(KWWL) -

Believe it or not, it has been four months since Senator Ted Cruz and Secretary Hillary Clinton claimed victory in the Hawkeye State during the first-in-the-nation caucuses.

Senator Cruz topped Donald Trump, who of course has gone on to take the Republican party by storm and claims the party's nomination.

Secretary Clinton, meanwhile. squeezed by Bernie Sanders in Iowa, and she's still battling the Vermont Senator for the Democratic party's nomination.

Donald Trump faces new problems, following the release of court documents about Trump University.

While the information may be campaign gold for Hillary Clinton, experts say she has her work cut out, trying to win the Democratic nomination against Bernie Sanders in the California primary.

Secretary Clinton sharpens attacks against Donald Trump following new information about his now defunct university.

"This is more evidence Donald Trump himself is a fraud," Secretary Clinton said.

Trump retaliated, campaigning that the former secretary is unfit to lead.

"Hillary Clinton and this is 100 percent, Hillary Clinton who lies, I mean she lies, remember that I started that. She lies. She lies. She made a speech and she's making another one tomorrow and they send me a copy of the speech, and it was such lies about my foreign policy," Trump said.

With a narrow margin between candidates, KWWL political analyst Chris Larimer said, we could see fewer voters casting ballots this November, since Trump and Clinton are so unpopular among their parties.

"If it's less than 130,000,000 I think that's a story there, that there is some voter apathy there," Dr. Larimer said.

He added that if Bernie doesn't suspend his campaign after the California primary, it could hurt chances among democrats.

"I think there's a danger of hurting Hillary, and I think there's also a chance of hurting Bernie Sanders' legacy, really," Dr. Larimer said.

On Thursday, Republican Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, said he will vote for Donald Trump.

Meantime, several republicans, like the Bush family, refuse to endorse him.

As several Bernie supporters said they will not vote for Hillary Clinton.

According to experts, even if Bernie Sanders wins the California Primary, he still wouldn't have enough votes to beat Hillary for the Democratic ticket.
