Dear Bernie Sanders: Your campaign should immediately file a federal lawsuit seeking court intervention, investigation and oversight of the 2020 Democratic primary

ADMIN:
Dear Bernie Sanders: Are you aware of the fact sufficient evidence exists to substantiate a valid claim of election fraud occurring against your campaign specifically, drastically reducing your campaign’s final election results in those states where the unadjusted exit polling data was at very high unacceptable levels of variance with the actual final election count?

In this 2020 Democratic Primary massive election fraud has already occurred in nearly each state thus far, and will most likely continue throughout the remainder of the primary. How do we know this? Because of exit polling discrepancies, that’s how.

A federal lawsuit should be filed immediately in each state where the final election results are at great variance with the exit polling data.

But what about right now, before the next set of states? Bernie should seek court-ordered paper ballots for each of the remaining states, if the court finds evidence election fraud may have occurred in the previous states. There’s no need to rush this primary but damn good reason to seek an election free of criminals manipulating and cheating the American voter out of their vote. We need paper ballots now and court-ordered independent election monitors to observe, record and deter election interference and fraud.

The evidence shows large, unacceptable levels of election negligence/fraud in voting machine operation (vote flipping) chain-of-custody issues regarding thumbdrives and other devices/methods used to transmit machine tabulations and large exit polling data variance from the final election results, drastically reducing Bernie Sanders final election results in those states where such great variance took place. Such great variance is not coincidence, but evidence of election fraud.


I believe a voter has a constitutional right to free and fair elections. I believe sufficient evidence exists to substantiate a legitimate cause of action in a U.S. District court lawsuit seeking justice in this primary – which means seeking our constitutional right to a free and fair election in this 2020 Democratic primary.

The Bernie Sanders campaign (or We the People) should file a federal lawsuit in each defective state to seek justice and fair results in this 2020 Democrat primary election. What would justice look like? A U.S. District court judge could institute court oversight of a court investigation of election fraud claims and make findings of fact subsequent to the court appointing independent investigators to inspect all election materials, devices, documents, ballots, tabulations, software etc. and reach some final conclusions which could result in the court adjusting the final election results or ordering a new election to be held again.

The court could direct a federal agency to interview all witnesses and election officials and workers involved in the processing of votes in those states, including Democrat Party officials state and national.

Here’s some of the evidence substantiating such a claim in a federal lawsuit:

Exit Polling Discrepancies

The evidence indicates the final election results do not match the exit polling data. A variance of 1-3% in the exit polling data has been deemed normal and acceptable for decades, worldwide and nationally. In this 2020 Democratic primary the exit polling variance is upwards of 3%, 8% and much higher depending upon which state.

The evidence exists proving election fraud occurred in Super Tuesday’s elections and the first four states:

Super Tuesday Biden Victories Questioned by Election Watchers

Wildly divergent exit polls in South Carolina and Massachusetts, and documented voting problems in California and Texas, have prompted veteran election watchers to suggest that there may have been election fraud on Super Tuesday, always at the expense of the Bernie Sanders vote.

Edison Research/CNN polls show 4 point and 7 point discrepancies in South Carolina and Massachusetts, respectively, between the computer-tallied vote totals and exit polling. Exit polls are considered by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to be one reliable indicator of election fraud. Election fraud may be perpetrated by hacking of vote tabulation machines, or reporting incorrect results that are different from the tally tapes from each machine.

In South Carolina, where Joe Biden scored what was described extensively in the media as the “Biden Bounce,” Biden gained nearly five points in the official tally over the exit poll projection, and an astonishing seven points in the official tally in Massachusetts. The typical margin of error for Edison Research polls is 3%. In both SC and MA, exit polls showed Sanders doing better than the official vote tallies.

South Carolina voters say machines ‘flipped’ their votes
By Mark Moore November 6, 2018 | 1:29pm | Updated

Voters in South Carolina said machines at some polling places “flipped” their vote, according to a report on Tuesday.

The voters began to complain after they said their candidate picks, including in the governor’s race, did not match those on their final ballot submission, CBS station WLTX reported.

One person told the station that she tried to correct her vote several times before a poll worker took her to another machine so she could cast her vote.

Richland County elections director Rokey Suleman said no votes were switched and blamed the malfunctions on a calibration issue with the voting machines.

He told the station that if the touchscreen calibration is off, it could make an unintended selection.

He cautioned voters to review their final selection page to ensure it reflects their correct picks.

