A Sanders win in California would turbocharge the mounting Democratic unease about her viability.

There is now more than a theoretical chance that Hillary Clinton may not be the Democratic nominee for president.

As a Republican, I want Hillary R Clinton to be the nominee of the Democrat Party.

That doesn't surprise me, considering the fact she was the weakest of the three Democrats running that they could have chosen.

All three Candidates are old and senile, even Biden, even Johnson.

We could use some young blood like O'Malley, a good athlete.

Let's get some younger people to run in 2000.

No matter how bad Sanders beats Clinton in California she will still have more regular Delegates and Superdelegates and the clinch and I doubt many of those Superdelegates are going to drop Clinton for the Socialist Sanders.

Because of how things have played out, it would take some Super Delegates switching to Sanders for this to be plausible. Hillary is within 200 delegates of the required number, 2312 of 2383 (or something along those lines.) Where people are coming up with stories like this are the assumptions of Sander sweeping the remaining contests and taking damn near all of the remaining delegates. He is at 1545. With 908 still available he would need to take 838 of them. About 93% of them. I do not see it happening meaning just to contest the convention some of the already committed Super Delegates to Hillary would have to revolt. And I do not see that happening either, establishment Democrats seem determined to keep Sanders from the nomination.

Sanders would have to win by 25 % or more to have even a remote chance of it mattering, and he is not going to win by anything like that margin. Even then, it would require a mass movement of unpledged delegates changing who they support to the person who got far fewer votes overall, which is not likely. The reality is that the primary will probably be over hours before California polls even close, as Clinton will probably get enough delegates from New Jersey to seal the deal.

I realize that right now is not a good time for your boy Trump, but all these anti-Clinton threads based on hilariously bad opinion pieces is really seeming like a ploy of desperation for you. Maybe you should, I dunno, support Trump instead of attacking Clinton.

Wrong. Cali has 475 delegates up for grabs, excluding superdelegates. So, actually, if he were to win Cali by a landslide he would overtake her lead.

Oh, and Bernie Sanders is not a Socialist. He is a Democratic Socialist. Two different things.

Problem is he is currently trailing in California polling. Now he may still win, but any delegate advantage would be very small.

Using an opinion/commentary article from the WSJ.... seems far more Rabid Right wishful thinking than anything else.

Kinda like all the PUBs spinning a 'take-over', convention fight, elite PUBs 'sneaking in' a different candidate...

fantasy and foolishness... is there a poll or any real metric to claim Clinton won't win California? Every one i've seen has Hillary out in front... :peace
