Rigged race means Hillary takes more delegates in Bernie’s Wyoming win!

on . Posted in Election 2016

NEW YORK (PNN) - April 9, 2016 - Bernie Sanders won again Saturday - and still lost.

The Vermont senator took ­Wyoming by an impressive 12 percentage-point margin in statewide caucuses, beating Hillary Clinton 56-44 percent.

But under the Democrat Party’s oddball delegate system, Sanders’ winning streak - he has won seven out of the past eight contests - counts for little.

In fact, despite his win, he splits Wyoming’s 14 pledged delegates 7 to 7 under the caucus calculus. Clinton, meanwhile, also gets the state’s four superdelegates - who had already pledged their allegiance to her in January. So despite losing, she triumphs 11-7 in the delegate tally.

Of the 500 superdelegates who have announced whom they’re supporting, 469 say they’re for Clinton.

That makes Sanders’ win in the Cowboy State and in caucuses and primaries across the country little more than a morale boost - and maybe a cruel joke to his ­ardent young supporters.

Meanwhile, both candidates turned their attentions to New York’s April 19 primary, and its trove of 291 delegates.

In city appearances, Clinton shied away from a slice of Junior’s cheesecake and Brooklyn-born Sanders touted his borough bona fides.

“I hope that New York state will help lead this country into the political revolution,” the Vermont senator told a cheering crowd of 700 mostly Hispanic and black voters at the United Palace of Cultural Arts in Washington Heights.

The crowd booed when Sanders said that New York is “Secretary Clinton’s adopted home state.”

“That’s not a crime,” Sanders joked in response.

“So if we can win here, it opens the door to victory to the White House,” he said, saying that a high voter turnout on April 19, when New York’s 291 delegates will be allocated, could vault him past the frontrunner. Current polling averages have Clinton in the lead in New York by 13 points.

“This primary is so critical,” Clinton said at an organizing event that drew about 250 supporters to Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

“We are 2½ million votes ahead [of Sanders], we are on the path to the nomination,” she said. “I need to win big in New York - the sooner I become the nominee, the sooner we can unify the Democrat Party and go after the Republicans full on.”

Actress Susan Sarandon introduced Sanders at a rally of 400 jumping, screaming voters in the Bronx, and actor Kal Penn spoke for him in Washington Heights and at a LaGuardia Community College event in Long Island City.

Midway through his speech there - which drew a rowdy crowd of more than 1,000 - Sanders’ wife, Jane, interrupted him to whisper that the senator had won the Wyoming caucuses.

“The Clinton campaign is getting very nervous because we won seven out of eight of the last contests,” Sanders told the crowd.

“Equality, hope, young hearts. He is for the people who are still dreaming, the young ones,” said Paco Lugovina, 77, of the Bronx.

Lugovina said he has donated $90 to the Sanders campaign in $10 and $15 increments.

The crowds chanted slogans like “We have Bernie Sanders’ back! We don’t need super PACs!” and carried signs. One, waved by a 5-year-old girl, read, “I trust Bernie with my future.”

Kiara Mendez, 47, of Washington Heights, said Sanders’ speech “was beautiful. He says all the truth. We believe in him.”