Suleman said polling places in the county have also reported problems with flashcards, electrical cords and non-functioning outlets.

He said the voting machines are usually recalibrated several times on Election Day.

The complaints in South Carolina follow similar reports at the end of October about voting machine glitches in Texas.

Early voters casting straight party tickets in Houston said the machines changed their ballots to include a candidate from the other party.

Democrats and Republicans said their selections were affected.

Election officials rejected claims that the machines malfunctioned and chalked up the mistakes to “operator error.”

“It’s not a glitch, it’s a user-induced problem that comes from the type of system that we have,” Ft. Bend County election administrator John Oldham told ABC 13. “I think both sides could be equally hurt.”

Owner of TDMSResearch.com Theodore de Macedo Soares, wrote of Massachusetts after the primaries:

“The 2020 Massachusetts Democratic Party presidential primary was held on March 3, 2020. Election results from the computerized vote counts differed significantly from the results projected by the exit poll conducted by Edison Research and published by CNN at poll’s closing. As in the 2016 Massachusetts primary between candidates Sanders and Clinton, disparities greatly exceed the exit poll’s margin of error. Sanders won Massachusetts in the exit poll and lost it in the computer count.”

Soares has noted that it is particularly suspicious when other exit polls seem to be quite accurate in other contests, or with respect to candidates of little interest. In 2016, exit polls between Hillary Clinton and Sanders were GROSSLY off in a manner which favored Clinton, but were always within a point of being accurate in other races.

MASSACHUSETTS 2020 DEMOCRATIC PARTY PRIMARY Exit Poll Versus Reported Vote Count
Posted on March 4, 2020 by Theodore de Macedo Soares
http://tdmsresearch.com/2020/03/04/massachusetts-2020-democratic-party-primary/

The 2020 Massachusetts Democratic Party presidential primary was held on March 3, 2020. Election results from the computerized vote counts differed significantly from the results projected by the exit poll conducted by Edison Research and published by CNN at poll’s closing. As in the 2016 Massachusetts primary between candidates Sanders and Clinton, disparities greatly exceed the exit poll’s margin of error. Sanders won Massachusetts in the exit poll and lost it in the computer count.

The discrepancies between the exit poll and the vote count for Sanders and Biden totaled 8.2%— double the 4.0% exit poll margin of error. Warren’s and Biden’s discrepancies totaled 8.0%, also double the margin of error. These discrepancies replicate the total discrepancy of 8.0% favoring Clinton in the 2016 Massachusetts Democratic Party primary between her and Sanders. This time two progressive candidates exhibit the same discrepancies now favoring Biden representing the establishment’s choice.

Presidential candidates Biden’s and Bloomberg’s vote counts exhibited the largest disparity from their exit poll projections. Biden’s unobservable computer-generated vote totals represented a 15.7% increase of his projected exit poll share. Given the 1,342,905 voters in this election, he gained approximately 60,900 more votes than projected by the exit poll. Bloomberg increased his vote share by 28.2% and approximately 34,500 more votes than projected. Their gain came largely at the expense of candidates Sanders and Warren whose combined vote counts were 97,000 less than projected by the exit poll.[i]

Noteworthy is the fact that the 2016 Massachusetts Republican Party exit poll taken at the same time and at the same precincts as the Democratic Party primary, and also with a crowded field of five candidates, was matched almost perfectly by the computer count—varying by less than one percent for each candidate.

Exit polls are widely recognized—such as by, for example, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)—as a means for checking the validity of vote counts. The U.S. has financed exit polls in other countries to “ensure free and fair” elections.

The United States remains one of the few major democracies in the world that continue to allow computerized vote counting—not observable by the public—to determine the results of its elections.[ii] Countries such as Germany, Norway, Netherlands, France,[iii] Canada,[iv] United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and many other countries protect the integrity of their elections with publicly observable hand-counting of paper ballots.[v]

For example, candidate Biden’s unverified computerized vote count exceeded his EP projected vote proportion by 4.5% while Sander’s computerized count understated his EP projected vote proportion by 3.7% for at total discrepancy of 8.2%. This 8.2% disparity, greatly exceeding the statistical 4.0% margin of error based on their exit poll proportions, is significant as it cannot be attributed to the MOE.

