Biden Takes Michigan With Help From Women, Labor Households

Biden Takes Michigan With Help From Women, Labor Households

Biden continues his dominance on Super Tuesday II.

Former Vice President Joe Biden wins Michigan and its 125 pledged delegates.

The Associated Press, Fox News, and CNN called the state for Biden. While Michigan said it may not have official results until Wednesday, Biden has a huge lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Idaho

Polls close at 8/9 pm local time (11 pm ET). 20 pledged delegates.

Michigan

Polls close at 8 pm local time (8/9 pm ET). 125 pledged delegates.

At 9:25 pm ET, The New York Times had Biden up 53% to Sanders’ 40.7%

How did Biden win Michigan?

CNN also reported that groups in Michigan that supported Sanders in 2016 changed to Biden this year:

Around two-thirds or more of Biden’s core voter base, older voters, black voters, and moderates supported him in Michigan, as well as those who oppose a government-funded health program, voters whose top priority is race relations, and voters who prioritize beating President Trump over someone who agrees with them on policy.

Biden also performed much better than expected among groups Bernie Sanders won in 2016. The former vice president and the Vermont senator are currently neck and neck among men without a college degree, a group that Sanders won by 22 points in Michigan over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Sanders also saw a decrease in his lead from 2016 among independent Democratic voters, from winning them by 43 percentage points in 2016 to leading Biden by more than 10 percentage points in 2020.

It looks like Biden is starting to run away with Michigan:

*Previous reporting

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said that the state may not have a winner until Wednesday:

“People should not expect to know the results of Michigan’s elections until well into Wednesday. We hope to get them sooner,” Benson said. “We are working hard to get them sooner, but we want everyone to expect them mid-to-late day on Wednesday”

This is due to a constitutional amendment passed in 2018 that expanded access to voting – including not needing a reason to vote absentee and same-day voter registration.

“This means that across Michigan clerks and their teams will have significantly more work to do today than on previous election days, and that the results of today’s elections may not be known until well into Wednesday,” Benson said in an op-ed published Tuesday morning in USA Today.

Biden led in the latest poll over Sanders by 24 points. But in 2016, failed Democratic presidential Hillary Clinton also led Sanders.

Sanders ended up winning the state. Will it happen again?

Mississippi

Michigan is an open primary. Just tell them which party you want to vote for and that’s the ballot you get.
So I went all in for bernie (PDJT faces no opposition). Hoping he can lose in a brokered convention in Wisconsin and his voters riot and loot.

    I’m sure the people and businesses in the convention center area appreciate your wish.

    Ha ha ha!

    CNN having technical difficulties, even briefly showing a graphic that says Bernie Sanders won Mississippi…

“Women, labor, and households.”
What if you are a female union member, how is household defined?

Racial and ethnic minorities.
We ALL are of a race, and we are ALL of an ethnicity.
The division of/by identity will be the end of the Dem party.
I am white, female, of a German, Irish, English, and French descent, Christian, wife, mother, hetero, suburban, well-educated, and a homeschooler.
How would the Dem party identify me?
I am a Gordian knot of identities.

And the help of DNC Rigging and Fraud??????

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | March 10, 2020 at 10:10 pm

Rut Roh!

DNC just admitted publicly that Ol’ Joe is too Sick to Debate.

(But the stupid DNC is too un-self-aware to know that they confessed it!)

CNN Cancels Debate Audience and Media Attendance For Sanders -v- Biden Debate – Clyburn Says Cancel All Joe Biden Debates Now… …the DNC and CNN have now coordinated to cancel audience attendance for the tenuously scheduled March 15th debate between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.

There is no doubt the DNC is apoplectic at the rapid and very visible decline of their leading candidate for president. …. no-one seriously thinks that Biden is making the decisions any longer…. party control agents …are scripting everything.

Either CNN is going to have a heavily manipulated debate with taped-delays, leaked questions and a framework of total control to protect Joe Biden…. or they’ll cancel it.

How can a union person. It’s for Biden?

They won’t have a job if he would win

Obama polices, what exactly were those?

Where every cop and white person was guilty?

He stirred up racist hatred that still is rampant today.

I never felt uncomfortable around Blacks, went to school with them, daughter played D1 basketball and was a star so many of her friend are black and they and their families became my friends

But now, I am very uncomfortable around Blacks I do not know
I recently saw a black man misconstrue something a woman walking by him in a grocery store said and he wanted to actually hit her but the female with him stopped him.

Dang, I was ready to call 911 and support the woman, there appears no boundary’s anymore. It’s open season on white people

Yeah, I definitely do not want to go back to that crap

Bernie has a limited window of support, Bloomberg flopping so bad was his ultimate downfall. He need a party divided more than just two ways and it didn’t happen for him.

Same day Joe Biden tells a Democrat Union member to eat S and… he also blows off all young Democrat voters.

TheLastRefuge @TheLastRefuge2

Makes sense. The club kneecapped Bernie in Ohio with a prohibition of rallies. He can’t win Florida. Bernie had one card left to play…. The Debate Card. Not exposing Biden 3/15 was worth $$. Bernie is cashing out… https://twitter.com/donwinslow/status/1237546517893799937
Don Winslow New book BROKEN on sale APRIL 7

@donwinslow

I’ve just been informed by someone who would DEFINITELY know that @BernieSanders will announce that he will suspend his campaign on Wednesday or Thursday.

Here in Wa, The machine went for Biden- it was obvious when Durkin declared for Biden (Durkin is Seattle mayor and ambulance chaser who defended Gregoire in stolen Governors election in 2004)

So it is stolen from Bernie here. Rest assured voter enthusiasm on the left will be low in November especially with the crap that Gov Inslee is pulling (forcing Sex ed on first graders and the car tab tax). He is NOT popular, even on the left now.

We did our best to make it close and contested.

“It doesn’t matter who votes, what matters is who counts the votes”!

Democrats would vote for a tree stump if there was a D next to it…well that’s basically what they are doing with Joe…my apologies to tree stumps

I can see the DNC kneecapping Bernie, take him out to make it a sure thing for Biden, then they won’t have a Bernie Bros to contend with in the convention. Biden will end up being out because of health, so the DNC can put in the candidate they want, limiting exposure and opposition research time.

Biden is mentally failing, he is a place holder, as I see it.

He would be a worse choice for the DNC than the RNC gave with McLame.

I don’t think Bernie would have done well in a National election either, but the DNC saw the AOC wing was gaining in power, and they weren’t going to have that lingering issue. Taking out Bernie in fixed elections like these primaries is easier to do, and it diminishes the power of Squat, a two-fer for the DNC.

Biden is breaking down, far quicker than they hoped. Bernie is a crazy Marxist, but Biden is just plain crazy. Neither are acceptable to go nationwide with. Biden dropping out after taking out Bernie was the only way to salvage this mess for the DNC.

I’m wondering about Tulsi Gabbard in all this. Why is she still in the race? No money, no network, no support. It makes no sense to me unless she is part of the Dims plan all along. The DNC had to know months ago that ole Joe was losing it but they had no one else to run. He is the least unpleasant of the group of unpleasant candidates. It will be a miracle if ole Joe can make it physically to November, much less mentally. When they get to the convention and Joe has to fall out who will be left? Gabbard, a woman of color, as progressive as the rest, veteran and well-spoken. Biden gives her all his delegates and it’s all over.

So the voters voted NO on socialism?
