Bernie Sanders’ Primary Prospects Are Bleak. He Should Keep Running.
February 27, 2016 - Picnic Time
By mid-Saturday night, with 91 percent of precincts reporting, Clinton hold an roughly 48 indicate advantage over Sanders, 73.5 percent to 23.9 percent. She swept each county, winning blacks 86 percent to 14 percent (surpassing Barack Obama’s 2008 margin), winning whites 54 percent to 46 percent, and even winning really magnanimous voters. As with Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, she lagged with younger voters, losing them 46 percent to Sanders’ 54 percent. Turnout was down from 2008 (361,000 contra 532,000), as it has been, though it’s critical to remember that a competition between Clinton and Obama was most some-more rival than a benefaction one between Sanders and Clinton. Compared to 2004, a standard year, turnout is almost up. And, it should be said, some-more electorate corroborated Clinton than came out for Trump in final week’s Republican primary.
