Pro Trump website polls audience, shows Trump supporters would go to Bernie

The western states are feeling #thebern as Bernie Sanders won all the states last evening with impressive margins, and a new poll from Amp Calypso shows a similar outcome may be imminent in New York and Wisconsin.

But my anger with the way they have attempted to influence the electorate and their blatant attempts to elect Hillary created my small form of protest.

Behold Count Trumpula, Bewitching the Weak and Draining Their Souls for the Promise of Eternal Bliss

Many would liken the rise of Donald Trump to that of Mussolini, cloaking fascism in pride and division. But I think the core of his appeal comes from an even darker menace. Foreseeing the frustration of toeing the line of false piety within the Republican base, Trump came prepared to offer a far more intoxicating alternative.

A Clear Look at Chosen Delegates: Bernie vs Hillary

I have posted a Democratic delegate chart in my member blog . It shows the chosen delegates (meaning primary and caususes) and ignores the superdelegates.
