IN A NUTSHELL: MUST READ
#pnut4prez: South Carolina & Nevada Speak Volumes, & Say Peace Out Jeb! Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both won big in South Carolina and Nevada, respectively. Trump’s victory ”at a significant gain of nearly 10% over Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio” helped Jeb Bush finally see the light. After spending way too much on his campaign, Jeb Bush finally dropped out of the race. Meanwhile, Hillary’s win does not necessarily mean the end of Bernie Sanders, but the stabilizing victory is expected to slow the Bern down in the polls.
What does this mean? At this point, we have to accept the reality that Donald Trump is the GOP frontrunner. He has dominated pre-election polling for months, but the media has taken solace in the margin of error, believing he’ll eventually go away. We were wrong. Not only is this Trump’s second primary win, but the sweeping victory proves that he can win over the Deep South, meaning he has the potential to pick up even more support.

Brexit: That Unnecessary EU Crisis After several all-nighters, EU leaders came to a unanimous agreement on a revised EU treaty with Britain. The treaty would give Britain a “special status.” UK PM David Cameron announced a referendum on whether or not the UK stays in the EU for June 23. The referendum has Europe, already reeling from refugee and Greek debt crises, on edge, especially as conservative heavy weights like Boris Johnson say they will campaign for an “out” vote. The British Pound is down 1.6% this morning since the announcement.
