Clinton, Sanders in dead heat for California

“Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are in a virtual tie two weeks ahead of the primary election in California, with Sanders eliminating the modest advantage she held two months ago, according to a new statewide poll released late Wednesday,” the Sacramento Bee is reporting.

  1. Seems like a familiar pattern. Corporate media declares Clinton the nominee and wonders why Sanders does not fold his tents and go away quietly like a defeated army – and get on with the process of anointing Clinton as POTUS. Polls show Clinton 20 to 30 points ahead – then a week before the election they close to a virtual tie. Meanwhile – TNN is raking in the bucks with 24/7 Trump coverage. If Sanders pulls out a victory in California – TNN will break away from Trump for about 30 minutes of punditry all asking “What does Bernie Want” And then they will flip back to Trump coverage
