Rove: ‘Premature’ to Say Bernie Is the Nominee
ROVE: “We will have the biggest primary we have had thus far on Saturday with 54 delegates up for grabs. Now, having said that, there is a problem in stopping Bernie. In New Hampshire, the three more moderate candidates, Mayor Pete, Joe Biden, and Klobuchar got 52 percent of the vote. Bernie got 26 percent. But because some of them didn't get to the 15 percent threshold that you have to have in every district and state, he got 37.5 percent of the delegates with 26 percent of the vote. I think it's premature, but the Democrats, if they don’t want Bernie, are going to have to step up, find a way to consolidate that field and then stay in for a long, protracted fight that may last all the way to June before somebody ends up with enough votes to win on the first ballot."
