Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

No, what I am referring to is that, repeatedly, Sanders has to get at least 55% of the popular vote to even break even on the elected delegates. Some states were worse. This doesn't, as best as I can tell, even involve the 'super-delegates'. Then there is the anything but evenhanded approach of the DNC, the debate schedule. DNC failure to contest any Republican manipulations that disproportionately affected Sanders, as in Arizona, etc. Then there is the fact that CA registered independents had to know to ask for a Democratic absentee ballot in order to get a ballot that included the presidential race, even though independents are allowed to vote in the Democratic primary, and the same thing probably applies if they vote in person on Tuesday. Newly registered Sanders voters, especially those who register independent, just somehow face an obstacle course not there for Clinton voters.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere." (But it helps!)
