TONIGHT IS BERNIE’S BIG CHANCE … DO DEMOCRATS REALLY WANT CHANGE OR JUST CLINTON?
As reported at the Politico, Hillary Clinton looks unbeatable in Florida but a strong Sanders performance in the industrial Midwest could give his campaign new life. With three key states in play today for Sanders, Ohio, Illinois and Missouri, is it possible that the candidate thought to be just a straw man for the Hillary Clinton expected Democrat nomination, could actually make a race of this? Sanders unexpected win in Michigan could propel him through “Rust Belt” states. We shall see. The untold story from the MSM is that if Sanders starts winning states, especially winner take all primaries, the Democrat party voters are going to be taking a closer and closer look as to why Sanders is so far behind the establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton. Can you say the fix is in with “Super Delegates.”
In the final days before Tuesday’s primaries, Bernie Sanders was closing fast in the polls in three of the five states voting, raising the prospect of yet another indecisive Democratic election night, this one marked by Hillary Clinton bolstering her delegate lead but Sanders performing well enough to slingshot into what his campaign argues will be its most important stretch yet.
The Vermont senator’s best case scenario Tuesday has him pulling out three victories – he’s within single digits of Clinton in the latest polls in Illinois, Missouri and Ohio – an outcome that would rattle the race and raise new questions about the durability of the Clinton campaign.
Even if Tuesday doesn’t significantly alter the delegate math that makes Clinton the prohibitive front-runner, a strong Sanders performance in the industrial Midwest will make possible the long campaign that the senator and his aides switched to after their big and unexpected loss in the Nevada caucuses.
Few large caucus states are left on the map, but seven states are up between March 15 and April 5, including the Arizona primary, four caucuses — in Idaho, Utah, Alaska, and Washington — where the Vermont senator is hoping to pick up steam again, and a sixth primary — Wisconsin — where he’s expecting a big win to cap off the two-week run. (Hawaii, caucusing on March 26, is rarely included in the calculus.)
Socialist Bernie Sanders Gains on Clinton Ahead of Tuesday Primary Contests in Ohio, Illinois & Missouri
DON’T LOOK NOW HILLARY, YOU GOT A SOCIALIST ON YOUR TAIL …
Just before today’s Tuesday Democrat primary votes, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton in Missouri and has cut into the Democratic front-runner’s lead in Ohio and Illinois. The three states are considered a toss up. The MSM can make all the claims they want about the dysfunction on the GOP side, it is actually the Democrats that are in complete disarray and face a possible civil war in the party. It is remarkable to think that Sanders is posing any challenge to Clinton. However, it shows just how wounded a candidate she is, just how much the Democrats despise the establishment also, and just how Far Left the Democrat party has become.
The race for the Democratic presidential nomination is tightening, with Bernie Sanders closing in on Hillary Clinton in two important contests.
Sanders is leading Clinton in Missouri and has cut into the Democratic front-runner’s lead in Ohio and Illinois, according to a new survey the left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP).
All three states now look like toss-ups, with the PPP poll showing Sanders trailing Clinton by just 5 points, 46 percent to 41 percent, in Ohio.
The change is particularly notable because several polls in Ohio at the beginning of the month showed Clinton with a 20- to 30-point lead over the Vermont senator.
The race has drawn much closer since Sanders’s surprise win in Michigan; he also trailed by double-digits in that state weeks before its primary.
In Illinois, Clinton gets 48 percent in the PPP survey compared to 45 percent for Sanders.
In Missouri, Sanders gets 47 percent to 46 percent for Clinton, according to PPP.
Clinton has larger leads in two other states holding contests on Tuesday: Florida and North Caroli
Univision Debate Moderator Jorge Ramos asks Hillary Clinton if She Will Drop Out of the Campaign, “If You get Indicted, will you Drop Out?” (VIDEO)
WOW, HAVE TO GIVE JORGE RAMOS CREDIT .. HE ASKED THE QUESTION THAT THE REST OF THE GUTLESS MSM HAS BEEN AFRAID TO ASK CLINTON …
Univision Debate Moderator Jorge Ramos went there last night and actually asked the question that the rest of the gutless MSM, including FOX News, has been unwilling and afraid to ask … “If You get Indicted, will you Drop Out?”
