Sanders' Supposed "Campaign Momentum" Is A Myth
Here is some of what Jay Bookman has to say about that in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
One recurring theme among Sanders’ avid supporters is the claim that Bernie now has momentum, that much of Hillary Clinton’s obvious lead in delegates and the popular vote was built early in the race, before Bernie had the money and media visibility to be heard, and in primaries that were located disproportionately in the South. The implication is that the importance of those earlier primaries ought to be diminished, with more weight given to more recent outcomes.
