South Carolina Primary Open Thread. Update!

I really don't think there is much suspense with this one, Hillary is definitely going to win today.

The only question remaining is by how much.

However let's watch the returns together and see if there are any surprises.

Update:

This might be a predictor of a strong showing for Hillary. 

Update 2: As anticipated even though the polls have just closed MSNBC is already predicting a huge win for Hillary.

And the Hillary campaign just announced the same as I was typing that.

      Yeah, Michelle Bachmann that quit her Lutheran church to run for office. Don't believe me? Look it up.

      That's what I have against every darn last of the GOP. They preach God, yet don't even come close to living it. Horribly so.

      Someone point me to the verse in the Bible where it's okay to do so if you're a politician and forgiven. For the life of me, I can't find it.

      Rubio is a joke, he's like a petulant little child trying to get attention from the adults at the table. He should just save face and quit now. Same with Cruz, it's obvious that barring some catastrophic breakdown of the Trump campaign machine he'll be the nominee; the other two should just walk away, save face, save money.

    15. It has nothing to do with grief.

      It has to do with being denied my choice because other states have made decisions for the DNC before I even get a chance to vote.

      If there's only one name on the ballot by the time June comes around, why should I even bother to vote?

      I think all primaries/caucasus should be held on the same day. Get it all over with at once.

      Have them all in June and have the Election in November. No one is allowed to campaign until 60 days before the primary. That will cut down on the campaigning. Make it part of the campaign reform getting big money out of politics. As long as you're going to clean things up, do it big.

      Mialuppa, I've always felt a single primary day (I would do away with the caucuses) and a shorter campaign season would be a truer vote result. Everyone vote for their candidate, not be forced to wait your turn only to find you have to make another choice.

      Shorter campaign seasons, no outside donations and equal air time would keep things simple and keep these idiots from using campaigns for personal advertising/publicity purposes. No dropping out due to lack of funding or lack of serious intentions.

      We have created such a complicated election process, it doesn't appear to be fair or even accurate anymore.

Les than 50% of the US populace picks the party leaders. Campaign reform is definitely needed to create a system that works far better than the mess we see this year, and have been watching for months already! The senators running are NOT doing the job for which they were elected, but continue to receive their pay w/o any work being done by them at all. It is truly messed up!

      Bernie Sanders has a wider voter appeal than HRC does, and a wider base than just the democratic party. There may be states where the independents choose to vote Republican, because a Trump nomination is a lost general election for sure (IMHO). Surveys show Bernie beats Trump better the Hillary does in general election. Here is a website that summarizes multiple surveys:

  9. As much as I would like to see Bernie win, the odds are not in his favor. Still, he is important to the race. I want someone with bold ideas, someone who isn't afraid to say other countries do some things better than we do and that we can learn a thing or to. That isn't America bashing. That's saying America was founded on the idea of achieving the seemingly impossible. If JFK hadn't been a dreamer, the space program would have ended after an astronaut circled the planet. Hillary is pragmatic and experienced, but pie in the sky is not a bad thing.

    1. RealClearPolitics has Bernie beating both Cruz and Rubio in Florida. So does Hillary. But both losing to Trump in Georgia and Florida.

      If you look at the polls whether it's Bernie or Hillary they win or lose by about the same points against each candidate. So it doesn't really matter who it is.

      I think if BOTH were on the ticket, that would be the deciding factor and would strengthen the chances the Democrats would beat whoever the GOP puts up.

      Of course it would be perfect if Trump ran as an independent and split the Republican vote. Anyone could win against that.

      How Hillary Clinton Changed Her South Carolina Playbook

      Voters say she's connecting with them on a more personal level than before.
      ...Clinton's more personal approach seems to be working.

      “She’s more in the trenches compared to what she was doing before,” said Tatt Enhead, a 43-year-old Methodist preacher, who was listening outside of the church in Florence. “Before, she talked about things that pertained to the community, but you’re seeing her much more in the community than in previous times.”

      Clinton and her supporters have also tried to cast doubt on Sanders’ authenticity as an advocate for racial justice and criminal justice reform. Booker suggested, at a Thursday event at the historically black Benedict College in Columbia, that Sanders had come to such issues too late.

      “Hillary was talking about these issues before it was election time," he said. "She was in the trenches fighting for the things I care about, not just today and not just yesterday."

    Frank Luntz Panic: The Youngs Are So Gosh Darn Liberal!

    Oh noes. The young people, they are way more liberal than Frank Luntz and company think they should be. Voice of America, emphasis added:

    While leading presidential candidate and businessman Donald Trump frequently talks about making America great again, 61 percent of the young people in the survey believe the nation’s best days are still ahead. Just 39 percent felt our “best days are behind us”.

    [W]hen presented with 16 pressing issues facing the country, the younger Americans said they were most worried about the widening gap between the rich and the poor. The high cost of a college education was the second most pressing issue.

    All of this is a cause for alarm, according to Luntz, who writes, “The hostility of young Americans to the underpinnings of the American economy and the American government ought to frighten every business and political leader.”

    Really Frank? Maybe you should have sounded the alarm when conservatives consistently demeaned, insulted, and legislatively repressed gays, blacks, women, and poor people. Maybe declaring the future is so unimportant that we can ban the Environmental Protection Agency makes young people go hmm. Maybe, just maybe, when the average student loan debt crosses the $30,000 mark, people of college age decide that the Republican House, which chose tax cuts for corporations over increases to Pell Grants, is really truly not on their side.

