Actually, to be fair, there's still some hope for him. We might yet get a Trump/Christie ticket, and if Trump wins, then maybe Trump gets impeached, and then BOOM! -- President Christie.


Well, yes. I mean, his sudden glomping on to Trump in hopes of a VP nod is one of the saddest displays this election. Which is really saying something. But now we watch as he realizes what he has done. As the light of hope slowly dims in his eyes and the panic sets in.

Sanders' wins are more depressing than his losses (most are southern states after all) since the superdelegates seem to be in Clinton's camp and so dead set against Sanders; seeing how the superdelegates are affecting the delegate count in those states, ugh... -__-


Sanders was way too late to the party in going for the black and minority votes. I doubt the super delegates are going to end up being a deciding factor here.

Super delegates likely won't matter. With all the Democratic primaries being proportional, it won't be enough for Sanders to just win states the rest of the way; he needs to completely dominate just to overtake Clinton in pledged delegates.

I was specifically pointing out how the superdelegates voted in states he won rather than the primaries as a whole, New Hampshire back in February and Colorado yesterday being the best examples (and Minnesota looked similar earlier when I checked before going to sleep late last night).

...Yes? And I was just pointing out that superdelegates are unlikely to be a factor when all is said and done.
