Democratic debate tonight live in Flint, Michigan: time, schedule and how to watch live online, Sanders vs Clinton
Coming immediately after Super Saturday, the Democratic debate tonight is going to be as intense as the fight seems to be turning out to be. Despite being initially written off, Bernie Sanders is working his way up to the nomination, giving very tough time to Hillary Clinton and her well-oiled campaign machinery.
The Vermont senator was not being given any chance when the primary season began more than a month ago. Nonetheless pretty soon he was able to work with his campaign and pose a tough challenge before the Democratic Party backed Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton has got a great advantage over Sanders. Due to the backing from President Barack Obama, the African American community has backed her solidly. She has got some of the primary wins due merely to African American community backing her en-block.
Despite Bernie Sandersâ€™ excellent performance in Super Saturday polls, Hillary Clinton has steamrolled ahead of the Vermont senator. Democratic voters in three states went to the polls on Saturday in the Democratic nominating contest, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won Kansas and Nebraska while frontrunner Hillary Clinton took Louisiana.
Despite her obvious advantage, Bernie Sanders is hoping that the industrial Midwest and West Coast states come through for him in a big way. Tonight, the candidates return to Flint, Michigan, to make their case in a town they have both been before, which has been struck by tragedy and continues to seethe with frustration.
After his excellent performance Sanders said, â€œThe biggest states are yet to come. New York State, California, Oregon, Washington State. States that we think we can do very well in. Every state is important,” Sanders said at a campaign event in Michigan on Saturday night. “Michigan is important. Weâ€™re going to win some, weâ€™re going to lose some. But, I think basically that we have a path towards victory. Iâ€™m very proud, not only that we seem to be winning these states, but winning them with pretty big numbers.â€
