Democrats need Sanders to stay in the race

Democrats need Sanders to stay in the race

This is how things are running for the Democratic Party right now. On Super Tuesday, Clinton showed her supremacy by winning a lot of major states.  There is support from elected officials and important wins, as polls have shown.  The downfall for Clinton though, is that, despite all these great victories, she is not going to win in states like Alabama or Texas. 

Pulling out the calculator shows that things are not looking too bright for Sen. Sanders who lost in 7 out of 11 states. To this, one must add that Clinton has more than doubled her number of delegates. 

However, one thing that was clear last Tuesday was that the Democratic Party has the ability to bring voters to the polls, which is very important for the success of the party in November. As a matter of fact, there are already voices in the party that suggest Sen. Sanders should leave the race and join Clinton to strengthen the Party. This is not really a good plan since, interestingly, the Democrats need Sanders to stay in the race.

With his line of speech, Sanders has changed the conversations regarding important issues that typically are presented to voters during the race for general elections. As Democrats are demanding plausible and strong reasons to support their candidates, Sen. Sanders has given them precisely that.  This means more voters upping and potentially running to vote for the general elections.

In fact, both Clinton and Sanders have spoken about tax issues, ideas on how to create job equity, and how to make college more affordable.  Therefore, for the good of the Party, Sanders should not leave the race. He is not going anywhere without a good fight. He has very passionate supporters, and this is something that will benefit the party in the whole run.
