Younger voters supporting Obama (59% vs 38% for Clinton, says CNN)
No surprise here.

I just wish they would stop reporting (with no details given) that Clinton "won" Michigan. Taking 55% of the vote in an election where the other guy's name is not even on the ballot is not the same, I feel.

I totally agree. Michigan was not an election for the Dems. It was merely selection by default. This just makes me not like Hillary even more because the other guys at least were standing up for what they believe in (by getting off the ballot). Hillary must have known that this would happen, and I would bet that she took advantage of the situation.

Same with Florida. Stop calling it a "win" for Hillary. I actually think that 55% isn't very good considering she was the only one. 40% of people voted "uncommitted," which is really a vote for no one, and I think speaks more loudly than H's 55%.

I agree and go one step further.
Knowing that there wasn't an election on the Democratic side in Michigan, because I could not legally vote for one of her opponents, and now she wants the credit for the win and the theoretical delegates...
What makes it wrong when George W. Bush steals an election and right if Hillary does?
I cannot, due to this, vote for Hillary in November if she wins the nomination.

I have noticed a distinct and strong bias for Hillary in the media establishment. She is the candidate people are supposed to pick. I don't know why, and it's very weird to observe the subtle and not-so-subtle biases from a vantage point that's largely outside the process. It makes me wonder what's really going on.

I believe Hillary is a status-quo candidate. I do not like the status quo. I do not like it one teeny-tiny bit.
