Cruz leaves U.S. race after Trump romp; Bernie edges out Hillary, but probably still can’t win on math alone

Republican candidate Ted Cruz ended his campaign after a crushing defeat to Donald Trump in the Indiana primary, the New York Times reported. Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton with 53.2% of the vote to 46.8%. FiveThirtyEight had tallied polls plus forecasts showing Clinton will handily defeat Sanders, with a 90% chance of winning the Democratic nod. The delegate math for Sanders after this point is incredibly daunting, as noted by Nate Silver here (no direct link to table available, scroll to the entry timestamped at 7:44 pm). Clinton is widely expected to clinch a majority of delegates by 7 June.
