The math isn’t there and a lot of pundits are saying this is over, and yet Bernie Sanders affirmed on CBS this morning that it’s not “impossible.”
Sanders acknowledged it’s an “uphill fight” as John Dickerson told him it is mathematically impossible for him to win now. Sanders said it’s still possible he wins the majority of pledged delegates, but if not his campaign is ready to make their case to superdelegates.
During the interview Sanders repeatedly makes the case that polls show he is in a stronger position to beat Donald Trump than is Hillary Clinton, but the facts are that the only reason that appears true right now is because the Republicans have mostly left him alone.
Once the GOP really ramps things up Sanders will find his poll numbers dropping like a lead balloon.
Of course the Republicans will never get that chance, because Bernie Sanders simply does NOT have a path to victory.
Update: Sanders is also predicting that there will be a contested convention:
In a news conference from Washington, D.C., on Sunday, the Vermont senator urged superdelegates from states where he has won the majority of the vote to reconsider their support.
"It is virtually impossible for Secretary Clinton to reach the majority of convention delegates by June 14 with pledged delegates alone," he said.
"She will need superdelegates to take her over the top. The convention will be a contested contest," he said.
This can only make those who despise Hillary Clinton happy.
Democrats having their act together and acting like the grownups while the Republicans bicker and fight at their convention is our best strategy moving forward.
If the American voter sees infighting in both parties, it takes away much of our advantage.
