I love this stuff ... statistics ... there were 6 coinflips for delegates and HRC won all of them ... reminded me of this scene from Dumb & Dumber: https://youtu.be/KX5jNnDMfxA
Remember that $100,000 profit on her cattle futures trades?
"In a Fall 1994 paper for the Journal of Economics and Finance, economists from the University of North Florida and Auburn University investigated the odds of gaining a hundred-fold return in the cattle futures market during the period in question. Using a model that was stated to give the hypothetical investor the benefit of the doubt, they concluded that the odds of such a return happening were at best 1 in 31 trillion."
For a great explanation on how manipulative the Democratic Caucus in Iowa is, check out this simple demo: http://cowboybyte.com/42548/how-a-cau...
The game is rigged from the beginning.
What was also interesting is that initially, Hillary instructed several of her delegates to side with Martin O'Malley to attempt to give him some legitimacy. When it turned out that she couldn't afford to lose the delegates, they had to switch back!
They will just maintain that they were cheated....no matter what.
Considering the two sides in this dispute it's a bit of the pot calling the kettle black.
