The die-hard Cruz support makes sense now. Someone liking Cruz that much isn't possible unless they are a paid propagandist.

California doesnt have a large black population. Only 5% of the population is African American.

He isn't going to win but at least he is making the dem party take notice that a sizeable portion of their base is not happy with having a DINO as their nominee.

Hopefully, but unlikely, Hillary if elected president will remember some of that instead of just helping the republicans bend us over for the corporations like Bill did.

Sadly, it's now all about "beating Trump". Which covers up the sad fact that Hillary would be considered a "win" for democrats.

Let me pose a question, will Hillary if elected support TPP? If she does are you all good with that? Want to get you on the record now.

Neither candidate can win without the Super Delegates.

This speaks to Hillary's weakness as a candidate.

Bernie is not out of it.

Yes, but 40% are hispanic and 12% are Asian and they dont have a similar love for Hillary. And of course, among people under 45, there is no love for Hillary no matter what the race.

Don't count Bernie Sanders out yet. Bipartisanreport.com:

Quote:
According to independently conducted online polling, up to 100% of supporters of US Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders would back him in the general election if he were to lose the Democratic nomination and run as an Independent. The poll used convenience samples of the active members of 25 large Bernie Sanders Facebook groups, simply asking if “people would change their vote” if Sanders lost the nomination.

According to the latest national poll numbers, Sanders supporters make up about half of the Democratic Party. Sanders supporters also include by a massive margin the most voters aged 18-40, whose support is crucial to winning a general election.

Combining those numbers with the surprising number of Republicans who would vote for Sanders and with the Independents and Unaffiliated voters who support the Senator leaves him with a sizeable electoral coalition. Sanders may be sitting on what turns out to be the most viable potential non-major party presidential campaign in a long, long time.

It's actually 6.67%. And that's ~2.3 million people. It's the state with the fifth largest black population.

that's true but she only needs 35% of remaining pledged delegates to get there. Bernie's percent keeps going up with every primary because he's not getting enough even when he wins. That's likely to be the case again tonight - even if he won both (and I think that Hillary will win KY while he takes OR), he will not net enough delegates to improve that much on his deficit and he will need an even higher percentage of the remaining races.
