Super Tuesday

After Super Tuesday rush, will there be a Biden hangover?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The party's rush to Biden on Super Tuesday was so swift it almost invites rethinking in the days to come. In short: Will there be a Biden hangover? What is at stake is the resolution of a deep divide in the Democratic Party between Sanders' young, revolution-minded constituency, now strengthened by significant numbers of Hispanic voters, and Biden's older, more cautious electorate. The outcome might be decided less on the substance of issues than on the temperament and stamina of two men who, were either elected, would turn 80 shortly after entering the White House. Many Democrats, especially those who were proud of their candidates' diversity, will wonder how they got here.

Not So Super Tuesday: Bernie Shows He’s No Trump

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

On Tuesday night, beaming over his victories, Joe Biden spoke in relentlessly moralistic terms, casting the race against Trump as a “battle for the soul of this country.” The Trump campaign shouldn’t let him get away with such posturing. He is a braggart and a wheeler-dealer pol who heads up a family of unscrupulous lobbyists. He talks about himself as “blue-collar Joe,” but he shed that skin long ago. Like his son and brothers, he has shamelessly cashed in on his political connections. Where exactly does his moral authority come from? Not his religion, which he compromised away a long time ago. The sooner the Trump campaign exposes the emptiness of his claims, the better.

Key GOP Contests MSM Ignored On Super Tuesday

While Democrats battled over who is best to sell their radical agenda of amnesty for illegal aliens, gun confiscation, higher taxes, abortion up to and past the moment of birth and job-killing climate change regulations, the media largely ignored Super Tuesday’s important Republican primaries, including the GOP's Alabama Senate race and key congressional races in Texas and California.

The Establishment Takes Aim At Bernie As An Historic Day Looms

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

For the Democratic establishment, the stakes could not be higher and thus that establishment, after Biden's landslide in South Carolina, is not disguising its interests or demands: Sanders must be denied the nomination, and Biden is the only one who can accomplish that. Biden might have won South Carolina without the endorsement of veteran African American Congressman Jim Clyburn. But it was Clyburn's blessing that gave Biden his landslide. And if Biden wins Alabama and other states today, the major factors of his victory will be his South Carolina landslide and his support from African Americans. Should Biden win the nomination, still a long shot, he will be in deep political debt.

Biden Wins SC, Bernie Wins Cash And Polls Heading To Super Tuesday

Joe Biden goes into the Democrats' Super Tuesday primaries almost broke and with no time to turn his South Carolina win into campaign cash. Sleepy Joe may have picked up a little bounce from his South Carolina win, and Michael Bloomberg may have dumped half-a-billion dollars on TV, but it is the Far Left "woke" progressives that are driving the Democratic primaries in most states, and they are solidly in Bernie Sanders’ corner.

Biden southern win could set up regional showdown with Bernie

The factors that led to Biden's win here all apply to other states with similar mixes of black and white voters. Looking ahead to Super Tuesday, Biden appears strong in North Carolina and has a chance to finish well in Alabama, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and possibly even Texas. If, as expected, Sanders wins California and other non-Southern states, the results of this primary, combined with Super Tuesday, could set up a regional showdown for the nomination, with a deeply divided party struggling to settle on a nominee. Biden, the South Carolina winner, will likely face, in Sanders, a candidate who won the most votes in the first three contests and then in the biggest prize of all, California.

Presidential Horse Race 2016: When does opposing Donald Trump become a moral issue?

Q for #NeverTrump: Are you really willing to effectively extinguish the lives of millions of unborn Americans because your pride prevents you from backing a man like Donald Trump? Plus, Mitt Romney says his family wanted him to run again, but he couldn’t put them through it; Some members of BushWorld’s embrace of Hillary suggests the end of #NeverTrump is near, and, Eric Trump says his dad is really just all about America.
