Why is Bernie Sanders still so optimistic about running?

It's all about the vote and the reason why Bernie Sanders is still trying to get more delegates. If I were him I would keep doing it. I personally will vote for Bernie Sanders in November's General Election if he manages to get enough of his required delegates. With any luck Hillary will lose because of her reputation for keeping secrets and sending secrets via e-mail, allegedly, of course. I wasn't there. I am just telling things based on news I heard about the email and secrets and all that. I don't want to give up on Bernie Sanders. I know Ted Cruz gave up but it is because he was brow beaten by his rich Republican opponent. Ted Cruz was my first choice, if I voted Republican, and Bernie Sanders my second choice if I voted Democrat. I often vote according to the person. I never vote for the party. That is just plain dumb in my opinion. So if Hillary gets to be the one in the front line and Bernie drops out of the race I will still not vote for Hillary. I am a Democrat who voted for several Republicans in my day and several more Democrats as well. If you think its all about the party think again. I will not vote for anyone unless it is Bernie Sanders. I will not waste my vote on Trump because I do not like his agendas and his arrogance. It's more about the powers that be, and their agenda to keep themselves rich and in control. The candidates who don't rock the status quo will be the ones that get elected. The extremists like Trump will not be able to get anything done because the House and the Senate will VETO him every single time. You want a wall built? By Mexicans from Mexico? Impossible. You want to kick out all the immigrants? That too is impossible. The only way to do these types of things is to go against the very constitution and that is illegal, stupid and down right foolish.

I applaud Bernie Sanders for keeping it going. He truly believes in what he's doing and so do I. I'd love to vote for him in November.

You are like me. You know he is the best man for the job. In spite of all the garbage thrown out about him by his opponents. I wish there was no such thing as dirty politics. I really do like Bernie Sanders. And many like yourself feel this way. He's the man.

@lookatdesktop I have a lot of respect for him. I like his platform and I love how he conducts himself. I really wish he could beat out Hillary and then Trump.

You are so right,Trump is so arrogant you`ll think he`s in one of his business ventures where the person who can flex the most muscles and show he dont give a Sh** of what you thinks wins. Glad this decision has been taken away from me,l dont see myself voting for Trump for any reason,like you, i will consider it a wasted vote.

I have never not voted in an election but this year, what a nightmare @lookatdesktop . My main candidate was Ben Carson. I think I'm moving to Australia.

Ben Carson is too smart to be president.

I hear people saying the Republicans are rigged with their delegates. But, really the Democrats are rigged with their delegates. Bernie Sanders has won States, but Hillary gets more delegates and super delegates than he does? Something is not right with the Democrat distribution of delegates. *To change the subject. I don't know how anyone in this Country could vote for Bernie Sanders when he has outright said he is a Socialist. If he won, he would change this country way more than Obama has! He would set it on more towards a Communistic path! My brother in law escaped Communist Romania in the 1980s and immigrated to America. He tells me that he is more scared of Bernie Sanders than Hillary because he would turn this country into a Communist nation. My brother in law should know because he and his Mom actually lived under that Communist oppression. Do you really want that for this Country? And one more thing, I heard that Bernie and his wife honeymooned in Moscow. What does that tell you?

Cruz threw in the towel because losing Indiana meant Trump had the lock on delegates. BTW, it has now been revealed the hypocrite Cruz was funded by big elitist money. Plus Trump won way more states and votes than Cruz. Bernie has won almost as many states as Hilary and closing the gap on votes. Once upon a time it seemed Hilary had the delegates locked up but she doesn't. Bernie has closed the gap and if he wins California....In other words, Cruz reached a point he was never going to catch Trump while Bernie is doing the seemingly impossible. You think Bernie could get anything done? He would be in the same boat as Trump with Congress against. However, both guys could take a page out of the Obama playbook and exec order.
