Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

Is it over? Is Joe the one? Is Bernie out of it? There is no question that the rank and file Democrats resoundingly rejected Socialism and the Bernie Bros in yesterday’s primaries. But was it because they see Joe as the leader of the Party who is going to lead the Democrats to victory in November? Or is it a combination of disenchantment with the socialist agenda and the very youthful base of Sanders’ support being too lazy to get out of the house and vote? We can debate this, but it is a matter of opinion, one that will ultimately be resolved in November.   

History didn’t repeat itself in Michigan for Bernie Sanders. And because of that, the populist U.S. senator from Vermont had an extremely disappointing evening on “Super Tuesday II” — and now faces daunting delegate math that leaves him slipping swiftly out of reach of the Democratic presidential nomination. Just four years ago, it was in Michigan where Sanders pulled off a historic upset over eventual nominee Hillary Clinton. At the time, the victory kept his White House bid alive. Fast forward four years later and Sanders – down in the public opinion polls by double digits once again in the Great Lake State – was convincingly defeated by former Vice President Joe Biden. Four years ago Sanders nearly topped Clinton in Missouri. This time around he lost the state by a nearly 2-to-1 margin to Biden. And the former vice president trounced Sanders in Mississippi and won in Idaho as well. Sanders – who won a landslide victory in the 2016 Washington state caucuses – was neck and neck with Biden in the state’s 2020 primary with just over two-thirds of the vote counted. Biden initially had the slight edge in Idaho – with more than three-quarters of the vote counted — and was eventually declared the winner. Sanders was up in North Dakota’s caucuses, where only 14 delegates were up for grabs. Undisputed front-runner Biden’s blockbuster performance boosted his lead in the all-important race for presidential convention delegates and further cemented his status as the undisputed front-runner for the Democratic nomination. And Biden’s strong performance presented Sanders with a difficult choice to make on whether to continue his White House bid. In a remarkable and uncharacteristic move, Sanders opted not to deliver a primary night address, passing on the opportunity to speak to a national audience.
