    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker analyzes the victories of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the New York primary.

    Hundreds of thousands of voters, mainly young supporters of Bernie Sanders, were prevented from voting because of New York's onerous voter laws which disenfranchised 30% of the electorate. Unlike other states captured by Sanders in recent weeks NY State laws required independent or unaffiliated voters to change their registrations 193 days prior to yesterday's vote.

    Becker is joined from New York by Kazembe Balagun, journalist and political activist; Stewart Alexander, the 2012 Presidential candidate for the Socialist Party USA; and Gloria La Riva, the 2016 Presidential candidate for the Party for Socialism and Liberation.
