Why California could decide the outcome of the 2020 democratic primaries
“I do think the early states will help winnow the field,” Christian Grose, a professor at University of Southern California (USC), told ThinkProgress.
Grose noted that even if 10 candidates drop out by the time the California votes, there could still be more than a dozen candidates on the ballot. Dividing up votes among the remaining candidates means “a lot will end up with probably single digits,” he said.
“I think a landslide would be difficult for anybody.”
