O'Malley was never a serious contender. Sanders isn’t going to win all of the delegates from Iowa or the rest
of the caucus states or from New Hampshire or all over New England. Outside of being mainstream, one of the biggest obstacles for Sanders is that the super delegates, who overwhelmingly
favor Clinton and can contribute 30 percent of the convention votes
that a candidate needs.
Clinton’s only real opposition resides in the Justice Department
and whether the career lawyers in the Public Integrity Section
choose to pursue a case. The Justice Department on orders from the president will give her a pass.
Clinton will likely be the democrat candidate however no one can tell how the American public will accept her baggage and her transgressions especially oif the president gives her a get out of jail free card..
As to the Republicans:
Both Carson’s and Trump’s supporters, are alienated
from the GOP establishment and are hardly conventional in their
political instincts. They are far from interchangeable.
Carson’s supporters, deeply religious and highly ideological,
aren’t likely to see the retired neurosurgeon’s soft-spoken
temperament in the vain and profane Trump, who has taken to using
off-color language on the stump. Carson’s peeps aren’t Trump’s.
Conversely, a voter who finds Trump’s personality attractive and
compelling isn’t likely to feel drawn to Carson.
Jeb Bush is a Bush and will never go anywhere. The rest of the field a distraction at best.
None are likely to be nominated.
The likelihood is quite high and getting higher that the race for
the Republican nomination will come down to a face-off between two
freshman senators, both 44-year-old Cuban-Americans—Cruz turns 45
on Dec. 22, Rubio on May 28. Look for Cruz to emerge as the remainder man, consolidating the f
tea-party supporters, libertarians, and faith-based and
passionate conservatives that make up the unconventional half
of the GOP. Rubio the other half. Who would win the contest is anyone’s
guess. I think it will very close.
What a hoot. Guess the charge of racism is out this election. Still can use the old and steadfast claim of the war on women.
