I know it is Sunday and I feel I must deviate from my FYI policy and report on the results of the vote in South Carolina.
All eyes were on Joe Biden for South Carolina was said to be his firewall against the rush of Bernie toward the nomination.
And the media did a great job selling the centrist policies to black voters and he came out on top and there is the stry in the news until Super Tuesday.
And the winners are…..
South Carolina was seen as a must-win state for Joe Biden, and it turned out to be just that. In fact, it wasn’t even close. Major outlets including CNN, ABC, and NBC called the race for the former VP as soon as polls closed at 7pm. Bernie Sanders was in a distant second and Tom Steyer third in early returns. (Steyer later dropped out of the 2020 race.) The big questions will be the final size of Biden’s victory—the AP is already calling it “resounding”—and how the rest of the field shakes out. “The bigger the win, the bigger the bump,” Biden said earlier Saturday in Greenville, per Politico. The “bump” comes days ahead of next week’s Super Tuesday vote. The first returns show why the race was called so fast:
- Joe Biden, 50%
- Bernie Sanders, 18%
- Tom Steyer, 11%
- Pete Buttigieg, 7%
- Elizabeth Warren, 6%
- Amy Klobuchar, 3%
- Tulsi Gabbard, 1%
And Bloomberg was not on the ballot.
Now we will see if the rest of the country is as easy to please as South Carolina.
