Clinton Wins Big In South Carolina On Way To ‘Super Tuesday’

Share

By John Whitesides and Amanda Becker

COLUMBIA, S.C. (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton crushed rival Bernie Sanders at the South Carolina primary on Saturday, propelling her into next week’s crucial “Super Tuesday” voting in 11 states on a wave of momentum.

The rout of Sanders solidified Clinton’s status as the strong front-runner to capture the party’s nomination for the Nov. 8 election in her quest to become America’s first woman president.

With nearly half of the votes counted in South Carolina, Clinton led Sanders by a 50-point margin, dramatically reversing her 28-point loss in the state to President Barack Obama during their bitter 2008 primary battle.

The former secretary of state’s victory decisively established her strength among black voters, a crucial Democratic constituency who make up more than half of the party’s primary electorate in South Carolina.

After the win, Clinton appeared to be looking ahead to a general-election matchup with Republican front-runner Donald Trump, the billionaire whose campaign slogan is “Make America Great Again” and has called for building a wall on the border with Mexico.

“Despite what you hear, we don’t need to make America great again, America has never stopped being great,” she told cheering supporters in Columbia after the win. “Instead of building walls, we need to be tearing down barriers.”

The result was Clinton’s third victory in the first four Democratic contests, and raised more questions about whether Sanders, the democratic socialist U.S. senator from Vermont, will be able to expand his support beyond his base of predominantly white liberals.

“Today you sent a message,” Clinton said. “In America, when we stand together, there is no barrier too big to break.”

Sanders admitted defeat early in the night.

“Let me be clear on one thing tonight. This campaign is just beginning. We won a decisive victory in New Hampshire. She won a decisive victory in South Carolina. Now it’s on to Super Tuesday,” Sanders said in a statement.

NATIONAL RACE

The Democratic race now becomes a broader national contest. Eleven states, including six in the South with large minority populations where polls show Clinton with big leads, will vote on Super Tuesday and four more over the next weekend.

“Tomorrow, this campaign goes national,” Clinton said.

Clinton’s camp was hoping a big win in South Carolina, after more narrow victories in Iowa and Nevada and Sanders’ clear win in New Hampshire, will set her up for a big night on Tuesday, when about 875 delegates will be up for grabs, more than one-third of those needed to win the nomination.

Sanders, who has energized the party’s liberal wing and brought young people to the polls with his message of attacking income equality and reining in Wall Street, needs a breakthrough win in a key state in the next few weeks to keep his hopes alive.

“The door is closing fast for Bernie Sanders,” unaligned Democratic strategist Chris Kofinis said. “Movement candidates are about momentum and excitement, and losses sap that momentum. That’s his problem right now.”

Recognizing his steep odds in South Carolina, Sanders had spent most of the past week in states that will vote in March. As the results rolled in on Saturday, he was scheduled to hold a rally in the “Super Tuesday” state of Minnesota.

      Yeah, I can see your point. Sanders, taking in almost $250,000 dollars a year as an old staple, in the House and Senate, now that certainly isn’t the establishment, right?

She doesn’t have the gonads to take on the far Right and to move our nation where it needs to be, further to the left. Guess you enjoy living like an animal as we have done basically since 1980 with a minor respite from 92-2000.

            You’re not getting this. They don’t pay that kind of money to have people tell them what Sanders would have told them.

            After she told them how wonderful they were, they then further gave her the kind of campaign money that she expected to get for telling them that. She’ll then do more for them as President, because she wants more Wall St. love in the future.

            Oh, she won’t do quite as much for them as their first choice would have (a Republican), granted. She’ll show them just enough return love to justify their faith in her as a backup insurance policy.

            No, she’s not bad and not corrupt. She’s still far better than any Republican would be, but unfortunately that bar is set awfully low. That’s why she’s far better.

            She’s too corporate and establishment to represent the kind of change that the country needs, but she’s ok in a lot of other ways.