    Maybe the problem isn't with young people, Frank Luntz. Maybe they are forming their political foundation at a time when being liberal is the most self-interested stand they can take. That should scare the crap out of conservatives. Reap what you sow.

    Time to fire Trump

    ...Polls show that 46% of Americans of voting age have a “very unfavourable” opinion of Mr Trump, which suggests his chances of winning a general election are slight. But Mr Trump’s political persona is more flexible than that of any professional politician, which means he can take it in any direction he wants to. And whoever wins the nomination for either party will have a decent chance of becoming America’s next president: the past few elections have been decided by slim margins in a handful of states. When pollsters ask voters to choose in a face-off between Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton, the Democratic front-runner wins by less than three percentage points. Mr Trump would have plenty of time to try to close that gap. An economy that falls back into recession or an indictment for Mrs Clinton might do it for him.

    Trump’s America Arrives — Three Muslims Shot Execution-Style in Indiana

    If you want to envision what Trump’s America would look like, here it is.

    Three young Muslim men living in Indiana were gunned down “execution style” last Friday. Their names were Mohamedtaha Omar, 23, Adam K. Mekki, 20, and Muhammad A. Tairab, 17. They were all American citizens, living in the Midwestern town of Fort Wayne, Indiana.

    Police Chief Garry Hamilton said that each young man was shot “multiple” times.

    They were found in a house that is a well known “hang out spot” for young people. They were not related to each other. They have never been known to be involved in any gang-related or criminal activity.

    So why were three defenseless Muslims killed in a Republican state where Trump is expected to win by a landslide?

    Considering that hate crimes against Muslim Americans tripled last year, with the majority of the crimes being committed after Donald Trump called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,” it’s pretty easy to guess what happened to these young Americans.

      Whatsa matta? are you a frustrated Paulite? You think you're the only one with critical thinking skills? What makes you think we swallow what the media tells without thinking? What makes you think you have a secret source of "truth" and enlightenment that nobody else ha access to? What have YOU done to support the progressive cause? People like you are all about revolution in theory. When it comes to smart, steady incremental progress that will actually get you farther you couldn't be bothered. Then you insult people who don't think like you. Dumbass.

      "Wahhhh, wahhhhh" now run along and light up another joint and calm down. Your Revolutions leader Bernie is just another pasty, old white guy who has done nothing in his whole political career and chose not to work for 17 yrs before that( maybe to avoid child support?0.

      “Since the Republicans took over Congress in 1995, no other lawmaker – not Tom DeLay, not Nancy Pelosi – has passed more roll-call amendments (amendments that actually went to a vote on the floor) than Bernie Sanders. He accomplishes this on the one hand by being relentlessly active, and on the other by using his status as an Independent to form left-right coalitions.” for the asshole who claims Bernie did not do shit while in office....

    hey gryphen, please take a minute to read this article. in light of the fact that in south carolina:

    737,917 people voted republican
    369,207 people voted democrat.

    of course I am in favor of bernie, but this guy makes points I had not even considered before:

      The author is a student. And the article is based purely on supposition - and already obsolete after tonight's blowout.

      Robinson is wrong. There is PLENTY of sexist stuff that will stick to Trump--my Gawd, he's cheated on every wife he's had and Melania was a soft core porn star.

      Seriously, that is just #FeeltheBern propaganda.

    emrysa - I don't need to read it. There are a lot more candidates running on the GOP side now, plus a TV star. That alone brings out more voters.

    If Trump is the nominee, Dems will rally for HRC due to the Supreme Court issue, wanting to take back the Senate, and the endorsement of the President, who will be actively campaigning for HRC. (Bernie not so much, as he has been so critical of the president.)

    Lots of GOP voters will defect if Trump's the nominee, too. Some will go third party or to HRC. (The GOP knows this and it jeopardizes all their down ballot races.)

    Plus Democrats are registering 5 million new voters this year, at a minimum. There is no metric that points to a Bernie win; he's lost 3 of 4 contests so far & he will lose big on Super Tuesday, too, if the PPP polls are correct.

    Where is the Revolution?

      You all act as if Bernie supporters will automatically caucus with Hillary if she gets the nomination. That assumption may prove very incorrect.

      You see, Trump will offer up a sort of "revolution" as well and if Bernie can't run the revolution in our favor then perhaps we should give Trump a try.

      He'd finally destroy the GOP and create chaos amongst the Republican-led Legislature. That can't be a bad thing.

      A Hillary presidency will be boring, the Republican Legislature will stymy her at every turn and play obstructionist hard ball against everything she tries to accomplish, it will be Barack Obama part two, except this time she's a woman instead of a half-black man.

      "...perhaps we should give Trump a try."

      You go ahead and give the Trump a try. Lap up his disgusting rhetoric about building a wall, Mexican rapists, and deporting Muslims. Have fun being in bed with David Duke, the KKK, Sarah Palin, and Chris Christy. I wouldn't have thought it based on your support for a Progressive like Bernie Sanders, but I guess all you care about is a "revolution," no matter what it entails.

      You must be very privileged to sacrifice the state of our economy, world standing, and the rights of women and minorities out of spite.

    One thing about Hilary, she is tuff! She can hold her own. She does not coward. She gets back up. Unlike a republican woman kissing the stinky ass of some male bully punk and begging him for a job? geez pathetic. Republican women seem so desperado for that bully approval. Women who don't stand up for women in need of support and justice is a terrible waste of uterus.
