There are 3 primaries running to day….
Ohio has been pushed back…
Joe Biden will increase his lead….
Bernie Sanders will probably be gasping for any delay ….
The DNC will be in the middle…
My guess is Biden will continue to move his campaign online and digitally to aimed at Trump as Sanders slips further in the media due to the virus and economy coverage…
His campaign as of yesterday was STILL gearing up ads with the money they still have….
Will state parties go ahead with more walk-in primaries?
Will they have to technically give the nomination to Biden from mail in votes?
Will there be a convention by the summer?
It’s to early…
But if Fauci doesn’t give the ‘all clear’?
The DNC should be thinking about contingency plans while Donald Trump works on proping up the economy and possibly buying another term with taxpayer money ….
Things ARE gonna be changed in a way that will probably change the way America conducts it’s political election business in the future…
It’s likely — if not certain — that tonight’s Democratic presidential primaries in Arizona, Florida and Illinois will be the last ones for the next two months.
And it’s unclear what, exactly, is going to happen today in Ohio, where the state’s governor said he wouldn’t open the state’s polling places, defying a judge who declined to postpone the state’s primary.
It all freezes into place a Democratic nominating contest — with uncertainty about when it all begins again.
And that raises questions about the state of Bernie Sanders’ campaign (given that Joe Biden’s lead is going to grow after tonight’s contests), about the Democratic convention in July (will the health landscape improve by then?), and about whether states and the federal government can institute a vote-by-mail system for November.
Already, Georgia (originally set for March 24), Louisiana (April 4) and Kentucky (May 19) have postponed their primaries to later dates, as other upcoming states are almost guaranteed to follow.
Here is the state of the Democratic race heading into tonight’s contests: Joe Biden leads Bernie Sanders by 152 pledged delegates, according to NBC News’ count.
That’s with about half of all delegates now awarded, and it will be about 60 percent done after tonight (and depending on what happens in Ohio)…
