected. But will only be in office 2.6 years then the Democratic's will Take control of the house and Senate in 2022 election. This is prophecy in the Book of Danial in chapter 8 in the Bible. America’s fate is in Rev.

Bernie is now allegedly supported by the Russians :) Your masters clearly have a very low opinion of your intelligence.

The other story is the traditional tiebreaker charade - Nevadans apparently decide by playing cards. Ace is high or low, depending on which makes Bernie lose.
Great circus.

Don't be so hard on them, Mish. Iowa was Feb 3; You didn't learn to count in just twenty days either.

Bloomberg's calculation and it wasn't a bad one that the results would be split before Super Tuesday. That's clearly not how its shaping up. Where is Biden? Trump actually congratulated Bernie who has been his dream opponent all along. This could be a landslide in favor of Trump come November. This wasn't the outcome I was expecting. Seems both parties have lost leave of common sense , pragmatism and moderation. Interesting side note yesterday Eastwood said he's now supporting Bloomberg and not Trump

The Democrats are really going to be in trouble if they have a close primary vote in a big state. It will be like 2000 with hanging chads, corrupt county election officials 'discovering' boxes of ballots and lawyers everywhere. That favors Bloomberg as he hire more of them.

Bernie will win a majority of delegates and there will be no brokered convention. Why? Because the dem voters are already rallying behind him. Just look at how many votes he won in Nevada vs. what the polls were saying. This is a big, big sign that voters want to vote for a winner, and they now think Bernie is the winner. So it will be Trump vs. Comrade Commie Bernie. Let's all just hope Trump brings his A game to the debates and to the ads they will run.

Only in a permanent no growth collapsed zombie economy can an 80 year old Communist rise to power,Lenin Hitler,Mussolini,Castro,Pinochet,Trump and now Sanders,Mugabe all risen from the ashes of a collapsed nation/banana republic.

Trump is kind of screwed if Sanders gets as much air time as he got this weekend. The people are not better off then they were 4 years ago if an insurgent candidate wins a primary again. Both political parties would have been hijacked by outsiders. Oddly Bernie has a shot of winning it all if the economy continues to stagnate for the vast majority of people.

Clint Eastwood may be as tired of the daily Twitter food fight as I am. Here's hoping that his nod to Bloombucks will at least prompt momentary personal reflection by The Donald on the wisdom of using Twitter as the forum for formulating and communicating national strategy and tactics on our most pressing problems.

It's going to be hard to rationalize that Clint is just another leftist shill barking for the Hollywood socialist, MSM crowd, given that he's been casually kicking them in the balls for decades now.

Of course we have the results. Bernie just slaughtered the competition in Nevada, garnering as many votes...as the next 3 contestants combined! It seems that millions of Americans are finally waking up to the fact that centrist, establishment hacks are just that. No amount of neoliberal, conservative or libertarian denial is going to change the fact that the American economy is fundamentally broken.
Many elites and the well-to-do would like to keep the status quo intact. They are upset that Bernie is challenging the establishment trickle-down narrative. That's understandable. They should take a time machine and go back a few decades to fix the horrendous policies they supported leading us to this point in time.

The Bernie Bros are scouting re-education camp sites. The Uighur camp RE development company has secured the contract.

What is interesting is why the results don't come in good time?

Last time out the Democratic primary was stolen from Bernie, well all know it. Stealing it this time will be fun to watch, as Bernie has way more supporters than any of the 'middle of the road' democrats who are invariably tarnished with massive corruption. People are wary of this corruption, so even if a super smooth middle of the road candidate did appear out of left field, I cant see them getting many votes.

I think Mish is correct: Sen. Sanders will not go into the convention with 50% of the delegates, though I do believe that he'll have a plurality of the delegates. If he doesn't win the nomination on the first ballot, I think that he's done. How his supporters react does give me pause, though: Some have already warned that Milwaukee will "burn" if the nomination is "stolen" from Sen. Sanders. Best to break out a history book and read about the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago...

Bernie Sanders will never be president of the USA, he is just another Moscow shill. That means that Trump will win. Either way we end up wit a Moscow shill. The Usa is finished.
