California Delegates: What's Going On?


Due to mail-in votes, California may take a week or longer to assign delegates. What's likely?

California Still Counting​

California is still counting and perhaps will be for days, or longer.

The WSJ reports 89.9% reporting in California with Sanders at 33.6% and Biden at 24.9%.

Those numbers are horribly misleading.

Why? No one knows how many mail-in votes there were.

I suspect Sanders' percentage will rise and Biden's will drop. Let's call it 35% to 23%. Bloomberg is totaling about 14%. He will get some but not many of the delegates. Currently he is assigned 14 and Warren 9.

Based on these totals, I expect Bernie to win about 55% of the Delegates and Biden about 37%. That would be 228 for Bernie and 154 for Biden.

Since 155 delegates are already assigned to Sanders, mentally add another 73 (228-155) delegates to Bernie. And mentally add another 61 (154-93) delegates to Biden.

Guess What?

Sanders will gain no more ground from California!

The Democrats can't get anyone decent. They want Trump, to further divide the masses. Just look at adults 33% obese, 25% with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

No. 1-2

L.A. County started it's new electronic voting system. There were problems at some of the voting stations. Some had to wait up to 3 hours to vote. My experience went smoothly. However, it is a huge expenditure of money, when the Inka vote system- mark an ink dot on your paper ballot choices, worked just fine. The new system apparently cost some 300 million dollars.

With Democrat vote harvesting last time, it took a while to count all the votes.

We also now have pre-registration for high school students at age 16, so they can all become Democratic Party activist voters at 18, as a result of their California Teachers Association indoctrination.
