Wow. Whoever set up the "Bernie bros" narrative is freakin' brilliant. Took the campaign from issues of encryption and government secrecy and big banking to gender politics in a way that completely overshadowed those concerns.

Damn, that's some impressive political operation.

* New York Times 2016 Democrat Iowa Entrance Polls. * New York Times 2016 Republican Iowa Entrance Polls.

Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
