David Waldman and KITM bring us the Trump, Clinton, and Sanders news along with a lot more that everyone else should be talking about, but they just never get around to telling you.
Will Obama join with the lack of a majority of votes, delegates and super delegates to stop Bernie Sanders?
Greg Dworkin rounds up the news and polls: Donald Trump assesses the damage, Bernie Sanders assesses his campaign, and Greg’s son, a Bernie voter, assesses the future for Sanders’ supporters. Democrats are unifying quicker and better than Republicans. The trend is favoring Clinton and increasing, especially for other Democrats. Are Hillary supporters being cowed into silence? There is no Trump Bump. Trump isn’t going to change, and some are fine with that.
David Nir, Political Director of Daily Kos, and longtime friend of the show, joins us today to get a handle on down ticket races. The senate race in California is Democrat vs Democrat, woman vs. woman, win-win. Democrats avoid disaster and are now poised to hold an important California house seat.
David continues to follow the money as the Koch Brothers inflitrate obscure but important outposts protecting our way of life, and takes another look at the dealings of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University.
