Looking past the raw numbers it is easy to see who was on top at the end of Tuesday night. And no, we don’t do Mayor Pete jokes anymore.
Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and President Donald Trump are the big winners of Super Tuesday. Here’s why:
Sanders- With his win in California and his fired up volunteer base, Bernie Sanders is not going anywhere and still has a very good shot at the nomination. The press spun the opposite last night because they are terrified of a Sanders nomination and then a massive Trump victory.
But the Vermonter is energized, has some races coming up that will break his way, and the Democrat machine/media attempted hit on him last night will only make his hordes madder and more determined. Remember, these are the same kind of people who overthrew the Russian government in 1917.
Biden- A very good night but not quite enough to stop Sanders. That’s the real takeaway from Super Tuesday. His comeback over the last 72 hours has been amazing. Starting with South Carolina and the Clyburn endorsement Biden has been on a roll and his various and wide victories last night only confirm he has Joementum.
But his gaffes, more were on display last night, and the very real possibility that Sanders, AOC, and the rest of the hard left could walk on him if he gets the nomination, is a dark cloud hanging over everything he does. These are the wages of letting the socialists into party prominence in the first place. Now, one way or another, they own you.
Trump- It’s not performing brain surgery to see this one. He kills either one, for different reasons, in the debates. Then he wins 40 plus states against the socialist and about 350-400 Electoral College votes or he wins a bit better against Biden than he did against Hillary. That is, if the economy holds, coronavirus doesn’t hit the nation hard, and we stay at general peace.
If one of those factors goes south, things could get sporty.
