this happens virtually EVERY election in NY, regardless of race, position, political leaning, etc....

Upstate votes..... 50+ counties.

Then the 4 NYC counties vote....

And the 4 NYC counties outweigh the rest....

I feel bad for upstate NY voters, the city literally shits on them every election and pushes their bullshit free reign. Between them and rural Californians i don't know who has it the shittiest.

Sorry Mr. Sanders, that's how our system works.  Representation based on population, not number of counties.  That's why Chi-raq outweighs the rest of the state of Illinois...

Ayep.  And people get upset as the separation movement is gaining speed.  Sure, upstate might not have as much revenue as it does now, but at least we'd have a say in our own government.  Not that the split would ever happen, it would require the legislature to act in the interest of the people....

Consider it "tied for first", because both get shit on heavily.

The same thing happens here in WA, The majority of the state (geographically) will vote Republican, but King county (Seattle) has all the votes and the Democrat wins every time. (yes I'm aware this is the primaries, not rep v dem)
I'm sure this is the case in may states where much of the state is sparsely populated; with one or two major metropolitan areas, chock full of FSA and idiots that love to tax themselves. Nevermind the rest of the state is not interested in their special interest bullshit.

The elections should be changed to one delegate per county.
The number of people in each county should not be a factor.
That would give everyone equal footing, and keep the cities from controlling the whole state.
I know it will never happen though.

Last time I checked 2 years ago Upstate had more registered voters than NYC and Long Island.

That's how we lost the governor's race to Cumhole, 57 counties voted Astorino and the city and one upstate county voted blue.

Buffalo, Albany Syracuse and Binghamton are those blue counties, except for those weird fucks up in Plattsburgh who are probably all prison guards or who knows what?  Oh and Ithaca,  Upstate's Berkeley. Surprised Monroe/Rochester did not go blue, they have a blood soaked ghetto that puts the other upstate shithole cities to shame.

Is Rochester worse than Buffalo? Syracuse is getting dumpier by the year too....I used to live in Victor...so I have no idea.   I now live in Chemung county, uphill from Helmira so my closest comparison is West Virgina....or maybe Best Korea.



I'm getting closer to the boarder....on top of the right hill I can see freedom.

Is that why it always goes blue there? I always wondered about that.

What difference does it make how many counties he won?  If that means something, then expand that thinking to the actual presidential election.  Look at the map with alllll the red counties and a few blue... Republicans win every presidential election.

There are a lot of folks on the gov't teat up this way.  The running joke in Franklin County is that 9 mos after the county fair there's a whole new batch of welfare babies, but unfortunately there's some truth to it.  There're a lot of seasonal workers too, they just want to work long enough so they can collect unemployment the rest of the year
