The disappointing results for Bernie Sanders could be due to the colleges' Spring Break

The results of the primary election on 15 March has been somewhat disappointing for Bernie Sanders. He was expected to do well, but lose quite heavily to Hillary Clinton in a few states, notably Florida and Ohio.

There was some prediction a week or two earlier that the elections will be bad for Bernie Sanders. This is the week that most colleges are on their Spring Break. The college students, who were strongly in support of Bernie Sanders, would be travelling on holiday and would not be voting. In earlier voting states, Bernie Sanders capture over 80% of the votes of young people.

At first, I thought that many of the young people would somehow vote, but it seems that many of them did not. This could be the reason for the unexpectedly poor results for Bernie Sanders.
