Does anyone else think its weird that there's zero interest in the New Jersey Democratic primary, the 9th largest contest in the country?

2. It'll be called immediately and Hillary will win by 20 points, securing the Democratic nomination.

So it just does not fit into the media's and Sandersís neck and neck horse race narrative.

3. Do you mean we should talk about the state in which Hillary

Will reach the magic number of required delegates? Oh, some thinks we can exclude NJ, NY, the southern states, Texas and only talk about other states. Well, in some dreams but in reality it doesn't work that way.

4. If it's positive for Hillary, it'll get ignored. It's what our M$M does. Good thing Rachel

Maddow showed the Hillary rally in New Jersey or they wouldn't give them any attention at all. I mean, Jon Bon Jovi was there, for chrissakes!

6. It's going to be called after like 10 minutes (since there are no exits)....

for Hillary so the media isn't hyping it up. It's weird and it's even weirder that Sanders has ignored it. He needs the state to have any shot whatsoever of beating Clinton. CA is also 3 hours later (and bigger) so while it won't change the race, I can see why it is getting more hype.

7. Sanders campaign knows he hasn't a chance in hell of winning the state.

So it doesn't matter to him.

And it will be enough to put them over the line.

8. yes the sanders crowd is not even condemning a hillary win as nothing but cheating and fraud. that

10. The media wants the outcome to still be in doubt, so they only focus on CA where it MIGHT be close.

A big state expected to be a blowout win for the frontrunner doesn't fit their "we've still got a horse race" narrative.

13. Not really

It's interesting to see the 'impact' we will have on the Nomination -

But when we count is in the GE.

This state is going Trump on the R - side.

Clinton is a New Yorker - Trump is a New Yorker. The love hate relationship with the NYC area is going to be interesting.


In GE - Christie is seriously going to hurt Trump. The situation in Atlantic City doesn't make it any better.

16. I'm not sure I understand what you are saying. NJ is not going to Trump in the General.

This is a Blue state in Presidential elections by far.

19. In the R Primary

It's all Trump.

In my town - this is interesting . . . There is a Council Election/Primary next week. The same people that have the Indie/Republican slate all have Clinton Signs. They also have Larsen signs (so called Reagan Republican but actually TeaPublican) on their yards.

It's going to be a blow out for Clinton in GE - but it gets interesting because at least out in Horse Country - folks are itching for a change. I think next November I'll have Clinton for a President but a TeaParty member of the house. Sanders and Trump haven't tapped into this special flavor of anger. Hunterdon is one of the wealthiest counties in America and the Republicans out here may very well be itching to punish Trump for being kissy face besties with Christie.


What to look for - and I think the Blue Jersey blog will be the best for this -

HOW many people voted in our towns/counties.

How many votes Clinton Garners. How many votes the other party garners for other offices - local, state, Federal.

Our last election I noticed there were few votes for Lance than there were Booker in our town. Almost an even split of registereds in the town. I think a lot of Republicans simply didn't vote for Lance. They voted Booker for Sen, everything else Republican and abstained from pressing the button for Lance.


How many will be abstaining in the Presidential election? Blow out for Clinton - but I'm going to get stuck with someone even worse than Lance as a member of the House.

15. New Jersy is for Hillary! Bernie couldn't get himself elected Dog Catcher here.

He hasn't campaigned here and Hillary doesn't have to. We want her to go out and stave off the republican ratfucking in California!

20. "He hasn't campaigned here"

That is weird. For someone who's trying to garner as many pledged delegate as he can, in order to make a case for the superdelegates, he's putting all his eggs in one basket (i.e. CA). Maybe he thinks he has a case, if he can win the biggest state (population and delegate-wise), even if its by a couple points. Then again, Obama lost CA in 2008 by like 8 points, and he still won the nomination.

25. Well, Hell . . .

I care. I was born and raised in New Jersey, have family and friends still living in state. Plus, there's a very good chance the Garden State gives Hillary Clinton the final push to official presumptive nominee status.

i'll be watching Tuesday and cheering loudly. Even though I'm nearly 700 miles away.

Although today I have seen the talking heads discuss it a few times.

28. Oh, Okay

My mistake, BootinUP :0).

And, of course, you're right. The media is obviously avoiding the elephant in the room. New Jersey is Clinton country. The Virgin Islands and PR will get her half way there. But unless the super delegates start piling on, New Jersey will have the honor of taking HRC across the line.

YES!
