Clinton no longer leading 2:1 in SC primary

I posted a week ago about Clinton opening better than a 2:1 lead in South Carolina, which is the 3rd primary after Iowa and NH. New CNN poll has changed those numbers:

Among Democrats, Hillary Clinton has a 45-point lead over Bernie Sanders, 65% to 21%. Martin O'Malley, the third candidate in the race, has 3%.

Link: http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/09/politics/donald-trump-south-carolina-20-points/index.html

Now a 3:1 lead, with Clinton having locked up virtually every major endorsement in the state (Minority Whip Congressman Jim Clyburn, all three living Democratic ex-Governors, large majority of legislators, etc.)

Ready for everyone to weigh in on why this is irrelevant since some City Council member in Smallville just endorsed Sanders.

2. The only polls that Bernie folks admit to

caring about are ones saying he can beat the repubs by a few more points than Hillary can.

Other wise polls don't matter because Hillary is buying and paying for them.

8. Wow! A staggering fact is 80% of AA voters in SC support HRC

80 percent!! That's pretty much all of the AA population of SC.
So here she's gone from a 2:1 lead to a 3:1 lead.

The SCarolina A A community will lead the way, setting the standard for AA voters in other States, and they will follow. They are a very loyal & unified group

Great OP. Thanks

As soon as the deficit is cut to only 40 points one of the Bernie supporters will put out a thread entitled - Bernie Surging in SC!

12. But But ... you forget the 1.2 million millenials

 

and 2.7 million votes from SC that allowed Bernie to win all 50 states.

All those people are going to magically appear at the polls and Bernie will win by a landslide.

Please compare Hillary's top 10 donors to Mitt Romney's top 10. Then, for shits and giggles compare them both to Mr. Sanders.
