Bernie Sanders Surges In California

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.

Bernie and Veterans

In the Wisconsin Democratic presidential primary today, Senator Bernie Sanders trounced the Wall Street candidate by ten points. According to Realclearpolitics.com, Bernie has picked up 44 delegates so far, while Hillary has received 26. There are over eighty delegates in Wisconsin’s Democratic Presidential Primary to be divvied up between the two candidates.

Hillary Clinton still leads Bernie by about 230 pledged delegates. Many more are at stake, but the math makes this out to be a tight race. California, New York and Pennsylvania are up. There’s about a thousand delegates to be shared among those states. If Bernie wins 60 percent of the vote in those states, he will just about eliminate Hillary’s current delegate lead. If Sanders wins those states with 55 percent of the vote, he will wipe out half of her lead with a lot states still on the table.

On the heels of caucus conquests in Idaho, Utah, Alaska, Hawaii and Washington, Sanders has shown little patience for those who insist Clinton’s delegate lead is insurmountable. And having hauled in a record $44 million during March, largely from small-dollar donors, the Vermont senator believes he can barnstorm through the remaining states and broadcast his campaign appeals in major media markets for months to come.

“There are many, many states to go,” Sanders said last week while campaigning in New York, where he was born and Clinton served as senator (and where 247 delegates are in play).

The Republican presidential candidates are throwing hay makers at Mitt Romney. That’s because if he wins in South Carolina, which isn’t that likely, he’s in a position to kick some serious booty and win the Republican presidential nomination. That would be a grand win for Wall Street. It’d be perfect! A Wall Street corporate raider would be one step away from being president of the United States.
