Will Bernie's stinking corpse be buried on Tuesday, March 10 or will he be resurrected like a Harry Potter Phoenix? At this point pundits are predicting that Bernie will be beaten like a drum in the hands of a sugar-fueled five year old. But if Biden's prospective Michigan voters (they are an older crowd) decide to stay home because of fears of contracting the corona virus, then Bernie the Commie could sneak away with a confounding win.
As I noted in my last commentary on the Primaries, Joe Biden needs to win 52% of the delegates going forward to nail down the nomination and avoid a brokered convention. Keep that number in mind as the results trickle in.
As a reminder, Bernie won a total of 248 delegates from these states in 2016. If he meets or exceeds that number he's a big winner. If he falls short, get out the shovels and prep the political grave. Look at the following results tomorrow morning, the 11th, to know which way the race is headed.
