Democratic leaders are upping the pressure on Bernie Sanders to drop his presidential campaign, alarmed that his continued presence is undermining efforts to beat the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, and again win the White House.Clinton, her aides and supporters have largely resisted calling on Sanders to drop out, noting that she fought her 2008 primary bid against Obama well into June.Clinton will return to Kentucky Sunday, two days before the state's primary.Clinton has won 23 states to Sanders' 19, capturing 3 million more votes than her rival along the way.Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook wrote in a memo to donors this week that there is "no doubt" Clinton will be the Democratic nominee, describing her lead as "insurmountable". White House officials believe Obama has the ability to coax some die-hard Sanders' fans into the Clinton camp, particularly young people and liberals. But if he moves before Clinton officially captures the nomination, he risks angering those voters and undermining that effort.