Exit Poll Versus Reported Vote Count

By Theodore de Macedo Soares

The 2020 Texas Democratic Party presidential primary was held on March 3, 2020. Election results from the computerized vote counts differed significantly from the results projected by the exit poll conducted by Edison Research and published by CNN at poll’s closing. According to the exit poll Sanders was tied with Biden but lost in the unobservable computer counts by 4.5%.

In this election candidate Sanders saw the largest discrepancy between the exit poll and computer vote counts. His projected vote proportion fell 4% in the vote counts—an 12% reduction of his exit poll share. The combined discrepancies between the exit poll and the vote count for candidates Sanders and Biden at 4.4% significantly exceeded the 2.9% margin of error for the exit poll difference between the two. The discrepancies between Sanders and Bloomberg at 5.4% was triple their respective margin of error. See table below.

There is good reason to believe that the exit poll just prior to publishing showed a Sanders win in Texas.

As explained by Joe Lenski, executive vice president of Edison Media Research in a 2016 interview with The Washington Post, as soon as polls close in a state Edison Research alters the exit poll in accordance with incoming vote counts. They are hired by the networks to predict the winners and losers in an election as soon as possible and to provide the proportion and voting patterns of various demographics and their views on topics of interest. The incoming vote counts are useful to them to better predict the results of the unobservable computer counts. They were not hired to ascertain their accuracy.

Texas as in a few other states such as New Hampshire and Florida have the great majority of the state’s polls closing an hour earlier than the remainder. This is great for Edison Research because they can use that hour’s access to the tabulating votes from much of the state to adjust their exit poll prior to first publishing after all polls close in those states. In Texas, as the final vote count shows, candidate Sanders was losing the state and they likely used these results to downgrade a Sanders win to a tie with Biden in their first published exit poll. Edison Research and or the major networks with access to this unpublished poll would be able to confirm if it indeed showed a Sander’s win and by how much.

The United States remains one of the few major democracies in the world that continue to allow computerized vote counting—not observable by the public—to determine the results of its elections.[i] Countries such as Germany,[ii] Norway, Netherlands, France,[iii] Canada,[iv] United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and many other countries protect the integrity and trust of their elections with publicly observable hand-counting of paper ballots.[v]

Texas 2020 Primary

[1] Exit poll (EP) downloaded from CNN’s website by TDMS on election night, March 3, 2020 at 9:03 PM ET. Candidates’ exit poll percentage/proportion derived from the gender category. Number of EP respondents: 3,130. As this first published exit poll was subsequently adjusted towards conformity with the final computerized vote count, the currently published exit poll differs from the exit poll used here and available through the link below.

[2] Candidates’ percentage/proportion of the total computer-generated vote counts derived from reported counts (94% reporting) updated on March 6, 2020 and published by The New York Times. Total number of voters: 3,290,429

[3] The difference between the exit poll proportion and reported vote proportion for each candidate (subtracting values in column two from the values in column three). A positive value indicates the candidate did better and received a greater share of the total reported count than projected by the exit poll. For example, as candidate Sanders, reported percentage/proportion of the total vote decreased by 4% compared to his exit poll share this value is negative.

[4] This column shows the percentage increase or decrease from the candidate’s exit poll projection (difference in column four divided by exit poll proportion in column two). Shown, to simplify the table, only for candidates with greater than 4% share in the exit poll.

[5] This column presents a distinct Margin of Error (MOE) for the exit poll (EP) differences between candidate Biden and Bloomberg versus each of the other candidate’s EP results. This MOE, for example, between Biden and Sanders is 2.9% and the MOE between Bloomberg and Sanders is 1.7%. For simplicity MOE only shown for candidates with greater than 4% share in the EP. As this election involves multiple candidates the common method of ascertaining an MOE of the poll and then doubling it to see if the difference between two candidates is significant is replaced by a more appropriate method that directly calculates a distinct MOE for the difference between any two paired candidates. MOE calculated according to multinomial formula in: Franklin, C. The ‘Margin of Error’ for Differences in Polls. University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin. October 2002, revised February 2007. Available at:
https://abcnews.go.com/images/PollingUnit/MOEFranklin.pdf

[6] The discrepancies between the exit poll and the reported computer-generated vote counts comparing candidates Biden and Bloomberg with each of the other candidates (subtracting each candidate’s difference between exit poll and computer count from Biden’s difference of 0.3% and in a separate column from Bloomberg’s difference of 1.0%. If the MOE is greater than the discrepancy it the discrepancy is not significant as it can be explained by the MOE. Conversely if the MOE is smaller then it cannot explain the discrepancy and another explanation is required. As shown in the table the combined discrepancies between Warren and Biden and separately between Warren and Blomberg are smaller than their respective MOEs and thus not significant. The combined discrepancies between Sanders and Biden and separately between Sanders and Blomberg are significant and cannot be explained by their respective MOEs.

