Nebe, BOY the polls were wrong in Michigan

Nebe, there were 15 polls for the Democratic primary in Michigan, and all 15 had Hilary ahead by double digits. And Bernie wins. That was an important lesson for me, the polls are not infallible, even when all of them say the same thing.

I cannot believe he upset her in Michigan. A good night for him. It may not last long, but he had a good night.

Yup. However, no surprise here. Just look back to the election days before Obama was elected the first time. Hillary won more states early on, went on to win Super Tuesday and then she crumbled as Obama gained momentum.
The thing Obama had on his side however was the black vote. It should be very interesting to see how this unfolds.

Hillary still won the delegates in Michigan. I don't think it's going to be that interesting buddy

She got just under 1/2. Sanders won but not by much. That it was a surprise could also just mean it was an outlier and not a sign of a trend.

Well said It was a shock. She got caught lying (shocker, I know) about Sanders voting against the car makers getting the bailout (she said he didn't care about them, when in fact he voted against it because he wanted to give them more), and that blew up in her face. I guess she just mis-remembered.

You can chalk it up to a poorly worded statement but to call him an idiot over it is pretty ignorant.

Agreed. I don't think it's possible for him to recover from yesterday. He will make a good Vice President though.

Don't think so. As VP he may not rally the younger voters like he has in the primary and he'd pull Clinton to the left which wouldn't help in the general election.

He doesn't help her electorally at all. She's not going to put a socialist on her ticket. Do you have any guesses? Maybe a popular, liberal governor?

Sherrod Brown is my current guess.

I think you are, in fact, wrong. Pretty sure he dominated Super Tuesday, then she staged something of comeback between then and the convention, but fell short.

I know the Democratic Party is colorblind 😂 But let's face it he is too white and probably is the wrong gender. I'm afraid the party of rainbows and unicorns is over .
