Bernie Sanders certainly looked remarkably lifelike for most of Thursday night’s #DemDebate in New York, but he did acknowledge that his campaign was murdered in the Deep South, the most conservative area of the country.

.@BernieSanders: We got "murdered" in the Deep South. But we are out of there and heading to the West.

"We got muhduhed dere," Sanders says of the deep south.

Hillary Clinton supporters like Democrat strategist Donna Brazile didn’t show much remorse, but they did wish that Sanders would quit disparaging them.
Dammit Bernie, stop writing off the South.

So what exactly does Senator Sanders mean when he says "deep south"?

Deep South is code for….

"Hillary Clinton cleaned our clocks in the Deep South. We got murdered there," Sanders says
Clinton raises eyebrows, takes notes at podium.

Ugh @SenSanders just stop with this: Sec. Clinton cleaned our clock in the Deep South, the most conservative part of the country.

Sanders: Clinton "cleaned our clock in the Deep South." BUT THIS ELECTION ISN'T OVER. 100 million ppl STILL haven't voted! Let people speak!
— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) April 15, 2016
just odd for Bernie Sanders — the 50 state candidate — to be dismissing the south like that
— Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) April 15, 2016
Senator Sanders again dismisses Democratic voters in the South as if they don't count.
— Jesse Ferguson (@JesseFFerguson) April 15, 2016
So voters in the deep south matter less? Asking for a friend.#DemDebate

Who's telling Sanders this Deep South line is a good idea?
— Katherine Miller (@katherinemiller) April 15, 2016
"We're out of the deep South now" — Sanders. Translation: Whew!
— Trip Gabriel (@tripgabriel) April 15, 2016
Sanders: "We are out of the Deep South now"
Never explains that the March 15 states of FL/OH/IL/MO weren't the "Deep South"…
— Mark Murray (@mmurraypolitics) April 15, 2016
Ohio was the deep south?
— R Paine (@ArrghPaine) April 15, 2016
Again with Bernie swiping at “the deep South” and boasting that he won places like Utah
— daveweigel (@daveweigel) April 15, 2016
"the deep South" https://t.co/7BJXCwFb5d
— Josh Barro (@jbarro) April 15, 2016
Florida, Virginia, Texas, Missouri, etc. not exactly the “deep south”
— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) April 15, 2016
Bernie, tread lightly on this "Deep South" talking point. Everyone knows DS = largely blk in Dem primaries. Don't go there… #DemDebate
— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) April 15, 2016
Writing off her wins In the Deep South=writing off a lot of black voters. Does he really want to do that?
— Beth Fouhy (@bfouhy) April 15, 2016
@jbouie remember when noted conservative Barack Obama cleaned up in the Deep South in the '08 primary?