[i] Fittingly, according to a recent Gallup World Poll, only 40% of Americans say they are confident in the honesty of U.S. elections. Finland and Norway with 89% of their citizens expressing confidence in the honesty of their elections along with the citizens of 25 other countries have greater confidence in their elections than do Americans.

[ii] In 2009 the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany ruled that every important aspect of an election must be observable by the public and thus “meet the constitutional requirements of the principle of the public nature of elections.” The Court explicitly ruled that no amount of voting machine testing, security requirements, and licensing procedures can compensate for this constitutional requirement. With this ruling, Germany abandoned inherently unobservable computerized vote counting and reverted to the hand-counting of every ballot in the precincts in which they were cast and in the plain view of the public.

The court also noted that while vote fraud with hand-counted ballots would be easy to detect, “programming errors in the software or deliberate electoral fraud committed by manipulating the software of electronic voting machines can be recognized only with difficulty.”

[iii] During the 2007 presidential election, eighty-three municipalities (France has 36,569 municipalities) were allowed to use voting machines. Due to security concerns and the inability of voters to determine if their votes are counted correctly a moratorium, that remains today, prevents additional municipalities from introducing voting machines. In the 2012 elections only 64 municipalities continued their use. The French government desires a total ban on their use.

Massive election fraud occurred in the 2016 Democratic Primary and the 2016 U.S. Presidential general election. There were GIANT-SIZED exit polling discrepancies up to 33% variance in the 2016 Democratic Party primary.

Now in this 2020 Democratic primary we’re suffering more massive election fraud again.

During the Iowa caucuses, I called for the Sanders campaign to file a federal lawsuit seeking a federal court order to:

*STOP ALL COUNTING, TABULATING AND REPORTING OF PARTIAL ELECTION RESULTS;

*COURT DECLARE LEGAL DOMINION AND OVERSIGHT OVER THE IOWA CAUCUSES;

*SUBPOENA AND CONFISCATE ALL IOWA CAUCUS ELECTION MATERIALS, INCL. DEVICES, SOFTWARE, PRESIDENTIAL PREFERENCE CARDS, TABULATION DOCUMENTS AND NOTES;

*APPOINT INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATORS TO REVIEW SAID ELECTION MATERIALS;

*DIRECT INDEPENDENT PERSONNEL TO RE-TABULATE, RE-COUNT VOTES;

*ADJUST THE FINAL ELECTION RESULTS PURSUANT TO THE COURT’S RECALCULATION AND COUNTING OF VOTES OR THE COURT ORDERING A NEW ELECTION.

In my opinion, it seems the Sanders campaign will NOT be filing a federal lawsuit for any reason in this 2020 Democratic primary. I could write plenty as to the possible reasons and excuses the Sanders campaign is failing to file a federal lawsuit in this primary. Apparently Bernie and his staff are unaware of the campaign’s rights in this matter. After 2016, Bernie should have produced a legal team of federal civil attorneys ready to file actions in the 2020 primary.

According to a recent Gallup World Poll, only 40% of Americans say they are confident in the honesty of U.S. elections. Finland and Norway with 89% of their citizens expressing confidence in the honesty of their elections along with the citizens of 25 other countries have greater confidence in their elections than do Americans.

Rising Up: How the DNC plans to block Bernie in California

How the DNC plans to block Bernie in California: By the raw numbers, there is no state which is more expert and more vicious at vote suppression than the state of California. Alex Padilla, the so-called Democratic Hispanic Secretary of State, has been an absolute pro. He’s been the Brian Kemp and the Katherine Harris of California.The vote suppression that the Democrats engage in in California is to keep independent No Party Preference (NPP) voters from voting in the Democratic primaries. The California Roper Poll, which is the gold standard here in California, says that three quarters of NPP voters who want to vote in the Democratic primary — three quarters — support Bernie Sanders.They know that if NPP voters are allowed to vote in the Democratic primary, Sanders walks away with it. So in California, yes, you can technically vote in the Democratic primary if you’re an NPP voter, but they make it difficult. You have to know the magic word. If you’re an NPP voter, you have to go to the polling station with your ballot — and the envelope — and ask for a “Democratic party crossover ballot”. If you ask for a regular Democratic party ballot, your vote will be disqualified. Disqualified! It has to say “crossover Democratic party ballot”.Now, if you’re listening in the rest of the nation, you think this is nuts. No, it’s not nuts. It’s called stopping Bernie. So if you’re an NPP voter and you want to vote in the Democratic primary in California, make your life easy, and register as a Democrat. And do it TODAY since the voter registration deadline in California is February 18.Watch Greg's full half-hour interview on Rising Up with Sonali and make a donation to support our work at: gregpalast.com/palast-scores-victory-in-lawsuit-against-brian-kemp/#Bernie #BernieSanders #Bernie2020 #CAPrimary #VoterSuppression #ElectionFraud

