Sanders upsets Clinton

When thinking about the way in which Bernie Sanders trounced Hillary Clinton, it's worth noting that as recently as January, Clinton was leading Sanders in the New Hampshire polls:
Sanders didn’t just win in New Hampshire. He undermined Clinton’s campaign so badly, she may never recover.

CONCORD, New Hampshire — Hundreds of Bernie Sanders’s supporters packed into a high school gym here—after waiting outside in frigid temperatures to file through metal detectors one-by-one—to celebrate his big win. Meanwhile, about 20 miles away, a loyal crowd tried to keep its collective chin up as Hillary Clinton conceded defeat in the first Democratic primary contest.

The contrast highlights just how much damage Sanders is doing to Clinton’s campaign. Even though he’s still a longshot to snag the nomination, his candidacy is persuading young voters, women, and progressives that Clinton is in the pocket of big banks and corrupt corporations—and it’s persuading Clinton’s own supporters that they’re on the sadder side of this contest.

It remains to be seen, of course, if Sanders will actually be able to pick up any more wins. Current polls indicate that Sanders’s campaign in the other early states will be much trickier than his efforts in New Hampshire. Clinton’s double-digit leads in South Carolina and Nevada might have given a few of his supporters pause.

But those supporters weren’t in Concord tonight.

The gym his supporters packed into brimmed with unmitigated glee. An eclectic crowd danced, chanted, foot-stomped, and overall whooped it up for the democratic-socialist turned Democratic primary champion.

And the crowd’s devotion to their candidate highlighted just how much damage his candidacy is doing to Clinton’s—even if she’s the party’s ultimate nominee, which still seems all but guaranteed.
Considering that Sanders gained 25 points on Clinton in New Hampshire in just a single month, it seems insane to put any weight at all on Clinton's 29.5 percent advantage in South Carolina that dates back to the week of January 17th.

I suspect that Sanders has dealt Hillary her death blow, everyone just hasn't realized it yet. It's not as if Hillary is particularly popular in the South, after all. And let's face it, there wouldn't be all this talk about Biden getting into the race if anyone had any confidence in Hillary, who appears to be the least competent establishment favorite since Bob Dole.

I mean, she managed to lose 83 percent of the young female vote to a 74-year-old gamma male... while running on her vagina. She is spectacularly unlikable; young women openly hate her. And remember, despite all the revised expectations in the new narrative, she was the favorite in New Hampshire until her Iowa debacle.

I'm deeply convinced that there will be an anti-Hillary preference cascade hitting, and probably hitting hard. Right now all the rabbits are supporting her because a) she's a woman and b) she's the one all the other rabbits are supporting. But rabbits are fickle creatures. Now that she's started losing, they can't be counted on at all. If Bernie trounces her like this once or twice more, you're going to have an all out SJW feeding frenzy as they turn their two minutes hate on her.

At the same time in parallel, Bill got a huge pass for his sexual behavior in the 90s because he supported all the right causes at the time. Unfortunately for Hillary, today the "right cause" means condemning everything about her husband. A completely separate track is set up for the SJWs to turn on her.

SJWs always eat their own, and nobody is better set up to be the next meal than the Clintons. Nobody. This one's going to get ugly before it's over.

Good thing I bought all that popcorn at the start of election season.

He will get the nomination.

@8, Dave

Remember what the media did with the "out of touch" meme after Bush Sr. expressed surprise at how supermarket scanners worked? I think if this was any other person not named Clinton, they would indeed be painted as totally out of touch with reality.

Maybe better political heads here have a better thought about this, but I just don't see Biden being allowed to enter the race this year. That would leave Obama's legacy vulnerable to multiple attacks on many fronts from Trump on down.

A president whose shaky legacy was torn apart before he even left office officially? Unheard of. Even Nixon's legacy wasn't trashed like Obama's would be. Just my opinion.

When you drag out 70something drooling members of the Spinster Cartel to finger-wag young women to vote for you, well...

Hillary's appeal to the South seems the height of desperation. If he wins the nomination, is it a stretch to foresee Trump carrying the South, the non-coastal West, Florida, Texas and a good deal of the Midwest? I wouldn't think so.

The Republican Establishment needs to worry too much about trying to save its own sinking ship to play any games with the Democratic nomination process. And when the GOPe is faced with Trump vs. Sanders... they may finally come around to seeing Trump as not so bad after all. Maybe.

You never know what those idiotic back-stabbing quislings will do. Maybe they'll actually stump for Sanders out of spite and his promise to keep the government big.

I know most people in this neighborhood think we're doomed, and maybe we are regardless. But this election should tell us something about how deeply we have rotted from inside. A Hillary victory would mean that the majority of the electorate would knowingly elect a criminal grifter. Her stumbles thus far provide some hope that we are not completely decrepit yet.

