Shock Result on the Democrat Side of Rhode Island’s Primary


Whoa, looks like Rhode Island is no longer Clinton Country. From the Valley Breeze last night.

On the Democrat side, Bernie Sanders soundly defeated Hillary Clinton, taking home 54.7 percent of the vote with all precincts reporting. After being ahead in many polls, Clinton got just 43.1 percent of the vote.

A heartfelt thank you to all Democrat primary voters in Rhode Island who refused to obey the instructions of The Machine and instead, pulled the lever (… er, made the mark) for Bernie Sanders.

Let the speculation, started on Twitter and elsewhere, freely continue about the impact of this yuge, unexpected outcome on the (widely rumored but not confirmed) political plans of various Democrat politicians in Rhode Island, especially those of you-know-who.

    The dichotomy is on one hand, good for Rhode Island Democrats for not voting like lemmings. On the other hand, they voted for another loser.

    Does is really matter when the majority of the Dem delegates are Super delegates and are already committed to Hilary?
    I wonder how many Dems that voted yesterday realize this?
    ‘Party’ politics – what a shame, and I’m sure the R’s are just as, or almost as guilty.
