Columbia (South Carolina), Feb 26: Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will look to register a big win over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Primary to be held on Saturday (February 27).
Hillary hasn't been able to beat Sanders as decisively as the latter has beaten her at New Hampshire primary earlier this month (he won by 22 points as against Hillary's best win margin of five points in Nevada).
In the Iowa Caucuses on February 1, Hillary just about managed
to end ahead of Sanders.
South Carolina could be the much-awaited moment for the supporters of Hillary, who is leading by an average of 24 per cent points in the preference polls.
Sanders, on the other hand, looked a strong opponent after winning New Hampshire on February 9 and hoped to repeat the same in South Carolina. But the results of the Nevada Caucuses seemed to have halted his momentum. African-Americans, who make up a big part of the Democratic vote in the southern state, are known to be pro-Hillary though that doesn't mean the latter is taking them for granted.
