The New York Primary Suspended Bernie Sanders’s Campaign – He Doesn’t Know it Yet

Bernie Sanders’s loss in New York brought the already remote possibility of victory to an end.

He now would need 72 percent of the remaining delegates, and he’d be lucky given the demographics of the upcoming states and the Democratic proportional rule to get 50 percent of the remaining delegates.

Arguably, he will continue to represent the leftist cause and his liberal constituents in Philadelphia, but he will not be the nominee, and if he doesn’t tone down the attack on Hillary Clinton’s credibility, he will be vulnerable to the charge of further damaging the Democratic ticket in November and purposely harming the first serious woman nominee.
