South Carolina Democratic Primary Results – PolitiSite Election Projection

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.
