No Politifact – Hillary Clinton Would Not Have Won Nomination Without Super Delegates!

Politifact emailed me this week about a post published last week at the GWP titled “NOTE TO SANDERS SUPPORTERS: Bernie Would Have Won If Not for Super Delegate System!”

Politifact advertises that it received a Pulitzer Prize is ran by the Tampa Bay Times but based on its content it is a left leaning website and liberal attack machine geared towards the destruction of any voice standing up against the left. The email from Politifact stated –

I’m working on a fact check of Donald Trump who tweeted, “An analysis showed that Bernie Sanders would have won the Democratic nomination if it were not for the Super Delegates. (

I think Mr. Trump was referring to your post in Gateway Pundit. Would you say that Mr. Trump was accurately describing your findings?”

It was clear at this point that Politifact was not seeking the truth but looking for a way to attack Trump. The correspondent at Politifact next agreed that Hillary only won the nomination due to super delegates but then argued that Hillary still would have won.

As stated in the GWP post questioned by Politifact –

By the numbers Hillary is a horrible candidate. She only won 56% of the states where Trump won 74%.

Hillary only won 2,205 delegates but needed 2,382. Sanders had 1,846 delegates.  But Hillary was awarded 602 super delegates to Sanders’ 48.  So, as was stated in the post, “If it were reverse and Sanders was given the same number of super delegates as Hillary, Sanders would have won the nomination.”

We also noted that Trump won 2 million more votes than any candidate in Republican history.  Hillary however received only 94% of the record number of votes from the 2008 Democrat primary season. The Democrat Party received 7 million votes less than in 2008! Republicans received a record 11 million more votes than in 2008.

We also noted that these results are all consistent with the terrible candidate Democrats have in Hillary Clinton and the incredible candidate Republicans have in Donald Trump.

It is absurd for Politifact to believe that Hillary would have won the election without super delegates – she simply didn’t have enough. We’ll also never know the outcome of this election without super delegates because the Democratic primaries are over and this year super delegates made the difference for Hillary.

But then again, we now know from Wikileaks that the entire Democratic primary season was ‘rigged’.  So maybe Politifacts is right – corrupt super delegates or not – Bernie Sanders never had a chance.