California:
Bernie Sanders was declared the winner in California just moments after polls closed but his final haul of delegates could remain uncertain for days, or even weeks, as election officials tally the millions of provisional votes and mail-in ballots.

And while triumph in the Golden State will help Sanders remain competitive in what has become essentially a two-person race between him and Joe Biden, the eventual delegate math could indicate a decidedly shakier path to the nomination than the Vermont senator expected last week.

Voting on Super Tuesday in Los Angeles county, the state’s most populous, was marked by chaos after a $300m new voting system resulted in hours-long lines that kept people waiting even as midnight approached. Meanwhile, nearly half the state’s ballots still remain uncounted, estimates Paul Mitchell, with the campaign research firm Political Data Inc, which tracks ballots as they are returned.

“It’s like there’s this black box of how many ballots are at the post office right now,” said Mitchell. So far, about 5.3m ballots have been counted, according to Mitchell, just over 50% of the 10m he expects have been cast in this election. “The x-factor really is: do we see some big surging coming with the uncounted ballot results?” he said. “It’s just a huge unknown.”

Many voters dropped off or posted ballots at the last minute, and election officials are required to count mail-ins that arrive as late as Friday, as long as they are postmarked by 3 March.

    There is no valid reason for not recounting the votes for any election with suspicious results, including exit poll disrepancies from official results. If this isn’t done, we have no democracy.

    • Ray C.

      Do it!
      Biden is at best no better than Trump.
      This is where and when you political revolution needs to go to prevent an inevitable violent one.

    • Elizabeth Brotherton

      Please Senator Sanders I understand that covid19 is a top priority right now. Yet millions of Americans are behind your campaign and simply cannot allow the corruption to continue. Our votes MUST count now more than ever.

  2. Diane Barron

    When things go wrong in an election, things don’t add up, votes are not counted or counted wrong…it MUST be corrected…it MUST be made correct. As voters we deserve correctness and accountability.

    • Mary

      Everyone knows Bernie is being cheated! Bernie had the largest crowds, raised the most money, was leading in all the polls. It makes no sense that Biden would be winning the vote. We aren’t stupid, but we are outraged that the DNC would try to steal our votes again! This is America, not some third world country! We demand a recount or a revote! We will not accept your cheating any longer. The majority of our country loves Bernie and his platform! Please Bernie, fight back, we will stand with you! ❤️🔥✊🌍

  3. Sam Lowry

    This is just 2016 all over again. The lawsuit over that election fraud was ruled that the DNC can do whatever it wants, it doesn’t even have to hold an election if it doesn’t want to. Why is everyone expecting a different result a second time around? Nothing has been changed. Bernie should have run on a third party.

  4. JENNIFER BIGHAM

    Let’s expand on what you just said Sam Lowry! My question this entire primary season has been just that: WHY DIDN’T BERNIE RUN UNDER A 3RD PARTY-Independent Party?

    Donors? Yeah, but he had his grassroots that are CLEARLY out fundraising Biden. So is the DNC just keeping Bernie on and not nixing him now because they benefit off of our donations?

    This is why, in my opinion, a third party would’ve took off had Bernie been the leader of it and had it up and running before 2020 Primary Season kicked off. He would have clearly brought in more than 5% (is that the benchmark now?), I’m at a loss over this. What is the strategy he is working towards? ugghhh, (pulls out more hair)

  5. Margo Stewart

    It is plain for anyone truly paying attention election fraud has become the norm and if we don’t call it out for what it is, we can never hope to have a democratic election again. The voices of the people who suffer most are being drowned out, marginalized, or canceled out completely. Please help!

