Bernie Beating Hillary in Blue & Purple States with Delegates & Votes

"An analysis of Hillary Clinton's vote totals and delegate counts to date do not bode well for her in November if she is the Democratic Party nominee. And she knows it.

That's why Bernie Sanders' surprising (to them) win in Michigan has the Clinton camp worried. It points to a trend that the Clinton camp does not want anyone to notice.

At this point in time (March 11), Bernie Sanders has won eight states outright to Hillary Clinton's nine. They have basically tied in four others:

Iowa caucus, Clinton by roughly 355 votes.

Nevada caucus, Clinton by roughly 8,000 votes.

Massachusetts, Clinton by 17,064 votes out of 1.2 million cast, 1.4% difference.

Michigan, Sanders by 19,437 out of 1.2 million cast, 1.64% difference.

(Hillary also won American Samoa, where she got 162 out of the 237 total votes tabulated.)

Hillary Clinton has seen her largest delegate gains to date in the Deep South (South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas). She touts her support from the Black community in those states as a sign of her "electability."

The problem is that Hillary Clinton knows that her path to the White House does not include winning any of those Deep South states in November. These eight states, all of them, will go Red (Republican) in November, regardless of which Democrat and which Republican are on the ballot.

While the Democrats in those states may support her, the demographics show the Republican vote will overwhelm any candidate the Democrats put forward. Check the record: All those enthusiastic black voters in those eight states could not pull out a single win for Barack Obama in either of his races in 2008 or 2012."

Some people stay in denial over Hillary's electability.


Hillary Clinton and the Ex-Im Bank Financing of the World’s Largest Coal Plants in South Africa

"In 2009, the South African government announced a major energy plan to construct two new coal-fired power stations. The project, which aimed at building the world’s largest coal plants, came under intense criticism by various governments and climate activists, who saw it as a disastrous blow to the fight against climate change.

Yet newly released emails from presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State, reveal that she acted in support of a World Bank loan for the construction of one of the plants.

Furthermore, a DeSmog investigation finds that the other plant, which received funding from a US government agency led by a close Clinton ally and fundraiser, is being built by an American construction firm tied to another associate of the former Secretary.

These actions seem contrary to Clinton’s tough campaign talk on curbing CO2 emissions and investing in renewable energy. They also raise new questions about Clinton’s ties to the revolving door lobbying culture that connects major corporations to top officials in Washington, DC."

Hillary: The best PR can’t sell a terrible product

"If Democratic officials get their way — at this writing, that seems more likely than not — Hillary Clinton will win her party’s nomination partly due to the same reason as Donald Trump seems poised to win his: massive ignorance on the part of the voters.

The result will be a huge disaster.

At a Democratic debate on Feb. 4, Clinton was asked about the three speeches for which Goldman Sachs infamously paid her $675,000 as recently as 2013. (Would she release the text of those talks, so the public could judge whether she had promised special favors to the corrupt Wall Street firm? “I’ll look into it,” she promised.)"

Washington Post :Four reasons Hillary Clinton lost the Democratic debate

"By throwing the kitchen sink at Bernie, Hillary sounded nervous and even somewhat desperate – certainly more so than she needs to be."

It was a really bad debate for Hillary



"But critics aren’t buying the about face Hillary Clinton seems to have done on fracking. Bruce Bullock, director of the Maguire Energy Institute at Southern Methodist University, said her stance against fracking is seen as empty rhetoric.
“Secretary Clinton’s answer is essentially campaign hyperbole, and meant to appease her environmental constituency,” he told the Dallas Morning News (via Fortune). “In reality, it has little substance to it.” "

And the best part.

"Clinton is also having a difficult time backing up her tough stance on fracking. This week, just days after taking what seemed to be a hard-line stance against fracking, she attended a $575-a-plate fundraising lunch from an investment firm that invests heavily in fracking."

The Reason Bernie Sanders Defied The Polls In Michigan

"FLINT, MICHIGAN — Bernie Sanders upset Hillary Clinton in the Michigan presidential primary on Tuesday, securing a larger share of voters of color than he has ever before and significantly winning young voters, who came out in record numbers.
Though the polls predicted she would easily win Michigan, Clinton secured just 65 percent of Michigan’s African American vote, a number that’s significantly lower than her usual results — including Mississippi, which also held a primary on Tuesday, and where she secured almost nine in ten black voters. The only state where Sanders won a larger share of African American voters was his home state of Vermont, which is only 1.2 percent black. Michigan, meanwhile, is more than 14 percent black.
Frederick Malone, who was wearing and selling t-shirts reading “Black Men for Bernie” at a press event in Flint on Monday, told ThinkProgress that the more black voters hear about Sanders’ policies, the more they support him.
“Bernie’s been for the black people for a long time,” he said. When asked why Clinton has been winning Southern states with large black populations, Malone faulted it on Sanders’ speaking skills.
“Hillary, she expresses herself a lot better than Bernie,” he said. “Bernie, he can’t communicate all of the things he has done. He’s been at this a long time. He marched with Martin Luther King.”


Rollingstone: WTF Happened to Hillary Clinton in Michigan, Explained

"Overcoming a consensus 21-point deficit in the polls, and odds against winning pegged at 99:1, Bernie Sanders stormed to victory over Hillary Clinton in the Michigan primary Tuesday night. Sanders' stunning upset win has altered the momentum of the Democratic race. Will it be enough to change the delegate math?

Last night was huge!
