After his second place in Iowa and his victory in New Hampshire, the Vermont senator is already the man to beat.
Bernie Sanders has won the Nevada primary and cthus consolidates its position as a probable Democratic candidate for the White House. After his second place in Iowa and his victory in New Hampshire, the Vermont senator is already the man to beat. His triumph seems even stronger after winning among the registered Democrats of the main union of casino workers in Las Vegas, after he openly criticized him for his defense of a universal and public health system.
From Texas, where he held a rally with his eyes on the super Tuesday, Sanders was resounding. He had squeezed his options better than anyone. He also demonstrated the overwhelming power of an organization that works like a clock. Both when it comes to donations and their ability to seduce a much more diverse electorate than in the previous two states, the machinery of the candidate who fought and lost with Hillary Clinton in 2016 advances formidable.
Among his rivals highlights the good performance of Joe Biden, urgently in need of a breath of air on the eve of South Carolina, which will mark his fate. The former vice president needed to shake off the shadow of the failure he drags. Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend and a big surprise in this cycle of primaries, would have also achieved a remarkable result. But even more striking has been his speech, where he has warned of the danger of polarization inherent in a candidacy of a Sanders who does not hesitate to call himself a socialist. The big favorite is also the beloved rival of the electoral advisers of Donald Trump, convinced that a radical of the left will never be able to attract the decisive moderate vote. There is the circumstance, however, that Nevada Sanders would have won votes for the first time among moderate Democrats. And this is his great hope, given how unlikely it seems a priori a candidate determined to denounce inequalities while the US. UU. It maintains an almost virtuous economic cycle since the early years of Obama. A triumphant streak that has been prolonged, increasingly robust, during Trump’s first term. On the other hand, it seems increasingly evident that in the socialist wing of the Democratic Party there will be no place for two candidates: despite her formidable performance during the last debate, Senator Elizabeth Warren has more and more difficult to unseat Sanders. On the centrist side, however, everything can change, with Biden still alive and Buttigieg and Klobuchar settled as aspirants. Not forgetting a Bloomberg who is still in time to restore the disaster of his first debate.
