Could Sanders Beat Hillary in the CA Primary?

The difference falls within the margin of error for the poll.

The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist poll shows a mere 2% spread between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in the California Presidential Primary.

Hillary Clinton garners 49% of the vote while Sanders gets 47%. The difference falls within the margin of error for the poll.

Sanders is depending on a victory in California on June 7 to keep his slim hopes for the Democratic nomination alive. California offers 475 pledged delegates, the biggest haul of any state.

Clinton can secure enough delegates for the nomination next week even without winning California, thanks to the superdelegates who have already pledged to support her.

If Sanders were to win California, he could make a persuasive case that the superdelegates should support him at the Democrat National Convention.

The state awards its delegates proportionally, so a close race won't change the overall delegate math.

One bit of good news for Hillary is that she leads the race with early voters, 58% to 41%.

Last week, California's Governor Jerry Brown endorse Hillary saying, she is "the only path forward" to defeat Donald Trump.

The Freedom Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Therefore we do not endorse political candidates either in primary or general elections. However, as defenders of America’s social contract, we insist that the rules laid down by both parties at the outset of campaigns be respected, and that the results be decided by free elections. We will oppose any attempt to rig the system and deny voters of either party their constitutional right to elect candidates of their choice.
