Bernie Wins Wyoming

So he wins by 11 points and they each get 7 delegates? Socialism works!

(CNN)Bernie Sanders won the Wyoming Democratic caucuses Saturday, providing his campaign with one more jolt of momentum before the race against Hillary Clinton heads east.

The Vermont senator was favored going into the caucuses. Wyoming is similar to other places he’s won with big margins: rural, Western and overwhelmingly white. The victory is Sanders’ eighth win out of the last nine contests — including a contest that counted the votes of Democrats living abroad — and a big morale booster heading into the crucial New York primary on April 19.
Sanders, speaking at a rally in Queens, New York, when the state’s results were projected, announced the victory to his supporters after his wife, Jane, joined him on stage to say they had won.
“News bulletin: We just won Wyoming,” Sanders said as the room exploded into cheers.
Sanders won 55.7% of the vote to Clinton’s 44.3%, giving each candidate seven delegates. That helps Clinton maintain her pledged delegate lead over Sanders, 1,304 to 1,075.

    I agree….why even make an effort to be a winner, of loser gets same number of delegates.

    Socialism at it’s finest, rewarding the LOSERS.

    Do either one of you know the rules for the WY D party allocation of delegates? Or are you just assuming that this is socialism? I sure am glad neither one of you make life and death decisions.

    Socialism isn’t about the morality of the rules (as we see in N. Korea), it is about equality of result, no matter what the effort.

    That is what we have here. Bernie had popular vote because of better effort and socialists take that away from him and give to Hillary to equalize the result….after all, it’s unfair that Hillary should be punished for losing badly and making poor choices.

    Owen and kev:

    NPR had a great story explaining how WY allocates the D delegates. You guys both missed the mark and shot yourselves in the foot. I hope neither of you handle a gun much with your “shoot first, aim later” mentality.

    And haven’t you learned not to make stupid comments without any basis in fact? You continue to improve on your no-nothing reputation.

    The main thing to remember is that all the candidates knew the rules when they started

    Cruz is now trying to use the rules in his favor) like Donald did when he bankrupted 4 companies .
    Bernie didn’t think he had a chance and was just happy to be able to run in a party he never formally joined

    It’s your blog so I better toe the line. But how are my “antics: worthy of banishment while kevin’s are not? His free speech is more worthy than the truth?

    Sorry, that wasn’t me. It’s someone spoofing me. You’re fine.
