As Donald Trump passes the magic delegate number and speeds toward the nomination, there are still those who are holding out hope of somehow derailing him — maybe a "third party" bid.

Political analyst Dr. Chris Whitt explains what Libertarian and Green Party candidates could mean to the 2016 race, and if there is there still time for somebody like Bill Kristol and other conservatives to put something together.

He also talks about California Governor Jerry Brown's endorsement of Hillary Clinton and whether Americans are really ready for the change that outsider candidates like Trump and Sanders represent.

Every other Friday or so from now until the November election, we'll talk with  Whitt about the national, statewide and local races from a Quad Cities perspective. You can hear all our conversations here.
