After almost two years of campaigning, a picture of the general presidential election is finally coming into focus.
Donald Trump swept the five Republican primaries in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. Out of those same five states, Clinton lost only Rhode Island.
Clinton won Connecticut by a slim 52 percent to 47 percent margin over Sanders. Donald Trump won Connecticut 58 percent to Kasich's 28.5 percent and Cruz's 12 percent.
The Public Policy Poll that found Bernie Sanders had come within two points of Clinton’s lead in Connecticut was more accurate than earlier state polls, and the polls that predicted ringing Trump victories in every state were dead on. According to FiveThirtyEight, Clinton gained 50 delegates on Saturday, giving her a pledged delegate lead over Sanders of 1,622 to 1,282. Trump leads the Republican pack with 950 delegates to Cruz’s 560 after the frontrunner grabbed 110 out of 118 delegates Tuesday.
Chaos at UConn
Sanders beat Clinton handily in Mansfield, 67 percent to 32.5 percent, feasting off of a sizable University of Connecticut voting bloc and the surrounding rural area.
Trump won Mansfield narrowly, 44 percent to Kasich’s 38 percent and Cruz’s 14 percent.
