Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton pulled a near clean sweep in yesterday's five primaries. Are they practically guaranteed to get nominated at this point? Is there any chance for Cruz or Sanders to beat their respective opponents?

Trump vs. Hillary is the one outcome I've been dreading most this whole election, but it looks like it's about to happen.

I don't think any responsible American could vote hillary for the shot she's done. At least trump has a bad rep as a private person, we have yet to see him in public office.

Seriously, Hilary couldn't even give her hubby a quicky now and then how the hell is she supposed to run a country. Ntm she couldn't even handle being secretary of state.

In reality though, what is the worst that could happen? I say chances are one of them gets elected. If Hillary is elected, it will probably seem like another 4 years of Obama, which although it's not great, it's not awful. If Trump is elected, it will be very difficult to get any of his extreme plans passed through Congress.

Hmmm, I think it's not over yet. Bernie might still beat Hillary, and Cruz can stop Trump. We'll need to see what happens in the next states, a lot of delegates haven't been put into vote yet. With few candidates and a better spread of their ideas, the scenario can change.

Don't be so sure the GOP won't try a coup to oust Donald on the Convention Floor. They know its political suicide, but the GOP establishment doesn't care. RNC and big money donors are hosting a rules conference to potentially change some of the rules for a contested convention. Cleveland is spending $50 million in riot gear for the convention. And if Kasich and Cruz get enough delegates, then Trump might not get a majority.

For the Democratic side its over. Just raise your right hand now and swear fealty to Killary Klinton.

I'm gonna sound overly optimistic, but I think Bernie still has a good chance to defeat Hillary. She's only got one or two states left that she should win, and if Bernie wins California and the Pacific, he's right back tied up. Hillary only has New York and one or two others at most the way it's looking.

The Donald on the other hand...we're all dead.

Good for you guys. All the wealth is moving to Far East Asia. Obama was supposed to turn America's economic and military focus to East Asia with the Asia Pivot, but that was a hopeless failure since ISIS came onto the scene.

Why are you so good at misrepresentation. Did I say "out of nowhere"? I was simply referring to the fact that the dissolution of Syria-Iraq and the entrance of ISIS onto the world stage as a credible and important global security threat caused the Obama administration to essentially give up its Asia Pivot plan.

nah,

Sanders is a pipe dream on the democrat side. it's never going to happen. no matter what happens, there are still too many democrats who understand how money works.

Cruz has a far better shot at unseating Trump than Sanders does Clinton, but it's still not likely to happen. Trump has basically reached critical mass at this point. And the Republicans are not going to try any convention heroics to unseat Trump either mainly because the Republicans are by and large cowards.

The race will be between Clinton and Trump. I could not in good conscience vote for either of them, so I would have to vote 3rd party. I'm quite certain Clinton comes out on top and I believe that would probably be for the best because at least the Republicans will have the good sense to fight her. I would be worried that if Trump got in, the Republicans might go along with him just because he was one of their own.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Trump's now at 96% of his delegate targets. This means that:

- if Kasich stays in the race, and
- if Kasich pulls substantially more voters from Trump than from Cruz, and
- if Trump's not able to get half of all delegates

OR

- if Kasich drops from the race, and
- if Kasich's voters migrate to Cruz substantially moreso than they do to Trump, and
- if Cruz gets a majority of all delegates

There's going to be a contested convention. Kasich likely won't come out on top here, but Cruz has a shot (right now he's the clear leader in endorsements- this lead will only substantially increase now that Rubio's gone) at getting the nomination instead of Trump as long as he's either got more momentum going forward or is just very close to 50% (maybe even closer to it than Trump, although that's unlikely) the party can pull this trick without fragmenting itself or having to worry about a third-party Trump bid.

But based on betting markets, a Trump presidency is about twice as likely as any other nominee winning- so this scenario isn't likely to happen.

what confuses me is why Clinton is running away with the African-American vote.. Especially considering Obama got 91% of their votes when running against her.
