Bernie with 67.7% of the vote in Kansas

Wowzers

I'm tired of race being used as a wedge issue in politics.

Yes, racial issues are extremely important and need to be addressed, but there are people out there determined to drive a wedge between other groups of people simply for political gain. It's despicable, selfish, and in the end is counterproductive.

End rant.

Super Tuesday was a good night for both Candidates

Hillary won 7 states including most of the south and a squeaker in MA. Bernie won 4 states including Oklahoma and MN where he was behind in polling only a week ago. Hillary gathered a lot of delegates while Bernie maintains his viability at a crucial time when most thought yesterday would essentially be the end of his campaign. Now the election moves out of the south where the map turns more to Bernie's favor and he'll have a chance to pick up some momentum going into Michigan. This race is far from over.

Here come the poll numbers again.

Remember in the fall, when Hillary's supporters had all but given up on discussing the issues and all they had were poll numbers? Well, it's back. Clinton is under fire for her past, and current, actions and all they have to fall back on are poll numbers that are quickly turning to Bernie's favor. This will be an interesting few weeks.

And *this* is why Bernie has Cornel West out on the campaign trail

Ipsos/Reuters National Dem Poll: For the first time, Bernie leads Hillary 47.3 to 43.9

This is the same metric they use for their occasional poll releases. Likely Dem Voters still shows Bernie behind. Take these numbers with a grain of salt though. This pollster is notoriously variable, but one can definitely take note of the trends. Despite Nevada and the narrative of impending doom for the Sanders Campaign, Bernie is picking up momentum.

This election is not over on Super Tuesday

Yeah, Hillary will likely come out ahead in delegates. Most of the Super Tuesday states are in the Southeast where she holds significant leads over Bernie. However after that the playing field arguably turns to Bernie's favor. Barring a media shit storm and people becoming discouraged, Bernie stands to do very very well after March 1st. This thing is far from over.

Cross Post from GDP: What issues, specifically, would end racism in the US?

Hi all, first post in the AA group. Let's just get this out of the way. I'm a white male from New England who supports Bernie. That said, there's obviously a disconnect between Bernie's platform and the AA community so I thought I'd ask all of you a couple questions in hopes of making some inroads. Here's what I posted in GDP:

Many people here say that Bernie only focuses on economic inequality but not racial issues. Okay, what policies would end racism in this country? What could Bernie add to his platform that would address racial problems?


I ask this question in all seriousness without any malice.

What issues, specifically, would end racism in the US?

Killer Mike just dropped a Truth Bomb in Atlanta.

When the video of his intro is posted on YouTube I'll put it here. Let's just say it was one for the ages.
