Democrats are about to seal their 2020 fate with this move
Democrats were accused of rigging their primary in 2016 in favor of Hillary Clinton.
They are taking steps to make sure their establishment can’t stack the deck against socialists and other radical leftist candidates.
One of these moves may have just doomed them to defeat in 2020.
Hillary Clinton was able to fend off Bernie Sanders in part because of the nearly 700 Super Delegates who can vote at the nominating convention.
These are elected officials and other party elders who can cast their ballot at the convention for whoever they want regardless of how their state voted.
Party elites pressed their thumbs down on the scale for Hillary and the Democrat base was furius.
A Hillary-Bernie unity commission designed to reform the primary process recommended reducing the number of super delegates by 60 percent.
But the DNC may go even farther and eliminate them entirely.
“In the weeks since the final Unity Reform Commission meeting, Democrats have considered going a step further — eliminating superdelegates altogether in the main convention vote.
The idea became a subject of debate here this week at a DNC meeting, where members of the Rules and Bylaws Committee engaged in a lengthy, granular back-and-forth on Thursday over language to either “reduce,” “substantially reduce,” or “eliminate” superdelegates.
“‘Reduce’ covers ‘elimination,'” said Leah Daughtry, one member of the committee. “It would give us enough elbow room, enough latitude, to get to zero — if that’s what we want to get to.”
“I think we’re leaving it open. We’re saying ‘reduce or eliminate,'” said committee cochair James Roosevelt III. “We’re gonna reduce, but we just don’t know how far we’re going.”
At a youth council meeting at the DNC meeting, members pushed the idea of cutting out elected officials as superdelegates altogether. Other members expressed concern about the idea. “I’m worried that we’re just going way too far on this before we decide what in fact we’re going to do,” said Harold Ickes, a longtime DNC member who sits on the Rules and Bylaws Committee.”
The Democrat base is insane.
Its voters believe you can switch your gender and a recent poll showed nearly half of Democrats support banning all guns.
Without any guard rails in place, they will nominate a lunatic leftist that will be easy pickings for Donald Trump.
A foaming at the mouth socialist candidate could also drag Democrats across America down to a historic defeat.
While that may be bad for the Democrat Party, it is good news for America.
