    Sanders Still Going Strong May 10, 2016By

    Rick Klein: “If it’s over – and it is indeed over, for almost all intents and purposes – why is the Bern still being felt this intensely? Hillary Clinton’s campaign expects to lose Tuesday’s West Virginia primary handily, probably by a larger gap than it lost Indiana a week ago. Clinton won both of those states against Barack Obama back in 2008; it might be said that they like underdogs, but it can’t be said that they won’t vote for a Clinton. Clinton didn’t contest those states with advertising, and her coal comments surely hurt her in West Virginia. But going dark was her choice, just as her campaign is deciding to start advertising again in primary races, in Kentucky.”

    “Then there are new Quinnipiac polling numbers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida – showing tight Trump-Clinton contests in each, and Sanders a slightly better matchup for Democrats. Clinton may be ready to move on to the general election, but Democratic Party voters aren’t quite there yet.”

  2. *WARNING!* Please warn anyone you think might try to make this. Some cruel, depraved person has put out a recipe for what is purported to be glow sticks, but is actually a chlorine bomb! They even claim it is supported by Bernie, which of course it is NOT.

  8. Pendleton hasn't yet reported. Of the three counties in which Clinton is ahead, she is ahead by 68, 18 NAS 218 votes respectively, for a total of 304 votes. LOL!

  9. Meanwhile, Bernie is ahead in 37 counties! :-D

  10. Wait, scratch the county in which Hillary was ahead by 218 votes. Bernie is now ahead by 5% of the vote there! So Hillary has just two counties at the moment.

  11. What does this bring his delegate count up to now? Do you guys think there is a possibility the MSM may, just possibly, admit that the contest is *not* yet over and Bernie has a chance? Or will he be at the convention, racking up state after state, and the mainstream press will still be printing and broadcasting that Clinton is the presumptive nominee? GRR!

  12. BTW Listener, the buttons arrived yesterday. Thank you very much! Did you intend to include two blue and one white? I hate to think you accidentally sent me one you meant for someone else!

    1. Ah yes, Cat, I definitely intended for you to have all three buttons. I remembered you saying you liked the white and the blue, but the blue a little more. :-) Besides, after such a long wait, I felt you deserved a little something extra! ♥

  13. Sooo!! With 86% reporting, Bernie is ahead by 15.2%. What's more, ALL counties have gone to Bernie, with the exception of the three counties which have not yet reported in at all. :-D

    ReplyDelete
  14. And yes, puddle's county went for Bernie, 49% to 38%. :-D

  15. We'll have to wait until the last of the delegates are awarded, but so far Bernie will get 16 and Hillary will get 11. There are two more to allocate.

  16. Got back from Columbus (Marcon) last night. Or technically this morning, since it was past midnight when I got home, thanks to mechanical problems making the buss 2 hours late.

    Does anyone know who got the 12-13% of the vote that didn't go to either Bernie or Hillary?

    1. The most (about 9%) went to a local candidate, Paul Farrell.

    In 2008, Hillary Clinton took 88% of the Dem primary vote in Mingo County, WV. Today, she took just 21% - largest swing in the nation.

    Chief Mingo was my five greats uncle.
