Bernie Sanders wins the Hawaii caucuses in a landslide

March 27, 2016

bernies-sanders-nutsYesterday was an abysmal day for the former Secretary of State, who had hoped to put Bernie Sanders away in the campaign. Heading into the day Hillary Clinton was hoping to sweep the three caucus states and expand her almost insurmountable delegate lead into an it will take a miracle lead for Bernie Sanders to pull off the upset. 

  But it was not to be because Bernie Sanders destroyed Hillary Clinton in both Washington and Alaska. The Senator from Vermont’s victories were not even close as he won Washington with 73% of the vote and Alaska with a whopping 81%. 

  Hillary Clinton hoped to salvage the day with a victory in Hawaii but she was equally pulverized in that contest as well. 

Sanders was declared the winner in Hawaii, leading Clinton 70.6 percent to 29.2 percent.

  Hillary Clinton can take refuge in the fact that this was Bernie Sanders narrowest victory I suppose. It looks as if Bernie Sanders is going to pick up about 100 delegates with these victories and although Hillary Clinton still has a large delegate lead, and the support of the superdelegates, this could provide the Vermont Senator with a much needed lift and make the contest just a little more interesting heading into the next contests.

    In the immortal words of Alfred E Newman, “What, me worry.” The nightmare in a pantsuit has this nomination in the bag. The only thing that could stop her is an Obama third term. Choose your poison.

      Yeah, the party has rigged this system for Hillary and Bernie is screwed. I see no difference between an Obama third term and a Hillary Presidency…

    Ya, I think you are right, Peter….but it stills makes me smile thinking she is NOT a happy camper with Bernie winning anything. She thinks she is “all that”, as they say and she is far from it. Wow, a third term of Obama, only if he declares it for some reason and that is not entirely unexpected if he does. We are in a bad place here.

      I am with you Lou. Hillary is going to win but it is enjoyable to see her have to work for it!
