Insiders to Bernie: Don’t take the fight to Philly - POLITICO

Sanders, who trails in the delegate race by a wide margin, should end his campaign before the final primary on June 14 in the District of Columbia. Another 39 percent said the Vermont senator should continue campaigning through the D.C. primary, but end his campaign immediately after if he trails Clinton in pledged delegates — which is likely given Sanders’ current deficit of 277 pledged delegates after Clinton’s resounding victory in New York this week.

Only 1 in 10 Democratic insiders said Sanders should try to woo superdelegates to help him overtake Clinton on the convention floor in Philadelphia if he finishes the primary season trailing in pledged delegates, as campaign manager Jeff Weaver suggested Tuesday night in a televised interview.

Approx 21 Democratic primaries yet to vote.

Scratch that. If the party insiders are telling Sanders not to take the fight to Philly, then he absolutely needs to take it to the limit. The insiders have done everything possible to stack the deck in Hillary's favor and they're pulling this stunt too? This nonsense flips my opinion 180 degrees. I thought that if he losses in Penn then he should drop, but now I hope he never stops. To hell with this party insider nonsense.

Yeah, that's it, it is the insiders who went into people's homes, made them come out and vote in overwhelming numbers for Clinton over Sanders. You so got it figured out.

Remember when people used to accept responsibility for their mistakes? Now it isn't that Sanders does not appeal to as many people as Clinton, and has not ran as effective a campaign as Clinton, it is the evil boogiemen that have screwed him over.

You're becoming unhinged. Did I say anything other than the deck was stacked against Sanders? That's all. Take a Xanax.

You offered excuses as to why Sanders is failing, instead of accepting the truth, which is that more primary voters prefer Clinton.

Legitimately curious: are you of the opinion that Clinton's relative success is entirely due to her platform and campaign, and owes nothing to disproportionate and skewed media coverage, or other external elements?
