Looks like it’s time to open one.
It will be interesting to see what spin the media will put on Hillary’s near-certain cleanup on Super Tuesday. On the one hand, it will be tempting to view it as a crushing death blow for the Sanders campaign. On the other hand, the race will then move on to states where Sanders should be much more competitive, so anything short of a complete disaster on Super Tuesday should be survivable for Sanders.
Per 538.com,, the races to watch are Minnesota, Massachusetts and Colorado. Despite the fact that he will be way behind in delegates at the end of the day, sweeping those would suggest Bernie could have a shot at a comeback. Picking off Oklahoma and/or Tennessee would be really good signs.
My prediction: we will be hearing that Super Tuesday is absolutely crucially important during the leadup to it, and not so much the day after, when the fate of the Republic will be seen to hang entirely on the voters of Kansas and Nebraska.
