Seth Abramson: Here are a dozen pieces of hard data that Sanders supporters are particularly exercised about right now, primarily because most Sanders supporters believe Donald Trump to be a clear and present danger to the nation, and therefore can’t imagine why Democrats remain unable to have an honest conversation about who could — or will — be in a position to stop him.
Tina Dupuy: The Donald talking about his junk nearly nonstop for the last two weeks is like the 10th or 11th thing with him that makes him unqualified for the office he’s seeking.
Robert Nelson: Donald Trump’s success in the recent primaries has put the word ‘fascism’ squarely on our national agenda. Given the human suffering that fascism inflicted, it is well worth researching the causes. Fascism Coming