It was quite the uncomfortable moment in the Democrat debate for Hillary Clinton as she tried to laugh off the question and then not really answer it. She actually dismissed the question. Really Hillary? There are between 100-150 FBI agents working on your private email scandal and crimes and you are so flipped about it. She responded to Ramos by saying, “That is not going to happen. I’m not even answering that question.”
Univision debate moderator Jorge Ramos confronted Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Wednesday over her email scandal, directly asking her if she would drop out of the race for her party’s nomination if she were indicted.
“If you get indicted, will you drop out?” he asked her.
The former secretary of state refused to answer the question.
“Oh, for goodness,” she started when Ramos pressed her on the issue after she initially danced around it. “It’s not going to happen. I’m not even answering that question.”
And you hear the clapping of the sycophants in the audience when Hillary gave her lie-packed answers that everyone did it. Really? Everyone had a private email server in their bathroom? Imagine how the crowd would be reacting if it were a Republican who had done the same thing. Last time I checked Hillary, 150 FBI agents were not investigating any other past Secretary of States. ONLY YOU!
Let’s see if she’s laughing when the FBI brings down their decision.
Hillary feels the Bern in Michigan …
In a stunning turn, or is the “bern” of events last night, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sander defeated Hillary Clinton in the Michigan Democrat primary, 50% to 48%.As the Politico opines, the outcome in Michigan is significant for Sanders because it demonstrates an ability to compete in diverse primary states. Could Hillary Clinton really be in a dog fight the rest of the way with Sanders? Most likely Hillary will win, however, the longer this goes, the more contempt Sanders voters will have for the presumptive, establishment nominee and may not show up to vote in November.
This is truly an incredible defeat for Clinton and a motivating victory for Team Sanders as prior to the Michigan primaries, Clinton was leading in the polls by between 20 and 30 points. OUCH!!!
Bernie Sanders scored one of the biggest victories of his underdog campaign Tuesday by beating Hillary Clinton in Michigan, a delegate-rich state where she led by double digits in the closing days before voting.
The 2-point upset came after both candidates invested time and money in the state, and fuels the argument from Sanders’ camp that he should not be written off after Clinton’s earlier wins.
The outcome in Michigan is significant for Sanders because it demonstrates an ability to compete in diverse primary states — counteracting a knock frequently leveled at him by Clinton allies that he has only performed well in largely white states.
“What tonight means is the Bernie Sanders campaign, the people’s revolution that we are talking about, the political revolution we have been talking about, is strong in every part of the country,” Sanders told reporters in Miami before the race was called. He predicted success in upcoming states, including in the West.
How on Earth is Clinton struggling to put a socialist away in the primary? With her loss in Michigan, could Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania be in play as well? Check out the Democratic Primary Exit Poll Analysis:
Liberal Bastion of Sports ESPN Addresing Baseball Analyst Curt Schilling’s Comments that Hillary Clinton Should be “Buried Under a Jail.”
WHY WE LOVE CURT SCHILLING …
It would appear that the Entertainment Sports Progressive Network has its panties in a wad again because one of their analysts dare say something derogatory about a liberal. This time they are reviewing former Boston Red Sox great Curt Schilling, that of the 2004 ALCS game 6 “bloody” sock fame, for his comments on Tuesday with 610 sports radio in Kansas City, MO where he said, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should be “buried under a jail.”You can listen to his comments HERE.