    I never realized how monolithic the black vote is. It does not appear that they are that interested in really improving their plight. I would have thought maybe Bernie’s economic message and specifically his infrastructure plan putting millions of black inner city youths to work in decent paying construction jobs would have resonated more. I thought his plan for free college tuition making it possible for all lower income Americans get a college degree would change minds. Guess not, maybe he should have promised them reparations to get their votes. Maybe that was his mistake if he wanted their votes. This is really sad day for the true progressives who watch the Afican American political leaders sell out their constituents and their souls to the Establishment. How sad.

      What you and many Bernie followers fail to realize, is that a great deal of what Bernie is promising is either clearly not doable given what is logically going to be the make up of Congress after the 2016 election; and in some cases, is really not as critical as Bernie is making it out to be at this particular moment. As an example is Single Payer insurance. THAT IS NOT AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY.

      What is necessary is keeping the Repubs from trashing Obamacare so that ACA can wring out a lot of problems with our current basic healthcare delivery systems. ACA is already saving lives, and taxpayers and hospitals billions of dollars and is making insurance affordable for millions of Americans. In essence, Bernie is over extending AND PROMISING TOO MUCH (more than we’re in a position to pay for at the moment while we’re running 18T plus in debts). There is plenty of time to move to Single Payer when ACA has had more time to streamline America’s basic healthcare delivery systems (doctors, hospitals, laboratories and more). .

            Hillary has done more for others around the world over the past 30 plus years than any political candidate you have ever voted for:

            From the Daily Kos:

            But that night in the theater two years ago, the other six brave women came up on the stage. Anabella De Leon of Guatemala pointed to Hillary Clinton, who was sitting right in the front row, and said, “I met her and my life changed.” And all weekend long, women from all over the world said the same thing:

            “I’m alive because she came to my country and she talked to our leaders, because I heard her speak, because I read about her.”

            “I’m alive because she went on our local TV and talked about my work, and now they’re afraid to kill me.”

            “I’m alive because she came to my village, put her arm around me, and had a photograph taken together.”

            I’m here today because of that, because of those stores. I didn’t know about this. I never knew any of it. And I think everybody should know. This hidden history Hillary has, the story of her parallel agenda, the shadow diplomacy unheralded, uncelebrated — careful, constant work on behalf of women and girls that she has always conducted alongside everything else a First Lady, a Senator, and now Secretary of State is obliged to do.

Bernie will do more to get guns off the streets while Hillary may say she will while loading up on their money as she has for fossil fuels. I would love to be wrong but all indications are she will continue down the trail of death and destruction as she sides with the neocons and might makes right and pragmatic corruption.

        I am sorry the 20mm people who have no healthcare can’t afford to wait. Obamacare had to be done over time due to the fact that our economy was in the Great Bush Recession. Now our economy is much better and we could do single payer like every other western country on the Earth. I am not interested in can’t. If we can get the people who benefit the most from these programs and people like you to vote in your economic interest then yes we can. Remember what our congress looked like in 2009. We will have the Senate and can start making big gains in the House in this cycle. It is not inconceivable to also have the House back in 2018. Not inconceivable at all if we can get folks like you join the movement now.

          Single payer is also, btw, something that Hillary has been fighting for for decades.

            If Bernie is elected then the political movement of Americans voting in their own best interests has occurred. Bernie will be leading a Senate where Chuck Shumer is the majority leader and Pelosi is again the House majority leader. You don’t play not to lose but rather to win. Yes there will be plenty of GOP voters in red districts that will vote for lower Medicare premiums and higher SS benefits like Bernie is promising. Trump is proving those voters do not really have conservative values at all.

            Just to be clear, there’s no actual chance that the House will go Dem. There’s no possibility that single payer can make it into law in the next four years, and probably not in the next eight.

            Minority voters care more about the Voting Rights Act than an extraordinarily unlikely long-shot at getting single payer, and they are right to do so.

You can’t just willy nilly enact single payer without considering what that would do to the lives of millions of Americans and the impact on our government’s tax revenues from thousands of companies now in the healthcare insurance business going belly up. BERNIE IS NOT THINKING!!

