Bernie Sanders: “What tonight means is that the Bernie Sanders campaign, the people’s revolution that we are talking about, is strong in every part of the country”
Bernie Sanders surprisingly defeated Hillary Clinton in the presidential race in Michigan last Tuesday. Sanders recorded 49.9% – 48.2% .Prior to this election, Clinton had about 673 to 477 pledged pollsters which was a clear evidence to win the Democratic nomination.
This however draws attention to a theory known as the “Bradley effect- a theory that makes it possible for white pollsters to lie concerning the support for a black candidate, but instead vote for the opponent during the secret ballot.
Michigan from day one saw Clinton with an upper hand over Sanders, but these thoughts changed completely after the primaries. However, most people think Clinton lost due to comments she gave during debate by CNN on Sunday evening before the polls. Clinton through her emails answered questions on abortion of which pollster weren’t pleased.
Sanders in a congratulatory address said, “I am grateful to the people of Michigan for defying the pundits and pollsters and giving us their support,” “This is a critically important night. We
came from 30 points down in Michigan and we’re seeing the same kind of come-from-behind momentum all across America.”
He also stated boldly that, Michigan is not his only path to his success, but the result is a proved of the support of the people towards him to become their future leader.
But Clinton, upon defeats from the nomination still holds strong to delegations which she is needed to secure her nomination ahead of the upcoming elections.