  6. Robbin Profit

    How do we get the campaign to address those of us who have had our votes stolen? There should be a class action suit representing us! for Election tampering!

  7. Christopher Kennard

    I will add my name and vote . . . if necessary to force a comprehensive review of possible voter fraud, then I will be out in the streets as part of a massive national demonstration . . . my presence, voice and vote will be there for America’s right to a fair, honest election without “favorites” stealing another national election, as occurred in 1960 (JFK) . . . 1980 (Reagan) . . . 2000 the Bush Dynasty . . . 2016 . . . Hillary Clinton in the primary elections and Trump in the general election. What a “sterling” record we have in America!

  8. Honora

    Has this article gotten into the hands/onto the desk of someone higher up in the Bernie campaign? Email, Twitter.

    This absolutely needs to be addressed.

    It doesn’t matter what party you are or aren’t, but if this is how the establishment is going to play, they absolutely need to be held accountable.

    The damage has already been done as far as decreasing faith in elections, because we should NOT have faith in our current elections.

    If this issue could be addressed ASAP, it might lead to a safer general election in addition to ensuring that the primary is fair. There have been obvious attempts at cheating since Iowa.

    I feel that all the conglomerated corporate media sabotage of Bernie should also be investigated, or at the very least I feel that if the DNC were investigated, there would be ties to CNN and possibly others. After watching everything go down, CNN colludes with the DNC and Biden as much as Fox does with Trump. It’s all beyond fishy.

  9. Susan

    This is why so many don’t bother to vote; they feel (and justly so looking that this information) that their vote doesn’t count! We need to ensure that every eligible voter CAN vote (no polls closed in districts favorable to one party/candidate, no polling places moved at the last minute, no machine breakdowns causing long lines) and that their votes are counted!

    I am a PRISON WIFE. WHY AREN’T YOU SAVING MY HUSBAND’S LIFE FROM CORONAVIRUS??? WHY AREN’T YOU DEMANDING INCARCERATED PEOPLE GET REAL MEDICAL SUPPLIES NOW??? WHY AREN’T YOU MEETING WITH FAMILIES OF INCARCERATED PEOPLE WHO MAY NEVER SEE OR TOUCH THEIR LOVED ONES EVER AGAIN? WHY AREN’T YOU CREATING LEGISLATION TO PROTECT AND DEFEND ALL OF US???

    Please follow up on this election fraud, Bernie. There are many of us who do not think that Biden will defeat Trump (Trump will use all of the lies that Biden tells and we will get four more years of Trump, something I don’t think our country can survive). How can almost every state that has voted be for Medicare for All, yet Biden wins? You are our only hope!

  12. Ann

    I feel these results are way off, especially because of the exit polls and moving or closing polling sites just before the election in areas where Bernie has the most strength. I also feel totally impotent to correct this, or know what can be done about it. It must be up to the campaign and the progressive movement to provide remedies for this abuse. I’m not voting for anyone, especially Biden, who the DNC has propped up to damage Bernie’s chances. Biden will probably lose to Trump and is a very defective candidate.

  13. Kirsten Erkfritz

    Bernie, we need you to stand up to Justice. WE need you to start this lawsuit. This is not ok, its killing our morale. We need you to go independent then. Fuck the Dems. We will take out Trump without them.

  14. Ingrid Elena Pavia

    Please ask for a complete do-over with mail-in ballots sent to every registered voter in all states and territories. Furthermore, a court order should include that each ballot should be traceable/trackable by the voter, the precinct, and the party.

    We need to push this, HARD! BUT. The people we need to talk to are the rank and file Dem party loyalists, who either don’t see this, or choose to ignore it. The DNC and gang, are actively working to reelect Trump. They know Bernie would win, and they are pretty sure Joe would lose. They are pulling out all the stops to maintain the status quo. The rank and file seems unaware, that Joe will be stomped in a general. None of his scandals was even touched by the Dems. But Rump will open up a BIG can of worms. And he won’t hesitate to show Joe’s mental decline in all its obvious glory.
    This is worse than 2016. And the court said the PARTY has the right to choose who they want. BUT. I can’t see how feeding people false numbers isn’t FRAUD. Aren’t there rules about defrauding the public? And since they take taxpayers’ money (both Parties get some), that is ALL the people. And they are taking in votes, and handing out fabricated results. Seems like THAT goes beyond some ‘private club’s rules.

