50 POINTS!
Okay, Bernie Sandernistas,what happened to the big "Feel The Bern" wave that was cascading over this nation?
Hillary Clinton is kicking Bernie's butt!...Where are you guys?
You were all over ATS...Talking up the Bernmeister...and from the other side, it was looking like you all may have been right and Sanders was going to take over and democratic socialism in the U.S. was an idea whose time had finally come.
...and now Hillary beating him by 50 points in S.C...and set up to run Super Tuesday!
WTH happened to 'Feel The Bern'?
Is Sanders toast?
Are you Bernie fans just going to mumble "nevermind", fade away and quietly get in line behind Hillary now?



Clinton thunders to big win over Sanders in South Carolina



COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Hillary Clinton overwhelmed Bernie Sanders in Saturday's South Carolina primary, drawing staggering support from the state's black Democrats and seizing an increasingly strong position as the presidential race barrels toward Super Tuesday's crucial contests.

Clinton's lopsided win — she led by almost 50 points with about three-fourths of the vote counted — provided an important boost for her campaign and a moment to wipe away bitter memories of her loss to Barack Obama in South Carolina eight years ago. She won the support of nearly 9 in 10 black voters, crucial Democratic backers who abandoned her for Obama in 2008.

During a raucous victory rally, Clinton briefly reveled in her sweeping support from South Carolina voters, hugging backers and posing with them for selfie photos. But then she pivoted quickly to the contests to come.

"Tomorrow this campaign goes national," she said. "We are not taking anything, and we are not taking anyone, for granted."

Anyone seen any raw turnout numbers yet. How many people came out to vote in the Democratic primary? I'm seeing percentages and delegate counts but no turnout numbers.

Sanders does not appeal to minorities, its that simple.

Minorities cannot afford to waste their vote on a self proclaimed socialist

It was her bravery that convinced me.

What do you mean what happened? It was an uphill battle from the start, the DNC wants the Hill dog.

I doubt it, most people that support Bernie despise Hillary.
There is always the write in option, so at the very least I'll just vote for myself again.

As though Hillar(y)ious is any less socialist.

Sanders is a misguided clown but damn, anything is better than Hillary, even Trump.

Bernie Sanders agreed (voted) with Hillary 93% of the time.

I mean exactly what I said: "What happened?"
Bernie Sanders was surging; growing stronger and stronger...and then...pfffft!..it's as if he never existed.

That's because SC voters are "Low Information Voters" who wouldn't even understand and don't give a damn about what Sanders is saying. It's not like you have a high percentage of college graduates who have at least been exposed to Sanders' ideas, like in New Hampshire.

And UNFORTUNATELY, that's how these elections are won. There would be a whole lot of argument if only the sharpest knives in the drawer got to vote, but that's not what is happening. You only approve of "democracy" when you can get the "LIVs" on your side; otherwise, it sucks.

Sanders wasn't expected to take South Carolina. Just because he didn't take South Carolina doesn't mean he's out of the race yet. Sanders has a fight on his hands, but as you know, the media and political spinsters didn't think he would even be a threat. Clinton lost to Bernie by a huge margin in New Hampshire, yet the delegates were stacked against him.

It sure sounds like you must have been feeling the Bern about Sanders getting as many votes that he has up to now. Are you feeling better now that he didn't do so well in South Carolina?


...And what makes you feel Sanders supporters would support Clinton if he loses the nomination?

Whaaaat?

Can't afford it? Bernie marched for civil rights, Hillary supported the school to prison pipeline.

They can't afford to keep blindly supporting the Democratic establishment.

SC has literally 7% less college grads then NH and comparable HS graduation rates. Pretty weak argument if you ask me.

Me? I have as much disdain for Hillary as most Sanders supporters. Speaking for myself...and as a member of the opposition...I was encouraged that Sanders was looking strong against Clinton. I liked him a helluva lot more than Hillary...and was hoping he was up to the task of putting her down. More disappointing than anything else.

My guess is the Bernie voters will continue being NO to Hillary voters, Trump for them come the general election.

South Carolina is low info central. For whatever reason they always buy the snake oil. The South Carolina cons talk tough but always end up voting in lipstick Lindsey graham. Hillsabeast went to Flint once now she's for the blacks. I despise liberal policies but if that's your thing and hillsabeast is your girl you got problems.

Who cares? It's all rigged anyway. The media plays the corporate tune and all the cheerleaders dance around with blank eyes and smiles. Funny, all the cheerleaders I knew were sl*ts and I knew a lot of them ;-) So if you want to prostitute yourself to BS media hype, have at it, if that's what floats your boat. I'll just continue to laugh until the lemmings willfully throw themselves over the precipice.

Cheers - Dave

Hillary has the beauty, brains and balls to be the best President ever. South Carolina should forever be known as the smart state.
