After the crushing defeat he suffered in the New York primary, Bernie Sanders chances of winning the Democratic nomination grew much slimmer. He would now have to win about 70% of the delegates in all of the remaining states to reach the magic number of delegates (2,383).
Five more states will go to the polls to vote next Tuesday (April 26th) -- Delaware, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. I'm not aware of any viable polls released for Delaware and Rhode Island, but the three states with the most delegates at stake have been polled -- and it doesn't look very good for Bernie. He not only won't get the required 70%, but will probably lose all three of those states.
Currently, Hillary Clinton has an average lead of 7.5 points in Connecticut, about 21.7 points in Maryland, and about 15.8 points in Pennsylvania. The Sanders campaign simply cannot afford to lose those three states, or even finish even with Clinton in them. That would just push Clinton closer to the nomination, and Sanders further from it.
