Sanders Touts Recent Wins: Clearly We Have The Momentum

Bernie Sanders allowed himself some time to brag about his recent string of primary victories, even though he’s still a long way from capturing the nomination from Clinton.

We won three landslides last night. We won six out of seven contests in the last 11 days. We’ve cut Secretary Clinton’s lead by a third during that period of time,” the Vermont Senator said on This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

“A national poll just came out that had us 1 point ahead of Secretary Clinton, when we started 60 points behind.”

“And every national and state poll that I have seen, virtually every one, has us defeating Donald Trump. CNN had us defeating him by 20 points.”

The Hill reports:

Sanders said his campaign has momentum, predicting he will end up with more pledged delegates that rival Hillary Clinton.

“And then I think the super-delegates are going to have make a very difficult decision, and that is if a candidate wins in a state by 40 or 50 points, who are you going to give your vote to?” he asked. “And second of all, which candidate is better positioned to defeat Trump or any of the other Republican candidates? I think a lot of the super-delegates are going to conclude that it’s Bernie Sanders.”

Sanders predicted a strong showing in Wisconsin and said he has a “real shot” in New York.

“And then we go out to California. You go out to Oregon. That’s the most progressive part of America. We think we’re going to do very well there,” he added.

“So I will not deny for one second that we still remain the underdogs, but we have come a long, long way, you will have to concede, in the last 10 months. We do have a path toward victory.”
