Take South Carolina off the board

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. Considering the primary is three months away nothing should be taken "off the board"

If HRC's supporters get complacent and many don't turn out to vote then Bernie could do better than expected.

3. It's an open primary state. We could see a fair amount of crossover votes for Sanders. nt

4. Republican crossover votes for Sanders????

Do you know anything about South Carolina? With a hotly contested race in their own party the chance of any SC Republicans voting in the Dem primary, much less voting for Sanders, is about as likely as Green Party candidate winning.

10. Sanders needs to get his message and his record out to the people of South Carolina.

 

I also wish they could learn more about Clinton. The more people know, the better.

11. Yep. South Carolina voters made their minds up early.

 

Like you said, not that there was ever any doubt.

Other candidates will need to campaign there a little to be respectful, but everybody knows SC will be Hillary by a landslide.

12. A notoriously religious and conservative electorate, in 08 SC was where I became disgusted with

 

both the leading candidates for their respective pandering and trading in divisive rhetoric. It was ex-gay hate preachers and racist dog whistles all over the place.
