Bernie Makes The Impossible Happen
http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/elec...emocratic/

All polling indicated that he would lose Michigan by 10-20%, yet he won by 2% against Hillary last night. The news say this is the biggest polling error in the history of presidential elections.

Unfortunately for him, he also lost in Mississippi by about 65% yesterday which widened the delegate gap between him and Clinton even further.

RE: Bernie Makes The Impossible Happen
I think his chances are the same of a snowball in hell.
The political climate in the US is such (to my understanding) that he is simply not electable on a nationwide scale. In a Europen country maybe, or certainly, but in the US he is been viewed as a "commie" or "socialist" by too big parts of the population, which seems to be the only things worse than being labeled "atheist".

Although i think someone like him would be probably necessary to adress the things that are so fundamentally wrong in this society.

Just my 2c as an observing foreigner. Wish them guys good luck, they will need it (considering the candidates availiable Facepalm )

I didn't know that it was such a big polling error as far as history was concerned. I was surprised to hear how close it was two days ago. The first time I heard it was that close, I figured it was just one "favorable" poll, and I cited aggregated polls putting him 20 points back. Then, sure enough, that seemed to be what everyone was reporting.

This certainly makes all the effort my wife and I (mostly my wife Wink) put into phone banking and canvassing. Now that the primary is done in Michigan, there won't be any need for door knocking, but I imagine we'll be phone banking for Ohio, soon.

Yeah, it's still an uphill battle and this was a net loss. Still, there are two bright spots for his campaign:
  • Getting the win in Michigan gets him free media coverage both in terms of the huge (yuge) swing and also that they won't be saying "Clinton won both Michigan and Mississippi".
  • Clinton does much better in a lot of the southern states, and many of those primaries are over.
And really, even if he doesn't win the nomination, I think it's still good that someone is out complaining about the problems (money and campaign finance reform) that other politicians refuse to talk about. He's showing that you can run an extremely competitive race without taking money from a super PAC. Also, the longer the race goes on, the more Democrats get free air time talking about their policies.

We get it Vosur. You're a right wing German. This is nothing new you know.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
