Again, here in Australia, there is still intense interest in these primaries, in the lead up to both of the conventions. As I have mentioned previously, there has never been the interest in Primaries from earlier years as there has been in this election…..TonyfromOz.
Wisconsin whacks the frontrunners. It’s a very damaging defeat for Donald Trump, who may have tipped the scales from refreshingly outrageous to unbearable. And Hillary Clinton suffers her sixth embarrassing loss in a row – and the seventh of eight contests:
But while Clinton is strangely unpopular lately, she should still win in the end:
[Sanders] is coming off of victories in Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Utah and Washington over the last two weeks, but those contests netted him just 55 delegates.
Trump should also still finish ahead in the delegate count, but he won’t have reached the threshhold. If his bubble really has burst, the Republican establishment will face a huge problem – how to replace him with someone more electable.
