Sanders wins Indiana

Sen. Bernie Sanders won Indiana tonight by a decent margin. With 75% of the vote counted, Sanders has nearly a 6% lead over Hillary Clinton, and will win the popular vote tonight.

However, the delegate split will only ensure that Clinton gets that much closer to the nomination. With Ted Cruz dropping out tonight after his drubbing by Donald Trump, all eyes are looking past the conventions and towards the November election.


Why is it that if Hillary has the nomination locked down, Bernie had a great showing in Indiana and won so easily? If Hillary is our nominee, why are people still voting for Bernie?

Because Bernie's message is resonating with voters. Hillary often inspires contempt with her pandering, while Sanders manages to give people hope and confidence that things will get better with him as president.

Feel the Bern!
