  1. Go Barack.

  2. Get your free porn and awesome smut reviews here.

    Why should citizens even vote if some of the delgates already committed

  4. I really dont “get” the delegate rationale? How does an individual vote even count in reationship to a delegate or superdelegate? I am in Bucks County PA.

  5. Read my letter in tomorrow’s (march 10) Philadelpiha Inquirer re. superdelegates, and how that system is simply wrong.

  6. Why does CNN fail to mention Kasich in post debate is the only Sain candidate in either party

  7. Lori Folcarelli

    We the people obviously have no say. These delegates can vote however they want to. Very sad.

  8. How do we find out who these delegates we vote for are going to vote for at the convention? The dems make it known I believe. But we have to vote for these people with no idea if they’ll go with our candidate. Very shady imo. Maybe we try to contact each delegate candidate in our cong. dist.

  9. We all have to contact and threaten to vote dem, if they dont back our guy…sorry but if they are playing dirty politics, we gotta get in the mud and fight. CANT HAVE CRUZ… TRUST ME

  10. Pa.’s republican committee is even more corrupt than the rnc. I have been trying to nail down the delegates for my congressional district, but to this point I haven’t found any. I have found that there ar 14 or 17 for the 18th district and only 7 have been chosen. Names not released at this time and whom they are backing is a secret. I may not even vote if I can’t vote for the delegate that is committed to my choice for POTUS.

  11. I have complete information on the presidential election process on my non-partisan website. I also am compiling a listing of who candidates support (starting with NEPA, where I live.)

  12. Here is a partial list of delegate names along with who they are voting for.
    Depending on which district you live in,you’ll either vote for 3 or 4.Hope this helps!

  13. Go to: and scroll down to your district. The candidates are there, and their preferences.

  14. Morning Call is inaccurate and incomplete. Pocono Record is better, but still incomplete. The only resource currently maintaining an accurate record of all delegates that have been vetted on social media to ensure that is how they are voting it Vote PA.



    Please vote for canadate who gets the most votes don’t let our people think we are crooked
