Bernie Sanders wins the Hawaii caucuses in a landslide
Yesterday 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.
