Momentum - Time Of Death: April, 19 2016

Momentum has always been a nebulous thing when it comes to politics, but it is now officially dead. Bernie and his campaign can talk all they want about how they have momentum on their side, but we have seen time and time again that no such thing exists.

Hillary crushed on Super Tuesday, then lost Michigan.

Bernie staged a 'monumental upset' in Michigan, then lost all five states following that.

Hillary won those five, then lost the caucus round.

Bernie won the caucus round, and added Wisconsin, only to lose big in NY.

The moral of the story is that momentum is a pittance, and demographics are far more important.

1. Yeah, also those national polls are clearly wrong.

She won NY by 16 and had huge wins in the South plus leads in CA. How that produces a national tie is beyond me.

3. Lots of death on April 19th...better look at history...my mother died on April 19th too...51 yrs ago

OK and so many other things happened on April 19th. It is a bad day in history. But as far as Bernie is concerned it was the day he was cheated out of a win. Hillary is dishonest and has a unfavorable rating to match it.
