Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton seem to have a very different idea of how the presidential primaries work. With California approaching on June 7, each candidate is declaring something different.

Sanders states that “We are in till the last ballot is cast” and continues on his promise to stay in the presidential race until a likely contested convention in July. The senator has been focusing his time on putting support behind a number of California ballot measures, such as legalizing recreational marijuana.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Chris Cuomo: “I will be the nominee for my party, Chris. That is already done, in effect. There is no way that I won’t be.”

California’s have been registering in droves to vote for the upcoming primary.  1.5 million voters have either re-registered or signed up since January 1st. The majority of them are young Democrats between the ages of 25-30, a demographic that largely supports Sanders.

A new national poll by NBC News/Survey Monkey finds that Donald Trump is closing Hillary Clinton’s national lead. Clinton now leads Trump by only three percent, 48 to 45 percent. The same poll shows that Bernie Sanders still holds a double digit lead against Trump, 53 percent to 41 percent.

The poll surveyed 14,100 adults and has a margin of error of +/- 2 percentage points.
