Bernie Sanders Wins Nevada Caucus, Sealing Front-Runner Status

Senator Bernie Sanders speaks to supporters ahead of the 2020 Nevada Democratic Caucus.

Las Vegas — Bernie Sanders has won the Nevada caucus, People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) can project with 3% of precincts reporting. The socialist senator from Vermont has now won at least two of the first three contests — likely all three — sealing his status as front-runner for the 2020 Democratic nomination.

He currently leads Joe Biden in county convention delegates (C.C.D.s) and also in the first and final alignment votes.

Biden won the black vote by just 6 points, raising an eyebrow ahead of South Carolina where the former Vice President’s lead is fading quickly.

Pete Buttigieg failed in his first test to compete among diverse demographics. He won just 9% of the Hispanic vote and only 2% of the black vote.
