This is some confusing stuff.


Did Bernie Sanders Win Nevada? 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Bernie Sanders won Nevada Saturday after county conventions took the win from Hillary Clinton. The Clinton and Sanders campaigns clashed at Nevada county conventions, and Sanders walked away with three county wins, including Clark County where Clinton had originally won the vote. This means that although Clinton got more votes on caucus day, Sanders will end up with more delegates.

The Clark County convention was filled with drama, including rumors that Sanders delegates were told not to show up and others being threatened with arrest. In the end, more delegates voted for Sanders than Clinton, flipping the results of Clark County, which includes Las Vegas. It’s unclear at this time exactly how many new delegates Sanders is picking up from Nevada, since delegates are unbound until the state convention, but he definitely won some today.​

IMO Sander's does have more support nationally than Hillary.

Her wins in the Southern primaries is more reflective of the Southern antipathy to the word "socialist" which they link with "Communist." I was not surprised at her success there. However, this antipathy does not exist in the rest of the country.

I expect him to do well in all the northern, central, and western primaries. I don't think he is down for the count yet.

Ron Paul supporters faced the same thing. We took over the entire Nevada caucus. But who cares, Hillary and the entire DEM establishment along with the media have been playing dirty politics since literally before the primary season started. Even the initial Nevada caucuses were dirty with union employees, under the supervision of their bosses, being pressured to support Hillary. Nothing Bernie's team did at the caucuses were dirty. They were simply passionate, and that's something Hillary's supporters are completely lacking in.

I think the african american voters in the south is what did him in and they listen to James Clyburn and John Lewis... rightfully so. They both endorsed Hillary.

My beef? I don't care who gains out of this tactic. It was shady as hell. My beef is the apparent attempt to mislead delegates so that they wouldn't show up to do their democratic duty. Frankly I don't see how anyone could possibly NOT have a beef with this crap.

Okay... so here's what happened. It's an interesting read.

https://pivotamerica.com/bernie-sanders-wins-nevada-caucus/

Angie Sullivan one of the members of the credentials committee said: “We caught the Hillary campaign cheating, we caught the Nevada Democratic Party secretary cheating..When it was apparent Bernie started winning, they really turned up the heat.”

According to Sullivan the CCDP was emailing data to the Hillary Clinton campaign but keeping the Sanders campaign out of the loop, so Sullivan took it into her own hands to copy the email correspondence with CCDP officials and Clinton campaign officials to the Sanders campaign.

Mark E. Elias the attorney for the Clinton campaign made a different claim, and threatened Chris Miller and demanded that she have Christine Kramer removed from the credentials committee for sharing sensitive information belonging to team Clinton with team Sanders.

When Kramer brought out the party bylaws and reminded the Clinton campaign and CCDP officials, CCDP attempted to remove Kramer as chair by calling an executive session.

The day of the convention the CCDP called in the police and tried to remove Christine Kramer from the premises. At that time all four members of the credentials committee even the two Hillary Clinton supporters linked arms as a sign of protest and sat in the middle of the convention floor.

This win means that Bernie Sanders has won all of the caucus states, except Iowa where there was a tie.​

So...Sanders won. You're upset about something that occurred that was ineffectual? I'm not so sure that was true, anyway, since it was reported by the Sanders campaign, as opposed to an objective source. Here's a different take on what happened: "Serial cheater Bernie Sanders tried to retroactively steal Nevada from Hillary Clinton today"

Well that article schmacked of non-objective bias. The one I linked to at least had the input of the officials on the floor in the midst of the fight.
