This Tuesday will be the Wisconsin Primary, and it looks like Cruz and Sanders are going to win going away. While this will be a set-back for both Clinton and Trump, they both face larger issues. For Trump, this looming loss will likely mean that he won’t get to a majority of delegates to seal the deal on the first ballot in Cleveland. It would take divine intervention for him to win on a second or subsequent ballot.
For Clinton, this will mean that the delegate count will be close to neck and neck discounting the Democrat Super Delegates, who can change their support at any time. Even worse, the FBI investigation into her personal email server and the national security issues that entails should be wrapped up by the end of the month. If the FBI issues a referral to the DOJ all bets are off.
Finally, some guy named John Kasich is still in the Republican race, even though he has no mathematical chance of winning the nomination, and can not even be nominated on the RNC convention floor under current rules, or even the rules from 2008. We’ll deal with Kasich first. At this point his presence only serves to stop Cruz, not Trump

40B is the rule that states that a candidate must have a majority of delegates from 8 states in order to even be nominated on the Convention floor. This was changed from simply winning a plurality of delegates in 5 states in 2012 after it was discovered that the IA delegation had been taken over by Paul supporters even though Santorum and Romney virtually tied for first place in IA. (Santorum eventually won with mere dozens of votes to spare two weeks after caucus night.)
There is no way at this point that Kasich can meet either the 2008 or 2012 standard to even be nominated at the Convention. You gotta wonder what the heck is he doing by continuing in the race. At this point he is merely blocking downfield for Trump. A vote for Kasich is a vote for Trump.
If you really want to know what is going on with Trump supporters, and why no amount of discussion will help them to acknowledge certain (any?) facts and issues with his candidacy, read this piece. It’s a cult! It’s mass hypnotization! It’s seduction! Read this, seriously!
And Annie is a big Trump supporter!
Why There Will Be No Trump Landslide in November. If he is nominated, the landslide will be all Democrat. Here’s another reason:
Trump is the Titanic. Ted Cruz is the Lifeboat.
Trump apologists swarmed to Lewandowski’s defense.
The latest two polls returned similar results. We’ll know next Tuesday
I’m not a bad person. I’m just doing my thing – I’m, you know, running, I want to do something that’s good. It’s not an easy thing to do. I had a nice life until I did this, you know. This is a very difficult thing to do.
It’s now 12 days later, and this insulting re-tweet is still up. It would require an apology if he took it down, wouldn’t it?
As a vote for Kasich is a vote for Trump, a vote for Trump is a vote for Clinton, Sanders or the eventual Democrat nominee. Trump will have a landslide for the Dems to look forward to in the general this fall.
Can’t blame the CBO, we know who to blame.
Ryan deserves to defend his seat at the very least.
“I’m sure if she is a lesbian it’s not fun,” Miller says frankly. When she was asked … where she heard Hillary Clinton was a lesbian, she responded, “Bill told me!”
things are rapidly winding up.
I like Zero Hedge, yet this is strictly for your consideration. Several of the links point to the Russian Times.
It’s no secret that Hillary, Obama and Sanders all consider anyone who believe that the Constitution should be followed as the larger threat.
