Tuesday the gap falls below 300 delegates

Clinton has a million votes more than in 2008. 1,105 to be precise. 545,000 earned in the South and 335,000 in Illinois. This means that she gained in the rest of the US only 225,000 votes. 2.7% more votes than in 2008. And, among many reasons, the most rational is the lack of other competitors in the race for the nomination of the Democratic Party. That’s why Sanders, if he wants to win, must do more to motivate his supporters who, at the time, have proved too emotional, and often suffered the Clinton positive results. The Berners, for their part, need to understand that the worst is over and now the road is almost all downhill. Already next Tuesday, Sanders has the option of reducing the distances from Clinton than twenty delegates if he wins in Idaho and Utah, and he draws in Arizona. Should win in Arizona detachment would decrease even further, but they should be understood that the recovery will be slow but steady, and that even if Clinton win New York, they will not be discouraged again. Sanders should not delude Berners. He is to inform them of its strategy and the fact that if he wins, it will be a few delegates, the delegates that California is giving away. What’s more, according to my simulation, Bernie could even lose New York, New Jersey and Indiana with 49.9%, then reduce the gap with Clinton only 30/35 delegates from sum of Alaska, Arizona, North Dakota, Idaho, Wyoming and Nebraska. And finally win with 55% in Pennsylvania, 57% in California, Maryland, Connecticut and Wisconsin and with 65% in Washington and Oregon. My experience leads me to say that the future of Bernie strategy must take account of these numbers.
