(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) -- LOS ANGELES — Bernie Sanders is no longer the juggernaut the Democratic establishment once feared.
Just weeks ago, after pulling out a popular vote victory in Iowa, a narrow win in New Hampshire, and a rout in Nevada, the Democratic primary almost looked all wrapped up. The race may not yet be over, but Sanders has proven he is far from unstoppable.
Former Vice President Joe Biden's resounding victory in South Carolina meant that Sanders was back on the defensive in Texas and several states in the Deep South. Despite spending months on black outreach, Sanders, 78, was unable to improve substantially upon his support in states such as North Carolina, which he won in 2016. In many of those states, Sanders performed worse in many of those states than he did in 2016, when he was on the losing end of a challenge to Hillary Clinton.
