Bernie #Sanders losing Oregon Primary to Clinton, say polls. #upset. https://t.co/NInNG1zOYmTo win the Democratic nomination, Sanders must persuade hundreds of so-called superdelegates who have pledged their support to Clinton to change their minds and vote for him instead. To have even a faint hope of pulling off that unlikely feat, Sanders must show that he has "momentum" as the primary season comes to an end, with the Democratic National Convention looming on July 25 in Philadelphia.

Both Oregon and Kentucky have been considered by many experts to be fertile ground for Sanders victories, which would give him four consecutive wins in binding state primaries — after the "democratic socialist" senator from Vermont won last week's West Virginia primary and the Indiana Democratic primary the week before that.
But while polls have been scarce in both Oregon and Kentucky, several trends now point to possible Clinton upsets in both states, wins that for Clinton would appear to end any argument that Sanders could make for ousting her at the convention.
My read on Oregon - it's neck and neck. Polls and turnout good for Clinton. My model - a tie. The ideology - prob Bernie. A true 50-50.Both states hold "closed" primaries, meaning that only Democrats — not independents or Republicans — may vote in the Democratic primaries. Sanders has yet to win a single closed primary contest.

The lone poll taken in Oregon, from May 6 to May 9, by DHM Research, shocked the Sanders camp by showing Clinton with a 15 percentage-point lead in the state.
Also, Oregon conducts its primary by mail, so turnout and demographic information has already begun rolling in. The data shows that voters in the Oregon primary have so far come from older age groups — groups that lean heavily toward Clinton while Sanders dominates with younger voters.
And these turnout stats made me wonder what was driving turnout. It would appear older voters are voting in droves. pic.twitter.com/Oy9AqafzZYIn Kentucky, no poll has been conducted since March, when a Public Policy Polling survey showed Hillary Clinton leading Bernie Sanders by five points. But the closed primary may also favor Clinton in that state as well.
