The New York Times is reporting that Bernie Sanders and his campaign are unworried about the prospect of hurting Hillary Clinton’s chances in November and intend to stay aggressive in the race against her until the finish.
Andrew Prokop writes in Vox that he doesn’t believe Sanders is out to destroy the Democratic Party and that he will strongly support Clinton once he’s mathematically eliminated.
For those who think Trump doesn’t have much of a chance in November, there’s a new Fox News poll out that shows Trump beating Clinton by three points and losing to Sanders by only four. Yes, it’s six months out, and, yes, this is just one poll, but Trump’s numbers have jumped significantly since the last Fox poll. Via The Washington Post.
