Yes, Trump is getting outmaneuvered in the state-level delegate selection processes. But to actually band the non-Trump delegates together to thwart the frontrunner will require an enormous amount of political courage and intestinal fortitude … consider that Republicans are in this difficult position precisely because of their years of cowardliness.”
“…if the nation was falling in love with either candidate, millions more voters would be backing them in the primaries. The vast majority of Sanders’ wins … have been in low-turnout caucus states. Kasich hasn’t won anything outside of his native Ohio.”
“[Sanders] needs to start gaining the trust of anyone older than 30. Sanders must swiftly persuade a large number of skeptical voters who are not part of his core of youthful enthusiasts, voters who are nonwhite, or middle-aged, or even his own age and older.”
The air-tight case is here.
“Hillary Clinton headed into the March 15 primaries with her momentum seemingly on the wane … Yet she swept all five contests … did anything happen late in the race that might have helped her? The one event that dominated the news in the final days before Super Tuesday II was the shutdown of Donald Trump’s Chicago rally…“
Politico Magazine asked me to map out how Trump would beat Hillary, and asked conservative Matt Latimer to analyze how Hillary would beat Trump. As you can see, I see Trump’s challenge to be exceptionally daunting…
“There is only one path for conservatives in a twenty-first-century America: Pivot toward America’s diverse center. Close down the Republican Party as it is currently constructed. Re-open at a new location, far away from the cesspools of hate.”
Should we treat support of the 1994 crime bill as evidence that neither candidate has the interests of African-Americans at heart, and that the Democrats are a hopeless vessel for those demanding racial equality? Context matters, as do details.
Relying on a message of pragmatism and experience had fallen flat. So Hillary Clinton turned to Ta-Nehisi Coates.
If he can keep Clinton under about 60 percent in most areas, he will keep scooping up delegates. As long as his base sticks with him, and maintains his ability to collect delegates, he will have no incentive to drop out. Why? Because if you have delegates, you can make demands.
