Bernie Sanders attends Warriors’ game with actor Danny Glover. Big question. Who bought the tickets?

That's what everyone is asking! Could it have been Danny Glover? He has money, much more than Bernie I'm sure. Perhaps some Wall Street tycoon or billionaire corporate CEO? mmmmmm big mystery. Needs to be solved.
In any case, it looks like Bernie had some badly needed fun and down time if only for an hour or so. Imagine 2015

OAKLAND (KRON) — The Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders caught the last half of Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference finals on Monday night in Oakland.

Sanders snuck in during half time and sat with actor and Bay Area resident Danny Glover as the Golden State Warriors battled Oklahoma City Thunder for the Western Conference title.

Accompanied by Secret Service, Sanders sat in row 15 of section 108 as the Warriors beat the Thunder to advance to the NBA Finals.

After the game, Sanders told CNN reporters that that game was “a very good omen for our campaign.” He is referring to the Warriors making a comeback from being 3-1 against the Thunder in the series.



Bernie Sanders Says: Clinton Cannot Clinch Nomination before Convention

Press Release

Clinton Cannot Clinch Nomination before Convention, Sanders Says
May 31, 2016

MONTEREY, Calif. – Campaigning Tuesday along California’s Pacific Coast, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders said neither he nor Hillary Clinton will win enough pledged delegates on June 7 to secure the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

A total of 694 delegates are at stake in six states with contests next Tuesday. “No candidate will end up with the number of pledged delegates needed to win the nomination,” Sanders told 7,800 supporters at an outdoor rally here.

The close contest will mean that the selection of a nominee will fall to superdelegates. Those elected officials and other party power brokers won’t cast their votes until July at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

He aims to persuade superdelegates that it is in their own self-interest and the best interests of their party that Democrats nominate the candidate best able to defeat Donald Trump.

LATEST POLL JUNE 1 Clinton 40% Trump 38% Johnson 5% Stein 3%

Poll: Clinton barely ahead of Trump nationally
BY Eliza Collins

Hillary Clinton holds just a slight advantage over Donald Trump nationally, but her lead grew tighter when third-party candidates are added into the race.

A Quinnipiac University Poll out Wednesday found that when Clinton and Trump were one-on-one in a national general election matchup, she held a 4-point lead over the billionaire, 45% to 41%.

That number tightens even more when Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein were added. When all four candidates were factored in, the former secretary of State had 40%, Trump had 38%, Johnson had 5% and Stein got 3%.

The Trump-Clinton matchup had a noticeable gender gap. Fifty-one percent of men went Republican, while 35% of men went Democratic. Meanwhile, 54% of women surveyed backed Clinton, while 30% supported Trump.

There is some good news for Bernie Sanders in the survey. The Vermont senator led Trump in a general election matchup 48% to 39%.

CNN Poll of Polls: Two points separate Clinton and Trump Clinton 45% Trump 43%

CNN Poll of Polls: Two points separate Clinton and Trump

Washington (CNN) — With the final primaries of the 2016 nomination season approaching, a new CNN Poll of Polls finds the candidates most likely to lead their parties into the general election are locked in a tight contest. Hillary Clinton holds an average of 45% support while 43% back Donald Trump across five recent nationwide polls of registered voters.

The Poll of Polls suggests a vastly different race than many anticipated.

Throughout March and April, public polling on the presidential race found Clinton well ahead of Trump, with the former secretary of state holding double-digit leads over the businessman in 10 out of the 14 polls that met CNN's standards for reporting in those months.

The CNN Poll of Polls is an average of the results of the five most recent nationwide polls of presidential preference among registered voters. The Poll of Polls includes: The CBS News/New York Times poll conducted May 13-17, the Fox News poll conducted May 14-17, the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted May 15-19, the ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted May 16-19, and the Quinnipiac University Poll conducted May 24-30. The poll of polls does not have a margin of sampling error.

Bernie Sanders Fights On: The Rolling Stone Interview


Bernie Sanders Fights On: The Rolling Stone Interview
A defiant candidate on what he's trying to achieve
By Tim Dickinson
May 31, 2016

Even at this late date, with the threat of a Donald Trump presidency looming, Sanders pulls no punches against Hillary Clinton. His stump speech links her to a "rigged economy" – highlighting "hundreds of thousands of dollars" in contributions to the Clinton campaign by a member of the Walton family, whose Wal-Mart fortune, Sanders says, is richer than the combined wealth of the "bottom 40 percent" of the American people. Transforming jeers into cheers, Sanders demands of the billionaire clan, "Instead of making large campaign contributions to Secretary Clinton, pay your workers a living wage!"

Offstage, out of the spotlight, there's little glamour to a grassroots presidential campaign. Late in the evening following the Salem rally, Rolling Stone met up with Sanders at his hotel – a no-frills La Quinta behind a Costco near the municipal airport, where rooms start at $89 a night. Pulling up a chair near the make-your-own-waffle station of the hotel's breakfast bar, Sanders is dressed in a rumpled blue dress shirt and gray slacks. The senator is plainly worn down from the grind of the day: At times during the interview he seems to rest his chin against his chest, as he peers intently over the top of his wire-rimmed glasses.

His body may be out of gas, but Sanders' mind is fiery and cantankerous. In the course of our 45-minute conversation, he blasts Trump as a "phony" and a "dangerous man." He also details his long-shot paths to the nomination, which he still believes he can win; his ambitious agenda to transform the Democratic Party into a people-funded movement for the working class; the challenges of having had to run a campaign "by the seat of our pants"; and why he feels sorry for Hillary Clinton – almost.
