The latest polls show Bernie Sanders gaining on Hillary Clinton in California. A poll conducted by PPIC shows Sanders trails Clinton by just two percentage points.

Earlier polls showed Sanders with as much as a double digit deficit. The PPIC polls makes two of the three most recent California polls showing Sanders within striking distance of Clinton.

According to The Atlantic, Sanders spoke about the role he believes California could play in shifting the momentum towards his campaign.

“I believe that if we win here in California, and if we win the other five states that are voting on June 7, we’re going to go marching to the Democratic convention with a hell of a lot of momentum. I believe that if we do well here in California, we’ll march in with momentum and we’ll march out with the Democratic nomination,” Sanders said at a Santa Monica rally.

California has 475 delegates at stake in the June 7 primary. Given the delegates are divided proportionally based on the results, Sanders is attempting to not just win California but come up with a sizable victory to cut into Clinton’s lead.

Here’s a look at the latest California Democratic polls.

Um… TWO polls came out on the same day. One had Hillary up 2 and the other had her up 18. And the one that had her up 18 had a much smaller margin of error. That’s not “Sanders Gaining Ground.”


And here comes the hillbots and Alex Jones fanboys trying to save face but fail big time.
