Bernie Sanders has defeated Hillary Clinton in the Indiana Democratic primary election with voting 53% for Sanders vs 47% for Clinton. This was a surprise given that Clinton has led in the polls leading up to the race, including and NBC/WSJ/Marist poll published as late as Sunday.
So despite last Tuesday’s high margin victorty for Clinton, Sanders supporters are not giving up. Sanders has vowed to fight until the Democratic convention in June.
Sanders later tweeted “if you think this race is over, you’re wrong”
Clinton currently has 2201 delegates (including superdelegates) to Sanders’ 1399. Sanders would need 85% of the remaining delegates to win the nomination outright. Clinton needs only 15%. While Bernie is still mathematically in the race, the odds are slim barring a major political meltdown of somekind.
However we are still expecting an indictment to be handed down from the FBI’s investigation of Hillary’s unsecure email server. If Bernie gets close and this happens before the convention, the super delegates could defect and Bernie Sanders could still become the nominee.
Would be great to see THAT trainwreck!
