The patter of establishment calls for Sen. Bernie Sanders to end his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination has built into a hailstorm.Sanders seeks to build a movement that can make the political revolution needed to transform the country, not simply win the White House.For the first time, the most recent Bloomberg poll shows him edging ahead of Clinton among registered Democratic voters.Sanders draws large and mostly enthusiastic crowds and continues to rouse young people across the country. His supporters are eager to fuel his campaign. The skeptics groused that Sanders would have to swamp Clinton in caucuses and races out West to be competitive, not simply win by 55 percent to 45 percent. Sanders continues to whittle away at Clinton's lead in pledged delegates.Meanwhile, Clinton, the prohibitive favorite backed by virtually all the gatekeepers, big donors and skilled campaign operatives, isn't exactly sealing the deal. The longer Sanders stays in the race, the harder it will be for Clinton to abandon her new populist pledges.There isn't a whit of reason for Sanders to shut his campaign down.
