Yeah, donors threw extra money her way and this was the result: a total curb stomp. If I were a big time DNC benefactor, I'd be putting all chips on Bloomberg and Super Tuesday. That's the last chance.

Jonathan Last is the Executive Editor of that site.



So tell me why "liberal" MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd is quoting a distinctly conservative rag and then using it as cover because hey....he's just quoting someone else...right?



Also, while you are at it, look up "gullible."
So that's a "no" to the actual meat of the post, then.

Chris Matthews just compared Bernie's win in Nevada to the Nazi invasion of France.

Steyer qualified for the South Carolina debate, and is polling third there.

This is less defensible than Todd's comments. How stupid can you be?

Now that I finally found the site with the official election results, here is the answer to the question, "What would have happened had Nevada held a primary?"

Going by the final "county delegates" numbers, Nevada's pledged delegates appear to be 24 for Sanders, 9 for Biden, and 3 for Buttigieg.

However, if Nevada had a primary, and the "first preference" votes were used, the pledged delegates would be 21 for Sanders, 9 for Biden, and 6 for Buttigieg.

The main reason for the change: in the statewide vote, Buttigieg got only 14.31% of the county delegates, which is below the 15% he needed to get any of the 13 "statewide" delegates. However, he got 15.35% of the first preference votes, so he would have gotten 3 delegates - 2 from Sanders, and 1 from Biden.
In addition, in the fourth Congressional district, based on county convention delegates, Sanders got 3.57 (rounded to 4) delegates while Biden got 2.43 (rounded to 2), but going by first preference votes, Sanders would have gotten only 3.4 and Biden 2.6, both rounded to 3.

Excellent info; thanks for the update Don.

I'll be pestering my friends who involved with the Democratic Party in Nevada to see if they're gonna change to a primary; I know there's a ton of support already for it.
