FEATURING JIM HIGHTOWER – One week ago an NBC News/Marist poll found Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders leading former Vice President Joe Biden almost two to one for the Democratic Presidential nomination in the Texas primary. Sanders polled at 34% to Biden at only 19%. On Super Tuesday none of that held. It was Biden who won the Texas race with 34% of votes cast while Sanders came in at 30%.
A similar scenario played in various other Super Tuesday states affirming that the decision by centrist candidates Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg to back out and endorse Biden helped the former Vice President dramatically.
