Senator Bernie Sanders has defeated Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin by a margin of about 56% to 44%. Sanders will receive about 45 delegates vs Hillary’s 31.
Out of the last 7 primaries, Sanders has won 6. These include mostly smaller states, Idaho, Utah, Alaska, Washington, Hawaii and of course, Wisconsin. Hillary won only Arizona.
However, despite the recent seeming setbacks, we stand by our prediction that Hillary will win the nomination outright. At this stage Hillary only needs about 32% of the remaining delegates (Sanders needs almost 70%). Since all of the Democratic primaries are proportional, this should be an easy lift. Mrs. Clinton currently leads in the polls in heavy states like New York, California and Pennsylvania.
Clinton’s only vulnerability is the possibility her superdelegates might defect. If this happened, the Democrats could have a brokered convention since neither would have reached the required number of delegates. But this is not likely unless a major meltdown of some kind occurs. Arranging or instigating such a change is outside the ability of Bernie Sanders
Mrs. Clinton is still under investigation by the FBI. If an indictment should be handed down, all bets are off!
