Super Tuesday Democratic Primary Results & Schedule

But first, a short video of various segments from Hillary Clinton's Super Tuesday VICTORY speech with debunking comments, followed by Donald Trump's hilarious remarks about her speech. If Trump becomes the President, he might criminally prosecute her ... so Hillary might be literally "running" for her life! (Run Hillary, Run!!!)

So far, as of Super Tuesday . . .

  • Donald Trump, a Republican Northerner from New York, mostly won the Southern States with White votes.
  • Hillary Clinton, a Democratic Southerner from Arkansas, mostly won the Southern States with Black votes.

If the 2016 Democratic Primary were being held in 1864 . . .

All States are either Yankee or Confederate. Four States that never technically declared secession from the Union — Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, and Missouri — will be listed below as Confederate States. West Virginia became a State as a result of the Civil War, and is also listed as a Confederate State. States that had not become States prior to the Civil War are listed below as a Territory.

Prior Democratic Elections:

  • Iowa (Territory) Hillary Clinton won by a 0.4% margin (after Hillary won 6 out of 6 coin tosses to break 6 ties)
  • New Hampshire (Yankee State) Bernie Sanders won by landslide (with a population that's 93% White)
  • Nevada (Territory) Hillary Clinton won by a 5.5% margin (after Sen. Harry Reid rigged the election to favor Hillary)
  • South Carolina (Confederate State) Hillary Clinton won by a landslide (Over 60% of the Democratic voters are Black)

Super Tuesday Democratic Elections (March 1st) Election Results and Delegate Count

  • Massachusetts (Yankee State) Hillary Clinton won by 50.11% to 48.69% (100% results) — THE ONLY SURPRISE LOSS SO FAR * — It was very close. Why didn't Mass. Senator Elizabeth Warren endorse Bernie?

* Early exit poll data from NBC News showed Sanders leading Clinton among white voters in Massachusetts. Eighty-six percent of voters in that state identified themselves as white. Over 80 percent of voters in the state also said they believe Sanders is honest and trustworthy. Sanders had predicted five wins for himself on Tuesday. In addition to Vermont and Oklahoma, he said he would win Colorado, Minnesota and Massachusetts.

  1. Via POLITICO's Morning Shift: Trump, Joe College and Joe Six Pack (newsletter)

    What's often lost is that Trump is also in most cases winning the white collar vote - using the proxy of voters with college degrees. The victory margins are smaller - typically pluralities rather than the majorities he usually racks up with blue-collars - and that's what most commentators have focused on. But that's hardly the whole story. What is it about college grads in Georgia, Vermont, Massachusetts, Tennessee, and Alabama, not to mention New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada, that made them go for Trump? Trump has even now and then won holders of graduate degrees. One possibility is that the sharp distinction political analysts have always drawn between blue-collar and white-collar is blurrier than it used to be. College graduates still out-earn high school graduates by a substantial margin, but the "college premium" hasn't grown since the 1990s. The broad-based income inequality of the '80s and much of the '90s, when a shortage of skilled labor drove up white-collar wages, gave way to the more cartoonish income inequality of the 21st century, defined by the outsized income share enjoyed by the top one percent. Nowadays you can experience economic resentment all the way up to the 99th percentile. According to Berkeley economist Emmanuel Saez, incomes for the one percent rose 27 percent during the economic recovery that began in 2009, while incomes for the bottom 99 percent rose only about 4 percent. (That's through 2014, the last year for which data are available.) That 99 percent includes most of the country's college graduates. Maybe they're becoming an angry bourgeoisie.

  2. The only way to take down Trump? A united Democratic front (by Maria Cardona)

    I don't agree at all. But I do agree 1,000% with the reader's comment below:

    I'm sorry, but there will be no such unity. The young people, first-time voters, and independents that Bernie has engaged will not be around in November if Hillary is the nominee. The far-left will not unite behind Hillary because they know her policy positions are fleeting. Despite how much Bernie may urge his supporters to vote for Hillary, it will not change the fact that she is the poster-child for our corrupt campaign finance system.

    On the flip side, most reliable Dem voters do not seem to have a problem with Bernie in particular, and are likely to support him in the general election without question. They just prefer Hillary, perhaps because for some reason they believe she has more experience or better electability. The latter is grossly incorrect. Hillary does very poorly with independents, as evident by her polling results in general election match-ups, her performance with independents in the Dem primary, and perhaps most of all, her high unfavorability rating.

    Dem voter turnout was devastatingly low in the 2014 midterms, and is much lower in the 2016 primary so far — lower than it was in the 2008 primary, which doesn't bode well for either Hillary or Bernie, but Bernie has done a better job bringing in new voters. He also performs better with independents than any candidate on either side, he is the only candidate with a positive net favorability, and his anti-establishment message can enable him to win over anti-establishment Republican voters who are currently turning out for Trump.

    The point is, a lot of people just don't trust Hillary Clinton, and will not vote for her. She may be winning the primary so far, but she has not generated any enthusiasm. Her major victories are in conservative southern states, and can easily be attributed to Bernie's failure to reach certain demographics in those states or to generate a large voter turnout, yet those same states are almost certainly going to be won by Republicans in the general election.

    Progressives know she is not progressive. Her propensity for military action, her support of trade agreements, her protection of Wall St., and many other things make it very clear that there is nothing progressive about her. Her campaign funding sources and Super PACs go against the fundamentals of democratic values. I won't even get into the unethical if not illegal behavior she and her family has engaged in over the decades. There will be no unity.

  3. Clinton won Mass by 17,068 votes: 603,784 Hillary to 586,716 Bernie (Maybe all the trash talk from the Boston Globe hurt. They also endorsed Hillary.)

  4. Bill Clinton violate election rules in Mass

    Bill Clinton’s presence inside a polling location in Boston on Super Tuesday raised concerns about whether the former president violated state rules on election campaigning.

    * The Clintons have been known for years to use ever dirty trick in the book -- and they always get away with this $hit!

  5. Bernie Sanders, in a historical upset, just beat Hillary Clinton to win the State of Michigan yesterday.

    There are 4,763 total Democratic delegates
    - 770 super-delegates
    = 3,993 regular delegates (allocated by primaries/caucuses)

    2,383 delegates are needed for the party nomination
    - 770 super-delegates
    1,613 outstanding regular delegates needed for nomination

    Excluding super-delegates, regular delegates allocated so far as of March 90, 2016:

    Clinton 760
    Sanders 546

    Super-delegates can change their mind any time up until the DNC convention in July. If the don't vote with the popular vote, that could spell big trouble for the political insiders (and Bernie could even run as an Independent -- or his supporters would write in his name -- or they would vote Republican -- or they might not vote at all.)

    But the media (especially on the cable news stations) are always totaling the delegate count with the super-delegates to make the election appear as though it's already a done deal for Hillary.
