Andy Hsia-Coron: If the state’s youth turn out, Bernie will win this state in a lopsided victory. If that happens, the Party could nominate him no matter what Hillary or MSNBC says.
veryone seems to be discussing whether, if Bernie doesn’t get the nomination, his supporters should vote for Hillary. One thing to keep in mind is that the FBI is currently conducting an inquiry into her emails.

Berry Craig: The Republicans only have a Plan A in The Donald, a racist, sexist, nativist, misogynist, greed-is-good, union-busting demagogue who is the Real McCoy scandal of 2016.
Robert Nelson: This year young people are particularly active. Democratic Party leaders seem not to care. They feel that the young enthusiastic voters who have gathered around the candidacy of Bernie Sanders can be taken for granted in the fall. Will Democrats Win

Robert Borosage: As movement builder, he has every reason to stay in the race. He’s still drawing stunning crowds. He’s still energizing a new generation. He has a responsibility to take his message across the country, to educate and proselytize.

Anyway, Trump’s trousers blazed anew when he said, “Hillary Clinton wants to abolish the 2nd Amendment.” Politifact challenged Trump to […]
Robert Reich: Political analysts have underestimated Trump from the jump because they’ve been looking through the rear-view mirror of politics as it used to be. Trump Might Win
