Before and during the vote, the media polls had the democratic candidates neck and neck.
Sanders final rally in Brooklyn was said to be 128,000. He had the youth vote,the men's vote, the white vote ,the women's vote.... and everything else in sight except, apparently, the winning vote.
Over and over and over again it was repeated ....Voters don't like Hillary... don't trust the Clintons...She's a poor candidate...has no passion and runs a lack-luster campaign.
I,054,000 New Yorkers liked Hillary well enough to support her with a vote.
763,000 liked Sanders well enough.
The Senator raised $40 million in small donations in March. He has $14 million left. So...he spent $26
million to win the votes in New York. He whipped his youthful followers into a negative frenzy .They threw money at Hillary's cavalcade the day before the vote. Easy come ...easy go, I guess. He seems to bring it in without much effort and throw it away just as thoughtlessly.
If he doesn't win the nomination, the media speculate, his supporters may stay home in the general election.
Bernie said 3 million were refused the right to vote for the nominee of the Democratic Party. They were not registered Democrats. They were Independents. Like himself. It may be why he feels free to criticize the Democratic Party. Not so clear is why he thinks he should be their nominee while promising a
3 million Independents from one State is probably enough to form a new party and start a revolution. They could call themselves United Empire Loyalists and pay foreign mercenaries to fight for the cause. It might be more useful than throwing money at cars driving past in the street.
The same New York pool of voters gave the Belligerent Billionaire, the "authentic " one, he who enjoys popularity and passion because "he tells it like it is " ...they are all liars and crooks and murderers and rapists and terrorists and he won the day with half the votes Hillary did and less than Bernie
Now that ws a feat fit for a billionaire..
In votes, Sanders, the Cuban-type, Brooklyn,Jewish revolutionary beat the Billionaire but I don't think he was much comforted by the victory.
Now those two could join forces and be a force to be reckoned with. They could probably easily succeed in cutting their joint vote in half by telling it like it is . They could write a revolutionary song and set it to music from the best little whore house in Texas.
I know of a grand piano they could borrow.
