The major parties’ establishments are desperate to control the outcome of caucus and primary results. Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are fighting this hard.
Sanders made “huuuuge” gains with his wins on March 26. He has a chance for a similar result in the coming Oregon, New York and Pennsylvania primaries. Add California to the mix and he still has a chance to throw the Democratic establishment a curve.
It is obvious Trump will win the Republican race in New York and Pennsylvania. The convention will be a disaster for the GOP. If it is a brokered convention, the result will anger at least a third of Republicans. The safest thing for them to do is accept Trump.
If Hillary Clinton is the choice of the Democratic convention, there is a chance Sanders will run as an independent. If so, it will be a much larger contest. Would Sanders’ third-party run be a disaster for Clinton? What if Ted Cruz were to mount an independent run? Complete disaster. It will become the angriest race for president ever.
Never miss a local story.
Have you ever seen such a revolt against establishment politics in both parties? America has a problem, but it could be the nation’s salvation. The American voter is angry at the status quo.
