Biden dominates Sanders in Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi

By Dan McCaleb | The Center Square

Former Vice President Joe Biden won primaries Tuesday in Michigan, Missouri and Mississippi just a week after he dominated elections on Super Tuesday, when he won 10 of 14 states.

Voters in Idaho, Washington and North Dakota also voted Tuesday to add to the awarded delegate count.

In Michigan, Biden held a 53 to 40 percent lead with 66 percent of precincts reporting. National media outlets projected the former vice president to win the key Midwestern swing state, where Sanders edged Hillary Clinton in 2016.

With results from 18 states and a U.S. territory already in, Biden has won 670 awarded delegates prior to Tuesday’s elections. Sanders has won 574 delegates.

All told, 352 delegates are in play Tuesday of the 1,991 necessary to secure the party nomination at the Democratic Convention in Milwaukee, Wis., in July.

Prior to Tuesday, Biden won primaries in Alabama, Arkansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Sanders won his home state of Vermont, as well as California, Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire and Utah.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg all dropped out earlier this month. All but Warren have endorsed Biden.

  1. This is the end of the Socialist/Communist sympathizer Bernie.
    All his jumping up and down over the years, made him a

    multi-millionaire with a
    tax-free Foundation and
    three houses and
    a $70,000 Audi to “support the German worker”;

    He screws the US worker, but loves illegals, because they vote DEMOCRAT.

    He is ALL AMERICAN and in the HEARTLAND of the USA they do NOT love his kind.

    He is much loved in the USSR, Venezuela, Cuba, etc.
    Bernie works night and day to have Socialism in the US, but cannot get enough people to vote for him, because “nobody likes him”, according to much liked Hillary.

  2. I bet Socialist Sanders, is feeling ” the Burn. ” after these results,…………. great !!

  3. Bad sign for the leftist commie brigade… the low info’s are going tor the
    dementia candidate over the socialist commie.. burnee lost it paling with
    his marxist and isloboob terrorist friends..So now how long before joe pops
    his cork in a mental breakdown complete with bleeding eyeballs…the
    msm sure don’t seem to care.
