Democratic Pollster Schoen: Hillary May Not Be Nominee

With the California primary just days away, Democratic pollster Doug Schoen writes in The Wall Street Journal that the party’s struggling front-runner Hillary Clinton could be denied the nomination if Bernie Sanders wins the Golden State race on June 7.

According to a recent PPIC poll Clinton still leads the Vermont Senator by 2 percent, however Schoen notes that even a narrow win would give Sanders a significant boost in pledged delegates — 250 or more.

And, in recent open primaries, Schoen backs his statement by noting that Sanders has a tendency to “underperform in pre-election surveys and over-perform on primary and caucus days, thanks to the participation of new registrants and young voters.”
