Say it with me: Brokered Convention! ?

UndercoverSpez 25 points ago

Does this help with that?

BlueSaltMiner [S] 35 points ago

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

Best Twitter comment: "His followers might feel rear ended by this."

First they prop him up (go watch the video of the crazy Iowa coin flip where a guy literally turns the coin over in his hand), and now they told him to leave.

Makes you wonder what they promised or threatened.

Mike0xquitelong 20 points ago

Apparently he thought it was too much of a pain in the ass, bringing up the rear all the time.

Plus he was trailing in the campaign race.

westrock2000 9 points ago

There had been rumors of trouble in the campaign and that he was up to his elbows in shit. But I felt he always had so much energy, he was always ball deep to rekt ‘em

I remember hearing that when clinton ran in 2016. What does brokered convention mean?

35
rageous 35 points ago

It means they choose who will win instead of the constituents choosing... AKA they steal it.

rickscarf 20 points ago

It's when nobody has enough bound delegate votes to seal the deal on the first round of voting. Those bound delegates are released to vote for whoever they want on subsequent rounds, and lots of backroom deals go on. It is entirely possible someone who hasn't even been in the race could be nominated from the floor, although unlikely.

Check out the last season of Veep, expertly shown the process. The whole episode is them running around the arena from green room to green rom cutting deals

I actually see liberals lamenting that Republicans are more democratic for honoring the people's wish and selecting Trump. I double checked to be sure, but Trump had 70% of the delegates, Cruz was second with around 20%. The party would have committed suicide in choosing anyone else.

Bernie is frankly speaking not that popular in their party. He scares the moderates, and will be lucky to have 40/50% support by the end.

ImperialxWarloed 14 points ago

Damn. I thought he’d stay in it a bit longer. I want them to stay in as long as possible to create a brokered convention.

20
BlueSaltMiner [S] 20 points ago

This is better. As Pete his voters won’t go Bernie, they’ll join Biden or Bloomberg. Pete wouldn’t get 15% in most states Tuesday, so their votes would go to waste. Now the voters join Biden and Bloomberg, increasing their chances to get 15% and get delegates. It is the Democrat swamp that probably pushed him to drop out prior to Super Tuesday and I am sure the Bernie Bros are angry.

KilroyJCNJ 18 points ago

The weird thing about that is Pete is probably as big a Commie as BolshieBernie, but hides it much better. Pete’s father was president of The Gramsci Society, which supports and promotes Hard-core Marxism.

Pete is a Red Diaper Baby.

He’s obviously not a commie like Bernie, he used to admire him yeah but he’s moved to a slightly more rational position.

He could have made bigger gains with the people by bending over backwards, but apparently it was a direction he wasn’t willing to go.

Sealith 4 points ago

I honestly thought he was Dems best shot at countering Trump in the election and now he's gone. Now I can't even think how how any of the remaining members have a chance. Maybe Biden but even the Democrats don't seem to like him as much anymore.

1

Bernie is the biggest threat to trump in a general. Biden will be a fucking cakewalk.

FUN FACT: Under the new DNC rules, delegates from candidates who've dropped out can now pledge themselves to whomever they're told to.

Interesting. I was looking for that info earlier today but DNC rules are a massive clusterfuck so I couldn't find it.

As far as vanity campaigns go, Buttgag's was pretty successful. I wonder what the DNC used to bribe him to get out. I guess they are going full steam ahead with Creepy Joe.

Damn, and I just figured out how to pronounce his name.

Weird, he seemed like the safest pick Dems could make at a brokered convention

They're saving him for 2024. Getting his name out there, pulling him put before DJT gets on him and ruins him forever.
