Wall Street’s darling received more votes than Bernie Sanders in the New York primary, 58 to 42 percent. The Democratic establishment wants us to believe that Bernie has no chance to win the primary now, but that’s not true. It ain’t over, til it’s over, and it ain’t over.
Clinton won 139 delegates to Bernie’s 108 last night. This doesn’t count the 36 super delegates who committed to Hillary, and which the establishment uses to dissuade grassroots campaigns such as Bernie’s. However, it is highly unlikely those super delegates will remain committed to Hillary should Bernie win more delegates by a vote of the people. Should they remain committed to the Wall Street candidate, that would likely mark the end of the Democratic Party since it could no longer be called Democratic. A sizable people’s party would likely emerge from the rump of the Democratic party at that point.
Clinton still has only 1428 delegates to Bernie’s 1151, leaving Clinton with a 267 delegate margin. There are still 1472 delegates to be voted on, and Clinton may not get to that magic number of 2382 to win. Bernie’s looking good in California, and if he wins that one state by the same margin that Hillary won New York, then much of her total lead melts away.
If Bernie winds up with more delegates by votes than Clinton, in a brokered convention, which in likely, then Bernie will likely win. That means we win and Wall Street loses.
