Now Hillary Can Chill the Champagne

Her fiercest competitor is losing momentum. The “Democratic Socialist” Bernie Sanders is not getting young sympathizers to the ballot box. And so the path seems clear for the former first lady.

Hillary Clinton shouldn’t open the champagne just yet; rather she should let it chill in the fridge before Bill grabs the bottle. Her triumph over the “Democratic Socialist” Bernie Sanders in the primaries in South Carolina paves the way toward the party’s nomination of the former first lady because on Saturday night, Clinton not only won a clear victory, but she also achieved four important results in the preliminary decisions ending on “Super Tuesday.”

First: The result of 73 percent to 26 percent was clearly predicted by each survey. In the future, Clinton doesn’t need to live with the accusation that the polls are overestimated – rather it seems that the opposite is true.

Second: The African-American community, which turned out with a record-breaking 60 percent of the majority of voters in South Carolina, gave Clinton 87 percent of its vote – not even Barack Obama had those numbers in 2008.

And among 12 states where there are elections on Tuesday, there are Georgia, Alabama and Virginia, three other states with large African-American populations; Louisiana follows four days later and Mississippi, where results are due next week, is the state with the largest African-American population in general.

Hillary’s Integrity Seems Restored

Third: Bernie Sanders magnetically attracts young voters to his campaign appearances, but they don’t go to vote; only one in six voters in South Carolina was under 30.

Fourth: According to exit polls, Clinton was also leading among voters whose most important criterion was the honesty of the candidate. Her image is tarnished in this field after the catastrophic disclosure policy of the then secretary of state with regard to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, and the use of her private email account.

On Tuesday, there will be about 1004 delegates up for grabs prior to the Democratic Party convention. Clinton needs 1236 delegates and currently leads with 544 delegates to 85 delegates for Sanders. Polls say that Clinton is ahead having won in nine states and lost only one, Sanders’ home state of Vermont. Although “democratic socialism” can be found in the United States, it has not made a home.
