Bernie Sanders Adamant He Can Still Win

Sanders tells reporters on delegate count, "I can add”

“We are fighting here in South Carolina as hard as we can but within the context, you know, I think Secretary Clinton was in California the other day, I mean she is writing off the state, that’s the real world that we are living,” he said.

“There are a number of people who say the math just doesn’t add up. How do you think you can win the nomination?” Vega asked.

“By getting more delegates than my opponent,” Sanders retorted. “I am pretty good at arithmetic and I can add.”

“Know what?” the Vermont Senator continued. “We’re going to win a lot of them.”

Pressed to say just how many or make any prediction, Sanders threw up his hands. His press conference, which he billed as a conversation about poverty in the state and among children, had come too far off course. “Here we are talking about children in South Carolina in the wealthiest country in the world who have nothing and you’re asking me to predict to you how many votes I am going to get?” Sanders said bristly. “I don’t know. Nor do you. I will tell you the answer to that on Wednesday, how’s that.”
