It's hard to read Quinnipiac's latest from New York without chortling.
Home-state Clinton leads (by 12 points) in the April 19 primary contest against Sanders, of course, but the chortling kicks in upon reading that Trump leads his primary opponents, Cruz and Kasich, by 36 and 37 points, respectively.
The chortling elevates to guffawing when one imagines New York, with its eponymous urban center's ethnic diversity and vastly white rural upstate expanses, as a national microcosm. And there, "women back Clinton 60 - 27 percent while men go 45 percent for Clinton and 41 percent for Trump," reports Quinnipiac. "She tops Trump 44 - 37 percent among independent voters."
The unbalances will only get worse — or rather, better — and not only in "blue" New York. Virtually the entire Electoral map will become awash in blue.
Why, I ask, would anyone other than Mitch McConnell or Paul Ryan wish to tamper with this most perfect of storms? It's going to be beautiful.
