Once again, the conventional political wisdom of young people being an unreliable voting bloc holds true. Younger voters, whom overwhelmingly support Sanders as a demographic, simply did not turn out today in the numbers that he needed. The argument that he will inspire and energize the base and turn out massive numbers of young voters and new voters is not supported by tonight’s results.
What is interesting to see is Sanders emerging base of Latino voter support, which helped him carry Nevada and Colorado. Will be interesting to watch TX and CA exit Polls to see how well he performed there. Biden might be wise to pick a Latino running mate – Julian Castro, or Xavier Bacerra, perhaps – to complement his already strong base to form a coalition that will support him in the general.
Really unclear what Warren’s strategy is at this point, she is going to walk away tonight with 0 delegates. Even if you buy into her strategy that she is aiming to be that middle ground candidate in a brokered convention, how do you even make that claim that she can be that candidate when you have 0 delegates???
Imagine spending half a billion dollars, and all you get for it was the American Samoa’s. Correction: he might pick up a few delegates here and there. But damn … what a waste of money. He is in no way, shape, or form going to be the nominee … but I still think he’s got a role to play this election. Money may not be able to buy an election, but it’s damn helpful and cash on hand is still one of the best predictors of political success on the market. Bloomberg spent a lot of money in 2018 supporting down ballot democrats get elected and taking house seats, and if the eventual nominee is wise he will recruit Bloomberg (and his $$$) to protect the house and senate again. He may not yet be finished.
Biden: the Joementum is unreal. I honestly think even his campaign is a bit surprised. Very strong finish for Biden tonight, this race effectively becomes a two person race between Sanders and Biden. Texas being called for Biden is HUGE.
