Bernie Sanders Wins Democrats Abroad Primary In Landslide

21 March 2016

Democrats living abroad had their primary today. They overwhelmingly chose Bernie Sanders. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

Bernie Sanders on Monday heralded his convincing win over Hillary Clinton in the Democrats Abroad global primary as proof that his “political revolution” was now “resonating all over the world”.

With turnout up 50% from 2008, 34,570 US citizens living in 38 countries voted by internet, mail, fax or in person. Sanders took 69% of the vote to earn nine delegates to the national convention in August; Hillary Clinton took 31% and four.

Sanders has won nine US states so far, but in a count including the party’s sometimes controversial independent superdelegates, he trails Clinton by 1,614 delegates to 856.”*

Politico has a new article about a dozen or so Democratic Senators trying to subtly tell Bernie Sanders to drop out of the race. Why don’t they just say it? It’s all politics. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Democratic lawmakers on both sides of the Capitol are turning their fire on Bernie Sanders as he marches toward a big win in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), a supporter of Hillary Clinton, warned that Sanders could drag down Democratic candidates running for the House and Senate if he wins the nomination.

“I believe it could have real serious down-ballot consequences,” Connolly told The Hill…

“Bernie has been here for 25 years. Lots and lots of people in Congress know Bernie well. We like Bernie, we admire Bernie. But of the almost 200 members of Congress who are Democrats, I think two of them have endorsed Bernie Sanders,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), a Clinton booster.”

  1. . Yesterday afternoon, we received the final results from another Democratic primary contest:

    Democrats Abroad Results – March 21, 2016
    Sanders: 69% (nine delegates)
    Clinton: 31% (four delegates)

    Here’s why this result is important: we netted more delegates from the Democrats Abroad voting than Hillary Clinton netted with her narrow victories in Illinois, Massachusetts, and Missouri combined.

    This is the result we needed. Now we wait to hear from Arizona, Idaho, and Utah later tonight, where we should do well. But we also have to focus on what’s next, and that is the CRITICAL caucus in Washington on Saturday.

    Your $3 contribution today will ensure we have what we need to win Washington State’s caucus this Saturday. We need a good margin there, and your contribution could make the difference.

    We’ve said all along that March 15th would be the high-water mark for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Now the map shifts in our favor, and we’re going to begin clawing back delegates in state after state until we capture the lead on June 7th. But that will only happen if we continue to stand together.

    In solidarity,
