Sanders Stuns Clinton in Michigan
by Stephen Lendman
Despite polls showing him around 20 points behind, Sanders defeated Clinton by around a two-point margin, stunning her, slowing but not stopping her near-certain Democrat party nomination. She won Mississippi overwhelmingly.
Trump scored an easy victories over rivals Cruz, Rubio and Kasich in Michigan, Mississippi and Hawaii caucuses, maintaining his so far unstoppable momentum.
Polls show him favored next week in Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, and Ohio. If he sweeps the field, expect Rubio and Kasich to drop out, Cruz given pause about whether to continue. He took Idaho on Tuesday.
Michigan exit polls showed Sanders won a stunning 81% of young Michigan voters and a larger percentage of African Americans (35%) than in other states, except for his home state of Vermont.
America’s farcical political season continues. No matter who prevails in primaries and caucuses, voters always lose.
