39. Richard Nixon won by a landslide in 1972. Fourth largest margin of victory in

US history with 18 million more votes than McGovern (roughly closer to 30 million with today's population)

Sometimes the popular vote margin doesn't mean as much as people think - particularly when Hillary's margin ignores the larger populations represented by caucuses.

This was supposed to be a coronation cakewalk for Hillary. Here we are in June and it's looking like she won't be able to put it away until the convention - if she's not indicted.

Sanders started out a year ago about 50-60 pts behind. His trajectory has been upward since the start. He's running neck and neck with her. Have you ever asked yourself why?

And she's allowed Trump to close the gap. Why is that? How come she can't beat Trump handily like Sanders?

But we agree on one thing: this email thing is not going away. Lots more to come on that and not much of it good for her poll numbers.
