eighteen days later

I understand why eighteen days later the news out of England, the media’s obsession with all things Trump, and Democratic Party House members symbolism are front and center with the media, but do we have to completely ignore this, California’s Primary Results, even eighteen days later?  On June 7th California held its primary late in the season as is its unfortunate position.  I say unfortunate because California at the forefront of many of the country’s economic, technological, creative, social, and legal issues, has always lagged in the nation’s political policies.  We vote after things are decided nationwide and now our results are posted as complete when four million of us who voted June 7th were yet to be counted.

The establishment, of course, wanted the primary season to be over.  Hillary couldn’t do it; Bernie wouldn’t fade away, so the media basically stopped reporting and once again became dishonest with the public.  Eighteen Days Later there are still votes to be counted in California.  About a million.  Several local races and propositions are still up for grabs.  Hillary’s lead has shrunk from 13.7% (election night) to 8.7%  I don’t know what the final percentage separating the candidates will be but it appears Hillary’s lead of 13.7% was a bit optimistic.  While a win is a win a huge defeat like 13.7% quieted the Bernie campaign.  A lead of half that amount probably not so much.  In addition eighteen days later there are all those local races and propositions still waiting to be decided…

It is sad when the media calls an election at an end and not when all the votes are counted. After all, there are all those local races and propositions still waiting to be decided…

Check it out yourself at the California Secretary of State web page.  Also at that website you can see that the status of over 40 counties in California remains that of still counting. http://vote.sos.ca.gov/returns/president/party/democratic/
