RIGGED? Texas Democrats Warn of Iowa-Style Mishaps to Come in Their State’s Upcoming Primary

Changes have been made in Texas that are expected to cause problems.

The unprecedented disaster that is still ongoing in Iowa after their caucus ended in disarray on Monday may not be an isolated incident for the Democrats.

Texas Democrats are warning that their state’s upcoming primary on Mar. 3 could undergo similar problems because of how they changed the manner in which they report their results from the last time around.

The Texas Democratic Party was recently informed by the Texas Secretary of State’s office that they will be unable to provide the numbers to allocate a majority of the state’s 228 delegates on the night of the primary. With a close race expected and Texas being such a delegate-rich state, this impending fiasco could blow Iowa’s out of the water.

State election officials have told Texas Democrat officials that their new reporting system has serious limitations, and it may take days to determine who is the actual winner of the primary. Nobody knows for sure what will be done to the votes during the lengthy deliberative process, and how it will effect the integrity of the primary vote.

Texas’ presidential primary is scheduled to take place on Super Tuesday. They will hold their primary simultaneously with the states of Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Democrats Abroad, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia. It is the day that ultimately could decide the Democratic nominee and may ultimately be besieged with reporting concerns.

Because of the complex new reporting systems, the state will only be able to collect data at the county level on the first night. They will need additional data from the senatorial district and precinct levels in order to tally who gets 149 of the state’s available delegates. This could take days to accomplish, the state has reportedly told Democrat Party officials.

Democrat officials are already blaming the Republican-led state government for the problems that will likely arise from this complicated new system.

“Texas is more important to presidential campaigns than ever before and could make or break campaigns. With one of the largest delegations, in one of the most diverse states in the country, Texas is the pathway to winning the Democratic nomination,” said Manny Garcia, who works as executive director of the Texas Democratic Party.

“The public deserves to see the vote and the delegate results on election night, and we urge the Texas Secretary of State’s office not to leave Texas voters and our nation in the dark,” he added.

The Texas process works by distributing 149 district-delegates proportionally among candidates who receive 15 percent or more of the vote among various Senate districts. The number of delegates up for grabs per Senate district depends uon how many people voted for the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and the 2018 Democratic nominee for governor. Each district is appointed between 2 and 10 delegates during the election cycle.

The chaos and confusion may result in the Democrat Party becoming more hands-on in the process, which will likely anger anti-establishment Bernie Sanders’ supporters who do not trust the party brass. Democrats are considering posting district-delegate distribution totals from outside of the Secretary of State’s web portal. This is highly unusual, and it is unclear what the state’s oversight role would be in the Democrats’ delegate counting.

“If we can confidently acquire and report in a timely manner election results by every category necessary to award delegate counts then we will do so,” Garcia said. “Transparency is our top priority. We will make further comments on our plans in the near future.”

The Democrat primary season has gotten off to a wild start, and it could become far more frenetic in the weeks to come.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November

They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.

Published

on

New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.

Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.

While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.

Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.

With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.

The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.

Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
