    My pick is still Harris even though she's (supposedly) waning in the polls. I believe the DNC is delusional (meaning they won't pick someone that could actually beat Trump like Gabbard, even if she comes with foreign policy baggage warmongering neoliberals don't like), but I don't think they're dumb enough to pick someone like Biden. Harris is the epitome of your corrupt, haughty and arrogant establishment shill, just like Hillary. Only difference is she has BOTH the sexist card and the racist card they can play. And there's no doubt Trump will attack her in a way the liberal media will easily construe as a sexist or racist attack. I mean, that's inevitable.

    Well, sorta. The superdelegates can only put a thumb on the scale, not determine the outcome by themselves.

    And you assume the votes are correctly counted? I don't think there are any voting integrity laws for primaries since the parties are private organizations and not government institutions.

    They have dramatically cut back on the impact of the superdelegates after the 2016 fiasco. But they still have other tricks up their sleeves like forwarding the questions that will be asked in a debate before it takes place so their selected candidate has a distinct advantage -- which is also something they did in 2016 to make sure Hillary got "Her Turn" regardless what the rank and file membership wanted.

    In order of likelihood.

    1) Biden. Unless he keeps opening his mouth.

    2) Warren: Unless there's another debate - with anyone.

    3) Gabbard: If a miracle occurs.

    4) Harris: If Biden manages to shoot off his foot and Warren debates - and Gabbard drops out.

    5) Williamson: If the Democrats decide to just make the election hell for Trump since they can't win.

    6) Sanders: If Satan ice skates to work.

    The rest of the bad Our Gang Ripoffs: Bwahahahahaha!!!!!

    The odds of Biden not saying something extremely stupid are even worse than those of Trump giving up tweeting.

    I don't think the process is 100% rigged, no. If it were, Sanders would not have persisted as long as he did last time.
