What has come out so far on Nebraska is very early #'s and not offficial (it seems like its based off what some have posted on social media). I could be wrong, but don't think any official #'s will be released until the polls across the state close (the Caucus times vary by Caucus site).

The early #'s if accurate appear to favor Sanders (which was generally expected though Nebraska along with Kansas are wildcards since very little if anything has been released), but its important to note it is very early, just a handful of precincts and not official.

1. You are correct that Clinton has performed best on deep red states and the overall lean of the early Primary states tilts Republicans. However, the AA vote in some of these southern states whwile certainly more than 50%, isn't exactly near 90% either.

2. There are a few more of those states coming up (Louisiana, Mississippi)

3. Sanders could very well fair better in some of the remaining states than he has to this point, as many of them tend to be more liberal (especially among Democratic voters). However, its complete naive to think he is in the Driver's seat at at this point. clinton's margins in many of these states were large which has given her a 196 Pledged Delegate lead. That will not be easy to make up. Bernie still has a chance, no question this isn't over, but Clinton is clearly in the driver's seat
Perhaps a little hyperbole on my end, but it's necessary to counter the constant rhetoric on mass-media that the D primaries are effectively over.

In fact when I ask myself why Bernie didn't run years earlier, I explain it by thinking that, maybe now that he is in old age, he will have less to lose should anything sinister happen to him. But of course that's not a factor for him.

Well, yes, of course that's it.

Then again, Bernie is smart enough not to buy into tinfoil hat conspiracy theories.

Most progressives don't.
