NATIONAL POLITICS AGAIN





The sad fact that finally in the important Wisconsin primaries there has been some degree of rationalization by the voters. Not that the winners in each party’s race are candidates that I am happy to vote for, but in many ways they could be better alternatives than the present leaders.



Sanders’ victory will undoubtedly not affect the ultimate outcome since he is so far behind especially due to the dedicated super delegates. That he will need overwhelming victories in the remaining states including New York (on the 19th), California and even New Jersey to collect enough delegates in each state to give him a chance in preventing Hillary from going to the convention with the Nomination sewed up. His margin of victory in Wisconsin is too small according to early predictions



Cruz’s margin over Trump is not only significantly large but he also has a true majority in that state where the delegates are committed from the entire state (18) and the rest  according to the winners in the various congressional districts.
It is n ow conceivable that Trump will not have the numbers to get the nomination on the 1st ballot. If so then the fun will begin.

    But Bernie's percent in the Dem Primary was about the same as Cruz's in the GOP!
