Think Bernie Sanders Won The New Hampshire Primary? Think Again

I mean you might think getting 60 percent of the vote is a win.

Not if you're a Democrat. When Bernie says the system is corrupt as least as far as the Democratic Party is concerned he's right. Its designed to thwart any interloper.

National Democratic delegate count, Clinton can still afford to be gracious because of the Super Delegate hill in front of Bernie.

Now on the Republican side its much more fair, although losers with a few delegates can give them to whomever they choose. By the end of the process its possible that they might be able to veto a Trump nomination if the margin is close enough and all the losers cast their delegate's votes against Trump. Depends on how far Trump is ahead by the convention and how many delegates the rest of the field can snatch up.

1 Hey Bernie,
So you went out and worked your ass off. You earned the majority of delegates using your wits and the sweat off your brow.
Now some political agency comes in and takes the delegates YOU earned and gives them to some Fat, Pants Suit Wearing ,Taxpayer Supported Zero

Ain't Socialism a wonderful thing?

2 It is pretty obvious that Dillary is on the nose with voters so I hope the democrats give her all the delegates she needs so the voters can then let them know just how they feel about the establishment over riding the will of the people, even if they are only democrat voting people. The Trumpster with a clear majority in both houses will be something to behold.

3 Why should Bernie be mad about this? They are applying his socialist principles. He is now the equivalent of a "one percenter" of delegate holders, so they applied a 90% tax on his delegate assets and redistributed them to a needy, underprivileged, gender-biased-inequality-suffering candidate.

4 Maybe "Feeling The Bern" mean:
That moment when you work so hard for something...Only to have it taken away and given to an Unemployed Fat Woman who wear Pants Suit.

5 And if the Super Delegate thing isn't enough, they'll just create the Super Super! Delegates.

@Arawak: That was beautiful, it brought a tear of pride to my eye. Who does that white privileged patriarch think he is anyway...hopefully you won't mind if I just, umm, appropriate that and redistribute it, because, you know, I need to spreed that sort of wealth around. :)