Blogger Hostem Populi February 10, 2016 11:14 AM  

@17 People who nerd out for politics are the only ones who get how the party nomination process works, which means most Americans are clueless. Typically, much like the electoral college, the popular vote and delegate count wind up meaning the same thing, so no one pays it close attention. Assuming that the DNC is trying to game the system for HRC, I'd imagine they'll have a choice between shenanigans and hoping that the rabbits don't revolt, or going along with whoever wins the beauty contest and taking their chances.

TLDR The Dems will hand the nomination to HRC if they believe they can get away with it, because that's the whole point of a tedious, byzantine system that doesn't make sense.

Blogger tz February 10, 2016 11:14 AM  

The lizard queen melts down. Sanders is winning by just not being unlikable. Hillary is like that horrid aunt that you don't want to invite over for the holidays but feel obliged to. The problem for any latecomers is that it takes some effort to create a campaign, and with only two, Bernie should get enough delegates for a first ballot even with Hillary grabbing the Superdelegates. This also assumes she won't be indicted. Other than assassination (Oh, he was just too old and had a heart attack in Fr. Marcy Park), Bernie will be the nominee.

The establishment is hated. On the other side Jeb! is still slipping though he is spending. If Rubio and Bush split Florida, Trump wins 99 there. Cruz is the pander bear of the group - Evangelical in IA, Libertarian in NH, probably back to Evangelical in SC with revised dirty tricks. Trump will need to fight, but not hard.

Anonymous Napoleon 12pdr February 10, 2016 11:20 AM  

denektnorsk, it depends on how the superdelegates actually vote. In 2008, Clinton had won more delegates in primaries than Obama, but the superdelegates were about one-third of the total at the Democrat convention and he won the nomination handily.

I see several ways this can develop. The Democrat Establishment is realizing that Clinton is a scandal-ridden, unlikeable loser of a candidate. Sanders is honest, but a leftist nutjob. Their least bad option is Biden...but he comes with the Obama millstone around his neck.

I think there's a distinct likelihood of a brokered Democrat convention. And the FBI investigation is the perfect weapon to take Clinton out. The big nightmare for the Dems is Sanders going in with a majority of delegates...which makes it much harder to deny him the nomination.

And if Bloomberg enters the race, all bets are off. The GOP nominee will coast to victory.

Blogger Hostem Populi February 10, 2016 11:23 AM  

@21 I don't think Bernie would be politically competent or astute enough to do harm, unlike the Commodus we have right now. Bernie likes to larp as a socialist, but the question is once he's in power, would he be allowed to continue the larping by folks at Goldman Sachs?

Let's remember who's really in charge. Well, nobody, but Goldman Sachs has veto power.

Blogger Alexander February 10, 2016 11:28 AM  

Yeah, but the problem in '08 was that the party realized it was close enough that the blacks had figured they won, and the leadership didn't dare to anything to suggest otherwise.

Whether the superdelegates will supplicate to Bernie is a different question.

I'm still betting on Biden. I don't see him entering the race officially - if he did that and still lost to Bernie, the card would be played and spent. But if Hilary wins just enough to keep the game in superdelegate territory, then Biden can ride along to the rescue at the convention.

The trick is to convince the Sanders supporters that it was Hillary who was unreasonable, whose delegates wouldn't give Sanders the majority he needed, and the Uncle Joe had nothing to do with it.

In regards to SC, keep in mind it's an OPEN primary, which means you don't have to be registered to vote in either primary. I know of at least one person who refuses to vote for Trump, but will happily vote Bernie to screw with HRC instead.

The obvious question in SC is how do blacks break in regards to Clinton v Sanders? The real question is do they even turn out to vote in the primaries, since I can't see either energizing them enough to bother.

Blogger buzzardist February 10, 2016 12:05 PM  

Clinton may be one of the most unlikeable politicians on the presidential stage in recent history. Sanders beat her soundly by 22 points, and this may well prove a death blow, especially if Clinton loses in South Carolina or, at best, ekes out a narrow win. To recover, she needs at least a double-digit win.

All that said, when the dust in New Hampshire cleared, Clinton still won on delegates. Sanders got 13 of New Hampshire's delegates. Clinton has 15.

Welcome to the lunacy of the Democratic Party. For Sanders to take the nomination, he's going to need lopsided wins like this from start to finish. If Clinton merely fights to a draw in big states and manages to do reasonably well in the South, she has a good chance at staying ahead in the delegate count, even suffering 20-point losses in a dozen or so states.

No. But girls are often very stupid, and try to treat guys as if they were girls. To a girl, she sees another girl who's kinda got a sad story to stir empathy, and that makes her more interesting. She sees evidence that other girls are interested in a guy, and that makes him more interesting. So, she wrongly assumes that men will react to the same cues, when in reality, they have the opposite effect: men hate girls that are nothing but drama, and if they see signs of competition, they tend to next her and look out across the field for someone else.