          And see this article:

          Study: Bernie Sanders’ health plan is actually kind of a train wreck for the poor

          Here’s an excerpt:

          .At a press conference in Columbia, S.C. on Wednesday, Sanders told reporters that his single-payer plan — in which the federal government, rather than the private insurance industry, would reimburse doctors and hospitals for treatment — would take “a huge bite” out of poor families’ financial distress. Sanders estimates a middle-class family of four would pay an annual premium of $466 under his plan, with no deductible or co-pays. Less affluent households would pay less than that, or nothing at all.

          But for at least 72 percent of households enrolled in Medicaid — in which someone is working — the costs of Sanders’ plan would exceed the benefits, according to an analysis by Kenneth Thorpe, a public-health expert at Emory University.

            No they aren’t. 26 Red states refused to expand Medicaid in their states leaving those millions without coverage. Hillary does not address that and those people will die when they get sick. She prefers the money from the Health insurers and big pharma over their poverty stricken lives.

            But you referenced 20 million people – there are no where near that number in those 26 states and they’re going without health care on their own accord by continually voting in Republicans against their own best interests.

            Sanders will lose because he has made almost no attempt to appeal to the minority voters that he required in order to win. This lack of support has been obvious for months now, and he never did much about it. He ran a bad campaign and he unsurprisingly lost; he was defeated by his own unwillingness to do anything about the INCREDIBLY OBVIOUS deficiencies of his campaign. It wasn’t Clinton, it wasn’t the reverse racism of African Americans, it wasn’t the ineffectual DNC, and it wasn’t a Secret Conspiracy – it was himself. End of goddam story.

Hillary won the vote in SC because she actually campaigned there while Bernie went to states with a predominately white vote where he thought he had a chance to win which is not the way to win over voters nationally.
            Look…I like Bernie for what he is saying but a lot of what he says is fantasy. If you think he can get even 1% of what he is advocating for then you are in LALA land. Until we win a super majority in both houses of Congress all electing Bernie will do is be wasting his breath.
            One last thought that keeps going in your ear and out the other…Hillary has been supporting down ticket Democrats and has given her time and money to help get them elected while Bernie has done NOTHING for the Democratic Party.

            She’s essentially been out of positions like First Lady and a Senator since it has become clear over the past 4-5 years that the Civil Rights acts of the 60s haven’t apparently been very effective. But if you’re talking about civil rights in general, and especially with respect to women, you will be hard pressed to find someone who has come even close to what Hillary has done.

            Did you read my post below to your fellow idiot bwbw123 which documents all Hillary has done for women around the world?? Huh!!!

            I’m here today because of that, because of those stores. I didn’t know about this. I never knew any of it. And I think everybody should know. This hidden history Hillary has, the story of her parallel agenda, the shadow diplomacy unheralded, uncelebrated — careful, constant work on behalf of women and girls that she has always conducted alongside everything else a First Lady, a Senator, and now Secretary of State is obliged to do.

            What did she do in the Senate for them? I know what she supported in the nineties that hurt them.

            While Bernie was getting arrested during civil rights demonstrations in the early 60’s (before Selma), Hillary was a teenager who was helping to campaign for Barry Goldwater.

            I don’t understand African-Americans on this at all. A roughly 50-50 split in support between the two would be completely understandable, but the 75-100% support for Clinton? I don’t get it. I don’t get that level of support.

            That is because all you know of Black people is what you see on TV, in movies and from the White media. Get a copy of black Enterprise or Ebony magazines. Or read a Jet magazine on line. There is more to Black Americans than your puny mind can comprehend. Most Blacks are not poor, under educated or criminal. Ben Carson is not the only Black doctor. Herman Cain is not the only successful Black businessman. In fact, we do not need you to understand our motivations.
            As to what the Clinton’s have done, they have always been there for Blacks. They don’t just talk the talk, they do the walk. If you look you can find dozens of pictures of the Clinton’s supporting or doing things with Blacks. Not just talking to them, but also listening and supporting their agendas. This has been going on for decades. Also Repug attacks against them remind Black America of their own experiences and struggles. False claims and constant attacks. All Blacks are not poor, criminal nor ignorant. We do not need a “White Massa” but a partner. Subject: Re: Comment on Clinton Wins Big In South Carolina On Way To ‘ Super Tuesday’

            How in the hell am I supposed to find this out from Jet magazine? Yes I’m aware that Blacks represent different socio-economic levels like any other group. That’s why I can easily understand a more equitable split in support between Clinton and Sanders. I just can’t understand a close to 100% support level.

