February 29, 2020 Politisite Aggregator 1

Below are live South Carolina Democratic Party Primary Election Results for 2020.  Polls close at 7:00 pm and election results should be posted within a half hour of polls being closed.

Note: Crossover voting is allowed in South Carolina and some groups have been posting on social media to disrupt a Joe Biden win by voting for Bernie Sanders. We think Operation Chaos voting will not be significant enough to change the outcome of the South Carolina Democratic Primary.

While Bernie Sanders was closing in on Joe Biden in the South Carolina Primary,  Joe Biden is expected to pull out a win when all the votes are counted on February 29, 2020.

It wasn’t because a great debate performance during the 10th Democratic Debate in Charleston, South Carolina on Tuesday and it wasn’t because of a major South Carolina state newspaper endorsement., it all came down to the single most important endorsement by an individual.  That individual is House Majority Whip Congressman Jim Clyburn.  Frankly, South Carolina Democrat politics is the among the few states that have people of color making up the majority of voters. These voters look to Clyburn for guidance and (more often then not) follow his lead by pulling the lever for the candidate he endorses.
