Biden resurrects to 60 delegate lead over Sanders on Super Tuesday as late tallies await
In a remarkable reversal of fortune, former VP Joe Biden has come back from almost dead to take a small lead after the Democrat Party Super Tuesday election.
He currently has 60 delegates more than Senator Bernie Sanders with several hundred delegates to be finalized among the candidates on the West Coast.
According to the NY Times delegate counter, Biden popped into the lead taking many of the eastern states while Sander’s fortunes rose in a mano a mano race in Texas with a near delegate split and victories in Colorado and Utah with the biggest prize yet to be tallied: California.
1991 delegates are needed to win the Democratic Party nomination.
There are several hundred outstanding delegates in California to be totaled. Currently, Sanders is pulling away from Biden, with a 51 delegate margin as several hundred are outstanding with about 76% of the vote tallied.
The Democrat establishment came together and crushed Bernie Sanders, AGAIN! Even the fact that Elizabeth Warren stayed in the race was devastating to Bernie and allowed Sleepy Joe to unthinkably win Massachusetts. It was a perfect storm, with many good states remaining for Joe!
