Maybe the Democratic race is a lot closer than most people realize.

Clinton: 1223 delegates

Sanders: 920 delegates

Difference: 303 delegates

Today 142 delegates will be chosen from 3 states - Washington, Hawaii & Alaska

How many delegates does Sanders need to win today?

 

NorthReport

I thought Clinton was favoured to win Hawaii but........

Tulsi Gabbard's star will be rising if Sanders wins.

I find that this page at the WaPo has very nice primary results, updated every 30 seconds.

If those numbers were reversed, I wonder how long it would stay "too early to call"

Sanders declared winner in Alaska and Washington.

And Sanders wins the Hawaii caucus by about a 70-30 margin.

Although I agree with Sanders message more than any of the other candidates, I have concerns when minorities don't appear to be supporting him.

Concerns that they're onto something, or concerns that as a bloc they might thwart the first potentially progressive President in history?

NorthReport

Neither.

Ok, but this isn't Twitter.  You can tell us what those concerns are, and use as many characters as you need.

Are you sure about this?  I haven't heard about any states in the Dem primary being WTA.

I was referring to the Republican side.

Trump and Clinton: Censoring the Unpalatable  -  by John Pilger

https://www.rt.com/op-edge/337590-trump-clinton-censoring-pilger/

"In Anglo-American scholarship, followed slavishly by the liberal media on both sides of the Atlantic, influential theorists known as 'liberal realists' have long taught that liberal imperialists - a term they never use - are the world's peace brokers and crisis managers, rather than the cause of crisis.

A virulent if familiar censorship is about to descend on the US election campaign. As the cartoon brute, Donald Trump, seems almost certain to win the Republican Party's nomination. Hillary Clinton is being ordained both as the 'women's candidate' and the champion of American liberalism in its struggle with the Evil One.

This is drivel of course. Hillary Clinton leaves a trail of blood and suffering around the world and a clear record of exploitation and greed in her own country. To say so, however, is becoming intolerable in the land of free speech.

The 2008 presidential campaign of Barack Obama should have alerted even the most dewey-eyed. As a new kind of marketing manager for the status quo, the unctuous Obama was an inspired choice..."

There is no smoking gun concerning Clinton's emails that I am aware of but it's good to see this article which is on the money.

Who'll win the New York Democratic primary?

Top Predictions

Clinton 75¢ Down 

Sanders 28¢ Up

Sanders keeps pounding away that the GOP has become a fringe party, pretty much any statement by Trump or Cruz confirms that, so it is quite unfortunate that the mainstream press has substantially reduced their coverage of him.
