#pnut4prez: Indiana And The Temple Of Doom

Donald Trump delivered a knockout punch in Indiana yesterday, winning the state by such a wide margin, forcing Ted Cruz, his main competitor to drop out of the race. John Kasich, another contender for the Republican nomination is currently fourth in a two man race. Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders pulled off amajor upset, winning Indiana despite most polls putting Hillary in the lead.

The Republican Party will begin the painfully awkward process of trying to coalesce behind the Donald. RNC Chairman Reince Preibus, a former Trump opponent, tweeted that it was time to unite behind Trump to defeat Hillary. Meanwhile, the Democratic race is far from over as the race shifts to favorable terrain for Bernie, meaning he could win most races left but still lose the race, an odd dynamic that threatens to divide the party even more.
