Biden Wins Big

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T

COLUMBIA, S.C.—Joe Biden had taken blow after blow.

The former vice president had come in fourth place in  the debacle that was the Iowa caucus , and it looked like he might do the same, or worse, in New Hampshire. So before the results putting him in fifth place were announced, he fled, literally, to the state whose support he needed most: South Carolina.

And tonight South Carolinians delivered Biden a decisive victory, with most of the major news networks projecting him as the winner as soon as polls closed. It is his  first presidential-primary win in three runs for president over more than 30 years , one he hopes will prove his continued popularity with core Democratic constituencies and reinvigorate his flailing campaign.

The centrists at MSNBC are over the moon.

The centrists at MSDNC?  Lol!

They pretty openly root for Biden, which makes them centrists.

No they just don't believe Sanders can win in the general election. I don't think quid pro Joe can either but they think he can.

Like Joe said, a party should nominate one of it's own.

I think it was crazy James Carville that said Dems should at least drop the  crazy Utopian BS until they at least won an election...

Joe Biden is the Democratic Frontrunner, again...

Trump has indigestion tonight. 

It is highly unlikely Trump could beat Biden without cheating. 

There are more Democrats than Republicans in America, the Democrats are motivated, and its hard to imagine the majority of independents picking Trump over Biden.

Biden’s plan is to win democrat primaries 

in red states to get the nomination against one who wins the blue and purple state primaries.

Trump will chew Biden up and spit him out during the debates.

2.1.3  seeder  JohnRussell  replied to  WallyW @2.1.2    one month ago

He will call Biden names. 

Trump cannot actually debate. He is a moron.  Hillary Clinton kicked his ass in all three debates in 2016. 

Trump lied and said he won and his flunkies believed him.

He does that at every rally, every week, and probably sees no reason to change a winning strategy.

Hell, he does it every time he speaks to the press.

It's up to the Dems to get out the vote. Period.

SC was a decent start, the caucuses were not.

I doubt it.  This win was baked into the cake so to speak and Bloomberg will eat into Biden’s support on Tuesday.  Biden lives to fight on Super Tuesday and then he’s toast.

No Bernie is the front runner because he has won the most delegates so far. 

  • Bernie Sanders: 48
  • Joe Biden: 34
  • Pete Buttigieg: 26
  • Elizabeth Warren: 8
  • Amy Klobuchar: 7

Trump jokes Biden won't be governing as president: 'He'll be in a home'

Sam Dorman 3 hours ago

President Trump  used part of his  CPAC speech on Saturday to criticize  former Vice President Joe Biden's  mental acuity, joking that he wouldn't be able to handle being president if he won in November.

"How could you be easier to beat than Joe? The guy can't put two sentences together," Trump told a crowd of conservatives.

He added that Biden's "not going to be running the government. He's just going to be sitting in a home someplace and people are going to be running it for him." Trump warned that while Biden was moderate compared to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., the former vice president's team would be made up of "radical left socialists."....

First Class ASS ACT all the way

2.3.3  seeder  JohnRussell  replied to  Donald J. Trump Fan #1 @2.3.1    one month ago

Suffice it to say that trying to make fun of Biden will be Trump's sole campaign strategy.  Anything to try and take the spotlight off his own lies and stupdity.

Sanders still leads in delegates by 7, now, at midnight, 56 - 49.

but actually trails in popular vote for the first 4 states.

All of which means squat.

Maybe by June we will actually have a sense of what matters.

This makes Super Tuesday much more interesting.

Biden is exceeding expectations in vote count and should surpass Sanders in the overall total vote count, although the overall total delegate count will likely favor Sanders by about 5, when the smoke clears. Biden needs the press to regale the populace with the South Carolina victory to blunt Bloomberg's chances on Tuesday.
