Update: The Democratic debates are sober and you will not find the Republican type theatrics in their 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.

She went on to add, “If everybody had voted the way he did, I believe the auto industry would have collapsed, taking four million jobs with it”. The debate was held in Flint to highlight the city’s water contamination crisis, and both candidates expressed outrage at Flint’s plight and demanded state and federal money begin to flow immediately to begin relief and rebuilding efforts. Sanders has struggled to slow Clinton’s march to the nomination to face the Republican candidate in the November 8 general election to succeed President Barack Obama. Sanders also questioned the sincerity of Clinton’s conversion to opposing the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a proposed 12-nation Pacific Rim trade deal.

Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton who have just fought valiantly against each other in the Super Saturday primary and caucuses are going to fight another battle. The two are going to be part of the seventh democratic debate that is set to take place in Flint, Michigan.

After giving a very tough fight to the Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders has come out unscathed. His performance seems to be improving with every major fight and Clinton managers are finding it difficult to reverse this trend.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ supporters are enthused by every such win. They believe that it is a sort of miracle that former secretary of state hasn’t been able to win the fight till now, more so, due to the fact that the Democratic establishment has put its weight behind Clinton. It must be kept in mind that Sanders has scored a pair of significant hillary clinton vs bernie sanders 2016caucus victories in the “Super Saturday” primaries, winning by double-digit margins in both Kansas and Nebraska.

Despite Sander’s emphatic win tonight, Clinton has opened up a big delegate lead and Sanders might have a tough time making up the difference. All states in the Democratic race award their delegates proportionally, meaning Clinton can keep piling up delegates even in states she loses. Clinton has at least 1,117 delegates to Sanders’ 477, including superdelegates – members of Congress, governors and party officials who can support the candidate of their choice. It takes 2,383 delegates to win the Democratic nomination.

A report while talking about the performances of the two candidates says, “After Saturday’s results, Clinton is estimated to control 632 pledged delegates, putting her more than 26 percent of the way to the 2,383 required to win the nomination. Sanders lags behind with 441, only 18.5 percent of what he would need to become the party’s presidential nominee. That estimate does not include the so-called “superdelegates,” Democratic bigwigs and elected officials who serve as convention delegates but are free to vote for whoever they want”.

The two will try their best to convince the Democratic supporters and independents that they are the best bet for the party to win against the Republican opponent in the presidential election to be held in November 2016.
