1. You don't need to.

Evidently, 20% of them have come right out and said they would vote for Trump if their candidate did not get the nomination.

2. Than a pox on them! I'd vote for a earwig over Trump, as long as it was on the Democratic ticket.

I will say that I would be VERY hard pressed to vote for Gabbard or Gillibrand, but I'm hoping they're not even around by the time the debates start.

11. I too would have a hard time with those two...



...and still, if one of them pops out of the convention...I'll be running to the polls in November 2020 to vote for them. I've concluded that this is my Cinderella period with the primary candidates. Between now and the Ohio primary, I can like who I like, compare/contrast as I please and (every though they're Democrats) I can choose not to vote for some of them.

Then the clock strikes midnight on the last day of the convention and a candidate emerges. At that point - earwig, ham sandwich, Cap'n Dan, or whoever...they're my candidate. This chit about Trump being a viable "second choice" vs. someone's primary candidate of choice...makes me f'ing crazy.

4. These are mostly Bernie voters, right?

Then Biden voters, then Pete.

But the bulk are Bernie, right?

5. Using the 24-25% of Hillary voters who voted for McCain in 2008 as a metric. Maybe.

9. unfortunately, the tactic was to inflict pain on america for not getting "their" way. we saw that in

 

2000


hopefully we have a huge uprising of democratic voters so a a few hundred thousand dissidents do not effect the next election like they did in 2016

10. I cannot imagine how a real Democrat would think Trump is better than a Democratic candidate.

That makes absolutely no sense. Trumpís policies are all far-right. You would have to be brain dead.

13. Exactly.

In the general, you're voting for policies, not the person.
