Two contested conventions?

Back about six weeks ago, I tried to do the calculus on who would win what state for both the Democratic primaries.  I even posted about some of it.  I need to dig out my Excel tables and see how I did on a state-by-state basis.  But from the perspective of now, the races both are a lot more interesting than they were a week ago.

Ted Cruz trounced Trump in Wisconsin and Bernie Sanders has bested Clinton in a impressively growing string of contests too.  It's becoming more and more possible (the unDemocratic super-delegates aside) that both parties end up having contested conventions if recent trends hold.  I doubt many people would have guessed that a week ago.

Buckle your seat belts. 

And as an unrelated aside R.I.P. Merle Haggard.
