Latest Polls for 2016 Presidential Election: Bernie Sanders nomination campaign gets another boost in Maine Caucuses

Vermont senator Bernie Sanders got a shot in his arm the same time he was trying to demolish Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner in the Democratic debate last night. While they were debating in Flint, reports came it they he won the Maine caucuses with huge margin.

This is a great boost for Bernie Sanders and his campaign as it establishes him as a formidable opponent of Hillary Clinton, who is the favorite of Democratic establishment.

The most important thing about socialist Sanders’ win is the fact that he won the caucuses with huge margin. Though the difference between their delegate counts is still huge, the three wins in the last two days mean that gap is finally shrinking and not expanding.

hillary clinton vs bernie sanders 2016It is clear that Sanders led Clinton with more than 65 percent of the vote. A victory along those lines would see him take most of the state’s 25 convention delegates at stake. It was an expected win for Sanders, who enjoys strong backing in the northeastern US region and hails from nearby Vermont.

Following the win, in a statement Sanders said, “I thank the people of Maine for their strong support…With another double-digit victory, we have now won by wide margins in states from New England to the Rocky Mountains and from the Midwest to the Great Plains.” The win came as the two Democratic presidential contenders squared off in a debate in Michigan on Sunday, where they clashed angrily over trade, the car industry bailout and Wall Street.

In the meantime during the debate Sanders said Clinton supported “disastrous” trade policies that moved manufacturing jobs out of cities such as Flint and Detroit and shifted them overseas. But Clinton said Sanders’ opposition to the 2009 auto bailout, a crucial issue in a state that is home to the US car industry, would have cost Michigan millions of jobs. The bailout, which Clinton supported, passed Congress and has been credited with helping save the US auto industry.
