I've read some state-by-state "analyses" of Feb. 5, that presumptively awarded NJ and CT to Hillary. On the basis of proximity, I guess.
I grew up in Connecticut, actually served on a Dem. Town Committee, and have lived in NYC area for 27 years. I see exactly zero political sphere of influence overlapping the state borders. Not NYC-based media buys; that's a different thing.
What is the rationale, the informed basis, for making Hillary such a presumptive favorite in NJ and CT?
For example (not to be taken literally), if someone said, "Joe L. stills controls the levers of power in CT Dem party, and he's a Hillary ally," okay ... something like that.
But just on geography and a wave of the hand, that's not enough.
