I spoke with BBC Coventry on Wednesday afternoon about the latest contests in the US Presidential campaign, explaining how Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump consolidated their front-running positions with victories in Arizona.

The discussion looks forward to the next primaries, concluding that by New York on April 19, it could be all over in both the Democratic and Republican races. Then….

Watch the conventions.

Will the Democrats unite behind Hillary Clinton? I think the answer is yes.

Will the Republicans unite behind Donald Trump? I think the answer is a very loud and dramatic no.
