Hillary Clinton crushes Bernie Sanders in the South Carolina Democratic primary

February 27, 2016

  Hillary Clinton has defeated Bernie Sanders in the Democratic South Carolina primary and it was not even close. In fact this victory was so lopsided that on its website CNN called the race at 7:00 with 0% of the precincts reporting. The original projections I saw earlier tonight predicted the former Secretary of State would beat the Senator from Vermont by 30 points, however as I write this Mrs. Clinton is defeating Mr. Sanders by almost 50 points with 81% of the precincts reporting.

  This lead may shrink slightly when the last 19% of the votes are counted but I would expect this tally to be close to the eventual margin of victory. This is a huge momentum builder for Hillary Clinton heading into super Tuesday and it could signal the end of the controlled opposition–Bernie Sanders. 

  Bernie Sanders supporters can take some solace in the fact that, much like New Hampshire, South Carolina awards the delegates on a proportional basis–it is not a winner take all State. In New Hampshire Bernie Sanders soundly defeated Hillary Clinton by 20+ points yet they both were awarded the same amount of delegates. This should bode well for Bernie Sanders because it should mean he would gain enough delegates to remain competitive on super Tuesday, right?

  Well, not so fast. If this is what supporters of Bernie Sanders are thinking they are forgetting the pesky little issue of the way the Democrats have rigged the system using the superdelegates to ensure the elitist party favorite wins the nomination. Hillary Clinton was awarded the same amount of delegates in New Hampshire due to the superdelegates who have pledged to support her in the State, and she locked up half of the superdelegates in South Carolina before the primary even started, so unlike New Hampshire the Democratic party will not be spreading the delegates around in South Carolina.

    In the final analysis it may be that the brain dead South CRolinians prefer a phoney negro baptist accent to a Brooklyn, NY accent. Or could it be they prefer a partially in the closet commie with a vagina over an in your face card carrying viagra gulping commie. Bernie best hop in his VW bus and hightail it back to Vermont where they’re sure to keep him in his sinecure for life.

      Either way they prefer a commie… 😉
      I hope that bus is warming up because it is just about time for Bernie to go home.
