Indications are, based on recent public opinion polls, that former Vice President Joe Biden is likely to win the South Carolina Presidential Primary this Saturday, by a substantial margin.
The endorsement by African American Congressman and House Majority Whip James Clyburn of Biden is a real boost to Biden’s candidacy.
But the question is whether the upcoming vote is the last Hurrah for Biden, as he lacks adequate financial resources, and is not showing up well in Super Tuesday primaries next Tuesday, when 14 states, including California, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Colorado as the most significant states, conduct their elections. Senator Bernie Sanders is favored to win most of those primaries.
Winning South Carolina might help, but it is only three days to those Super Tuesday primaries, so if Biden does poorly on Tuesday, March 3, it likely will be the end of his dream of becoming the 46th President of the United States!
I was not available to watch the most recent 2020 Democratic presidential primaries debate which was held in South Carolina this past Tuesday [February 25, 2020]. I still have not watched it. From what I have come across, including clips of particular moments, it was terrible. That â€œCBS Newsâ€ did little in the way of moderating. Also interesting is this 15-minute video from â€œThe Jimmy Dore Showâ€ reporting on access to tickets for the people who were in the audience.
Republicans are planning to boost Bernie in the Virginia primary.
I’ve also heard that they may be planning to do that in South Carolina as well.
They obviously see him as the most beatable candidate of the bunch.
