Deep Thought

Why in the world did the DNC give more delegates to the territory of Puerto Rico than 27 states?

Delegates
Puerto Rico:    63
Alabama:        60
Connecticut:    60
Kentucky:       60
Iowa:           57
South Carolina: 54
Oklahoma:       48
Arkansas:       47
Kansas:         41
Mississippi:    41
DC 39
West Virginia:  39
New Mexico:     38
Nevada:         34
Rhode Island:   33
Maine:          32
Nebraska:       31
New Hampshire:  30
Hawaii:         29
Utah:           29
Montana:        25
Delaware:       23
Idaho:          23
South Dakota:   23
Vermont:        23
North Dakota:   21
Alaska:         18
Wyoming:        18

The last time I checked, Puerto Rice can’t vote in the Presidential Election nor do they have Democratic and Republican parties on the island running for and holding political offices. The primary system needs fixing. (Note: I’m not against giving territories delegates in political conventions. Just less than states).

Also, Hillary needs to drop out already.

    If you think about it, regardless of real political leverage and the hypothetical fact that there’s more people in Puerto Rico than Alaska and Wyoming combined, I’d rather give the idea to select the DNC Pres. Rep to a group of people who are more likely happier on that island to those that are in the middle of nowhere. But I digress, it’s never polite to talk about politics over dinner. =P

    My question is why isn’t James Wall a super-duper delegate? The difference between super delegates and super-duper delegates is that super-duper delegates must vote with a high-five and can kick hill-town out already.

    Even if apportioned by population, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Alabama are larger than Puerto Rico. Plus, I don’t think it’s a good idea to only allow people to vote on the condition of their mood. If that were the case, then we’d never have change. Food for thought.
