*BREAKING NBC* Sanders Wins in West Virginia Democratic Primary [View all]

Source: NBC

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has won the West Virginia Democratic primary, NBC News projects, a victory that will add yet more fuel to his argument that he should remain in the race despite badly trailing front runner Hillary Clinton in the overall delegate count. The win comes one week after Sanders prevailed in Indiana's Democratic primary and two weeks after Clinton dominated a series of contests in the northeastern United States.

Democrats also voted on Tuesday in a presidential "beauty contest" in Nebraska, although the delegates from that state were all previously assigned during a March 5 caucus. In that contest, Sanders won 15 pledged delegates, compared to 10 for Clinton. <snip>

Clinton's faltering is a marked difference from her performance in the state eight years ago, when she beat then-candidate Barack Obama by more than 40 percent.

first you say they 'hate Obama', now you attribute it to her 'policies' tomm2thumbs May 2016 #73
pwnmom said "Obama's policies" but to make your point you chose to misquote her. Why? TeamPooka May 2016 #97
her policies are HER policies tomm2thumbs May 2016 #104