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/268935-clinton-likely-to-leave-nh-with-same-number-of-delegates

Sanders had won 13 delegates with his 20-point victory on Tuesday and is expected to raise that total to 15 by the time all of the votes are counted.

Two of the state’s 24 delegates are currently unpledged but will likely be awarded to Sanders once the results are finalized.

Clinton won nine delegates in the primary but came into the contest with the support of six superdelegates, who are state party insiders given the freedom to support any candidate they choose.

Superdelegate support is fluid, though, so some of those delegates now backing Clinton could switch to Sanders before the Democratic National Convention in late July.

But as it stands, the superdelegate support gives Clinton a total of 15 New Hampshire delegates.

The Clinton campaign has mounted an aggressive effort to secure about 360 superdelegates across the country, according to the Associated Press. Sanders has a total of eight superdelegates.

Clinton's superdelegate supporters includes Gov. Maggie Hassan, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, and Rep. Annie Kuster.

Trump didn't do so as well as Bernie, or I am guessing he really might have been in the mid-40's. He'd better quit that, they will buy out all the others, and even 40% might not win him the nod.

It is wonderful though. I love to watch msm, establishment on both *cough* political sides, and others just spitting so hard they are beginning to bleed out. Damned lungers just don't realize, even now, that they aren't welcome, and aren't in power anymore.

They also made 'State of Affairs' with another hot blonde to put Hillary in peoples minds.

And in prep for her run up to Presidential nomination in 2008 they made Commander in Chief. Its sort of amazing how much water has been carried for her. Its no wonder liberals prattle on about white privilege.


My big question is which GOP candidate would actually reduce size and scope of government

That ship sailed a long while back. Here and now, its about fighting over the spoils. Do the Clintons, Kasichs, Bushes, Rubios, etc of the world take it and the spoils continue going to the globalists that don't give a @#$#@ about the people living in the region known as the US. Or does one of these hail mary populist candidates work out.

Bernie got 13. Hillary got 9. Bernie leads in hard delegates (those who have to vote for the candidate) 36-32. Hillary leads in soft candidates 362-8, but they apparently can change their minds at any time.

Rather than Sanders attracting young ladies who SOME folks decided were "there for the boys", I propose that the formal announcement
"There seems to be some confusion, The FBI is most assuredly on the case concerning Ms. Clinton (et alia), and their "communications"."

I've really lost a lot of respect for Ben this election. He was spot on with why Romney lost in terms of how the campaign was run, but doesn't seem to understand that conservativism is a lost cause that wasn't worth trying in the first place (kind of like the space shuttle program).

Hillary is not popular in the south, as a whole. How she will preform in Dim circles is another question. I think the answer may surprise you. I'm not willing to make predictions, we'll simply have to wait ans see how things turn out. SC should tell us a lot.

@18
“Her stumbles thus far provide some hope that we are not completely decrepit yet.”

What we are witnessing is the body politic struggling against oncoming death. The US is at the hospice. It's far beyond mere decrepitude.

@19
The Dems will hand the nomination to HRC if they believe they can get away with it, ….)

Dims love byzantine systems as it allows them to cover their tracks much more easily. The entire purpose of the so called “Super Delegates” is to be able to hand the nomination to someone the establishment likes better. Dimocrats are all peachy with democracy until they aren't.

I have to admit, Bernie Sanders is surprising. He has run an impressive campaign - I just hope he's capitalizing on Hillary's lack of charisma and hasn't struck an underlying cultural current toward socialism...

Blogger Thucydides February 10, 2016 5:50 PM  

I'm pretty sure what really scares the hell out of the establishment "D"'s is Sanders likely won in Iowa as well. If despite 90 precincts not reportage and the most statistically unlikely set of coin tosses ever Hillary only just squeaks ahead, then the fabled Dem voter machine could barely keep Hillary above the margin of fraud.

Look carefully at the reporting of upcoming primaries and I'm pretty sure that you will see (or more likely see white spaces where) various scams going on to keep Sanders voters away from the polls while legions of the dead arise to vote Clinton.

American readers should consider registering as "D" and putting all their support during the primary season behind Bernie Sanders. The delightful scene where Hillary has a public meltdown on realizing her own party rejected her will be worth the price of entry, and you can always take hot showers at night to clean off contact with "progressives"during primary season.

Anonymous Kansas Wing Man February 10, 2016 5:56 PM  

As mentioned a couple of times already, it all comes down to "delegates" and "super delegates". Nothing else matters, so watch the miracle come back as the election process swings to the south. Hillary is not going to give up and disappear because she BELIEVES it is her right and destiny to be the Democrat nominee. Watch who she courts for the VP slot. That's the key.
