      1. It’s a PRIMARY, not the general election. If you register as unenrolled then you can pick which party’s primary you will vote for but you cannot do more than one. It is not just a Massachusetts thing it is a NATIONAL thing. What’s your point?

        1. Some states have open primary elections which allow registered Independants to vote within one party’s primary. Massachusetts only allows people belonging to the party to vote in primaries.

        2. Joyce Today means a lot too maybe not for Mr. Donald and Republicans but the ballot also includes the North End which is “A Massachusetts thing” I would think it’s a good idea to just pick a group. North End can use help a lot with stuff.

  1. I’ve got to laugh. The Boston Globe is predicting Bernie Sanders to beat Elizabeth Warren in Massacusetts. She will come rolling into Super Tuesday with zip delegates and never getting to 10% in any primary. On Tearful Wednesday she might be in the same shape. All that money that she raised, does she get to keep it?

  2. Warren AKA Dana Carveys SNL character the church lady is finished. She flipped on Medicare for all, after preaching against accepting PAC money , she just accepted it.When she was reelected to the Senate she said she had no intention of running for President. Now she has to kiss up to Sanders in the hope he wins the nomination and selects her as his VP running mate.

    1. Flipped is the operative word. Let’s face it, failed senators run for President. Gets worse on Tuesday when Bloomberg enters. He asked a great question of Sanders in the debate (no body wastes their time any more taking shots at Warren); how come you haven’t sold any of this to anyone in the Senate. Same could be asked of Warren. After all the Democratic Senate elected Shummer as their minority leader, not Sander or Warren. They weren’t even considered. And Shummer reports to Jamie Dimon. So much for their Socialist agenda.