  16. Andrew Tripp

    I think we need to, on top of filing a lawsuit, go out and vote *unless you are/live with immunocompromised people. If all these high-risk people come out and vote, despite the heavy recommendations of WHO, CDC, and most counties in the US, they are putting themselves at risk so they have Joe Biden, we should get out there and put ourselves at risk so we can save the country.

  17. Julie

    Can I get some help? A friend says the exit poll discrepancy math is off. “They are dividing when they should be subtracting. Like if the Exit poll said 10% and he got 5%, this methodology would say -50% error, when it should be -5%. False stats info or misleading at best.” Is that right? Thanks.

  18. RA

    Bernie, file a lawsuit, please!!! As a supporter since 2016, I will be so disappointed if you end your campaign without fighting the DNC when it is apparent to us (and probably to you and your team) that the primaries are rigged! Please, Bernie, you owe it to your supporters to fight!

  19. Michael Pascoe

    I want to urge you to contest last night’s loss. With the many people who had to stay home because of the virus, how can this election be even fair? We the People have donated to your campaign. Please use this money to challenge the election results

    Whatever the backlash may be for this, who cares. The media doesn’t like you or us anyway. The stakes are high. Your grandchildren’s future is at stake. You said this election is not you, but us. Well, we are still willing to fight. My wife and I have never believed in anyone as much as we believe in you. Please finish what you started and do not let them take this away from you.

    Don’t abandon us Bernie, we need you.

  20. Heather Cameron-Johnson

    We can’t let them get away with this! Too many lives are at stake! Two days ago, a Bernie supporter, feeling hopeless, committed suicide. How many more people will take their own lives? How many people will be killed by climate change, or inadequate healthcare? We are desperate for help, and we cannot accept these obviously incorrect primary results!

  21. Cathy Ortiz

    Please file. Joe Biden will lose to Trump! Everyone knows he’s a liar & makes up stuff. He’s losing it mentally. No progressive will vote for him. You would’ve won every State if it wasn’t for voter fraud! If you let them get away with it, our Democracy has died. We’re just an Oligarchy. They’ll use it against every progressive in the future. This must be stopped now!!

  22. Anita McCormick

    Bernie, please stay in the race and demand legal action in states where there appears to be election fraud, Our country needs you more than ever!

    You sound more like the Trump Cult each & every day & have made me embarrassed to be a progressive. FAKE NEWS! BERNIE DERANGEMENT SYNDROME! RIGGED ELECTIONS! How did such a positive & inspirational movement become a cult of personality devoted to one man & swimming in conspiracy theories?

    • alice

      to anonymous: why don’t you post your name? you sound like a troll who is unwilling or unable to digest facts and arrive at a sound conclusion. the research provided makes a prima facie case for fraud/vote rigging based on accepted analyses of exit poll results and variance from same. this has nothing to do with a “cult of personality” or “conspiracy theories.” there are many experts in the field of election integrity who study elections all over the world. to suggest that their conclusions are flawed or conspiratorial in nature is ignorant. your claim to be a progressive – embarrassed or otherwise – is laughable. true progressives are able to analyze information and make decisions accordingly. you seem to lack that ability.

        People don’t criticize Bernie and post their name because you guys tend to harass, threaten, and doxx people. I’ve lost count of the rape threats, personally.

  24. Justine A

    Lawsuits take too long. Unless you can get a court injunction. But whether you file a lawsuit or not, please don’t drop out.

  25. Linda Morse Robertson

    PLEASE stay in, we are behind you, and you do NOT have to support an illegal “winner” . We won’t. It is you or no one and I am 68 and will not cave in again as we did in 2016. The DNC deserves to be brought to their knees. I am going to go to Milwaukee and FIGHT for someone I do not know.

  26. Joan Easley

    Please, Bernie, before you think about dropping out, see if you were cheated and file a federal lawsuit. You are the nation’s best hope. We need you, your ideas, your honesty, intelligence and integrity.

  27. Joyce A Reyna

    Bernie I have been honored to stand for Not MeUS. I have been a follower of yours for decades. At my age, 64 I have been waiting for you and everything you stand for. I feel like the DNC has stolen my heart, my votes 2016&2020 my hard earned money and the donated disability funds, albeit not huge, am now on. It is incredibly discouraging to ever want to vote again. I pray that justice will prevail. Because at this point we cannot rely on Democracy.

  28. Annie Dodd

    I demand an investigation into the election results. I have put a lot of work, money and time away from my children to get out the vote for Bernie’s campaign. To see those votes I worked for just disappear is UNJUSTIFIABLE!!!

