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."
Are you Bernie fans just going to mumble "nevermind", fade away and quietly get in line behind Hillary now?

Sanders does not appeal to minorities, its that simple.
Minorities cannot afford to waste their vote on a self proclaimed socialist

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?
