The primary system for the Democratic Party is so corrupt, one MSNBC host wondered why they even bother with voting booths.

Joe Scarborough of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” arrived at this conclusion after Sen. Bernie Sanders ended up with four fewer Wyoming delegates than Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, even though he bested her by double-digits.

“It sounds like he’s winning,” co-host Mika Brzezinski quipped at about the 2:40 mark after reporting that Sanders won 56 percent of the vote there to Clinton’s 44.

“I would not do well as a Democratic politician,” Scarborough put in. “He wins by 12 points, he may not even pick up a single delegate. It’s seven to six now with a remaining delegate to be decided later? I’m sorry, that’s a crushing victory.”

Panelist and political commentator Nicolle Wallace observed that the former secretary of state “only has to get 30 percent of the vote in the remaining contests. I mean, talk about voters feeling like a system might be rigged.”

During the discussion, the final delegate count came in.

“We’re putting up right now a graphic,” Scarborough announced. “Bernie Sanders wins 56 to 44 percent in Wyoming.”

Despite this, he noted that Sanders was awarded seven delegates to Clinton’s 11.

“Why does the Democratic Party even have voting booths,” he wondered. “This system is so rigged.”
