The kid is learning about journalism and the political process first-hand. I wouldn't be so hard on him just because he is parroting a question that many adult journalists have asked. A lot of people don't know what's going on with the delegate selection process and now this kid has been told and should be aware that the "beauty contests" do not really have much bearing on delegate selection. Hopefully, he will report accurately on what he has learned today.
Drain the swamp!
