Bernie Sanders supporters are livid AP declared Hillary Clinton the party’s presumptive nominee

June 7, 2016

 After the Puerto Rico Democratic primary over the weekend the AP redid the math and determined that Hillary Clinton won enough delegates and superdelegates to be declared the Democratic presumptive nominee. With this happening on the eve of the California primary–where Bernie Sanders had hoped a victory would give him claim to the nomination at a brokered convention–the news did not sit well with the Senator from Vermont’s supporters.

  In fact they are outraged at the media bias, here is more:

Supporters of Bernie Sanders expressed outrage in the hours leading up to Tuesday’s primary elections, upset that The Associated Press and several television networks had already declared rival Hillary Clinton the party’s presumptive nominee.

When the mainstream media calls the polls, calls the election, because they’re already planning to do it to suppress the vote in California, we will fight on,” said Nina Turner, a former Ohio state senator and one of Sanders’ top surrogates.

Morgan Reed, a rafting guide from Mendicino, California, attended the rally and said it was unseemly for the media to call the race for Clinton so close to the start of voting in California, warning that it amounted to “disenfranchising the vote.”

“It’s ridiculous. California is the biggest state in the nation,” she said.

Patrick Bryant of San Francisco, who also attended the Sanders’ rally, said the decision was disappointing: “It’s what bookies do. They call fights before they’re over.”

On Tuesday, the frustration was evident on social media, as angry Sanders’ supporters accused AP and the television networks of stifling voter turnout and relying upon superdelegates who won’t formally cast their vote until the party’s Philadelphia convention in July.

  The Sanders campaign added fuel to the fire by calling this a “rush to judgement.”

Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said the campaign’s job is to convince the superdelegates that the Vermont senator is “by far the strongest candidate against Donald Trump.” He said calling the Democratic contest before superdelegates formally vote at the convention was a “rush to judgment.”

  Bernie SandersWait a minute, the mainstream media has a bias and an agenda?! Who woulda thunk it? Of course we have known this for a long time but the left has always called our concerns paranoid and unfounded but now they are finding out first hand what we have been saying is the truth: the mainstream media is not in the business of reporting the news but rather is in the business of shaping the news. The mainstream media is selling a product and finally some people on the left are not buying it any  more and it is about time.

  And now there are rumors circulating that Hillary Clinton and the AP colluded to get this story out on the eve of the California primary in order for the former Secretary of State to save face in case she loses the Golden State’s primary later tonight…

  Perhaps there is some good news to be taken from this: it is hard at this point to imagine Bernie Sanders’s hardcore supporters are going to be won over to the Clinton camp after feeling as if they have been robbed, and if this finally gets the left to stop listening to the propaganda being spewed by the mainstream media perhaps they will begin to look elsewhere for the truth.

    Surely Lard Ass must have promised to bail out that bankrupt and corrupt macrocosm of our democrat controlled mainland cities, counties and states. Moe Ginsberg propably promised a five year plan to grow bananas.

    I look forward to the results tonight. A not so secret wish that Jersey feels the Bern and gives it to him. The other states could chip in as well!

    BS should have been able to guess something like this was going to happen. CA has always had a presidential election problem. In Nov the MSM will declare a winner before the polls are closed in CA. It is stupid and unfair to the voters in CA, but CA has apparently never attempted to rectify the problem. Why hold the primary in June in the first place? The pressure has been on BS to drop out by the Hilliaryites. They don’t want to be embarrassed by a lose in CA.

      You would think the state would move its primary up, I don’t understand whey they haven’t done it yet.

    Saw this on Jim Stone’s site – might find it interesting:
    Diebold magic cinches it for Hillary
    Need I say more? Maybe two things – I am certain Hillary will enjoy victory while receiving less than 15 percent of the votes, and she did collude with the MSM to announce her victory long before people even started voting. She got 30 percent fewer votes than last time around even with Diebold spiking it for her.
    If I said anything more appropriate regarding this topic, the secret service would have to get on an airplane and pay a visit. Rigged elections …
    The article you posted and this note shows why Hilly still has her composure and upbeat attitude – knowing no matter what, it’s been promised to her.

      There is no doubt in my mind she colluded with the AP and they were a willing partner. I also believe she has been chosen already and she knows that nothing will happen to her and that is why she is not worried at all.
