Biden Now Leads Sanders in Washington State

Mish

As ballots trickle in Biden has taken a lead in Washington State.

You can follow the results at March 10, 2020 Presidential Primary Results.

Washington State was Bernie's last line of defence.

Sanders will get crushed again in 6 days.

March 17 and March 24 Primaries

Table from 538

Estimates are mine.

Delegate Assignment

  • I gave Biden roughly 70% of Florida, Arizona, and Georgia
  • I Gave Biden roughly 60% of Illinois and Ohio

The demographics of Florida and Arizona are strongly against tax increases for "Medicare for All" and "Free Education".

Sanders will get clobbered, assuming he stays in that long.

There is a debate on Sunday. In the debate, I doubt they attack each other. Instead they will attack Trump.

Following the debate or following the Wednesday, March 18 primary slaughter, I expect Sanders will formally endorse Biden and drop out.

Biden ahead in King County? Didn't see that coming.

No. 1-8

A lot of people waiting for Hillary to come out of the bushes.

Friend of mine got a press pass to the Bernie rally at the Tacoma Dome a few weeks ago and the place was full to the rafters with people being turned away. Sanders usually has strong support in the entire Puget Sound area, which makes this map really surprising.

With @Stuki and @Tengen I expected more of a Bernie show in King County, too. If nothing else, one would expect a number of young, deep-cover Republicans in high tech to vote Bernie just to maximize the entertainment loss function.

King County late votes going increasingly to Biden. Just updated the chart. Biden about 1.4% ahead

They found some more mail in ballots? Seems like I've seen this story before. Democrat ballot count deja vu.

doesn't seem like Sanders has both his feet planted in the real world. feels like he's going for a hail mary at the next debate thinking he can score a win so decisive he knocks biden out. at least that's how it feels

Where's the info on Trump to compare with chart of Sander's and Biden? Is their any Republicans in Washington state? Lol.
