latest SC primary poll

(cross-posted from GD-Primaries):

Not that it was ever in question, but a story in today's Columbia SC paper is titled " Clinton Support Soars Among Democrats in South Carolina.

Here is a link: http://www.thestate.com/news/politics-government/politics-columns-blogs/the-buzz/article42892149.html

Bottom line: Clinton leads Sanders 71-15. and has 80% support among African American voters in the state. Here is a quote from the story:

“South Carolina is currently Clinton country,” said Winthrop Poll director Scott Huffmon. “While Sanders has drawn large and boisterous crowds – including here at Winthrop – it appears that those crowds might not have significant overlap with likely primary voters."

I don't expect Clinton to win landslides in Iowa and NH, but SC comes next and will set quite a tone for the rest of the primary season.

2. They aren't going to say "uncle" and save themselves from a crushing defeat....

Sanders supporters are in it to the bitter end and they will be send in the $$$$ until well past Hillary's nomination. They will be praying that he'll run as an independent and somehow win the general. And Bernie will string them along for as long as he possibly can.

No mercy rule for the BSers. They actually believe Hillary will need it!

5. Vindictive

Simple Hillary Hate.....the good thing is she has had plenty of experience with that. The Hillary hate in GDP is kinda lame in comparison to the old school stuff

I am starting to think beyond "Sanders' supporters aint Democrats" to this: they don't believe in, nor understand, nor accept, democracy.

Hence the 'we are smarter than everyone else' POV ( Or more commonly: 'HRC voters are stupid' )

Hence the "Bernie or Bust"

It is beyond their comprehension that someone could have a different choice in an election.

4. The money statement

“While Sanders has drawn large and boisterous crowds – including here at Winthrop – it appears that those crowds might not have significant overlap with likely primary voters."


Something Bernie fans will never understand. Crowds are not always voters.

8. What if the majority of these "large boisterous crowds" aren't really Democrats afterall?

“While Sanders has drawn large and boisterous crowds – including here at Winthrop – it appears that those crowds might not have significant overlap with likely primary voters."


Sounds like DU. It is not representative of anything that's happening in the real world.
