Many of these websites also claimed that there were incidences of voter fraud being reported in real time during the primary, but that seemed mostly due to some faulty machines, some disorganized polling places, and of course poorly prepared Sanders supporters.
Even before the uncounted ballots were tallied up Politifact gave the reporting that Sanders would win California a "Pants on Fire" rating.
Well now those uncounted ballots have been counted, and as expected it changed nothing.
By the way I have every confidence that supporters of Bernie Sanders will continue to cry foul and refuse to accept that this election was not stolen from him.No change in the margin: still exactly 12.7-pt lead. https://t.co/KJ18u1U4cO— Will Jordan (@williamjordann) June 10, 2016
Which is really sad because the Sanders' campaign actively fed into this conspiratorial thinking and may actually have helped to disenfranchise thousands of young voters who may take decades to ever trust the system enough to participate again.
Unless of course they succeed in convincing Sanders to run as a third party candidate.
In that case Sanders will of course still fail to win the presidency but he can take solace in the fact that he will become one of the most hated men in America if his clumsy attempt undermines the Clinton campaign and allows Donald Trump to emerge victorious.
