I was just reading a thread that went through the typical talking point maelstrom: DNC corruption vs. didn't support Hillary vs. not a real Democrat vs. 3rd parties split votes, FPTP system vs. doesn't fundraise for party vs. progressive caucus Etc. Etc.
No one ever seems to talk about reforming the many state's closed primaries so that they're more inclusive and alllow for more independent participation. It's arguable that this was a large component among the many other advantages Clinton had over him in the primary, no?
He did great in states with open caucuses and poorly in closed primaries. It was certainly a talking point at the time(https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/2016/4/28/11469468/open-primaries-closed-primaries-sanders) but for some reason doesn't get hurled by Bernie Bros at Shillbots with nearly the same frequency as these other, arguably less important, tired old talking points.
The issue of super delegates was dealt with. What gives?
