It’s official former Vice President Joe Biden will win the South Carolina Democratic primary according to several mainstream media news outlets.
Biden will collect 20 of the 54 delegates at stake in Saturday’s primary. I’m sure he’ll want to claim this victory a win because minority voters but I just don’t see it that way, not do I believe this will help him in the long run of the democratic race for president.
Today is a great day because I’ll tell you what the full comeback starts in South Carolina and then goes here on Tuesday, I mean it. We’re going to win South Carolina, and the next step is North Carolina. We do enough, we’re going to win here as well and then it’s a straight path to the nomination for President of the United States of America.Joe Biden
There are 14 states at stake for Super Tuesday’s primary where I see him coming in third or fourth overall on delegates with Bernie Sanders sweeping through most states. Biden did come in 4th and 5th place in Iowa and New Hampshire and look for that to be the theme coming up.
Biden is establishment and America does not want him regardless of what South Carolina’s primary tells us.
Around half of South Carolina, Democratic voters say the next president should return to Obama-era policies, while around 3 in 10 would prefer they be more liberal, according to early exit poll results. Hopefully, we will never see that.
Sanders takes the lead nationally in delegates with around 45, Biden 29, and Buttigieg with 26 in third place so far.
