The stakes of Bernie Sanders' take-it-to-the-convention strategy are rapidly rising as fresh polls underscore Hillary Clinton's vulnerabilities and predict a tight race between her and Donald Trump in the fall. After months of talk about the potential of a contested Republican convention, Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, is quickly consolidating his party's support -- something Clinton is unable to do with Sanders still in the race.

Trump's supreme court picks are a conservative dream come true

With Donald Trump becoming the improbable Republican nominee for president, the party is slowly but surely uniting around him. Conservatives from House Majority Leader Paul Ryan to Fox News’s Megyn Kelly have met cordially with Trump, signaling that he’s an acceptable candidate.
