Both political parties never expected this and are doing whatever they can to upset the outcome..

    Here's a article that is kinda about what your saying Crazy......

    Democrats Will Learn All the Wrong Lessons From Brush With Bernie | Rolling Stone

    "The twin insurgencies of Trump and Sanders this year were equally a blistering referendum on Beltway politics. But the major-party leaders and the media mouthpieces they hang out with can't see this, because of what that friend of mine talked about over a decade ago: Washington culture is too far up its own backside to see much of anything at all.

    "The maddening thing about the Democrats is that they refuse to see how easy they could have it. If the party threw its weight behind a truly populist platform, if it stood behind unions and prosecuted Wall Street criminals and stopped taking giant gobs of cash from every crooked transnational bank and job-exporting manufacturer in the world, they would win every election season in a landslide."

    I totally agree Sayhey so the thing we have to ask is why they have chosen to do exactly the opposite? They had their perfect candidate (Bernie) and turned their backs on him just about 100%.

    Bernie is a registered and elected Independent that votes with the democrats on most issues.. Bernie is a far to the left socialist.. Much more to the left than the average democrat.. Even during the campaign it has been stated that hillary has had to lean left on many issues that normally she would not have,ex,the TPP, and many more.. The DNC knows they cannot win with Bernie's platform as moderate Democrats would switch to the republican side.. It's a numbers game and both the DNC and the RNC are going to come out as losers.. The AMERICAN people have spoken..

    Many Bernie supporters,myself included,will never vote for Hillary Clinton under any circumstance.The Democratic Party is a 'SMUG' outfit that despises their 'PROGRESSIVE' Base.I think the party will have a surprise come November,and we cannot,under any circumstances,pin this on Bernie Sanders.

    Sanders campaign did one important thing,it showed us what we knew all along,the Democrats hate us and will 'STYMIE' us and our interests every step of the way.They care not one iota for fairness and scoff at the idea that 'LAWS' pertain to them.The ''ELECTION FRAUD'' exposed in this Primary was the icing on the cake,They don't want us? We don't want them,very simple.

    Bernie will do what he has to do.We will always 'RESPECT' and 'ADMIRE' him and his wife Jane,for their Courage,Steadfastness,Honesty,and Decency.The Democratic Party will do what it has to do to undermine the interests of the American People.And WE Sanders supporters? We will each search our own soul,and WE will do what WE think is Right and in the Best Interests of 'REAL' People everywhere.

    Not over Yet!!!!
