5 states up for Democrats and Republicans; Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Florida. Bernie looks to have an advantage in Illinois and Missouri by polling while he's completely evaporated Hillary's lead in Ohio. Not to mention I've been hearing reports about Hillary voters switching to republican to vote for Kasich. In North Carolina don't be surprised if you see an upset, North Carolina broke records for early ballots and looks to have record breaking turnout. North Carolina is also an open primary so that means the independents Bernie has been doing so well with. So, despite the polls, I just feel like North Carolina is a toss-up. Florida looks to be safely in Clinton's hands, the only quest is MOV because Florida is one of the biggest states delegate wise for Dems.

For republicans, Trump has big leads everywhere including Rubio's home state, the only question for them is Ohio, and if Cruz can deny Trump enough delegates so they can get to a brokered convention. So, what do you guys think?

Rubio is in for a rough night. Should have quit by now and endorsed Cruz. If Trump gets the nomination, history will remember Kasich and Rubio for being the reason.

If Bernie wins 3 today, and Hillary wins Florida and North Carolina, the election will become VERY close between the two. I'd love to see Bernie win 4, or even upset Florida and win that. I pray to god Trump loses something.

@onlythepie - How? Hillary still has a 500 superdelegate lead. Bernie can only win if he does good today and then upsets Hillary in her home state of NY.

Hillary had a large superdelegate lead in 2008 too, but once Obama got the majority of pledged votes, they all shifted to him. The Super-delegates are less relevant than the media would have you believe.

Don't count superdelegates as a lead, cause they'll never vote for hillary if bernie wins the pledged delegates, or it would be the end of the democratic chances in november. She's just ahead by 221 pledged delegates, and all of the south strong pro-clinton states have gone already. After today there won't be any south state at-all left to vote in the primaries.

If they were elected with their positions, they're not betraying their constituents... None should have a blind allegiance for it's party.

I'll quote Liberman for that: « I'm a loyal Democrat but I have loyalties that are greater than those to my party, and that's my loyalty to my state and my country »

In 2006 many democrat officials campaigned against him in the democratic primaries for the senate because of his positions "too much centrists" and pro-Bush. He lost the primaries, run as an independent and got reelected senator against the democratic and republican nominees.

After today there won't be any south state at-all left to vote in the primaries.

I honestly don't see Bernie beating her in NY, NJ, California, New Mexico, or really any other state with high minority populations. If Bernie can't consolidate major support with non-white and non-college voters, I don't see him outpacing her in delegates. The math just won't add up.

Nah, it's a name for people who fold on every issue and allow the other party to step over them while betraying their constituents.

+1. Take Paul Ryan for example. Calls himself a fiscal conservative and budgetary "hawk", yet still gets moderate Republicans and Democrats to pass a $1.8 trillion Omnibus Bill.

Or take Senator Kelly Ayotte for example. Ran as a tea party conservative, goes to the Senate, and becomes a moderate Republican over night.

If they were elected with their positions, they're not betraying their constituents... None should have a blind allegiance for it's party.

No that's not what we mean. Look at Marco Rubio. When he entered the Senate he was regularly put in the same sentence as Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in terms of their conservative credentials. He hasn't even finished 1 term in the Senate and now he's called an establishment republican. You wanna know why? Because he is an establishment Republican, but he only became one after joining the Senate.

Not really. He would be much more of a DINO then a RINO really.

Kasich only does well in open primaries. An open primary is where independents and democrats can vote for a Republican and vice versa. Its curious isn't why Kasich has so much appeal to moderate Democrats isn't it? Even Kasich said he should be running as a Democrat. The man seems like a nice guy, but he's not a Conservative.

Kasich is the only republican who has good chances of winning november. In polls, Trump loses hard to Hillary and Bernie, Cruz is tied to Hillary, and lose to Bernie, and Rubio won't be nominated.

Plus, Bernie doesn't do bad with latinos, just with black voters, and I think that's changing too as people start to know Clinton's real record with minorities.

Rubio won't be nominated.

And you think Kasich will?

The only person who stands a chance of beating Trump 1v1 is Cruz and everyone knows it. The establishment is just too scared that Cruz will end the corruption of the Republican Party, which has essentially been a puppet of mega donors like Adelson, Koch Bros, and Wall Street for the last 2 decades.

I think that's changing too as people start to know Clinton's real record with minorities.

I don't understand why Blacks love the Clintons. I can't name a single thing either Mr. or Mrs. Clinton have done to help African Americans. In fact, it was Mr. Clinton who signed the mandatory minimum sentencing laws into effect that caused mass incarceration.

Trump's got NC, Florida, Missouri. Trump's probably going to win Illinois, but it could swing Cruz. Now, the real question is Ohio. The last polling showed Trump barely winning in Ohio, and given recent events such as the endorsement of Ben Carson and Trump's rally that helped Trump - we could see something big in Ohio. If Trump wipes every state, you can't hold him back. He'll have it, no doubt.

And you think Kasich will?

The only person who stands a chance of beating Trump 1v1 is Cruz and everyone knows it. The establishment is just too scared that Cruz will end the corruption of the Republican Party, which has essentially been a puppet of mega donors like Adelson, Koch Bros, and Wall Street for the last 2 decades.


Weird, I don't see any super PACs spending tens of millions of dollars attacking Cruz. I believe it's Trump that's getting attacked, in that regard. Cruz has raised almost $100m from super PACs, they're expecting something from him and it's not to end corruption. On the other hand, Trump knows how to end corruption since he's a rich businessman who knows exactly how to buy politicians. He's done it before, and nobody can control him.

I don't understand why blacks love the Clintons

While I seriously hate Hillary, I've heard from my friends why they love the Clintons. Essentially Bill/Hillary stood by the black community at it's worst, he went to events and you know Bill was a very lovable president and would go to poor communities among other things. You know, when the drug war was at strong and blacks were getting arrested over marijuana - that's when Bill stepped in, not only calling out the hypocrisy of the system but pardoning hundreds of non-violent people. He was simply that guy who never felt awkward around black people, who went out of his way in several cases without real benefit and still does to this day. Now, we could argue about Hillary but I think it's fair to say Bill is an amazing president who was able to do many things without making it look like sheer pandering. It just happened naturally.

Or as my friend likes to call him "The First Black President"

He probably can't, but furthermore, won't. I mean, Obama had one job: to shut down Guantánamo...and he's tried for 8 years. See how far he got with a more insignificant task that won't really affect the big drawing. Now try that with corruption.
