The following from CNN:
“In 2008, 55% of voters were black, but now African-Americans made up 61% of voters. In 2008, 78% of black voters went with Obama and 19% backed Clinton, according to exit polls at the time. But this time, 84% of black voters went for Clinton and 16% went for Sanders.”
It is difficult to top the irony of the Ft. Sumpter primary. I take special interest in the Illinois primary, I live there, I think Bernie has to rethink the demographics of this race. Somehow he has to appeal to the working classes of all races, that is the ticket to success. He went to Chicago State University (South Side of Chicago), had a pretty good crowd, not overflowing, now it is time to hit East St. Lous, Peoria, some of the mid size towns hit by deindustrialization, i.e., Decatur, maybe a speech at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. He has to go where potential votes are, maybe try to get some disillusioned Trump people, etc. Illinois should be an easy win for Bernie, unfortunately, it isn’t.
