Default So yeah... Trump.

Technically, Cruz has "suspended his campaign." But what could that possibly even mean? There's no point in any future primaries if he's suspending, but I'm not clear if that means people can't still vote for him in their own upcoming primaries.

November is going to be interesting.

Ted Cruz is out.

Kasich is out too. There is some doubt whether hillary can win or not. Most polls have Sanders like 14 points over trump, clinton is at most 7 points over, but that seems to be falling in recent ones.

I voted for Hillary in the primaries, but that doesn't really count.

A few things I've noticed going on here, that some of you may or may not agree with.

1) Bernie is in this for messaging now. I wouldn't doubt that a handful of voters for past couple states are protest voters. He also has enough money to make it last through the convention. That's his choice, even though he doesn't have much of a path towards any type of actual nomination. Decide for yourself if this hurts or helps the democratic party.

2) Sanders and Trump are simply opposite party members, but running under very similar philosophies towards Washington. I can see various Bernie supporters jumping over to Trump as the general evolves, and the tone of the election changes.

3) Bernie is not close to center, which is where he needs to be if he's going to be electable. The perception of him is generally way out there and that continues to be a problem for him.

4) Trump appears to be doing more to try and unite the republican party than Hillary actually is doing with hers.

5) Read your latest developments on the ongoing HRC investigations. If for some crazy, unfathomable reason she drops due to an indictment, it would be extremely favorable for Trump and his quest for the oval office.

1) He needs to concede

2) WTF are you smoking? Oh that's right, weed is legal there now

3) Irrelevant, he's not the nominee

4) Hers is not a raging dumpster fire, there's not such a huge rift to unite

5) Never gonna happen

If Hillary were to be indicted the nomination would go to Bernie and he polls more favorably than she does against "The Donald"

Bottom Line the way things look we are screwed either way.

Democrats are split, it seems. I don't see Hilary having the personality to recover the Bernie voters should she win the nomination, and vice versa if Bernie wins the nomination. The question is would these people suck it up enough to vote for the other to prevent Trump? From the opinion pieces of I've seen - no.

The trash I've read coming from the Bernie/Hilary camp against each other is the kind of shit you read about Republics throwing at Democrats. There is vicious animosity between the two camps. I'm sure for starters, Bernie supports aren't going to concede after essentially being called rape apologists or misogynists and Pro-Hilary people aren't going to rally under the "she's a cunt" flag. EDIT: The left media did a fantastic job of giving Trump a platform and turning the Bernie/Hilary supporters against each other.

As for Trump, he's basically got the majority of white votes in middle America/heterosexual/Christian group minus the "I'm sorry I'm white, I'm sorry I'm male" privileged camp. Plus, all the crap that guy says don't matter jack to them.

My post was just in jest, but the sad part is I see it being a difficult fight for either Bernie/Hilary against The Donald. Either way, we're fucked.
