Folks, you should read the post-Super Tuesday TRAILER, which among other things explains how the exodus of rural white voters cost Sanders. In Oklahoma’s “Little Dixie” he got more than 17,000 votes last time, less than 4,000 this week. https://t.co/GapDL254yf

“There’s three things I want to happen,” Angela Watson, a 60-year-old black Democrat from Oklahoma City, told me at a campaign event there this week. “One, beat Trump. Two, beat Trump. And three, beat Trump.”

OKLAHOMA CITY – Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the presidential race while I was flying here to cover a rally he had scheduled for Monday. To salvage the trip, I decided to drive to Tulsa to see Amy Klobuchar … https://t.co/zbNoKJ511X

Biden won the only Midwestern state on Tuesday by quite a lot (9 points in Minnesota). He won Oklahoma, which is kind of Midwestern (and where Bernie won in 2016) by 13 points. He won Tennessee, which is not Midwestern but has similar-ish demographics to Michigan, by 17 points.

Part of what the wins in Oklahoma and Arkansas show is that Biden is stronger with working-class white voters than Clinton was 4 years ago. That could scramble the map a bit. The counter is that Sanders is quite a bit stronger with Hispanic voters than he was 4 years ago.

MSNBC has called Oklahoma for Biden. This is huge, because Sanders won this state in 2016 and was looking to win it again.
Biden has won Tennessee in a blowout. No surprise.
Sanders has won Colorado in a blowout. No surprise.

Biden winning Massachusetts, North Carolina, Alabama, Minessota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia, while reaching viability in California & breaking w/ Bernie in Texas.
That’s the coalition.
That’s the rally.
That’s the unity we’ve been talking about. The people have spoken.

In Oklahoma in 2016, independents backed Sanders by 48 points, leading him to a 10 point victory over Hillary.
In that same state, in 2020, Biden trounces Sanders with independents and moderates, winning by 13 points.
Bernie has lost independents and the middle. Lost ground.
