There are two races going on right now in the presidential race. One is for voters, and the other is for delegates. Donald Trump needs about 390 more delegates to clinch the nomination. Right now, he has almost 850, while Ted Cruz has 560, and John Kasich has 150. Republicans need 1,237 delegates to win their party's nomination. Hillary Clinton is leading for the Democrats, with 1,930 delegates. Bernie Sanders is trailing, with nearly 1,200. Democratic candidates need 2,383 delegates.
Meanwhile, Clinton is vigorously campaigning on the East Coast, as voters go to the polls in five states next Tuesday. But while the Democratic frontrunner often criticizes Sanders for his record on guns, she's currently taking a new, softer approach on her opponent. Clinton urged, at a round table meeting on gun control, "Please, please, make comprehensive gun safety reform at the top of your list, and make sure that you are voting for people who share that commitment."
During the meeting, Clinton only mentioned Sanders once, which signals a switch from her direct attacks on him ahead of the New York primary. Sanders, on the other hand, continued his standard "compare and contrast" style at 3 rallies today. He said, "I have opposed all of these trade agreements. Secretary Clinton supported virtually all of them - that is a major difference between us."
Also attacking Clinton, and a group of others, is Donald Trump, who called out everyone except for Sanders. Yesterday, Trump told a crowd they can choose between himself, "Lyin' Ted," and "Crooked Hillary." He added that Cruz and Kasich have no path to victory. But today-- a change in tone. Trump advisers met with top Republican officials, trying to convince them Trump is ready to work with the Republican Party and "evolve" past the divisive primary and focus on the general election.
