45 to 1

Story tonight on NPR relates that Clinton has a 45 to 1 edge over Sanders in endorsements by elected officials - local, state and federal level. Don't ask me to prove the info is correct; I am assuming NPR would not declare that as a fact if it weren't so.
I would love to see the spin of how this equates to Bernie "will" or "can" win. I probably wouldn't be able to follow the circuitous logic since most of the more rabid folks in that camp are on my Ignore list.
45 to 1 is a staggering figure.

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.

Take South Carolina off the board

Yes, they do

A month ago I was an undecided voter in
the important early primary state of South Carolina. Bernie Sanders has long been my favorite member of Congress, but I am
a big fan of the Clintons and had concerns about Sanders ability to win the general
election.
The absurd, divisive attacks I have seen here on Hillary Clinton have made me really wonder about the mindset of his supporters. As of now, I expect to
vote for Clinton, along with about 80% of black voters and 60% of all voters in this state come February.
Reread the original post and you might see what I'm talking about.
