Election Night Observations and Feeling the Votes Clinton Finishes First Sanders Places Behind Trump

Election Night Observations and Feeling the Votes: Clinton Finishes First, Sanders Places Behind Trump
Spandan Chakrabarti April 26, 2016


In PA, Hillary Clinton got 80,000 more votes than Trump, Bernie Sanders got 100,000 fewer votes than Donald Trump.

In MD, Bernie Sanders got barely more votes than Trump, while Clinton got more votes than Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders combined.

In DE, Clinton topped Trump's vote total by more than 13,000 votes, while Sanders got about 6,000 fewer votes than Trump.

In every single state that voted tonight, Hillary Clinton got more votes than Donald Trump (including in Rhode Island, which she lost to Sanders). In just two states did Sanders accomplish the same.

In total popular vote, Hillary Clinton will come out of tonight with well over 12 million votes, Trump with about 10 million, and Sanders will finish in third place with 9 million votes.

Math, and voters, seem to have a clear bias towards Hillary Clinton.

The 3 deadliest drugs in America are all totally legal

The 3 deadliest drugs in America are all totally legal
Updated by German Lopez on April 27, 2016, 8:40 a.m. ET @germanrlopez german.lopez@vox.com

As America debates drug policy reforms and marijuana legalization, there's one aspect of the war on drugs that remains perplexingly contradictory: Some of the most dangerous drugs in the US are legal.

Don't believe it? The available data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows tobacco, alcohol, and opioid painkillers were responsible for more direct deaths in one year than any other drug. The chart above compares those drug deaths with the best available data for cocaine, heroin, and marijuana deaths.

Politico: Sanders supporters suffer through stages of grief

Sanders supporters suffer through stages of grief
The New York loss demoralized some of Bernie's most impassioned backers.
By ANNIE KARNI 04/21/16 08:10 PM EDT

Bernie Sanders’ supporters are experiencing the five stages of grief after a devastating 16-point loss in New York Tuesday night, a drubbing that greatly narrowed the Vermont senator’s path moving forward.

After holding out hope, some are beginning to accept the disheartening notion that the Vermont senator is now unlikely to win the party's nomination.

“It is over,” Lee Stonum, an avid Sanders supporter and public defender in Orange County, California, wrote on his Facebook page after the New York results were tallied. “I’m a little annoyed by the tone of the emails I’m now getting from the campaign that refuse to acknowledge this and claim there is still a path to the nomination. There is not.”

Hillary Clinton rallies support in Philadelphia

(Philadelphia) -- Hillary Clinton is bringing her campaign to Philadelphia, just days before Tuesday's primaries in Pennsylvania and Delaware.
Clinton's voice was a little strained after her exhilarating win in New York Tuesday, but she held up through an emotional panel discussion on police brutality and gun violence at a North Philadelphia Church.

Poll: Trump, Clinton have big leads in Pennsylvania

Lancaster) -- The presidential race in Pennsylvania is looking a lot less competitive after the latest Franklin and Marshall College Poll.
The voter survey devoted attention to likely voters in the commonwealth and found the front runners in both parties have pulled even farther ahead.
Hillary Clinton leads Bernie Sanders 58 to 31 percent.

Common Cause chief argues not 'enough has been done to make sure voters know'

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Think you know where your polling place is for next week’s Rhode Island presidential primary? You’d better double check.

The R.I. Board of Elections plans to open only 144 of Rhode Island’s 419 polling places for the April 26 primary, cutting the number by two-thirds compared with a typical November election, which will reduce the cost of administering the vote.

Youth Turnout in New York Wasn't Much Different Than in 2008 (Revolution AWOL again)

Factlet of the Day: Youth Turnout in New York Wasn't Much Different Than in 2008
—By Kevin Drum | Wed Apr. 20, 2016 12:33 PM EDT

The turnout rate among all residents aged 18-29 was up from 9.8 percent to 11.5 percent. That's a nice increase, but as I recall, Obama didn't spend a whole lot of time in New York in 2008. When you take that into account, it's hard to see much evidence here of a massive surge in youth interest caused by the Bernie Sanders campaign.
