April 1, 2020: Donald Trump and the White House’s coronavirus task force discussed the projected mortality rate during a daily press conference on Tuesday. Joe Biden endorsed two Wisconsin school referendums in Milwaukee and Racine.
“With the coronavirus injecting upheaval into a primary contest that was finally starting to appear more settled, the earliest Biden, the delegate leader, could now win the nomination is on the night of the June 2 primaries, if he nabs about 60% of the outstanding delegates.
In order for Sanders to clinch the nomination under that same timeframe he would need to net roughly 83% of the remaining delegates—a much higher portion of the delegate pool than the 39% he’s collected thus far.”
