The best time to beta test an app is during your kickoff primary.

Maybe it's Democratic Party shenanigans.

Near as I can tell Sanders took the lead and they shut it down.

I expect results to come in later today showing a narrow victory for Biden.

Oddly enough, Trump's 2020 campaign geek said the same thing.

Despite the fact that now it will be counted via the original paper trail.

This is, obviously, yet another example of the Democrats screwing it up bigtime. This morning it started out with a simple program problem and easily fixed. Now its become a serious coding problem. No telling where its going to go from there.

Its often said; "Democrats have a real talent for screwing it up". This can add a little humor but the outcome is slightly different. Every time they do something stupid, like this, voters have got to be wondering whether they should be in charge of gov. This time, for me, its a really important election to get rid of a bullying and budding American King. My hope is that they will think things through before having at it. Anybody with half a brain knows that before you install a new program you test the hell out of it. We are now told that their testing was putting it into operating 2 hours before use! <sigh>

Will it? Or is that simply what we will be told as results are created from whole cloth?

That's what Trump would like you to believe. But it's all down on paper. Everybody who went to a caucus knows the results of that caucus. If there was any fiddling with the numbers, thousands of people would know.

Just like so many other conspiracies, that's nonsense. The human race can hardly keep anything secret if just two people know it, much less thousands.

If there was a hack, it was not to change the numbers. It was to make the reporting process fail. And that is exactly what Trump is promoting and his Russian hacker buddies could have done.

And I'm saying it was intentionally done to slow down the process and to make it easier for Democrats to finagle their own numbers. The Democratic Party is terrified of Bernie Sanders. It's being said that the stock market will crash if he is the nominee...lots of things are being said. Things are being done about it too.

Shenanigans...Malarkey....Finagling...anything to Stop Bernie.
