CNN’s Chalian: Biden Won North Carolina Because Voters Said They Went For the Person Who Could Beat Trump

‘63%, nearly 2/3 of the electorate in North Carolina today says they wanted a candidate who could defeat Trump’

EXCERPT:

CHALIAN: “Take a look at the black vote. 27 percent of the electorate, roughly a quarter like we saw in Virginia with a similar result that we saw in Virginia. 63 percent of black voters in North Carolina went for Joe Biden. 16 percent for Sanders. Huge, huge margin of victory there for Biden. And look again. Michael Bloomberg like in Virginia is only at 10 percent of African-American voters. His whole strategy was to make a run against Joe Biden’s hold on the African-American vote. And take a look at the electability issue. 63 percent, nearly 2/3 of the electorate in North Carolina today says they wanted a candidate who could defeat Trump. How those voters split, Biden got 47 percent of that huge part of the electorate that says they want a Trump defeater. Sanders only got 19 percent. And if you thought Michael Bloomberg’s electability factor was working, it’s not. He only got 12% of those voters in North Carolina looking for a Trump defeater.”
