5. Yup, and just to put to bed this argument that the Sander's campaign is....

going to roll into the convention with less pledged delegates and behind in the popular vote and take the nomination, let me say this..
1) DNC officials and elected democrats are not going to do that based off of a few polls versus Trump for an outsider.
2) As a black voter, assuming Sander's margins with African Americans stays the same, if the democratic party were to try to overrule the decisive decision by black voters to support Clinton over Sanders, there will be hell to pay. Every Black Media outlet, the CBC, and even Obama will voice their objections and that fantasy will be shut down quickly once Sanders tries it. All it takes is for John Lewis, James Clyburn, Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, or anyone else to go on national television and point out that this would silence an overwhelming majority of black voters on the basis of a few polls and every DNC member will fall in line behind Clinton.
