ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders predicted that "Donald Trump will not become President of the United States," saying "love will always trump hate," at a campaign rally in Madison, Wisconsin, Sanders said polls showed that he had a better chance of prevailing over Trump than his rival Hillary Clinton. "The American people are just flabbergasted at the nature of this republican campaign," he said. He said rather than focusing on key issues facing Americans republicans are, "are attacking each others wives, this is beyond belief, and it is something, not only, I think, beyond comprehension, to the average American, but if you are a sane Republican you are looking at this in disbelief," he said. "At the end of the day, loves always trumps hate," he said. Wisconsin will hold both Democratic and Republican primaries on April 5. Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, won contests in Alaska, Hawaii and Washington on Saturday, chipping away at Clinton's lead in the race for the 2,382 delegates needed to take the Democratic nomination at the party's Philadelphia convention in July. Clinton now has a lead of 268 pledged delegates over Sanders heading into the final two months of the nominating battle. When superdelegates, party leaders who can support any candidate, are added, Clinton leads 1,712-1,004, according to an Associated Press count. But Sanders aides said he could eclipse Clinton's advantage after the final round of contests on June 7, and that superdelegates would begin to switch to back Sanders from Vermont once he did. "We are in this to win it, and there is a path to do so," campaign manager Jeff Weaver said. Clinton's campaign described her lead as "insurmountable" given the party's proportional allocation of delegates in all states, which means Clinton will keep piling up delegates even in states Sanders wins.
