2016: Hillary Clinton Just Delivered A Brutal Blow To Bernie Sanders

Bernie’s path forward just got a lot harder.

imageHillary Clinton dominated Tuesday’s Democratic presidential primaries, dealing another significant blow to Bernie Sanders’ chances of securing the party’s nomination.

Ahead of Tuesday’s primaries, Clinton had 1,428 pledged delegates, while Sanders had 1,153. (Winning the nomination requires 2,382 delegates, including unpledged superdelegates.) In order to get on track to overtake Clinton in the delegate race, Sanders needed to win big in Tuesday’s contests. That didn’t happen.

Clinton easily won Pennsylvania and Maryland, as polls had anticipated, and also took Delaware, while Sanders won Rhode Island. Clinton also eked out a win in Connecticut.

Of the 384 pledged delegates up for grabs Tuesday, Clinton will go home with more than half of them.
