    Well if he somehow made it to the general election, the DNC would raise money for him and support his run.

    Contributions often decline with the probability of winning. If Sanders was the nominee funds would most likely increase. In the general matching funds come in to play also.

    Candidates usually suspend when the funds run out.

    Trump would make hay with that 6 mil. I think that's about all Trump spent in the past 11 months.

    Big difference between trump and sanders, though. The dem big wigs may want Hillary over Bernie but they don't think he is ******* crazy like some people think trump is.

    I don't think he is spending his money wisely. Maybe the $27 donations just aren't really enough for a campaign. All those offices, signs, travel, big venue rental, security, radio and TV ads aren't cheap. When is the last time he even had an ad on TV? I saw some nearly a year ago which were quite inspirational. If only he had been able to keep those kinds of ads on everyone's TV, perhaps things would have turned out differently.

    It would be interesting to know the actual amount he spent on the campaign because he doesn't seem to need with all the publicity that the state controlled media (cnn, abc, nbc, facebook) are giving him thinking they are hurting him. Instead it is working in his favor. It will be hilarious if he actually wins the election. It will blow up in all the fascists scum's faces.

    No one has stole anything. You, Sanders, and other Sanders supporters need to get over that and realize the fact that simply more people have voted for her than him. Sorry...that's just the facts. Go shake your fist at Bernie for not getting more people, particularly in the south, to vote for him.

    What you say and has been seen are two different things. Hello Trump

    No...it's not. Wishful thinking on your part. Again, put the blame on Sanders for not connecting with more voters in the South. This is where (and when) the election was lost.

    As for Bernie or bust....you do realize that you are in the minority on that one, right? Even most fellow Sanders supporters do not agree with you.

    Sanders voters may find themselves apologizes for other Sanders voters soon.

    Bernie Sanders is like a drunken party guest who has overstayed his welcome. Charming and interesting at first, he's now becoming incoherent and disruptive. Stick around much longer, and he's in danger of becoming a real menace.

    Lets make a couple of things clear: Sanders won't even call himself a Democrat. Why he thinks that entitles him to claim that party's nomination is not clear to me. Even less clear to me is why he, and his supporters, think their votes and voices are worth more than those who voted for Hillary Clinton. Mrs Clinton has significantly outpolled Sanders in the 2016 primaries - by more than 2.5 million votes so far. Mrs Clinton also has the near universal support of the party establishment, its elected officials, and from most of the donors who will end up funding the election campaign this fall.

    Look at unscientific polls of #neverTrump people before he got the nomination and it would look about the same for who will vote for Trump. But they are all coming around to him. The same thing will happen for Hillary, and since she has already had just about every possible line of attack thrown at her she won't lose support, while Trump may lose support from moderates in the GOP.

    With the June 7th primaries less than 2 weeks away, Bernie is probably spending all of the money he has left to keep his campaign on life support until then. He's probably come to the realization that he's not going to need to save that money for the general election.

    Yeah, it's looking like it's going to be bust but by all means he should limp on in and torch everyone in his path on the way.
