New York magazine: "Why a Sanders Upset in the Midwest Tonight Would Matter"

link to Why a Sanders Upset in the Midwest Tonight Would Matter; excerpt:

Since his big upset in Michigan last week, Bernie Sanders has gained enormous ground in Tuesday night’s three Midwest primaries. How much ground, you ask? In Illinois, Sanders went from trailing Hillary Clinton by 42 points in a poll last week, to leading the former secretary of State by two points in one released Sunday. Similarly, the democratic socialist has cut what was once a 30-point Clinton lead in Ohio to a deficit of single digits. And in Missouri, the latest PPP poll, released Monday, shows Sanders one point ahead of the Democratic front-runner.... any Sanders win would be significant because it would give him extra momentum going into a three-week stretch of the primary calendar that looks especially favorable for him. According to FiveThirtyEight’s projections, Sanders is likely to win seven of the eight nominating contests between March 16 and April 9. ... In the 24 hours after Michigan, the Sanders campaign raked in $5 million. Any victory tonight would probably produce a similar cash infusion.... But to the extent that the senator’s candidacy is about shifting America’s political conversation leftward, the more delegates he amasses, the stronger the mandate he and his supporters will have to push the Democratic Party in the direction of social democracy.
