Sanders takes WV; Trump sweeps WV, NE primaries

By George Miller

Trump continued his victorious run to the GOP convention on Tuesday, 5-10-16, with overwhelming wins in West Virginia and Nebraska. That’s not as hard when all 16 competitors have quit or suspended their campaigns. In spite of that, Cruz still garnered 18% of the vote in Nebraska, to Kasich’s 11%, overwhelmed by Trump’s 61%, which gave him all the delegates. In WV, it was 77% trump, 9% Cruz and 7% Kasich, again sweeping all delegates.

Insurgent Bernie Sanders is proving to be  a tough, persistent opponent. But, he is greatly outmatched in delegates, especially Superdelegates, by Hillary Clinton, who’s on track to take the nomination, unless she’s indicted or suffers a health crisis. He won 51 to 36%. Not sure who took the other votes.

Even if he’s not winning in delegates, Sanders is winning in ideas, forcing the debate to the left and winning the hearts of America’s younger people. Clinton is perceived to have more experience and more likely to continue the Obama agenda.

    Doesn’t Wilkinson have a direct connection with Clinton as well as Mills?

    Does anyone really believe that after each interview with the FBI and Mills, there isn’t a report given to Clinton? If so, no wonder Clinton is always ready to be interviewed; she has inside information.
