Puerto Rico is holding their Democratic Party primary today and true to form, MSNBC called it for Hillary Clinton long before the polls ever opened. The only question they ask is “how close will the primary get Killary to the magic number?”
Puerto Rico has 60 delegates up for grabs. The MSM pretends Hillary only needs 60 delegates to cinch up the nomination but that’s not true. At current count, Hillary has 1,776 delegates while Bernie holds 1,501. Those are pledged delegates, won by the various caucuses and primaries held so far this year. We all know Hillary’s campaign machine has stolen a number of votes and suppressed likely Sanders voters along they way to achieve that slight lead but there it is none-the-less.
The slight of hand employed by the corporate media involves “superdelegates” and who they claim to support. Since they don’t actually vote until the Democratic Party convention in July, Hillary wont have “won” anything until then. There are only 895 delegates still up for grabs in the primaries and neither she nor Bernie will win enough of them to claim the nomination outright. She needs something like 67% of the votes to win that number and he needs about a 100%.
Puerto Rico’s Democratic Party is run by a rabid long-time Hillary supporter named Roberto Prats.
Back in April, Prats said that Hillary’s ascension to the throne was a “given” and that Bernie should drop out of the race.
The Sanders campaign has leveled some charges against the establishment Dems in Puerto Rico and Prats specifically. They say they have made it harder to register prisoners in Puerto Rico to vote today.
This is par for course. Voter suppression has been a big part of Hillary’s “wins” in New York and Arizona so far and it seems like the winning formula is being repeated in Puerto Rico and not just with prisoners.
Back in 2012 there were 2,300 polling places for the Democratic Party primary. In early May of this year, Prats and his “Hillary-backing” party promised they would have at least 1,500 for today.
Well, there are a total of 430 polling locations open today and they are only open from 8 am to 3 pm. Some 700,000 people are expected to try to vote at those few locations. Do the math. That’s 1628 voters per polling location for 7 hours at something close to 232 voters per hour. That isn’t going to happen.
