Sanders has been on quite a roll recently. If he wins by a reasonable margin tomorrow maybe he can give Clinton a run for her money in New York.

Paul Ryan is looking more and more like the GOP nominee.

It seems like the extremist GOP are just a bunch of thugs who will quite comfortably screw over the voters, delegates, whoever they can, whatever, so they can pillage the US treasury and roll back the clock. The Panama Papers will have nothing on these hoods if they win the presidency.

Sanders if he gets the chance needs to pick Warren as his VP nominee.

The good news for Sanders is that unless something funky happens, a double-digit victory looks likely for him. That would be meaningful — a possible sign that he’s picked up strength. The question is whether he can get to the 16-percentage-point margin we think he needs to be on pace to catch Clinton in the pledged-delegate count. That may be a tougher hill to climb.

Donald J. Trump withstood the onslaught of the establishment yet again. Lyin’ Ted Cruz had the Governor of Wisconsin, many conservative talk radio show hosts, and the entire party apparatus behind him. Not only was he propelled by the anti-Trump Super PAC’s spending countless millions of dollars on false advertising against Mr. Trump, but he was coordinating `with his own Super PAC’s (which is illegal) who totally control him. Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet— he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump. We have total confidence that Mr. Trump will go on to win in New York, where he holds a substantial lead in all the polls, and beyond. Mr. Trump is the only candidate who can secure the delegates needed to win the Republican nomination and ultimately defeat Hillary Clinton, or whomever is the Democratic nominee, in order to Make America Great Again.

After Bernie Sanders takes Wisconsin, Hillary Clinton “no longer guaranteed a win in her home state” of New York

John Heilemann said Clinton will spend next two weeks explaining "why she can't put away" a 74-year-old socialist

David Axelrod, who served as a top adviser to President Barack Obama, warned Clinton on CNN against portraying Sanders’ young supporters as “dupes” instead of taking a hard look at why they’re attracted to the Vermont senator. 

Axelrod said that it is understandable Clinton feels frustrated because the Sanders campaign keeps hitting her, but he cautioned Clinton against being dismissive of Sanders’ appeal to young voters.

“One thing I would stay away from, I would stay away from the insinuation that these young people who are inspired by Bernie Sanders are dupes and they are being fed misinformation and that is why they are enthusiastic about Bernie Sanders,” Axelrod said.

Wang wrote that Democrat primary polls are accurate so I thought I would check out the most recent state Wisconsin to have a primary:

Sanders won by 14% and yet polling forecast he would win by only 3%.

A double digit difference is not accurate in my books.
