Hillary Clinton's 'New York Values' garners more delegates; handily wins New York primaries; fired-up and ready to go to storm California; set to clinch Democratic nomination for US Presidency.

For Sanders, a penultimate defeat; essentially can be the straw that breaks the camel’s back; possibly putting an end to his presidential aspirations.  Losing New York by a large margin makes his already highly improbable chances of catching Hillary nearly impossible. While still not mathematically totally; eliminated, at this point, you have to be optimistic to the point of borderline-delusion to believe Sanders, the dark-horse candidate, is going to be able to catch Hillary without a political-miracle the likes of which our nation has never seen.

Sanders needs about 56% of the remaining delegates to tie with Hillary.  

California is the biggest ‘prize’ insofar as number of delegates go, with 247 delegates, but New York carries with it the second most delegates (223) awarded in any state; making New York and California pivotal (swing) states.  

On April 26th when northeastern states Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Connecticut are all headed to the polls; If Sanders can pull off huge wins in ALL of those states, he might be able to come from behind to snatch victory from the jaws of bitter defeat; but again, the likelihood is not very great (of a Sander’s victory over Hillary Clinton).
