1. Michael Tesler at the Monkey Cage on Latinos' attitudes toward Donald Trump.

2. Also at the Monkey Cage, Andrew Rudalevige looks at the Supreme Court case on immigration and presidential powers.

3. Dan Drezner on Trump’s unimpressive record on foreign policy.

4. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities' Kathleen Romig on longevity and Social Security.

7. At the Upshot, Nate Cohn has a good overview of the Republican contest.

8. On the Democratic side, Greg Sargent is very good on the real differences between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

9. And the Huffington Post's Jonathan Cohn looks at the Sanders health-care plan.
