In an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders watched a clip of his competitor Hillary Clinton saying that she will be the nominee and:
“That is already done in effect. There is no way I won't be.”
“Whoa,” Sanders responded:
“Just a tinge of arrogance there, I think.”
A number of states including California, the biggest prize in the Democratic primary with 546 delegates at stake, go to the polls on June 7th.
Although Sanders trails Clinton by fewer than 300 delegates, he is far behind when unpledged superdelegates, who can support whichever candidate they please, are included.
Sanders theoretically could still win the Democratic nomination, but he would have to poach the support of most of Clinton's superdelegates, which is an unlikely prospect.
