Can't help but feel today is a sort of day of reckoning for Bernie and even the "Donald" considering the way establishment Repubs. are apoplectic going full bore against him.

For Bernie to have any chance at getting the Dems. nomination he needs to win today's Illinois and Ohio primaries. With the wind behind him capturing Michigan he's got a chance.

Forget the polls. They're either skewed toward Hillary or the demographic sample of those polled is either too small or isn't broad enough to truly reflect those who are actually going to vote. There was a time polls could be trusted where those polled were randomly selected from a small but wide enough demographic-polls which came within the margin of error those actually voting on election day.

Now it's a joke. Michigan proved that with Bernie supposedly 20 points behind in some polls just days leading up to the primary.

As for Trump he's stirred up the hornet's nest of neo-cons, Repub. insiders, corporate big wigs, think tank "experts" and Super PACS spending millions to derail him from winning enough delegates thus capturing the Repub. nomination making the July convention irrelevant.

The mucky-mucks are so worried some have threatened to vote for the "Hillerator" -all assuming she's got the Dems. nomination all locked up.

That in itself shows she's actually one of them an establishment insider in league with the big financial interests, neo-con warmonger as her record clearly shows and a neo-liberal that foists austerity measures on the backs of people.

From here if its Hillary and the "Donald" it'll be horror v/s horror.

And which is the lesser evil? More on that score in greater detail if it all comes down to that.
