There’s still 272 days until anyone can vote in the Democratic primaries, but sources say that former Vice President Joe Biden’s already secretly working to put the fix in.
In fact, he’s using the same game plan that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used in 2016: by stealing the election right out from under the party’s voters.
And the person warning Democrats loudest about the dirty insider scam is none other than President Donald Trump!
Before former Biden even got into the race, his campaign manager Greg Schultz held hundreds of behind-closed-doors meetings with the top leaders of the Democratic Party.
Schultz met with the chief of staff in each of the 235 Democrat-controlled House seats—telling them to shut out Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-V.T., one more time.
Biden’s right-hand man met with top Hill staffers because, under party rules, each one of them gets an automatic vote at the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee.
Here’s how it works.
After all the primaries, caucus votes, and campaign events, only one number really matters: 2,026.
That’s how many delegates the candidate has to have at the Democratic National Convention to become the presidential nominee.
There are 765 “superdelegates”—the high-powered party elites who actually run everything behind the scenes (and they like it that way).
If one candidate wins all the superdelegates’ votes, he’ll have 37% of the total delegates he’d need to become the candidate — almost four out of 10 — before a single vote is cast!
A candidate can lose most primaries but still come out ahead if the superdelegates say the word. Does that sound democratic?

But that’s exactly the way Hillary Clinton’s unpopular campaign managed to slide by three years ago. They announced that Hillary already had 20% of all the votes she needed to be the nominee five months before the Iowa caucus…thanks to committed “superdelegates.”
Her special, inside job let Hillary lose primaries to Bernie Sanders but mysteriously keep on coming out with more delegates than he did.
Every time Bernie would beat her, a few more party insiders would stand behind her faltering campaign.
Four years later, not much has changed—only now it’s Biden trying to cheat Sanders out of the nomination.
Party elites are scared stiff the Vermont socialist could actually pull it off this time. The Clinton’s attack dog, David Brock, has been warning everyone he can that “Sanders can end up winning this thing.”

Brock — and Hillary — want the superdelegates to leave Sanders out in the cold again. The media hasn’t said a word — but Trump is trying to sound the alarm.
“The Democratic National Committee, sometimes referred to as the DNC, is again working its magic in its quest to destroy Crazy Bernie Sanders for the more traditional, but not very bright, Sleepy Joe Biden,” President Trump warned on Twitter.
“Here we go again Bernie,” he warned.
“But this time please show a little more anger and indignation when you get screwed!” Trump said.

Bernie has complained about the superdelegate screw-job since the end of the 2016 campaign. He even talked about reforming the DNC’s rules to make the nomination fairer—but guess what got done?
Absolutely nothing. The Clinton/Obama machine saw to that.
So, Biden plans to lean on the same party hacks that Hillary used to win three years ago.
A few other presidential hopefuls caught wind and jumped into the superdelegate race. Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Kamala Harris have started wining and dining the party elites in hopes they’ll peel off enough to stay in the game.
But Bernie Sanders — who consistently comes in first or second in the polls with the party’s grassroots — seems to be tuned out.
“Look, it’s smart politics in the sense that, if you have the bandwidth and capacity to do it, it’d be very smart to be ready for that contingency,” said Mark Longabaugh, who ran Sanders’ floor game at the 2016 Democratic convention.“But I would argue for putting more time into trying to win Iowa and New Hampshire.”

Biden and his well-connected backers plan to win however they can…but winning the nomination might just cost them the election, the way it did Hillary Clinton in 2016.
About 12% of Bernie Sanders’ supporters in the primaries voted for Donald Trump in the general election, according to a massive survey of 50,000 voters.
Biden might be setting up Bernie to lose… but he may just be the one headed for a fall in the fall of 2020.
