Peak Bernie?

So far Bernie Sanders has tied Clinton in Iowa (surprise) and won New Hampshire by a 3-2 margin (not a surprise). Nevada is up next, and the last poll taken in December gave Clinton a formidable lead. Following that is South Carolina, and recent polls there have Clinton “beating Bernie Sanders soundly,” as NPR cheerily puts it.

Are we at peak Bernie?

I believe so. Sanders fires up the grassroots and college students but primaries and caucuses  are insider affairs. Clinton allies are well-placed throughout the states and barring an unforeseen miracle, Sanders will lose Nevada and South Carolina by significant margins even without Clinton’s lock on superdelegates. Queue the “comeback kid” storylines fed by her operatives to the sycophant media and Hillary will be back on track to her coronation.

I haven’t added a “Bernie Sanders” category to this journal yet and given the cunning and fortitude of the Clintons I doubt I will have reason to.

    The Clintons are like vampires. I won’t believe her political career is dead until she’s behind bars.

    I suspect that Bernie is on his way out the door.

    The Clintons have more lives than a cat although like Scott, I’m hoping Hillary gets her comeuppance in prison.
