Yes, Sanders may win the California primary on Tuesday, but remember: the delegates are given out proportionally. He doesn’t get them all. This is not the electoral college.
To win the nomination, he’s going to need at least 66% of all the remaining delegates in all of the races that are happening on Tuesday.
That’s not going to happen.
Hillary only needs 256 delegates to win the nomination and that doesn’t include superdelegates. There are 763 pledged delegates to be chosen by Tuesday, and so Clinton can win the nomination even if she only gets one out of every three.
Still, I want Bernie to remain in, as was his plan all along, to influence the platform and use his power to make other deals with the eventual nominee.
Someone else did the exact same thing eight years ago. Let’s see, who was that? Oh yes — Hillary Clinton.
Oh cool! So Bernie should be dropping out in a couple of days then? Because Hillary dropped out June 7th and endorsed Barack.

No, she suspended her campaign, kept her delegates, made deals (probably to become Secretary of State), went to the convention, and then asked her delegates to support Obama.
So he’ll suspend his campaign Tuesday? Because that works for me. 🙂
