Bernie Sanders upsets Hillary Clinton in Michigan

March 9, 2016

  The result of the Republican primary in Michigan last night was never really in doubt, but the same cannot be said about the Democratic primary in the state where the former Secretary of State was supposed to skate to an easy victory as she did in Mississippi. It was clear early on that there was going to be a long evening of vote counting before the official results came in and when they did Bernie Sanders scored an upset victory, having bounced back from polls showing him with a double-digit lead. In the end Bernie Sanders won by a margin of 50-48%.

  After having won Mississippi Hillary Clinton had hoped to drive a huge nail in the coffin of the Sanders campaign but instead this victory means that he is going nowhere any time soon. Next up are Ohio and Illinois, it will be interesting to see if the Senator from Vermont will gain momentum from this victory heading into the next contests. If so the road to the White House might take a little bit longer than Hillary Clinton anticipated.

    It would appear that the inability to use her fake black southern baptist accent in Michigan was the difference between a convincing win and a narrow loss. She must work on her negro housing project/hip-hop accent if she is to perform well in the big cities although her big Bertha Butt caboose should have been enough to prove her solidarity and connect her wit dos peeps. Just one man’s opinion.

      Maybe the voters are finally getting tired of her using her fake accent and now realize how demeaning it is!

    It does appear Hillary may have a black/white voter problem. She may not do well outside of the South. If she does become the Democrat nominee she may be vunerable especially if Moderate White Democrats in particular males do not vote for her.

    The RNC is bound and determined to cut off theirs dicks to get Hillary elected if Trump prevails to be the party nominee. They as usual cannot see the larger picture because they want to maintain the status quo.

    If Trump is the Republican nominee there is a need for him to appeal to those Democrats not enthralled with Hillary. His VP choice should reflect this possibility. An non politican is needed if the public is to believe his rhetoric abount ending crony capitalism. A Christe Hefner type of VP may seal the deal. Trump needs a softer less vulgar side that appeals to women and would address social issues. Hefner is not a politican but she has experince in social issues. We need to find a way to reduce the roll of Government in social programs to reduce the ever expanding bureaucracy. The entrenched RNC approach is not working because the elites need the electorate divided and fighting each other.

      There have been several reports about Democratic voters planning on voting for Trump if Hillary is the nominee. In the end will they do it, I don’t know but if they do she is toast.

        In the end, it may depend how far it goes with Hillary’s machinations. Even if she doesn’t get charged, if the FBI leaks some good stuff, or her minions try and save themselves, it could tip the scales.
