    The United States is not a democracy. We need a candidate who can win the electoral college and that isn’t Bernie Sanders.

What is Democratic about crowning a man king on the basis of 1/4th of the vote?

    Your usual rabid hatred for the man is noted.

    Bernie Sanders is leading in Nevada an will likely have twice as many delegates as anyone else two weeks from now.

    bernie has his skeletons, including one on rape. If he’s the nominee, you’ll find out what they are starting the week of July 13th.

    After watching the whole 2 hours of the democrat debate the big winner is President Trump.

    Democrats attacking each other proves why everyone should vote for President Trump.

    It's almost like it's hard to have a large percentage of the vote when like 8-10 people are still in the race.

    Debating each other proves why the country needs Donald Trump.

    It’s actually like those popular vote polls are inflated by non-Democratic voters. 3/4ths of Democratic voters want someone else.

    Not necessarily. What he is saying is that in second ballot the delegates should rally behind the candidate with the most delegates (consequently popular vote since it's all proportional in the Dem primaries), which is perfectly fine and allowed by the rules.

    Yes, the superdelegates can pick a different candidate other than the one with the plurarity, but they can also pick the one with the plurarity, and that's what Bernie advocated for.
    Please take COVID-19 seriously; don't panic but don't deny it; practice social distancing (stay 6ft from people); wash your hands a lot, don't touch your face, don't gather with too many people, so that you help us contain it. It's not a concern just for the elderly. If we allow our health care system to be overwhelmed, all age groups who might need all other care will suffer.
