Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has won the Colorado primary, stemming the tide after sustaining many crushing losses in the Bible belt to begin Super Tuesday.
The Associated Press called the race for Sanders as of 7:21 p.m MST, with 486,445 votes being counted from Colorado Democrats. Sanders currently has 36 percent of the vote, with former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg getting 24 percent, former Vice President Joe Biden receiving 20 percent, Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) at 17 percent, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) at 1 percent.
Sanders supporters are celebrating the big victory, which they hope is the first major one of many before Super Tuesday comes to an end.

Although Sanders received a resounding victory in Colorado, he will not be receiving 100 percent of the state’s delegates. Candidates must break the 15 percent threshold statewide or within one of the state’s seven Congressional districts in order to receive some of the state’s 67 pledged delegates. As many as four different candidates could reach that threshold and lay claim to some of the state’s apportioned delegates.
There are 23 delegates that will be designated on a proportional statewide basis while 44 are assigned based on the results within the state’s seven Congressional districts. In addition, the state has another dozen superdelegates who may very well play a role in deciding the nominee at the DNC convention in Milwaukee, Wis. later this year, particularly if the convention is brokered after delegates cannot decide who the candidate is on the first ballot.
Biden gained the early momentum over Sanders and other contenders on Super Tuesday after he won in Virginia, North Carolina, and other delegate-rich southern states:
Joe Biden has been projected as the winner of the Virginia Democratic Primary, winning the state in overwhelming fashion and showing his appeal in southern states and to Black voters.
The first round of Super Tuesday returns showed Biden carrying the state in a landslide.
Both Bloomberg and Sanders had hoped to be competitive in the traditionally moderate state, with the former having spent a considerable amount of money hoping to block out Biden. But it appears Biden’s appeal to southern Democrats proved more effective than Bloomberg’s money.
Early returns show the former Vice President with more than 55% of the vote, perhaps repeating his dominant South Carolina victory in the more affluent southern state…
North Carolina has also been called for Biden as polls closed in the state. A victory in that state would represent an even more favorable development for Biden, who was expected to compete with Sanders closely in the Tarheel State.
Sanders may have a chance to bridge the gap with Biden as the states of Texas and California, two states with large Hispanic populations, have yet to be decided.

Joe Rogan Takes Joe Biden To Task: “Trump Will Eat Him Alive”
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking.”
Joe Rogan took presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden to task on his podcast Friday, calling out Democrats for refusing to admit that Biden appears to be cognitively challenged and lacking mental acuity.
Biden expressed exasperation with leading Democrats for refusing to consider that the 77-year old former Vice President might not be at his mental prime.
“You have to be able to call out s*** that’s wrong on your side. That’s the problem the Democratic Party is having right now with that Joe Biden guy. You guys have to be able to call it out. You can’t let this slide, because everybody else sees it, and Trump is going to eat him alive.”
Rogan had earlier pointed to Biden’s tendency towards serial gaffes as a disqualifier for the presidency, expressing his view that Biden’s cognitive decline was obvious and visible.
“He stumbles through s***, he forgets what he’s talking about… The guy can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking.”
Joe Biden has claimed that he’s running for the Senate instead of the presidency, confused his wife with his sister during a Super Tuesday victory speech, and stated that 150 million Americans have died of gun violence in the past two decades.
Watch the candid segment of the Joe Rogan Experience here:
Ironically, while Rogan’s primary audience appears to be younger conservative men, the longtime MMA announcer leans to the left of the political spectrum and endorsed Bernie Sanders last year.
Establishment Democrats have sought to shut down discussion of Biden’s mental state, likening serious questions as to the prospect of the former Vice President’s potential cognitive decline to be “disinformation campaigns.”
Should they prove unable to simply silence questions as to the party elder’s acuity, they’ll have no one to blame but themselves.
