While the Sunday’s headline proclaims “after a night of sweeping victories Bernie’s back”, it might still be advisable to look at the article from the previous day, which states, that despite Sanders victories in Hawaii, Washington state and Alaska, Hillar Clinton is still very much the frontrunner.
Why this is so has become even clearer as, in addition to the very undemocratic “superdelegates” issue, another simliary undemocratic obstacle has been put in Bernie’s way and after his victories in the West “the next states to vote range along the north-east and through New England, including Clinton’s home state of New York”.
The question, of course, might be, What is so “undemoctratic” about that? Well, the same article informs us these will be “closed” primary elections, which don’t exclude independent voter participation. Another major disadvantage for Sanders, “who has won unaffiliated voters by huge margins in open primaries” , then.
The evidence would indeed seem to suggest that by hook or by crook it is not going to be Bernie, even if that means them throwing a coin to make sure.
