Reasons Bernie Sanders Wins Big With Cruz Dropout

Reasons Bernie Sanders Wins Big With Cruz Dropout
by Seth Abramson – Wednesday, May 04, 2016 – by Huffington Post –

Here are five immediate repercussions to Ted Cruz dropping out of the Republican primary:

1. News coverage for the Democratic primary, and thus Bernie Sanders, will increase exponentially — immediately.

Without Trump in the field, all of the focus on future election nights — nine states and several territories over the next 45 days — will be on Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

2. Sanders will pick up a huge number of what would otherwise be Trump votes in states where voters are still able to register for upcoming Democratic primaries, or are able to cross over and vote in the Democratic primary due to being a registered independent.  [Read more]

Over the past few weeks, the Guyana Foundation has continued its work on various fronts to bring tangible relief to communities in need.

Trump-Clinton begins as the most lopsided race in the modern era – commentary

Trump-Clinton begins as the most lopsided race in the modern era

trumpAs long expected, Trump has effectively secured the Republican nomination tonight – can he beat Hillary?

By Harry Lambert – Independent UK  – May 03, 2016

Donald Trump is the runaway winner in tonight’s Indiana primary, as expected. Polls, and the demographics of the state, had suggested as much. As usual during this election, they’ve been proven right.

Trump is now as likely to be the Republican nominee as Hillary Clinton is to be the Democratic nominee, with both a 98 per cent favourite in the betting markets after tonight.

Less than three weeks ago Trump’s odds had fallen to 55 per cent. But should you fear – will he actually be President?