The one thing Curt Schilling is, besides being one of the best big game MLB pitchers, is outspoken. Well Curt, I am not sure about buried under a jail, but I am certain that she should be in a federal prison some where for her actions regarding State Department classified emails on her private server. One thing is for certain, if it were any of of us who did what Hillary Clinton did, we would have already been indicted, tried, found guilty and in prison. Look for the liberals at ESPN to reprimand or fire Schilling. I wonder if it wold be different for Kurt if he changed his name to Caitlyn?
ESPN baseball analyst Curt Schilling appeared to violate the network’s guidelines when he told a radio station that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should be “buried under a jail.”
ESPN said Wednesday, “We are addressing it” and would not go into further details.
Schilling, however, said jokingly at the end of the radio interview that he would “probably get fired.”
The former all-star pitcher made the controversial comments Tuesday with 610 sports radio in Kansas City, Missouri.
Schilling, who has been known for his outspoken political comments, was asked if Clinton should go to prison for accusations that she put classified State Department emails on a private server.
“I hope she does. If I’m going to believe, and I don’t have any reason not to believe, that she gave classified information on hundreds if not thousands of emails on a public server after what happened to General Petraeus, she should buried under a jail somewhere,” Schilling said.
Remember last year when Curt Schilling got in trouble with ESPN for comparing Muslim extremists to Nazis? That got him suspended. Really? So you mean radical Islam is not like the Nazi’s? REALLY?
SUPER TUESDAY – Democrat Primary: Hillary Clinton May Have Won 7 States … But Socialist Bernie Sanders Won 4 (VT, OK, CO and MN)
Vermont, Oklahoma, Colorado and Minnesota feel the Bern …
Super Tuesday may have been a big night for the presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton as she swept through many Southern states, but forgive me if I find it remarkable that self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders actually won 4 states. Never would I ever have picked 4 as the number of states Sanders would win. In the end Sanders defeated Clinton in the People Republic of Vermont, no surprise there, in Colorado, Minnesota and to the surprise of many, Oklahoma.
Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton racked up a string of wins across the south on Super Tuesday, as she widened her lead in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination over rival Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Clinton was projected to win in seven states–Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Virginia and Texas, where the largest number of delegates were at stake. The narrow win in Massachusetts was a particular prize as Sanders has run strongly in other New England contests.
In retrospect, I guess we can understand how Sanders won Minnesota, what has become a liberal states, and of course Colorado. Many have suggested that Bernie Sanders could win the Democrat primaries if along with all the other freebies he has promised the electorate, he would also promise free pot for all. Thus, one can now understand why the Rocky Mountain High state felt the “Bern” last night. But the head scratcher has to be Oklahoma. Really?
Following his Super Tuesday victories Sanders stated, “This is not a general election, it’s not winner-take-all. If you get 52 percent or 48 percent, you end up with roughly the same amount of delegates.” He vowed to fight on. That may all sound good, but the Democrat establishment have stacked the cards against Sanders with “Super Delegates” that have all but broke for Hillary Clinton.
SUPER TUESDAY: Socialist Bernie Sanders Wins Vermont Over Clinton … Probably the Only State He Will Win
VERMONT FEELS THE BERN …
Socialist Bernie Sanders is the projected winner for the People’s Republic of Vermont. The Burlington Free Press is stating that Bernie Sanders is the winner of the Democrat primary over Hillary Clinton in Vermont. However, it appears that it is going to be a long night for the self-proclaimed socialist.
Bernie Sanders is the projected winner of Vermont Democratic presidential primary.
His rival for the nomination, Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, was projected to win Georgia and Virginia, according to calls made by news networks including The Associated Press and CNN moments after the polls closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
With less than 1 percent of the returns in, the democratic socialist from Vermont was projected to best former Secretary of State Clinton by a wide margin.
HILLARY CLINTON FEELS THE BERN …
Are you kidding, self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders is now leading Hillary Clinton in a national poll. According to the latest FOX News poll, Sanders leads Clinton by 3 points, 47% to 44%. This is stunning, simply stunning. That’s a 10-point rise for Sanders and a five-point drop for Hillary during the last month. As Red State opines, just two months ago Hillary led by 22 points. Has the Democrat party truly become the socialist party and given up on Hillary Clinton and all her baggage? You just might be witnessing the collapse of Hillary Clinton and the Democrat party becoming the new Socialist party.
