Andy Schmookler hits the panic button - Democrats are blowing a chance to put Donald Trump away early.
And he knows who to blame.
The main reason for this lost ground is that an important segment of the Democratic Party – and by this I mean Senator Sanders and many of his followers – has failed to understand which battle it has become time to fight. Ever since the April 25 primaries, when Hillary Clinton swept highly populous states like New York and Pennsylvania, the contest for the nomination has been effectively over. Though not yet “mathematically” eliminated, for the past month Senator Sanders has had no plausible scenario to the nomination.
The trouble for Democrats - Sanders keeps winning and drawing large crowds.
People keep showing up - they haven't given up.
Perhaps Hillary Clinton isn't the answer to how to beat Trump.
