At about 9 pm eastern time, an MSNBC pie chart displayed a very low young person turnout to vote in New Hampshire. Hoping to locate more data tomorrow on this. If our young people do not become active in local, county, state and federal affairs as democrats = Trump types win

I find the results disturbing. In Iowa, Sanders got more votes than Buttigieng but less delegates. In NH Sanders got more votes, but an equal number of delegates. Besides showing that the Dems are, a very anti-democratic Party, it is clear that, unless Sander pulls very far ahead, the DNC will ensure that he is not selected as the Party’s nominee.

I find this disturbing as well.

I was thinking the same thing. Glad you spoke up early. Almost sounds kind of super=ish.

Yep The Private Corporation is still rigging it

They have so far. The Democrats are a very undemocratic party and I am not a fan of most of the voters in that party. Who knows whether or not you can trust the data, but Buttigieg gets 24% of the vote in NH?! What the fuck are people seeing that I am not? Openly corrupt, clearly cheated in Iowa, bad record on race, no experience, and zero black support and a really bad general election candidate. But, the data they put out shows that about a quarter of those that voted like what they saw, even after his disastrous debate performance. No wonder the Democrats can barely beat a horrible Republican Party.

Glad Bernie came in first but am disappointed with the percentage of the vote he won. Looks as though the army of young people didn’t show up in necessary numbers. Also appears that voters generally are a lot more afraid of change than I had hoped. Hope Nevada and South Carolina open up new possibilities, but at thi.s moment, it looks like it will be a brokered convention

Of course that assumes they want to beat a horrible Republican Party. I use to think they did.

Anyway

CONGRATS BERNIE and CREW

The same night Bernie won New Hampshire he was ‘nuked’ in Nevada ahead of the next caucuses: report

It’d be hilarious, were it not so tired, boring… and, oh yeah, they’ve taken away any say we might say in our country, our lives and kid’s future. Looking about for updates, one set of babbling morons had Mayo Pete with twice the vote of Bernie and Klobuchar insurmountably ahead. Didn’t even have to look at the MSNBC logo. They’re now ALL one unifies lying machine. 538 looked like a series of advertisments for Pete and Amy. Our choice, online will soon be swept away in a tsunami of K Street trolls, just like Correct The Record, in 2016… until DNC has re-installed Trump, so he Nancy, Chuck & Yerdel can finish gnawing out the empire’s rotting carcass?

You should research what that author did in 2016 to Bernie. If I remember correctly, he was THE source for the chair throwing claim.

This whole idea of “uniparty” is very real.

Worried along with you – everything is being done to keep Bernie Sanders
from gaining momentum – to create doubts.

MSNBC just gave Chris Matthews like five minutes to recite anti-Bernie sentiments -
his personal feelings rant – and it’s all baloney.

Today on CNN there was movement towards making clear that Bernie Sanders had
swept Iowa with the popular vote – and was headed towards sweeping New Hampshire –
but an AA tried to hold back the tide on making clear that BERNIE would be the likely
winner overall –

Just WHY would AA’s support any other candidate?
Bernie Sanders IS Ralph Nader – RFK – and Tony Benn rolled into one –
Trust that AA’s get it – and will continue to support him. Why not?

And for some reason CNN a while ago couldn’t be viewed - some kind of problem.
What I’ve noticed as they’ve returned is everything is being done to bring the Butts
closer by degrees to Bernie Sanders winning figures.

CORPORATE DEMS NEED A TIE TO STOP BERNIE’S MOMENTUM…

THEY GOT THERE IN IOWA – AND REACHING OR IT IN NH –
AND THEY HAVE TO ACCOMPLISH IT –

But let’s remind ourselves that it is capitalism dying, going down – needing to be ended
as the exploiter of nature and humans, cruel and inhumane.

And it is Democratic Socialism rising –

Turnout:
2008: 265,918
2016: 247,548
2020: 271,498 (with 93% reporting)

Turnout overall was not low.

I still do not believe the Iowa numbers let alone New Hampshire . Like others here I am skeptical of that Buttigieg support. What are they supporting? He has no platform. I think that support is invented.

Klobuchar+Buttigieg> Sanders as far as the percentages go. There going to be a time when one of these two drops out and the scenario created where “All of Klobuchars went to Buttigieg” or vice versa. In other words it ain’t over. Sanders needs even more support and it looks like it the much better informed youth that have to get out there and vote!!

Sanders has to start winning these by double digit points and more or he will be cheated out of the nomination.

That said and on the lighter side. My gut still hurts from laughing but this is good.

In a nutshell, Phred. As Kyle Kulinski has said: “Bernie will need to OVER-win to win.” I fear that is not going to happen and I also fear that this close finale will give “the rat boy” AND “the woman” a boost.

I walked by a friend’s TV tonight, and heard a talking head on PBS saying that, although Bernie was ahead, most of his voters are younger people, and younger people don’t turn out for national elections.
I still haven’t been able to figure out why young people vote in primaries in greater numbers than they do in national elections.
God, these MSM presstitutes are so transparent, if you have a functioning brain.
