1. It confirms the other recent polls, this will not be a blow out primary for anyone

2. Which means the delegates will be pretty evenly split, and again Sanders won't get much net benefit.

 

If Sanders does win, all he has to go on is bragging rights for this specific state. Hillary will have most pledged delegates, most committed super delegates, most total delegates, most popular vote and most major party endorsements.

In a way, I really want Sanders to 'continue to fight'...because it would be so great to see how he reacts to being ignored by the press and becoming irrelevant. If he continues in the race, he loses the chance to talk at the convention, and will anger enough of the Democratic Party members so that they will never try and incorporate his issues in the way he wants.

3. And Clinton will remain several hundred delegates short of what she needs for the nomination.

7. But, she will be declared the presumptive nominee because of the committed super delegates.

 

They are party loyalists who have very, very little chance of changing their minds.

5. " it would be so great to see how he reacts to being ignored by the press" They already tried that

 

early in the campaign and how did that work out for the Wall Street corporate media?

Not so well!

But Hillary was certainly grateful for their efforts on her behalf.

9. Twice in the last week I have heard the Hillary campaign say that they have received requests

 

for new press passes for their traveling press pool...from networks who are reassigning reporters now following Sanders.

This was both during a major donor conference call, and from a fundraiser last week with one of Hillary's major policy advisors. Sanders will find himself becoming increasingly irrelevant. He can't expect primary reporters to stay around after the primary is over, when someone else has been declared the presumptive nominee.

4. It's going to take a historic blowout to get SDs to even begin to have doubts.

And even that isn't likely to be enough to get them to overturn the will of the voters.

This poll, along with everything else that's come out, makes it pretty clear that a blowout isn't happening.

6. According to whom? You? Thanks for the info. Now we don't even have to watch on Tuesday!

 

Yet another weak talking point surfaces.

The "will of the voters"??!!!

Wall Street and corporate tycoons tried to buy the nomination for Hillary and even that wasn't enough to put away the old socialist from the tiny state of Vermont.

And against Trump she is toast.

She's gotta be the weakest presidential candidate ever put up by the Democratic Party in the past century if she somehow captures the nomination.

And you're putting your hopes on her???

Yikes!

Delusional!

10. Do you understand who the super delegates are?

 

They are mostly elected Democratic office holders, executives of the DNC and former presidents and vice-presidents. These are all very loyal Democrats, and those that have not been around as long owe their success in past and future elections in no small part to the financial support of the party. It is clear who the DNC and the Democratic establishment supports, and there will have to be some very compelling reason for most of them to go against the party.

This is likely the most clear decision the super delegates have had to face in a Democratic primary in years.

8. This is going to be a very close primary. No doubt about that.

and a huge blow to Clinton if she loses California, even if she wins NJ, as she does not have a majority in pure pledged delegates.
