Bernie Sanders has won more states than Hillary Clinton, she’s just won larger in more populous or states with more delegates. However things are shaping up where Bernie Sanders could have a very huge comeback and winning streak.
The majority of polls are showing that Bernie Sanders is set for a major winning streak to end the current primary season. Bernie Sanders has fallen a bit behind with a deficit of roughly 300 pledged delegates, but Bernie Sanders has been undeterred and has said that he is in this until the convention.
Bernie Sanders has very good odds in West Virginia where many coal miners feel that Hillary Clinton is not looking out for their best interest. The New York post noted that a win in West Virginia would give Bernie Sanders the momentum needed to continue and win even more states in May and June. Recent polling shows that in West Virginia Sanders is polling at 47% to Clinton’s 44%.
Politico also recently noted that Bernie Sanders is poised for a huge victory in Oregon and though he’s the underdog in Kentucky, they too have roots in the coal industry which Clinton has opposition to.
It’s still a very small chance that he pulls ahead by the convention – it would frankly take a miracle. But the more delegates he gets the bigger his voice and opposition will be at the National Convention when the party sets it’s official platform. It’ll also give super delegates something to think about when they honestly think about who will be most likely to defeat Donald Trump in the fall.
Polls still show Bernie behind in California but there have been record breaking numbers of new voter registrations which would bode well for the Senator from Vermont. It’s still a small chance that he wins by delegates alone, but there’s still the matter of Hillary Clinton’s email servers, and whether an indictment would convince super delegates to back Bernie as the better option to defeat Donald Trump.
Right now it’s already going to be a contested election. Neither candidate will have enough pledged delegates to win. It will come down to super delegates to make the best decision. We just need to give them a reason to choose Bernie over Hillary – it won’t be easy, but it can be done.
