Sanders vows to stay in Democratic race after Biden secures lead

Sanders vows to stay in Democratic race after Biden secures lead

Bernie Sanders stand together during his campaign event at Durham, New Hampshire.

The win for Biden in MI is a major warning sign for Trump, who flipped the state from the Democrats by just 10,000 votes in 2016, ahead of the 2020 general election.

Senator Sanders won in North Dakota but had hoped for an upset victory in the key state of MI to boost his flagging chances.

The Mississippi win, projected by U.S. networks, confirmed crucial and overwhelming support from African-American voters for Biden, the former vice president under the first black U.S. president, Barack Obama.

Biden trounced Sanders in MS, where the Democratic electorate is heavily skewed to older African American voters.

Biden, who had touted the Obama administration's decision to bail out the state's dominant auto industry, made a morning campaign stop on Tuesday at Detroit's first new auto assembly plant in decades, owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV.

Results from four more states, including the key battleground of MI, were due in shortly, with Biden looking to build an invincible lead in what has become a two-man race with the self-proclaimed democratic socialist Sanders. "We share a common goal, and together we'll defeat Donald Trump". This contrast was sharpest in MI, where voter turnout rose more than 10 percent, from 1.09 million in 2016 to 1.21 million this year, but Sanders' vote dropped from 599,000 in 2016 to 483,000 in 2020.

Running second to Joe Biden, Sanders pushes Democratic "establishment" to fight for younger voters' concerns.

Following a stellar performance at "Super Tuesday" last week, Biden, the former vice president, took a comfortable lead against Sanders, after some disappointing results in the initial states.

Three other contests had yet to announced conclusive results.

The results in Washington state are yet to be determined, with Sanders encouraged by vote counts so far.

Sanders said Sunday's debate will show voters which candidate is best positioned to beat Trump - but we've seen throughout this cycle how debates don't really change the standings of the race, and it's especially unlikely to happen this late in the primary.

Sanders won large majorities of voters under 30 years old in Michigan, Missouri and MS, yet that group had a smaller impact on the results this year.

It is expected that once all the delegates are awarded from Tuesday night that Biden will have significantly increased his lead over Sanders, with the likelihood of even bigger gains in next Tuesday's primaries in four large states-Florida, Illinois, Ohio and Arizona-which account for 577 delegates combined.

There are a lot of things that could explain why voters seem more open to Biden than Clinton.

Idaho and North Dakota were also voting.

Here are five takeaways from Tuesday's primary contests.

The former vice president reached out to Sanders on Tuesday evening, but will need to start talking about the issues the Vermont senator's supporters care about and show he understands their frustrations.

The men are scheduled to face off in a debate in Arizona on Sunday.
