Heading into the 2016 election cycle, the consensus was that Hillary Clinton would face little to no competition and essentially be handed the party's nomination. Despite this, Bernie Sanders has provided a strong challenge, and many of his supporters are not happy with how the current Chair of the Democratic National Committee has handled the primary process.

Democratic primary disaster

What started as a friendly election has turned into a bitter battle between Clinton and Sanders, with supporters of both candidates often getting into a brutal war of words on social media.

The feud on the ground took a turn for the worst last Saturday when the Nevada Democratic Convention spiraled out of control, resulting in a psychical altercation between a Sanders and a Clinton backer. After Sanders refused to disavow the alleged violent behavior of his supporters, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz had harsh words for the senator, saying his response "was anything but acceptable." This issue was discussed during a May 18 interview segment on CNN.

CNN commentator and Democrat, Van Jones, didn't hold back his frustration with Wasserman Schultz, going as far as accusing her of committing "malpractice" for how she has handled the Democratic primary.

"That is malpractice," Jones said, before saying that he wishes RNC Chair Reince Priebus was in charge of the DNC instead. "He did a better job of handling the Trump situation than I've seen my party chair handle this situation," Jones admitted, saying, "I'm ashamed to say that." Jones went on to point out Wasserman Schultz's possible favoritism of Clinton, noting that she "is coming in harder for Hillary Clinton than she is for herself.”

Wasserman Schultz has been under fire for sometime for her alleged bias in favor of Clinton, for whom she worked for during the former Secretary of State's 2008 presidential campaign.

Earlier this week, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski called for the DNC Chair to step down due to allegations of bias against Sanders. Despite the allegations, Wasserman Schultz has denied any favoritism.

Election forecast

With 1,768 pledged delegates, Clinton is also expected to add at least an additional 525 Superdelegates to her total by the time of the Democratic National Convention this July. Though Sanders has 1,494 pledged delegates, he's only predicting 39 Superdelegates to go his way, putting him far behind the required amount to become the party's nominee.
