Joe Biden is handily defeating Bernie Sanders in the Florida Democratic Primary as of Tuesday night, taking over 60% of the popular vote in the state with more than half of results accounted for.

Biden had been expected to cruise to an easy win in the primary, in which an electorate with a large share of older and black voters are participating.

Illinois and Arizona are also voting today, after a controversy in which many concerned citizens called for the states to postpone their primaries to advert spread of the Chinese coronavirus.

Concerns about the disease appear to have dampened turnout in Florida, where one Orlando-area source described a turnout of 20% of eligible voters coming out to vote.

Florida has 248 delegates, the fourth-most of any state in the country.

The states declined to postpone the contests, and Democratic National Convention chair Tom Perez has warned that states that do postpone could face possible delegate ramifications at the convention. Apparently keeping things going as usual is of greater importance to the Democratic Party than concerns over the virus.

Polls have Biden leading safely in all three of the medium-to-large states to vote on Super Tuesday III. The former Vice President drew criticism by encouraging his supporters to turn out and vote for him in spite of the coronavirus epidemic.

If Bernie Sanders fails to win Arizona, it’s probably safe to say that the Democratic Primary is effectively over.

NEW: Trump Ad Breaks Down Consequences of “Defund the Police”

Half of Democrats support defunding the police.

Published

A new Donald J. Trump for President campaign ad breaks down the implications of the national “defund the police” movement, pointing to the considerable share of national and congressional Democrats who would push to defund law enforcement in the event of a Joe Biden victory in November.

The ad features an automated 911 call system replacing an emergency dispatcher, with a recorded voice explaining that the revocation of police funding eliminated the 911 operator. The caller is told to press an appropriate key to report a rape or murder, with the emergency phone line resembling a corporate customer service phone line designed to avoid the time-consuming process of an in-person human conversation.

Watch the ad here:

Due to defunding of the police department, we’re sorry… But no one is here to take your call.

Polling reveals that around 50% of Democrats support the movement to defund the police in the wake of the death of George Floyd and nationwide race riots. City officials in Minneapolis and across the country have already organized plans to neuter their municipal police departments, with councilors in the former pledging a wholesale abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department.

Biden himself has proved reluctant to endorse the police defunding movement, but it’s all but guaranteed the elder Democrat would be compromised by liberal radicals. Municipal councils that want to defund their police departments wouldn’t stand to lose any federal funding as a result of the delinquency in enforcing fundamental law and order in a Biden presidency, opening the door for liberal cities to move forward with a rejection of law enforcement entirely.
