Say it with me: Brokered Convention! ?

Does this help with that?

Yes. Candidates need 15% to get delegates. Without Pete, chances are higher that Bloomer and Biden get >15%, thus getting more delegates, thus higher chance Bernie stays <50%

So, how then does this process choose the nominee?

No one knows for sure, but it won’t help their argument about getting rid of the electoral college and “every vote matters”.

Don't worry, the majority of their base will forget a week after it happens.

If the DNC wanted to convince its base to support the electoral college and to believe that they always supported it and that it was only those evil right wingers who ever opposed it... it would only take about two weeks to pull off. These people are so demoralized they will accept whatever nonsense they're told

You can see it happening in real time with censorship and PC backlash. They are slowly starting to try to claim that they are the ones who who were being censored and they are the ones who fought back against it. Within a year or so the narrative will be that right wingers somehow colluded with social media to censor people and enforce PC and it was only thwarted by the noble, freedom-loving left wingers

Yeah we do know.... okay.. candidates gain delegates depending on how well they preform. In 2016 the DNC also gave out "Super-Delegates" Super-Delegates are the people who run the democratic party. They are the Establishment/The swanp of the DNC. They are all people who pretty much work in it. They can choose whoever they want. They used to give out a set number at each primary spot. So in each state a candidate would get delegates based on how well they did and they would also get Super-delegates based on nothing. Super delegates could go to any candidate they choose pretty much. Thats the only way Hillary had more delegates than Bernie. He won the majority of american voter delegates but lost pretty much all the Super Delegates. After the backlash they recieved in 2016 for what they did to Bernie they decided to change the rules for this election and so now Super-Delegates will only come into play if it becomes a brokered convention and goes to a 2nd ticket. The DNC has been saying that Super Delegates are nothing to worry about and they will not pick the nominee bc there has never had to be a 2nd ticket before. Lol (this is how Bernie will be screwed again) At the DNC comvention Bernie will have the majority of delegates but will not have enough to not cause a brokered convention. So when they go to the second ticket, Joe Biden will become the nominee bc he will get basically ALL the super delegates and will beat Bernie. Remember Super Delegates are ALL establishment party insiders and will be going to Joe. This is the DNC controls who their nominee is. Whatever the case... it's a win-win for us. If Bernie somehow wins... It will be the easiest election ever against a socialist. The first time he debates Tump he's done. If/When Joe wins it will be clearer than ever to everyone that Bernie has gotten fucked over for the 2nd time in a row and it will cause so much division that all his young people will not turn out to vote
