Biden wins big in South Carolina But will minority vote overtake devout Socialist Bernie Sanders?

The mature black voters in South Carolina saved Joe Biden's butt from extinction, for now.  
 Younger black voters went with Crazy Bernie.  But, it wasn't nearly enough to keep Biden from a huge win.  What happens in the other states?      
AOL News reports Vice President Joe Biden notched his first victory of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary on Saturday with a win in South Carolina that his campaign hopes will halt Bernie Sanders’s momentum and reset the race heading into Super Tuesday.

The Associated Press declared Biden the winner shortly after polls closed in the state at 7 p.m. ET.

Biden drew robust support from African-Americans in South Carolina, who make up nearly 60 percent of the state’s Democratic electorate. While Sanders has worked hard to build alliances with African-Americans after being trounced by Hillary Clinton in South Carolina in 2016, the best known black politician in the sate, Rep. James Clyburn, endorsed Biden.
