If he could convince cruz and rubio to release their delegates to him.....

That would give kasich 890, plus any he could garner in the remaining primaries. Highly unlikely though.

It is complicated though: http://lawnewz.com/important/not-so-fast-ted-cruz-delegates-are-still-in-play/

Today's Google Doodle honors urban planner Jane Jacobs:



Urban planning legend and former Toronto resident Jane Jacobs would have turned 100 today. Her 1961 book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, remains one of the most influential works on urban planning.

Jacobs, who died in 2006, made her name in the U.S. but lived in Toronto in the late 1960s.

Through her writing and activism, she changed the way many of us think about the places we live.

Google is celebrating Jacobs with a Google Doodle that appears on its home page today.

I feel the same way.

He will shred the democratic nominee, whoever it is. It makes me sick thinking about it.

And God forbid, if he wins.... who will actually run the country? Trump is only in this for his gargantuan ego and has no concern for the country, the population, or governmental procedures.

Today's Google Doodle honors mathematician/juggler Claude Shannon:



He transformed digital computing and electronic communication

Claude Shannon, nicknamed “the father of information theory” for his work on digital computing and electronic communication, was also a juggling unicyclist who would have turned 100 on Saturday.

To mark his birthday and his achievements, Saturday’s Google Doodle honored Shannon, depicting him juggling a set of ones and zeroes, the numbers he used to transform computing after learning they could be used to represent words, pictures, videos and more. While he was a research assistant at MIT, Shannon drew from Boolean algebra to pioneer digital computing, using the value of “1” for circuits turned on, and the value of “0” for circuits that were off. Before Shannon moved to MIT, he also became known for a different talent: juggling while riding a unicycle around Bell Labs.

Outside of his research lab, Shannon also had a knack for inventions, some of which—including his flame-throwing trumpets and rocket-powered Frisbees—had little practical function. He died in 2001 at the age of 84 after suffering from dementia.
