Why Sam Wang is not covering D primaries anymore

I've been looking forward to his forecasts as his reputation is even more sterling than Nate Silvers. But he's been doing 🐘 only. Yesterday, in a foot note, I finally discovered why http://election.princeton.edu/2016/03/05/more-of-the-same/

* Iím not going to write about Democrats. If we use the majority of pledged delegates as a criterion, the paint became dry as of South Carolina/Nevada. If one includes superdelegates in the count, Hillary Clinton started above the 50% criterion even before Iowa/New Hampshire and has not dipped below.

4. Primaries end March 15 for DailyKos.

Other major liberal Democratic websites are taking note - aren't they?

5. And by March 15, primaries will include large purple states

With a demographic mix that is typical of the country as a whole--not heavily non-Latino white, heavily AA, nor heavily Latino. If she wins these as expected, no one can reasonably dismiss what these votes mean.
