By the way the official Iowa democratic party has not assigned one last delegate even as we speak — basically they suspended that part of the process for the recount or whatever. And that is the real problem that allowes Pete to continue to lie and pretend he won. Basically what happened in lots and lots of precincts was that the local captains constantly took the wrong number of voters to divide by the delegates that needed to be assigned to after the realignment vote was cast. Instead of dividing delegates among the remaining caucus goers at the end of the process they mistakenly or fraudulently counted the initial number of caucus goers — including the ones who voted only once and then went home (people went home after the first Alignment because it took a lot of hours to wait for the second vote and so on). By doing so the captains constantly ended up having to allocate surplus delegates (since they constantly had less people to allocate to in reality so the extra delegates were "distributed" among the presidential candidates that basically didin't earn it — usually the captains spread it around to the ones who were viable (the top two). This is where the corruption occured: the captains simply flooded Buttigieg a lot more surplus delegates that wouldn't exist if they had calculated the correct total amount of people. That is fundamentally how and why mister gay-obama, despite having massively less votes in BOTH first round and second round/realignment votes — miraculously ended up with the same amount of delegates as Bernie — or actually currently one more delegate total than Bernie. That is the core fraud. And this mess is essentially baked-in into the Iowa system. It all takes one guy or girl (the precienct captain) to be either incompetent or corrupt. That fraud will occur even if everytthing else (like for example the shady Pete-paid app) had been correctly functioning. In other words caucuses are inherently flawd. If the captain counts the wrong total voter number who's gonna correct him in the real world unless the others (party reps) present know the rules in minute detail AND have the strength in character to question his method?

Today's Quinnipiac poll.
Sanders 25
Biden 17
Bloomberg 15
Warren 14
Buttigieg 10
Klobuchar 4

After NH Warren withdraws, endorses Sanders and it's game over.

Anyone who thinks Warren will endorse Bernie is just wrong. Here's a refresher on how Warren has wronged Bernie in this primary:

1. She lied about Bernie telling her personally that a woman cannot be president, which was a failed attempt to label Bernie as a sexist.
2. In the last Democratic debate, Warren said that only she and Klobuchar were the only two candidates who didn't take money from billionaires, which Bernie responded to by shaking his head.

Warren is in with the elites and takes campaign advice from Hillary Clinton, who derided Obama and Bernie's supporters as Obama boys and Bernie bros, which never really existed. Clinton is almost certainly the one who told Warren to label Bernie as a sexist. Bernie had considered making Warren his VP, but Warren has shown her true colours, and she's a lying liability, so it's just Bernie versus the Democratic establishment again.

And if Bernie makes it to the finals, I am pretty sure some good part of Demparty would happily cut a deal with Trump against Bernie.
They hate Trump, but Trump is just too boorish, that's all they really hate about him. That he doesn't make a cut to their aristocratic level. But to establishment? He is not that dangerous.

I kind of have trouble understanding, how getting a quarter of the vote qualifies as "victory".

Two consecutive primaries won by Sanders, not a bad start for him.
Didn't Mayor Cheat win Iowa? I see 13 delegates for him and 12 for Sanders.

It was a bad start for Bernie, he should have more delegates.

Btw, Cheaty Pete's organiser Emily Goldman will be Voter Protection Director at Nevada.

According to bookies odds Bloomberg is drifting in and now the clear second fave behind Sanders and he is yet to enter the race. Bizarre.
Yeah, they're saying Cheat will perform much worse on most States but I doubt that, most of the big money and the media are on him. Unless he's just a tool to steal delegates from Bernie until Bloomberg starts to roll for real. Let's wait and see.

Not that bizarre. Bloomberg has already spent hundreds of $millions and will spend whatever it takes ($billion+ ??). That kind of money buys you top-notch staff (800 staffers already & ramping up) and saturation-level advertising. Currently third in the Real Clear Politics polling average, Bloomberg's numbers keep improving.

He has directed all his money & efforts to Super Tuesday. If he does decently well on March 3, watch out. The way the Dem primaries are structured with its partial allocation of delegates vs. the GOP's winner-take-all system, it's very hard for a candidate to seal up the nomination if another candidate keeps placing a strong second. If Bernie & Bloomberg go to a brokered convention, Bloomberg takes it because the Dem Establishment doesn't want a radical socialist atop the ticket and because the party knows that Bloomberg will all too gladly spend $billions if necessary to win the White House.
