The Real Numbers: Puerto Rico

The Writing of John Laurits

puerto rico

Greetings, my friends! Today, I’d like to take a look at our numbers in Puerto Rico, whose June 5th primary is fast approaching. I have high hopes that Puerto Rico will be joining our political revolution but, unlike the talking heads, I’m going to explain to you  why  I think that & show you the numbers that support what I’m saying.

So — what are the numbers?

First off, here’s one very good thing — Puerto Rico was originally going to hold a closed caucus but, as of March 8th, 2016, Puerto Rico has changed its plan and there will now be an open primary! (which is good because that means that anyone can vote for Sanders, regardless of which party they are registered with)

Now — on to the numbers.

Puerto Rico is home to 3.5 million American citizens and there are 60 pledged delegates at stake on June 5th.
