Thousands queued in the cold rain in Albany, the state capital of New York, hoping to make it into the Bernie Sanders rally in the Washington Avenue Armory before the venue reached capacity.

Despite the bad weather, there was a buzz of excitement. The Cider Belly doughnut shop handed out Bernie-themed pastries to the Vermont senator’s supporters to keep spirits up. The crowd jeered the campaign bus of long-shot Republican candidate John Kasich as it passed.

Monday was a busy day for Albany in the US presidential election. Three White House hopefuls visited, campaigning for votes ahead of the crucial New York primary on April 19th.

Four hours after Sanders’s rally and several blocks away, more than 15,000 people filed past the anti-Trump protesters and “Make America Great Again” merchandise vendors into the Times Union Arena to hear Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

Even though Sanders and Trump are ideologically poles apart, they are insurgents in their presidential primaries feeding off a deep public malaise with the political establishment.

But even outsiders have to play the insider’s game and they have grown frustrated at the long-set rules on how presidential nominees are picked. Their grievances fit their campaign messages: they, like the American people, are fighting a rigged system.

“The system, folks, is rigged,” said Trump at Monday night’s rally. “It’s a rigged, disgusting, dirty system.”

The billionaire has won the most states, beating his main rival, Texas senator Ted Cruz. But the chances are increasingly likely that he will fall short of the majority of 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the party’s nomination at the first ballot at the national convention in Cleveland in July.

Cruz has played a better ground game in the past week, showing the effectiveness of his strong political network and grassroots operation by winning delegates at local party elections. It has left Trump, the newbie politician, struggling to build an organisation to match the Texan’s.

The Republican senator swept the board in Colorado last week, winning all of the state’s 34 delegates to the national convention. This increases the chances of neither candidate winning a majority and sending the race to a contested convention and a “floor fight” among delegates.



This just keeps getting better and better.

I gotta say, with how politicians' strategies nowadays seem to be more about shitting on the opposition and less about backing up your actual promises, it's refreshing to see something like this.

Sanders is still behind Clinton in the popular vote, not nearly the same thing Trump is whining about. Trump is just sour that he msy not pull a true majority.

That doesn't sound like defending so much as Trump grabbing at any other example to whine about whatever point he's trying to make. -.-

Tad Devine, Senior Media Advisor for Bernie: "we're not charging that the [system] is unfair"
news anchor: Just to be clear, you don't think the system is corrupt as mr Trump charges.
Tad Devine: "No."

Trump was asserting that the system is rigged and it is. The Superdelgates guarantee Sanders an Unfair fight, while the RNC slips in the delegates they want regardless of the popular vote (And in the case of Colorado, lack of).

Any political insider could tell you this.

So, I guess Sanders isn't sending his organized legion "armies" of protesters to "take away Trump's 1st Amendment rights" at the rallies, then?

(Nope, looks like now, as far as Drumpf is concerned, the only Election Antichrist is Ted Cruz, for wielding "deceptive" convention-delegate processes that have been in place for decades.
Uh, here's a thing you forgot to look up, Don--You don't automatically get to be the candidate if you "win-win-win at the poll numbers", even though most 10-yo.'s would naturally think you do. But, of course, most real senators and governors already knew that.)

When Trump accused Cruz of "using Gestapo tactics" with the delegate mess-up...oh, Don, you don't GET to use Nazi-Germany metaphors.
That's like an event-horizon black hole calling the Orion Nebula "black".

Why are you still using Drumpf? that was already debunked a while ago.

Any political insider or outsider could also tell you its not guaranteeing Sanders anything. Sanders is behind by 2.3 million popular votes as well as behind in delegates. Superdelegates are there to vote for whomever is the most electable in a general and will help the party ( down tickets for example ). As they did when it was Obama vs Hillary. Hillary is currently more electable than Sanders and thus has the majority of superdelegates. While Sanders has been biting the hand that feeds him and then wondering why he can't get a pat on the head from the DNC.

Trump on the other hand is precisely why superdelegates were created. >.>

There's no grand conspiracy against Sanders. Sanders has so far tried to have his cake and eat it too with superdelegates. His campaign has argued both that superdelegates should vote according to how their state voted AND that superdelegates should vote for him in states where Hillary won. He can't have it both ways.

Hillary isn't the Devil and Bernie is no saint. They're both politicians. I'm not sure why anyone thinks Bernie isn't a politician.

Well, unlike the popular 40's myth, Hitler hadn't really changed his name from "Schickelgruber", so guess that's one more thing they have in common...

No, I mean it wasn't even accurate, historically speaking, it's 100% made up.
