To be fair, here’s the GOP side:
The reason I’m sick of that Democratic graphic is because they throw those super delegates in there.
I hate super delegates.
These are the 1% of the Democratic Party, the Wall Street kiss-asses that continue to drive this country into the ground.
If you take away those pampered idiots you’ll get a graphic like this:
That’s a little bit closer, huh?
Remember, the corporate media doesn’t want you to look at it that way.
They also don’t want you to know that super delegates can do whatever the hell they want – they don’t have to vote for Hillary.
Of course, I’m sure she’s bought and paid for them so they have little choice. Their jobs probably depend on it, in fact.
A total of 856 delegates were up for grabs on Super Tuesday, if you throw both parties together.
On March 15 it was 303 more delegates.
That’s a lot of ‘important’ people.
Despite this, those important people can’t convince the regular people to get out and vote.
Oh, if you’re on the GOP side you’ll get out. Democrats, however, are staying home.
That was clear from the very first graphic I put together back in February:
What the hell’s the problem?
On Super Tuesday we had another 12 states vote.
On Tuesday, March 15, we had 5 more states vote, and the turnout came to 7.8 million for the GOP and 6.6 million for the Democrats on that Ides of March.
So far that means 32 states or territories or districts have voted (I might have skipped Puerto Rico) and the turnout looks like this:
That’s right, 15 million for the Democrats and 20 million for the Republicans.
If these were the November results the GOP would win the election by 5 million votes and we’d have Trump as president.
How does that make you feel?
Let’s turn our attention to another aspect of this race.
There are some interesting names that you don’t see the mainstream, corporate media reporting on at all.
For instance, these people are all running for president on the Democratic ticket and have gotten the following votes:
- O’Malley: 94,058
- Uncommitted: 36,913
- R. De La Fuenta: 25,115
- W. Wilson: 11,042
- J. Wolfe: 7,050
- M. Steinberg: 5,926
- J. Valentine: 1,687
- S. Burke: 4,783
- K. Judd: 4,385
- S. Locke: 3,456
- L. Cohen: 2,334
- H. Hewes: 648
- J. Adams: 433
As you can see, there are 12 people there, 13 if you count all the people that don’t feel like voting for any of the people running as a Democrat.
Martin O’Malley continues to rack up votes even though he dropped out on February 1…though sometimes the “no preference” choice gets more than him.
The big one we aren’t hearing about is R. De La Fuenta, who’s been on the ballot in the most states.
Who the hell is that?
It’s Rocky De La Feunta, a businessman from California.
Didn’t hear about him, huh? Yeah, I’m not surprised.
Daily Kos had a bit on him in January, talking about the 20 states he got on the ballot in.
Besides that, don’t expect to hear much – that wouldn’t benefit the Hillary machine.
The real power is Trump, however. Currently he’s trying to coalesce Party support, healing the fractures in the GOP that he helped create.
Still, much of those fractures had been created by the Party years before.
Despite this, Republicans – namely Trump – continue to turn out voters at a 2-to-1 rate over Hillary.
Like I said in recent weeks, Democrats are setting themselves up for a huge loss if they don’t stop and look in the mirror and figure out what the hell the problem is.
For the most part, their message isn’t resonating, at least compared to Trump’s.
Even Bernie Sanders and his anti-Wall Street and free college message isn’t inspiring people to flock to the primaries to vote.
So…what can be done?
