In a few hours the Democratic voters of South Carolina will start heading to the polls to determine who will win their state’s presidential primary and how they will apportion the states 59 available delegates to this summer’s convention in Philadelphia.
It’s looking good for Hillary Clinton right now as she seeks to build on the momentum of her win a few days ago in Nevada and keep it going into the critical March 1 Super Tuesday contests.
Sec. Clinton is maintaining her huge double digit polling lead overall and her big lead with African-American voters in this state despite attempts by Sen. Bernie Sanders to reach out to this critical Democratic voting bloc. African-American voters will comprise up to 50% of the people casting ballots in this primary contest.
But as any political observer will tell you, the only poll that matters is the one being conducted at the ballot box, and we’ll see who wins when the polls close later tonight at 7 PM EST.
