The exit-poll breakdowns show Sanders having the same landslide performance with New Hampshire Millennials that he did with their Iowa counterparts. Where he improved on Iowa was actually at higher age and income levels: He won 45- to 64-year-olds and only lost seniors to Clinton, and also won every income category up to $200,000. We’ll have a more detailed idea when the raw numbers from individual towns come in, but it basically seems Sanders won an outsize share of the youth-vote segment of Obama’s 2008 coalition, and also did very well among the white blue-collar voter segment where Clinton beat Obama in New Hampshire and elsewhere.

To date, neither has demonstrated the political chops to do so. The odds are better that as this primary contest wears on, so too will the next stages of grief as Democrats learn to accept life under their new standard-bearer: Bernard Sanders. … [Read more...] about Colin Reed: Is Bernie Sanders’ newfound front-runner status pushing establishment Dems to the edge?
In addition, Sanders inspires an intensity in his supporters that few candidates in history can claim. Where Bill Clinton felt voters' pain, Bernie Sanders channels their anger. And that means something in 2020. This level of passion has galvanized a movement reminiscent of other major "change" candidates in history -- Kennedy, Reagan and, whether we want to admit it or not, Trump. One of the central points in Sanders's appeal -- that he is an populist outsider singlehandedly taking on the Washington establishment -- is at the heart of Trump's appeal to his supporters (in addition to his racist nativism, but that's a story for another day). … [Read more...] about Establishment Dems freak out over Bernie Sanders
