    Click on a participant to pop-up their full list of quotations
    from PBS Democratic WI Debate (number of quotes indicated):
  • Bernie Sanders (18) Democratic Presidential candidate
  • Hillary Clinton (17) Democratic Presidential candidate
    OR click on an issue category below for a subset.

    This debate took place on Feb. 11, 2016, as part of the lead-up to "Super Tuesday" (March 1, 2016) and "Super Saturday" (March 5-6, 2016). (Wisconsin, where this debate took place, doesn't vote until April 5).

  • Hillary Clinton widened her lead over Bernie Sanders on Super Saturday.

  • Sanders' current strategy is that his supporters petition the superdelegates to vote based on their state results, rather than based on previous pledges (overwhelmingly to Hillary). However, for this strategy to work, Sanders must win more elected delegates in the primaries and caucuses -- and so far that has not happened -- he TIED Hillary on Super Saturday but lost ground on delegates the week before.

  • Sanders' supporters demand too that the media outlets report the elected delegate count, rather than the total including the superdelegate count--we report both--the problem for Sanders is that he is losing by both counts.
