Crazy Bernie wins.
Wall Street Pete has conceded. Yang, Bennet and Deval Patrick have dropped out. Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden finished fourth and fifth.
BREAKING NEWS: Joe Biden to Leave New Hampshire for South Carolina Before Returns Come In Tonight— Seth Abramson (@SethAbramson) February 11, 2020
(Bad sign for Joe. A very bad sign.)
NEW: @JoeBiden is going to skip his party tonight in New Hampshire, headed to South Carolina. “Look we got a lot of good friends here in New Hampshire but this race ain’t over until you’ve got a significant portion of the electorate that haven’t voted yet,” he told us just now.— Sarah Mucha (@sarahmucha) February 11, 2020
Joe Biden is leaving New Hampshire early and heading to South Carolina. The surprise move comes as he faces the possibility of a fourth- or fifth-place finish in New Hampshire’s primary today.https://t.co/KCx7lBFJAx— The New York Times (@nytimes) February 11, 2020
Joe Biden has already pulled out and retreated to his “firewall” in South Carolina. He will make his last stand there like Jeb Bush in Florida in 2016.
Nevada actually votes next on February 22. Biden is ahead in the polls but Bernie Sanders is widely expected to win there. Nevada Democrats are basically Las Vegas which is dominated by the Culinary Workers Union. I don’t think anyone has ever come in fourth in Iowa and fifth in New Hampshire and rebounded to win a major party nomination.
