Regardless of the razor-thin percentile, Sanders "won" last night.....an amazing feat for a guy who many thought stood nary a chance against Clinton.

For democrats, the question that lingers is simply this: Is Sanders' success due to his own policies and messages, or is it due to an intense dislike by many progressives toward Clinton?

The primaries in SC and NV will provide some answer.

It is the younger generation coming out in huge crowds.. They are tired of the corruptness and price of their education .

Agreed.....In my generation, us young folks rallied against the war on Nam....We had a substantial stake in that disaster. Hopefully, today's younger generation will also realize that, not only the ridiculous cost of student loans, but the corrupt economic system must be ameliorated if they wish for (at least) the same standard of living of us parents.

They spend so much on college , pay the loans and can not afford to buy a home or have a child. Its not their American dream right now..

The reason Bernie Sanders won't win, is because the demographic he does best with...will not put down the bong, and get up off the couch....and go vote for him.

Add trillions in government financed demand, act shocked when the price rises.

Gotta love liberals and their economic ignorance.

It'll be a first if Sanders gets the 18-25 vote out there to vote

We won't know until we get past New Hampshire and into the Southern primaries and other states with big minority populations people Sanders has not connected with over the years.

Simplistic response.......

It is NOT so much where the money would be generated from to implement the policies that Sanders is advocating (he has actually spoken often on this issue of revenue).....
The REAL HARD part for Sanders is two-fold: Adequately educate nay-sayers (like you) who interpret socialism as communism....AND to convince Congress to finally vote against their OWN PERSONAL INTERESTS....which boil down to getting re-elected and screw those who got them elected in the first place.

March 1st is usually a pretty good time for crappie fishing in Alabama. I imagine a lot of young guys will be on the lakes that day.

True.....But as someone who is almost Sanders' age, I can attest that this guy was fighting for civil rights of minorities, way before such a struggle had become chic.

Yes, Sanders' response, and all the libs, to economic reality is simplistic. And wrong.

Reality disagrees with you.

But it's ok, no one values your opinion anyway.

That may be but Hillary will make the same claim the challenge for Sanders is going to be finding some way distinguish himself from Hillary in positive way to the minority community. This is where I think Bill will be a huge advantage for Hillary don't forget before Obama people used to say Bill was the first black President.
