Bernie Sanders Goes 1-2-3 in Early States –

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) can claim to have won the popular vote in each of the very first 3 early states in the Democratic Party governmental main with his triumph in Nevada on Saturday night.

It is the very first time a candidate for any major celebration’s election has won the popular vote in all three of the very first states.

FOR THE FIRST TIME:

A (Dem or GOP) candidate (Sanders) has won the popular vote in all 3 early states: Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada.

Sanders won the popular vote in Iowa, though previous South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg declared victory in state delegate equivalents. Sanders later on won the New Hampshire main outright, albeit by a much smaller margin than in2016
And Sanders has now won a state with a significant Latino population. Sanders has actually been closing the space there in recent surveys, and there is a possibility he might win there.

Opposition to Sanders within the Democratic Party stays strong.

But it would be needed to deny the nomination to a candidate who had swept the very first three contests– and, rather perhaps, the 4th.

Anti-Sanders Democrats have just one hope: a second tally, if Sanders stops working to win a bulk of delegates. There, “superdelegates” would come into play– and the Sanders campaign does not appear to have a plan

Not yet, anyhow.
