The last question of the night during Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Las Vegas, Nevada was the most telling one and put Democrat hypocrisy on display.
NBC’s Chuck Todd, who was one of the moderators at the debate, explained how we’re two weeks away from a national primary and that there’s a good chance that none of them will have enough delegates to clench the nomination at the Democratic National Convention. He asked them if the person with the most delegates at the end of the primary season should be the nominee, even if short of a majority.
You would think they would all jump at the chance to go into their mantra about how every vote should count and how the popular vote is the only way to go.
How many times have we heard from them that Hillary Clinton should be president because she won the popular vote? (Note to Dems: she didn’t win the popular vote if you take California out the equation).
Most of the Democratic presidential candidates even support getting rid of the electoral college. Elizabeth Warren has repeatedly called for the end of the electoral college and has said many times, “every vote matters.”
Pete Buttigieg, in an interview with NBC in June of 2019, has called the electoral college “undemocratic.” He said, “I think most Americans, of any party, ought to be able to get on board with the idea that one person, one vote, counting equally, is the fairest way to choose our president.”
Because when it comes down to how the nominee will be chosen if no one has enough delegates, every candidate on stage (except, Bernie of course) wants the “system” to play out instead of going with the popular vote. So I guess, every vote, doesn’t actually count – or at least, the Democratic candidates for president don’t want them too.

What that means is that hundreds of superdelegates will be able to vote for any candidate they want to on the second vote at the convention (or the first vote if the DNC changes their rules). These superdelegates are party men and women – elected officials, DNC people, etc. Not exactly Bernie Sanders fans.
Tulsi Gabbard, who doesn’t have any delegates and who didn’t make the debate stage on Wednesday, has been outspoken against the DNC process of allowing superdelegates to make decisions for voters.
“I think we need to get rid of superdelegates,” she said. “Once again, this is continuing to be an issue of concern to voters here in New Hampshire who are worried about their vote actually being counted and how they don’t want it to be overruled by a small group of individuals who can come in and say, ‘You know, I don’t think you guys know what you’re doing. We’re gonna come in and decide this election.'”
Here’s the exchange at the debate:
TODD: Should the person with the most delegates at the end of this primary season be the nominee, even if they are short of a majority? Senator Sanders, I’m going to let you go last here, because I know your view on this. So instead, I will start with you, Mayor Bloomberg.
BLOOMBERG: Whatever the rules of the Democratic Party are, they should be followed. And if they have a process, which I believe they do…
TODD: OK, I’m trying to do this yes or no to make it fast.
BLOOMBERG: … everybody else — everybody can…
TODD: So you want the convention to work its will?
TODD: Senator Warren?
WARREN: But a convention working its will means that people have the delegates that are pledged to them and they keep those delegates until you come to the convention.
TODD: Should the leading person?
WARREN: All of the people.
TODD: OK. All righty. Vice President Biden?
BIDEN: Play by the rules.
TODD: Yes or no, leading person with the delegates, should they be the nominee or not?
BIDEN: No, let the process work its way out.
TODD: Mayor Buttigieg?
BUTTIGIEG: Not necessarily. Not until there’s a majority.
TODD: Senator Klobuchar?
KLOBUCHAR: Let the process work.
TODD: Senator Sanders?
SANDERS: Well, the process includes 500 super-delegates on the second ballot. So I think that the will of the people should prevail, yes. The person who has the most votes should become the nominee.
TODD: Thank you, guys. Five noes and a yes.
