The center of the U.S. political world moves to Nevada from New Hampshire, then South Carolina and Super Tuesday in 14 states on March 3. If Iowa was a fiasco, the New Hampshire results muddled the Democratic race even more, with Senator Bernie Sanders winning but seeing his vote margin decreasing from 60% in 2016 to under 30% this time around.
More moderate candidates: ex-mayor of Indianapolis Pete Buttigieg, Senator Amy Klobuchar, and ex-vice president Joe Biden received over 50% of the votes. In a bit of a surprising development, in Nevada a key labor union expected to back Sanders decided not to support any candidate largely because Senator Sanders Medicare for All proposal would undermine the health care they have fought to get from their employers.
