"Brutal night for media narrative"

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/columnist/rieder/2016/03/09/rieder-brutal-night-media-narrative/81518604/

<Turns out Clinton's double-digit lead in Michigan was gossamer. Sanders won the state, albeit narrowly, cutting into Clinton's overwhelming lead with black voters while maintaining his dominance among young voters and prevailing among independents.

Postpone the coronation. Sanders isn't going away quite yet. Cue the Rumsfeldian long, hard slog.

The punditocracy seemed convinced that a couple of Sanders moments in the Sunday night debate "Excuse me, I'm talking," his ghetto gaffe would turn off Michiganders. Apparently not so much.

Michigan, of course, doesn't change the overall shape of the contest. The math continues to favor Clinton. Her delegate lead is substantial, and she won big in Mississippi.

But make no mistake: Michigan was an embarrassment for her, and a shock. And next week's battles include some that appear to be on favorable terrain for the Vermont socialist, in states such as Ohio and Missouri.>

5. I find it absolutely "facinating" that the media keeps pushing Hillary's Southern wins.

When are the vast majority of these states going to go Blue?

Answer: Not in this election.

So what if she's winning Southern states? Just shows me she's too conservative for the rest of the country.

9. I think it just says she dominated the African American vote in the deep South

which would go to Bernie in the general election, not that it will matter because the Democrats have no chance in those states anyway.

Bernie winning 71-28 with self described independents in Michigan yesterday is what people should be looking at. Along with the fact that the issues Bernie is hurting Hillary with in industrial states, her support for every trade deal and her coziness with Wall Street, are issues Trump can also hurt her with.