  29. Kriss Ryan

    If any of this is true, wouldn’t the Sanders campaign be the first to know about these inconsistencies? I have not heard or read anything from the campaign regarding this.

  30. Kate

    I hope this gets into the right hands. At this point we have a two headed snake going unchecked in our government and that needs to change if we have even the slightest chance of survival.

  31. KIT JONES

    These “fudged” vote counts all Against Bernie and For Biden are just the fig leaf to cover the outright stealing of Bernie’s votes so We the People won’t raise holy Hell when he is denied the Democratic Party nomination for POTUS–just as he was in 2016. This is the scenario that I–and I’m sure many others–have predicted for the 2020 election. The DNC–legally a private club, after all–can pick whomever the oligarchs want to run against Drumpfenstein’s Monster. It is much Sound and Fury-Signifying Nothing. If we want our choice to be on that effin’ ballot, we’re gonna have to Raise Hell to even possibly achieve that goal.

  32. usuck

    This BS is why trump and his party lying and looting the working people are gonna win again
    This coulda been put out by his campaign, it’s so ridiculous and toxic

  33. Laurie

    I have sent info on Maine’s election rigging by deliberate ballot under-allocation to Greg Palast, Howie Klein on ‘down with tyranny!’, Dorothy Reik of PDSMM and have written for ThisCantBeHapoening.net in my articles written under Dave Lindorffs byline, where I can be contacted. I got in the Thom Hartmann show you speak about this also. I can speak to this. Laurie Dobson.

  34. Steve

    Another data point to add that may serve to help find evidence of electoral fraud-
    Currently End Citizens United is sponsoring an ad on Facebook that poses as a political survey. It asks for respondents zip codes and email addresses. It then asks multiple questions requiring them to identify what candidate they support and to what intensity. At the end of the survey, they solicit donations in order for one’s responses to “count.”

    ECU has supported (and will likely continue to support) the Democratic establishment. They donated to the campaign of Hillary Clinton in 2016 and will likely donate to Joe if they have not already. The survey is misleading as it primarily concerns itself with Bernie Sanders electability and support. It is also laughable that a group that supports the establishment, which is run by super PACS, would actually want to end citizens united. More likely, it is just a scam to run money for the DNC.

    My apologies, the most important take away from all of this is that using the information gathered, they could locate individuals who support Bernie Sanders and either program machines to “drop” or “lose” or not count that vote. This would be one way to explain why exit polls and results are showing discrepancies. It would also be a level of subterfuge commensurate with the level of the DNC.

  35. Lisa R. Holt

    I read an article from Newsweek dated February 19, 2020 that declared their polling data showed that Joe Biden had an 8% chance of beating Trump in the general and Bernie had a 72% chance of doing so. In what universe does Biden all-of-a-sudden have this tidal wave surge, nearly all of the other candidates drop out and endorse him right before Super Tuesday? In what universe does the exit poll data show a vast majority of voters favoring M4A and they supposedly voted for Biden who made it clear in no uncertain terms that he would veto M4A?

  36. Susan

    They think they’re only cheating Bernie, but they are cheating every single one of his supporters who canvassed for him, made calls and texts for him, wrote postcards for him, sent millions of dollars in small donations for him (many from people who needed that money!) They are cheating US!

  37. Laurie Cestnick

    We need you Bernie you are our only hope! PLEASE help expose this! Please help stop election fraud once and for all! YOU ARE THE CLEAR WINNER AND THE ONLY ONE WHO CARES ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS TO US!

  38. Kristianne Gale

    I know you’re busy fighting for human rights in the Senate, but perhaps your legal team could address this? I would happily donate for the cause.

  39. Babs

    I hope and pray Bernie and his campaign will do this. It’s so obvious it was rigged and Bernie was cheated again. But, I’m afraid Bernie doesn’t have it in him. Bernie, I know you’re tired but we the people, the country and the world need you. We are all counting on you.

    Don’t cite TDMS. His math is wrong, part of some bizarre disinformation campaign. He is using absolutely incorrect math that artificially inflates the numbers — those numbers are absolutely wrong and it shows that he does not understand statistics, much less exit polling.

    The reality is there is NO evidence of election fraud in terms of vote counts. There are or may be other issues, certainly — but not HERE. This is a distraction. “Ted” has been shown to be completely wrong here.
