Bernie Sanders Trounces 

Hillary In First Super 

Tuesday Results!



29 February, 2016

First Super Tuesday results:
Sanders 21 – Clinton 6

Americans in New Zealand might be the first one to change the game for the US primary elections, something that could be the turning point in the democratic race. 
The result are astounding with Bernie Sanders beating Hillary Clinton by 3 to 1.
New Zealand was the first of 39 countries where Democrats Abroad took part in the voting process. Other will host in-person voting between March 1-8; voting sites will open in 22 countries on Super Tuesday alone, and in 104 cities throughout the week.
Kat Allikian, Chair of Democrats Abroad New Zealand, said,
DEMOCRATS IN NEW ZEALAND HAVE MADE THE FIRST CONTRIBUTION TO WHAT COULD BE A DECISIVE DAY IN U.S. PRIMARY ELECTIONS”
Voting took place at the Public Bar and Eatery in Wellington at midnight local time, with the announcement made at 12:30 AM Wellington time.
Results from Democrats Abroad’s Global Presidential Primary site in Wellington, for midnight, March 1, are as follows:

Total ballots cast: 28

Bernie Sanders: 21
Hillary Clinton: 6
Spoiled Ballots: 1
All votes are unofficial until confirmed at the Global Voter Tally Center in Germany later this month. Final results of the Global Presidential Primary, including delegate apportionment, will be announced on March 21st.
Katie Solon, International Chair of Democrats Abroad, said, “We hope that the results tonight inspire other Democrats in New Zealand and around the world to cast their votes and influence the direction of our party and our country.”
Remote voting in the Global Primary has already started – Democrats living abroad can vote now via email attachment, mail or fax by visiting democratsabroad.org/gpp.

  1. Unfortunately, foreigners tend to have much more common sense than American voters (meaning Hillary will likely win),
