psst, about that imminent indictment . . .

It appears that 4-digit iPhone passcode was not the fearful problem we were told it was:

There isn't going to be an indictment, either. Rest assured.

NPR, today: Yes, Clinton's Gotten The Most Votes **OF ALL**

Yes, Clinton's Gotten The Most Votes, But GOP Has More Overall
March 19, 2016 3:02 PM ET




Hillary Clinton claimed at a recent debate that she'd gotten the most votes in this 2016 presidential election.

That's true, actually.

Yes, she's gotten more votes than Donald Trump.


2016 Primaries, by candidate:

Clinton - 8,668,136

Trump - 7,548,429

Sanders - 6,131,951


Cruz 5,484,494

Rubio 3,394,134

Kasich 2,725,327

Carson 677,307

Bush 249,894

O'Malley 94,692

The chart is misleading.

The whole story is that even where total turnout is up, as in MI, Dem turnout is less than GOP turnout. In MI for example Dem turnout was 1,193,169, but GOP turnout was 1,322,742. And that that's been the pattern all year. Here's a spreadsheet of this year's turnout:

And for sheer negativity I don't think Clinton's ad holds a candle to Bernie's:

It's right where it's always been. Hint:

Well, since you asked:

Clinton beats Sanders in three big primaries and turns fire on Trump

Source: L.A. Times

Hillary Clinton won primaries in Florida, North Carolina and Ohio, the night’s most contested prize, as her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, struggled to get the boost he needs to try to close the gap in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

A fourth race, in Illinois, appeared very tight based on early returns and exit polls, which also indicated a lead for Sanders in the night's final contest, in Missouri.

"We are moving closer to securing the Democratic Party nomination and winning this election in November,” Clinton told supporters here, and she quickly moved to an attack on the Republican she expects to face in that election, Donald Trump, whom she accused of offering "bluster and bigotry."

"Our next commander in chief has to be able to defend our country, not embarrass it; engage our allies, not alienate them," she said.

"When we hear a candidate for president call for rounding up 12 million immigrants, barring all Muslims from entering the United States, when he embraces torture, that doesn’t make him strong -- it makes him wrong."

WaPo: Clinton looks to triumph over Sanders in Tuesday’s contests



By Lisa Lerer and Ken Thomas | AP March 15 at 2:51 PM

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Hillary Clinton sought separation against Democratic rival Bernie Sanders in Tuesday’s primary contests, seeking victories in Florida and Ohio that would lay the groundwork for the general election against the Republican nominee.

Clinton and Sanders were competing in primaries in Florida and Ohio, the nation’s two leading general election battleground states, along with Missouri, North Carolina and Illinois. Clinton entered the primaries with a lead of more than 200 pledged delegates and could end the day with about two-thirds of the delegates needed to claim the nomination.

“The numbers are adding up in my favor,” Clinton told reporters in Raleigh, North Carolina on Tuesday.

(snip)

Sanders’ team says the calendar will be more favorable to the senator in the weeks ahead. After Tuesday’s contests, the campaign shifts westward, with contests in Arizona, Idaho and Utah on March 22 and Alaska, Hawaii and Washington state on March 26. April includes contests in Wisconsin, Wyoming and New York, which Clinton represented in the Senate but is becoming a major target for Sanders.

“We have a long-term game plan here,” said Sanders senior adviser Tad Devine.
