Today we see five states hold the presidential primaries, the so-called "Acela Primary" as most of the states up for grabs fall along Amtrak’s Acela train line between Washington, D.C., and Connecticut, and with Hillary comfortable, and Trump looking for a sweep as he surges on the back of yet another failed "stop-trump" attempt, there should be no real surprises when polls close this evening.
One thing to keep an eye on is how Trump performs in Pennsylvania, which as we noted earlier, will be an indication of how well his campaign's ground game is. He will need to be able to sway delegates his way if necessary during the convention, and this could be an early indicator for how well he'll be able to do that. Also on the topic of Trump, the question is not if he will win tonight's 5 states but whether he will be able to get above 50% of the vote in them (recent polls suggest it may be a stretch).
Is the Kasich-Cruz alliance doomed? ~ link ~
The eleventh-hour bid by Ted Cruz and John Kasich to deny Donald Trump the Republican nomination by dividing upcoming contests is bold -- but likely doomed.
“What matters for the general election is who can win swing states and ensure high voter turnout and enthusiasm in solidly blue states…”
Perhaps even more important is that Hillary has such high negatives, and is plagued by so many scandals, that Trump’s attacks will annihilate her … at least if she hasn’t gone to prison by the time next fall rolls around.
