I don't think us Californians need hearing Bernie cut and paste his pep rally speeches in yet another debate.

3. bad move, Hillary

I drive all around NJ on my job and to date, I've only seen one sign for you. No bumper stickers.

Well, let's see if you can draw Bernie-style crowds. Should be interesting.

Bernie had more signs and big rallies in New York, and got his ass kicked.

She should be focusing on Trump and the upcoming GE. Bernie doesn't stand a chance; it's over for him. Why should she waste her time and money on him?

37. Californians are feeling the Bern and feeling it strong.

We are concerned about the environment, about water, about democratic values, about the cost of housing which in California is way out of proportion with ordinary wages.

We are worried about the lack of good jobs, about the inordinately high cost of education and the burden that young people bear due to their student loans.

We want everyone to be able to afford healthcare. We want children to have decent education and especially affordable childcare and attention in early childhood when mom has to work just to pay the exorbitant rents in California.

I went to a community near my own. We dropped the list of names we had and just went door to door. The enthusiasm for Bernie was astounding. I've done a lot of campaigning in my life, and I have never seen anything like it.

Who knows what the primary results will be here? I can't claim to have a crystal-ball-reading on that. But Hillary problem has reason to be worried.

She is not well liked in California. And it is no wonder. She mostly comes here to see rich people and ask them for money. I don't think she cares much about our issues at all.

Hillary backed out on the California debate. We in California do not like that.

7. yep, internal polling must be terrible

But I wonder if her campaigning has an adverse effect. Perhaps the more she does it, the worse her numbers go. She doesn't draw more than a couple hundred people anyway.

....railing about how horrible the system is. Seems to be working, considering the count is currently 2310 to 1542.

that figure includes the super delegates... those small gatherings where she was meeting people had nothing to do with their decision, most of them signed on before the campaign really even began.

8. "Embarrassing defeat"?



Reality is that she's going to win in New Jersey by about 15%, just getting a head start on burying Sanders in California, that's all.

Other than Montana and the Dakotas, all the remaining primaries are hers.

that whole section of states, holy cow it runs from Kansas to Washington!
Missouri, Kentucky, Iowa and Indiana the THINNEST of margins.
Looks to me like Bernie is a strong contender lacking critical baggage.
situation serious.