            75% of South Carolina Blacks are in the $200,000.00 per year range, which would make them a Hillary voting group similar to New Hampshire? B.S.

They were tired of the crime running rampant in their communities and at first it worked. We forgot that many police departments use arresting Blacks to finance their departments.

            I don’t recall you giving me any examples and you still can’t answer the question. I know of a few, like Hillary doing some expose on racial segregation in Alabama schools in 1972. I know what you’re thinking: racial segregation in Alabama in 1972? No! Still.

            The point is, I’m not doubting her. Any specific racial legislative effort that she could make to help improve the Black experience in America, I’m sure she would do (the nineties notwithstanding). The thing is, so would Bernie. Blacks just don’t even seem to know him, which is amazing.

            I hear you on Ferguson. Absolutely disgusting. Targeting Black citizens to help finance local governance. Who’s going to jail for that? If nobody, why not? That’s one of the reasons why I don’t believe it when I hear that it’s just a few corrupt cops. It’s more systemic than that. Too much has been revealed now about things like this.

            In some of those southern states last night, 91% of Democratic Black citizens voted for Hillary. 91%, and there’s a lot of Black poverty in those southern states. Like Appalachia for white poverty. A number like that is crazy. They don’t think that Bernie’s policies would benefit them? They think that he would abandon them later? They apparently don’t know the guy, or understand the differences between the two candidates. How is that still possible?

            They seem to not be taking into account a lot of Black leaders who’re now supporting Bernie, but then again he hasn’t exactly been there for them locally in recent times, agreed.

            Why should they listen to him? Pro-Sanders Black intellectuals don’t take Clinton’s support as a vote of confidence in her. They’ve seen this drama play out before: Democratic candidates woo black voters right up until they win the nomination. During the general election and the presidency, black voters are ignored — at best.

        Neither does willful ignorance. Focus on the debates and not the promises politicians make. Neither Hilary nor Bernie can do much without help in Congress. All this noise against either is what the Repugs want. Instead of pushing Dem hatred, fight for more Dems in the Congress who will support a Dem president and their program.

The fact that she takes millions from the health insurance companies and big pharma explains her position against Medicare for all as well. You are being played.

        Has it occurred to you that she’s made that much money giving speeches because lots of organizations respect her extensive knowledge of governmental and foreign relations issues? They’re not paying her to give speeches in order to solicit her biased support idiot!! They’re paying her because she has extensive knowledge and a wide range of experience on issues they want to hear about.

        If what these organizations were looking for was for her to support their agendas, they wouldn’t be paying her to give speeches – they’d be doing it like the Koches and Adelsons and other wealthy right-wingers do to the SCOTUS judges and slipping her money under the table!!

Bernie has proven that a candidate can run a successful campaign without Superpac money, lobbiest monies, corporate donations and without the help of the Establishment. He may not win but he is changing things for the future. There will be day when fascists like Clinton will be unelectable. Where taking money from special interest groups will be politically fatal. Got to love what Tulsi Gabbards did today when she told Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to screw themselves. Gotta love it. Enjoy your plutocracy where all the wealth and income go to the top. I am sure the Clintons and the DNC appreciate you voting against your own economic interests. Good luck.

However I would recommend you not be so gloatful and vindictive at this point. You will need all of Bernie’s supporters in the national election to win. There are millions of Democrats that truly love Bernie and even more independents that are not included in the primaries that support Bernie.

From the ACA to SS, MEDICARE, MEDICAID, Affirmative Action, gay rights, all the way to the fight for equality, the world we live in will be turned upside down if a Republican is elected President, and we will have nobody to blame but ourselves for being so partisan.

    Hillary did not win Iowa. That state was a virtual tie.

    The door is not “closing fast” for Bernie Sanders. South Carolina was not a friendly state, and this was expected. But South Carolina is also a small, very red state and ultimately not that important in the larger context. It is important to remember that none of the big states have voted yet. Those of us in states with late primaries deserve a real choice, so it is critical for Bernie to stay in the race.
