The election was very close, but in the end Bernie had a 20,0000 margin of victory in votes.

Hillary can win in the bigoted South, but in the Industrial Mid-West she fell short. Her wrongful comment that Sanders had voted against the Auto Industry bailout did not fool the voters.

In major polls Hillary does  not do very well in the 'honesty' area.

It would be a major mistake for the Democratic Party to nominate her, because only Senator Sanders can beat bigoted Donald Trump.

Here is the New York Times report:

Senator Bernie Sanders scored an upset win in the Michigan Democratic primary, threatening to prolong a Democratic campaign that Hillary Clinton appeared to have all but locked up last week.

Mrs. Clinton lost badly in Michigan among independents, showed continued weakness with working-class white Democrats, and was unable to count on as much of an advantage with black voters as she had in the South.

Addressing reporters in Miami while the votes in Michigan were still being counted, Mr. Sanders said that his powerful showing indicated that “the political revolution that we’re talking about is strong in every part of the country.”

“And frankly,” he added, “we believe that our strongest areas are yet to happen.”
