Bernie Sanders Surges In California

95905755081ad7d5642ac2f146a6b9bf

Bernie Sanders has surged into a statistical tie with Wall Street’s candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton in the California primary to be held next month.

The survey, conducted by the Public Policy Institute of California, finds Clinton with only a small lead over Sanders, 46 percent to 44 percent, among likely voters in the Democratic primary next month.

This means Bernie will likely win California since Bernie voters turn out in greater numbers than those who will vote for the Wall Street candidate.

The PPIC poll shows the race breaking along familiar lines. Sanders holds a large advantage among younger voters — leading 66 percent to 27 percent among voters under age 45 — while Clinton leads, 59 percent to 28 percent, among voters 45 and older.

If anything is clear, it’s that Hillary Clinton has shot her wad in the Democratic primary campaign. The battle for the South is over and Bernie Sanders has lost, but the battle for the west, the Midwest, the mid-Atlantic states, and New England is shaping up to be a total path to victory for the senator from Vermont.

True, Clinton won the South decisively, but strangely, and what it not typically reported in the press, is that Sanders took Minnesota and Colorado by large margins. He wiped out Clinton, as expected in Vermont. He also trounced her in Oklahoma.

Sanders has leads in Washington, Oregon, and California. He’ll most likely take the rest of New England, and perhaps even the remaining states in the Midwest, and the mid-Atlantic. This battle isn’t over until those rounds are finished.

The national press has done its best to keep us in the dark about Bernie’s chances, and in most cases there’re telling us he has none. Hogwash! The corporate press is in the tank for Hillary. There were plenty of polls broadcast by the corporate news media about how Bernie was going to lose in the South, but nary a word about how he was leading in those Super Tuesday states of Oklahoma, Colorado, Vermont and Minnesota.

That’s to keep us in the dark about Bernie’s real chances, which are getting better every day. Bernie took the Hispanic vote from Hillary in Nevada, and only grows stronger with them. In South Carolina, Hillary took an overwhelming margin of African-American voters over 30 years old, but had a much slimmer thirteen point margin among those under thirty.

Clinton’s campaign relied heavily on the African-American vote in the South, but that group is a much smaller percentage of the Democratic voting base elsewhere, such as on the west coast.

The road ahead is clear for Sanders. His fundraising and number of supporters are increasing, not decreasing. Clinton, meanwhile, grows weaker. True, she might be able to hang on to her large lead, but it’s not God given.

Instead, the South appears to be her high water mark. The path to the Democratic nomination is straight ahead, and it’s heading straight into Bernie Sanders country. Wall Street CEO’s and investors, as well as their Democratic nominee, should be shaking in their boots at the prospect.

Bernieclass-full

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders took questions from the press after speaking to 2,000 people in Dubuque, Iowa. The object of the corporate press is to keep the eyes of the 99 percent off the issues. One blogger asked Senator Sanders if he thought his rumpled hair got as much press time as Hillary Clinton’s hair. Sander’s eloquently explained to the reporter that he was running for president on serious issues, and that the question of hair wasn’t something worth answering. He went on to explain what his campaign was about, and in the video, Bernie explains the issues of the day, which few of the candidates for US president this year want to discuss. While Bernie wants to discuss growing income inequality, Hillary and others want to discuss hair and the dangers of ISIS slipping something into your chips and beer during college football season. It’s a great video and worth a look.
