What Does South Carolina Mean for Joe Biden? Not Much

What Does South Carolina Mean for Joe Biden? Not Much

While Biden overwhelmed Sanders and the others in South Carolina, he still does not have much of a path to the nomination.

The former vice-president and Democratic presidential contender will likely get massacred on Super Tuesday, particularly in California where he currently polls in third place at 11% —behind Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

Biden will also probably lose Texas, Virginia, Massachusetts, Minnesota — and most of the other states.

Only in North Carolina is he ahead in the latest polls.

After Super Tuesday, Sanders will have an overwhelming lead in the delegate count.

Democrats who are trying to stop him are clinging to the hope that Buttigieg, Warren, Bloomberg, Steyer, and Klobuchar drop out of the race, and that their supporters flock to Joe Biden, giving him a shot at getting a majority at the convention.

Fat chance.

In the national Fox News poll of Feb. 23, Democratic primary voters were asked who their second choice would be. And guess which candidate won the most second choice votes?

Bernie Sanders who won 19% of the second choice votes compared to Biden’s 17%.

Certainly Warren’s vote will go to Bernie. Perhaps Biden could get most of Buttigieg’s and Klobuchar’s small vote totals. But Bloomberg’s voters are largely gullible TV watchers who know little or nothing about politics, and likely care less. He has no organization; if he dropped out, his voters would likely just stay home and watch more television.

And who says Buttigieg et al. will drop out.

Covetous of their 15 minutes of fame, they’ll probably keep at it.

And, even if they do drop out and endorse Biden, it will likely be a mathematical impossibility that they could swing the race to Biden.

So it sure looks like Trump v. Sanders in the fall.
