A Contested DNC Convention is Unavoidable Now


Many of us are too young to remember what it was like at the famous Chicago convention. There, eight people had organized a protest at the DNC, and that spilled over into a riot. That kind of thing has become a thing of the past. Or has it?

Breitbart reports

Bernie Sanders on Saturday reiterated his vow to keep campaigning all the way to Democratic National Convention, regardless of how the rest of the primaries turn out.

Hillary Clinton will not have the requisite number of pledged delegates to win the Democratic nomination at the end of the nominating process on June 14,” Sanders told reporters in Los Angeles Saturday, according to CNN. “Won’t happen. She will be dependent on superdelegates.”

If this is actually the case in a week, then there could be one more mess for the Democrats. It will most certainly mean a split party. The two sides almost seem irreconcilable. The campaign has become too messy, too dirty.

This would be good news for Trump. He seemed to have been in the same situation just a few months ago. The difference is the superdelegates. People not tied to the popular vote will be deciding who will represent Democrats in the presidential election.

Breitbart continued

“The Democratic National Convention will be a contested convention,” he said.

Sanders criticized the media for accounting for superdelegates when talking about Clinton’s lead in the race, saying that their backing of a candidate is fluid and those who support Clinton now have six weeks before they actually cast their votes.

With everyone talking about Trump/Clinton, is it possible that Clinton would lose her second primary to another nobody-never-been?