Full Poll results HERE.
Bernie Sanders now tops Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic nomination.
The latest Fox News national poll finds 47 percent of Democratic primary voters now back the Vermont senator, up from 37 percent in January. Clinton gets 44 percent, down from 49 percent a month ago.
This is the first time Sanders has been ahead of Clinton, who not long ago was regularly described as the “presumptive Democratic nominee.”
Clinton led Sanders in the Fox poll by as many as 46 points last summer, and had a 22-point lead as recently as two months ago.
HILLARY IN DEEP TROUBLE IN NEVADA …
According to a recent CNN poll, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders are in a virtual tie ahead of Saturday’s Nevada caucuses. Hillary Clinton’s Nevada firewall has crumbled. The poll shows that 48% of likely caucus attendees say they support Clinton, while 47% support Sanders. The state’s caucuses takes place on Saturday, February 20. Is it possible that Hillary could lose again to someone who was initially believed to be an also-ran? Just how weak a candidate is Hillary Clinton and what is going to happen to her campaign if, or should we say when, the FBI recommends charges for crimes related to her private email server?
Likely Democratic caucusgoers in Nevada are split almost evenly between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders ahead of Saturday’s caucuses, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.
Though Clinton holds an edge over Sanders on handling a range of top issues, the results suggest the extremely close race hinges on divided opinions on the economy.
Overall, 48% of likely caucus attendees say they support Clinton, 47% Sanders. Both candidates carry their demographic strong points from prior states into Nevada, with Clinton holding an edge among women, while Sanders tops the former secretary of state among voters under age 55.
“Overall, Clinton holds broad advantages as more trusted on foreign policy, race relations, immigration and health care, but likely caucusgoers are split 48% for Clinton and 47% for Sanders on the economy,” CNN reported. “Among those likely caucusgoers who call the economy their top issue in choosing a candidate, more support Sanders: 52% back him vs. 43% for Clinton.”
Two Faces of Democrat Chucky Schumer … FLASHBACK: In 2007, Schumer Called For Blocking All Bush Supreme Court Nominations (VIDEO)
The lying, duplicitous, double-talking Democrat Chucky Schumer was against lame duck presidential SCOTUS appointments, before he was for it …
So Schumer was all for the status quo of the balance of power of the SCOTUS in 2007, why not now? Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer took to the Sunday talk shows to state that the Republicans had no right to block Barack Obama from appointing a new SCOTUS following the sudden death Justice Antonin Scalia over the weekend. Scumer was appalled that the GOP would do such a thing. REALLY? It was just in 2007 while GWB was in his final 18 months of his presidency that Schumer stated the exactly same thing. The hypocritical Schumer vowed not to confirm any justices for the remainder of Bush’s term in office. But of course this is different, because an Obama nominee would be a liberal ideologue.
“We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances … Considering the Constitutional harm and dramatic departures that are in store if those few are joined by one more ideological ally … I will do everything in my power to prevent one more ideological ally from joining Roberts and Alito on the court.”
Now all of a sudden Schumer is whining and crying a river of obstruction when they , namely he, stated to do the same. Schumer stated in his ABC interview, we Democrats didn’t do it. REALLY?
During a Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer decried the intent of many Senate Republicans to prevent President Barack Obama from appointing the successor to deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
But less than a decade ago, Schumer advocated doing the same exact thing if any additional Supreme Court vacancies opened under former President George W. Bush.
Almost immediately after Scalia’s death was announced Saturday evening, Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates began arguing the appointment of his successor should be left to the next president. Schumer lamented this outlook as pure obstructionism.
Hmm … Schumer claims the Democrats have never done this before … can you say BORK?
