Texas closes hundreds of polling sites, making it harder for minorities to vote

The problem with going to the numbers oracles is it doesn’t tell you anything about how the numbers may have been arrived at.
Similar problems were occurring in Greensboro on Saturday.

I remember the nashing of teeth by liberals over voter suppression in the last few election cycles. Not hearing much about it now.

Virginia race was called by the networks before results were given.
Odd that. Shaping perceptions for the western states?
Like calling it for Clinton by announcing she had the majority of delegates before California went to the polls. She hadn’t, they included superdelegates.
SSDP.

Wow, just learned Biden wins Massachusetts and Minnesota. Just last week, Biden was in single digits in Minnesota trailing Klobuchar by 21 and Sanders by 15. On the 29 Feb in Massachusetts it was Sanders 24, Warren 22, Biden 11 in fifth place behind Bloomberg and Buttigieg.

Texas looks like Sanders will prevail. He's up by 4 with 43% of the vote counted. Another surprise is Maine where Biden leads by a single point with 74% of the vote counted.

But listening to the exit poll data it is as I stated before, Sanders is strong with whites and Hispanics, very weak among blacks. It'll be Hispanics that carry Sanders to wins in Texas and California.

Everyone expected Sanders to win 10 states, he'll win 5 or 6 depending on Maine. But Sanders seems will take the big prizes of California and Texas. Although both Texas and Maine are too close to call.

Bed time, until tomorrow.

Texas won’t get Sanders much. A delegate split rilly.
Looks like Sanders has been kneecapped with Joltin Joe overtaking.

The calls for Sanders to drop out should be deafening soon.

Mayor Pete and Amy were both in the race last week. They both were taking votes away from Joe. That's why the DNC forced them out this past weekend. Duh. rolleyes

Sanders looks like he's winning in California, but he's only getting about 27% of the votes. I think that's actually a huge win for Biden, because when you add Buttigieg's 11% to Biden's 17%, you get 28%. Bloomberg has 19% and I think those two will end up endorsing Biden before the convention. So Biden ends up with 47% to Sanders' 27%.

Since Warren went after Sanders I kind of doubt she will endorse Bernie, though some of her delegates may vote for Sanders since she is gone. Bernie's problem is that almost all the other Democrats in the race are just not that into him. I think Biden ends up with 50% at the first vote of the convention.

Here's the thing: Biden is winning in States that he may not win in the General.
