    Duuude seriously? The last Dem primary was a coronation, not an election. With DWS as master of ceremonies. I have no idea how anybody with half a brain couldn't see that.

    You're an idiot - you trusting Nate Silver can't make a political poll represent voters that didn't participate in the poll.

    Nate silver doesn't make any poll. But he rates polling and cnn/ssrs has been extremely accurate. And if you look other places in there it only shows the statistically non-significant group as being between 50 and 65. The idea that they would do a national poll of only elderly people doesn't even make sense. This is also the case with the under $50,000 income

    Yeah, I for one was shocked when DWS came to my house, tied my wife and me up, and voted for Killary in our place.

    She won by 3.5M votes and 12%. That's what is known as a landslide. Bern and his whiny Bros had no chance, and he has no chance this time. Thanks for the laugh - do you teach children?

    Superman picks the Superdelegates.

    Arenít the super delegates people that are elected public officials in each state that are Democrats?...like Mayors and state senators and even congresspeople?

    In theory, superdelegates are actually a good idea. They help keep the party steady over time and help prevent candidates from outside the parties core values from orchestrating a populist take over of the party...GOP, and all of us, could have really benefited from a couple thousand superdelegates in 2016.
    Birds are real.

    Not necessarily elected officials. Just party movers and shakers.

    The democrats invented super delegates to keep George McGovern from happening again. Itís all about who the DNC thinks is most electable. And in 2016, the DNC clearly didnít believe that was Bernie.

    But Iím pretty sure superdelegates have never swung an election including 2016. Hillary had the most votes. By a large margin.

    A few, but I gave them to my friends. That's how influence works.

    I'm pretty sure they haven't either. But in 2016 Hillary won by roughly 1000 delegates. There were 712 super delegates, 572 of whom voted for Hillary. That's a pretty nice insurance policy to have going in, all courtesy of the DNC.

    I wish the 2016 Republicans had super delegates.

    Exactly. If I remember correctly, some of Hillaryís early super delegates went to Obama after he started winning. People forget how much of an underdog he was.

    Ady is that dude. He was great on PSA. This is a good interview as well. Ady is literally going out fighting for the rest of us.

    Some analysis in WaPo indiciating Warren and Pete would be the first to reach 270.
