The DNC is in a panic over the fact that Bernie Sanders is leading the pack on Super Tuesday’s primaries, including the biggie, California. Super Tuesday states — including Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia — will all vote on the same day.
If Bernie sweeps most of those states, he would either become unstoppable, or he will go into a brokered convention with a sizable lead.
That is the Democrats’ greatest fear. Having a socialist lead them into the 2020 elections will not only cost them the White House, but it could also influence the elections for the Senate and the House.
I look for them to try to pull a rabbit out of their hat, such as allowing Super Delegates to vote in the first round at the Democratic National Convention.

The poll, released on the same day as the New Hampshire primary, shows Sanders not only leading the Democrat primary field on a national scale but experiencing a seven-point advantage over his closest competitor in Super Tuesday states — including Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia.
The Vermont socialist has 27 percent support in the March 3 Super Tuesday states, followed by Joe Biden (D), Michael Bloomberg (D), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Pete Buttigieg (D) with 20 percent, 16 percent, 11 percent, and ten percent, respectively.
The survey shows Andrew Yang (D), who dropped out of the race on Tuesday, with five percent support, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Tom Steyer (D) with three percent support each.
The results are based on a survey of 5,028 voters in those states taken February 4-9, 2020. The margin of error is +/- 1 percent support.
