#BernieOrBust – Yuge cash haul, leading WI, eyes on NY

#BernieOrBust – Yuge cash haul, leading WI, eyes on NY

No wonder Hillary is so sick.

Hillary’s “I am so sick” rant yesterday is understandable.

The lady is under pressure. Not only are the feds circling her, Bernie just announce a huge March cash haul. The NY Times reports:

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont raised $44 million in March, his campaign announced Friday, beating his previous best monthly haul.

The strong fund-raising numbers followed a string of victories in Democratic voting contests last week in Idaho, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii. They also hint at the seemingly limitless well of small dollars that Mr. Sanders has been able to tap, even as his chances of winning enough delegates to take the Democratic nomination appear to be waning. Should the Democratic front-runner, Hillary Clinton, post a lower number, it would be the third consecutive month that Mr. Sanders raised more money than the former secretary of state.

What this means is that Bernie is not going to leave the race anytime soon. He has the cash to hang on, and more important, the fundraising reflects increased confidence that Bernie, not Hillary, is The One.

Moreover, Bernie is leading in Wisconsin polling, and is even setting his sites on the NY State April 19 primary. A win in Wisconsin will add to Bernie’s momentum during a quiet two-week primary period.

Bernie trails in the NY polls by a lot, but the polling is rather thin (surprisingly). , but the state is not winner-take-all, so he could pick up delegates if he does well.

Bernie just held an enormous rally in his hometown of NYC:

Bernie Sanders headed to his hometown of New York City Thursday, ahead of New York State’s April 19 primary, and addressed more than 18,500 people at St. Mary’s Park in the Bronx.

The venue was overflowing with attendees, many of whom spilled over into an adjacent baseball field. Some Sanders supporters hoping for a glimpse of the Vermont senator-turned-Democratic presidential hopeful even climbed trees and fanned out on hillsides.

If Bernie wins NY State by some minor miracle, it would change everything:

Bernie Sanders kicked off his New York campaign with a rally in the heavily Hispanic South Bronx area of New York City on Thursday night, telling the crowd he’d win the presidency if he secures a victory in the state on April 19.

“If there is a large voter turnout, we will win,” Sanders said to loud cheers. “And if we win here in New York, we are going to make it to the White House!”

There also is a growing “Bernie or Bust” movement — the Democratic equivalent for Hillary of #NeverTrump.

The #BernieOrBust movement has liberal media writers like Charles Blow apoplectic, ‘Bernie or Bust’ Is Bonkers:

This position is dangerous, shortsighted and self-immolating.

If Sanders wins the nomination, liberals should rally round him. Conversely, if Clinton does, they should rally round her.

This is not a game. The presidency, particularly the next one, matters, and elections can be decided by relatively small margins.

No wonder Hillary is sick.

“The lady is under pressure.”

What could be more appropriate to that theme…

    Rags, what is it with you? 😯 Now I have another song stuck in my head “driving me crazy!” 😆

Oh! It was bad enough when Bush stole the election from Gore, now even Democrats are stealing from each other. I’m going to enjoy this election cycle.

Bernie Sanders = George McGovern.

Remember hitlery was consistently dropping in likability ratings when she was more available to be seen early on in the campaign. Will it continue as she’s forced to become more available to the people and press?
We can only hope.
And looking at Sanders with that lousy posture and imagining him negotiating against BLM, ISIS, Russia, China or anyone who threatens us makes obongo look absolutely resolute in comparison.
Pathetic how far we’ve fallen.

“The lady is under pressure.”
I know ladies. Hillary Clinton is no lady.

He has the cash to hang on, and more important, the fundraising reflects increased confidence that Bernie, not Hillary, is The One.

Confidence—or desperation? An easily-quantifiable measure—like money—is a poor proxy for a more difficult variable—like votes. If fundraising told anything approximating the real story, Jeb! would be the clear Republican frontrunner.

While it’s true that one needs a lot of money to run a national campaign, it doesn’t follow even more money will buy the election, or even buy a stronger campaign. The notion that American elections automatically go to the rich is an idea which dies hard—particularly with all the leftoid propaganda after the Citizens United decision. But die it should. It just doesn’t correlate well with historic reality.

There also is a growing “Bernie or Bust” movement — the Democratic equivalent for Hillary of #NeverTrump.

Hardly.

“Bernie or Bust” is the upstarts trying to overturn the apple cart.

“Dump Trump” is the apple cart trying to run over the upstarts.

That’s not “equivalence”, it’s “antithesis” or “polar opposition”.

Zacchaeus climbed a sycamore tree for Bernie to see.

Bernie said, Zacchaeus come down for I going to you house for tea.

When will we see a NeverHillary movement in the Democrat party?
