Feel da Burn he took Michigan TYT called first followed by AP


Bernie Sanders pulled off a shocking upset victory in Michigan on Tuesday, overcoming a double-digit deficit in the polls to win his largest state yet.

Sanders had gambled big on Michigan, pouring resources and time in the expectation that the state would be receptive to his populist economic message and criticism of American free trade agreements.

That bet appears to have paid off in a big way. Sanders's win in Michigan on Tuesday — the Associated Press and MSNBC called the race for Sanders around 11:30 pm — was powered largely by his huge advantage among the white working-class voters and young voters who have been crucial to his coalition, according to initial exit polls.

Sanders's win in Michigan is good for him not just because he will pick up around half of the state's 130 delegates. It also suggests Sanders has a real shot at many of the delegate-rich states — like Ohio, Illinois, and Wisconsin — that lie ahead.

But they still crapping over this big upset even this link.

Nate Silver If Sanders winds up winning in Michigan, it will count as among the greatest polling errors in primary history. fivethirtyeight.com

It's not just the working class or poor & young that like him here, it's the elderly, the better-off, and even disillusioned Republicans, too. A sign of common thread political irritations that people feel Saunders has viable solutions for is when demographics cross & mingle like that in support of the same things.

I think that is a good thing. I think the country needs this opportunity to decide which way to go. No candidate has the perfect solution.

Given the odds now against Sanders winning the nomination , I will repeat what I have said from the very start . Day 1.
Sanders was put up to run to give the illusion of Hillary having an opponent . Better or worse , I do believe that is the truth. Bernie outdoes Clinton in every way in the debates and I enjoy that . And I like some of his ideals and ideas. However , he was doomed from the start due to the DNC . If he had been running against anyone else , he would have been in Clinton's place today.

I think that might be the biggest story of the night. The polls were off by what? 20-25 pts?

Oh I agree I think he has made Hillary a better candidate and the longer he stays in the further left she will have to go in order to wrap up the nomination

When do the winner-take-all-delegates primaries begin? Simply winning a state right now doesn't seem to have much gravity. For example, in Michigan, Bernie "won", but he had to give 52 delegates to Clinton, while he claimed 63, according to this live update -- www.nytimes.com... . Winning a state feels more like winning 1 game in a 7 game basketball playoff series, this early in the primary season.

Nate Silver was giving HRC a 21.3% lead.

Michigan State University was the closest @ 5% for HRC.

I knew there was a lot of energy on Sen Sanders side, time for another donation.

People need to turn off the MSM. The southern states are about done voting. You're about to see the real momentum of the revolution. Watch how much money he makes tonight. There is another debate tomorrow and with each one she gets more shrill. As do the Republicans. He's a snow ball rolling down a snowy mountain. He gains more phone bankers and canvassers and app makers every day. #FEELTHEBERN

Do you understand how the delegate system works? By no doubts this was a big win for Bernie, not because he's all of a sudden the front runner, but because he doesn't have to drop out yet. This was life or death and if he wants to become the favorite he's going to have to start blowing out Hillary by 60-30 percent margins or above for this to even become competitive

I found the answer. "Winner-take-all" starts with the March 15th primaries. Yippie!

It's very possible that Bernie will catch up with Hillary in the next 2 primary cycles. His momentum is growing..which translates to excitement, attention, interviews and MONEY. Hillary continually has to put out fires that she herself started. ("What difference does it make!?", Top Secret stuff on the home P.C., etc., etc..) Bernie supporters are out worker hard. Hillary's supporters seem to be almost paralyzed from wondering when the next bombshell is going to hit.

Right now Hillary has a bigger delegate lead over Sanders than Obama ever had against Hillary in 2008

Just a reality check

Too bad for them that there is hardly a sober Republican in the top tier running, John Kasich the more reasobable of the lot is a speech away from calling it quits, Marco Rubio is less objectionable and while Cruz seemed less cray than Da Donald, most indi voters take one look at Cruz and go ewwwwuuu slimy!!

You guys do realize how many states are left? There are giant states coming up with lots of delegates. Look how wrong the polls are in Michigan. He's going to have the advantage which will only increase over time. New Hampshire and Vermont are not going to be the only blowouts. Hillary never gains support she loses it. His phone bank army is insane. His followers are inventing new tech every day to make reaching more people easier and more convenient. It takes all of a few minutes to go to the site and start phone banking in your sweats while you watch TV. I'm following a great number of his various volunteer groups and their organisation and networking game is becoming ridiculous. His FACEBOOK game is also amazing. Whenever he's speaking live anywhere in the US its being streamed on FB by on average 30,000 people. THAT doesn't include the 5-20,000 people he's addressing at the time.

It's the most exciting and inspiring campaign ever.
