13. And a Republican can win in NY.

There are some deluded progressive politicians who think one of them will win it - but NY really is not as progressive as they think. It is a state the relies heavily on business, with a city that is the business capital of the world. It is a state that like any big state can have alot of problems with crime, homelessness etc that many voters don't always agree with progressives on. In the chaos a Repub can win. NY had a fairly popular Republican gov in Pataki for years, and NYC had Repub mayors (Giuliani, Bloomberg) for 20 years straight. So Republicans have proven they know how to capitalize on NY Dem infighting.
