Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Bernie did very well in caucuses in 2016, also.

He has a very good ground game and is very well organized.

Unlike most of the other candidates, he goes in with a base of support. They turn out for a caucus.

But will they continue to turn out for the primary battles? South Carolina will be a real test for him next week.

There is no doubt but that he looks very strong right now, but we cannot forget that he did not do as well in Iowa as he may have expected. New Hampshire was a neighbor of his and he was expected to do well. Nevada is also a caucus state.

In my opinion, it is premature to think Bernie is going to continue at the rate he is going.

Just my opinion.

4. The big difference is his incredible growth in support among POC and women.

 

As someone at 538 pointed out, Latino voters haven't typically coalesced around a particular candidate. Latino voters, though, might be coalescing around Sanders, and that would be huge.

Anthony Mercado, a 48-year-old maintenance worker, explained Sanders’ appeal to Latinos to The New York Times: “We’re a community of struggle, and this is a man who knows struggle.. .. Latinos have been promised things and then the winds change. But he’s been saying the same things ever since he started.”
