Another Split Decision In The March 8 Democratic Primary Contests

There were two primary contests Tuesday in Mississippi and Michigan that were favored to go in Sec. Hillary Clinton’s direction on this International Women’s Day.

Once again, the Black vote mattered as she stomped Sanders in
Mississippi in another electoral blowout by an 83-17% margin.  Michigan
however turned out to be a Sanders upset as the white independent and
crossover Republicans vote helped Sanders as he eked out an upset
victory that for now, has the Sanders peeps crowing until Saturday.

A little reality check for sanders folks.  He’s still trailing in the all important delegate count and in fact because of the Clinton blowout in Mississippi LOST ground because of the proportional allocation rules.

Clinton finished the night with 88 delegates while Sanders picked up 70,and she’s now up 761 to 547 not including the superdelegates which Sanders still massively trails in.

On to the March 15 contests in Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, and Ohio.
