I’m sick of @DNC fuckery too. But even if it were not in play, I think it’s clear that @TheDemocrats will never be our party. We need to come up with another plan. #SuperTuesday #SuperTuesdayResults https://t.co/xPnjDcBSiY

Looks like DNC handed Super Tuesday states to Biden by classic voter suppression technique of removing machines from precincts with young voters who favor Bernie, resulting in discouraging 4-6 hour lines.

As of the time I looked, Bernie Sanders had won Vermont, Colorado, Utah, and California, hauling in 322 delegates, so far. Michael Bloomberg is having trouble clearing the 15 percent threshold but had won 44 delegates. Elizabeth Warren won Maine, so far for 42 delegates. I didn’t even realize Tulsi Gabbard was still in the race; she had won one delegate. Joe Biden had won the rest, for 399 delegates, so far. 536 delegates remain to be awarded.
Bernie Sanders is on his way to defeat in his second attempt to win this party’s nomination. We need to take the hint: The neoliberal party will never be a progressive party.
As for the rest, Elizabeth Warren, Michael Bloomberg, and Tulsi Gabbard should just bow out. They have no hope.
