Exit poll from Mississippi has Biden winning 84% of the black vote, Sanders winning 13%.— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) March 11, 2020
Sanders was defeated in similar fashion in Mississippi by Hillary Clinton in 2016. But he can't afford to lose Michigan. And we may not know what happens there until Wednesday afternoon.
More than one pundit noted that if Bernie can't compete for black voters, it's game over.
