    I agree. Just poorly trying to say that in these cases the left is focused on being the progressive party to break barriers which decreases their chances of winning. And I agree with breaking barriers but you can’t force it.

    So Bernie has more votes so far than Pete but Pete has more delegates? Should there not be outrage?

    You say that in jest, but that would put a whole lot more stock into the popular vote argument, especially this year - let the popular vote winner from the Democrats be your nominee.

    Our whole Presidential election process is borked. But, that is what you get when you are the first out of the gate on something way back in 1787.

    Why is it not that way already for them? Do they control that?

    I wouldn't be opposed to a popular vote for the primary, but it's probably a challenge when they have caucuses and other goofy types of formats for determining delegates.

    I don't want popular vote but I wish it wasn't winner take all either for a states delegates.

    I've said each congressional district should be one elector vote, and the winner of the state gets the other two.

    I think that's reasonable. People forget that it didn't start out as winner takes all either.

    Aren't most of the primaries proportional in awarding delegates?

    I still dislike the idea of giving votes by congressional district as it still allows for disproportionate vote value.

    But a true democracy isn't desirable either. Plus we should add to the number of congressional districts to 30-50 thousand per district.

    I think it's a good happy medium between the two ends.

    James Carville fired back at Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for calling him "a political hack," calling the self-described democratic socialist "a communist."

    The back and forth follows a week in which Carville has repeatedly sounded the alarm about a potential Sanders match-up against President Trump in November, calling the scenario "the end of days" for the Democratic Party while referring to Sanders supporters as "a cult."

    I'm still not convinced the mefium should disregard the idea of one person, one vote, though.

    Pure democracy isn't a good thing.

    Personally, I'd rather see the 17th repealed than a straight popular vote for the president.
