New fivethirtyeight CA numbers

fivethirtyeight just released their new number for the California primaries.

Polls Only Polls+
Trump 89 72
Cruz 8 25

Clinton 78 88
Sanders 22 12

These are odds of winning the primary. The + means polls plus trending. Nate Silver's organization has an unmatched level of accuracy, like the results or not.
