Who's gonna win this thing? If Hillary is the nominee, Trump no doubt. So have fun and I hope your smugness keeps you warm at night.

Or how about how butterfy ballots and poll taxes are trivial barriers!

with more money, DNC and establishment support, like usual, in all likelihood will win the Democratic primary. Having said that, she is not trusted, liked and is now essentially tied nationally and in key swing states with the most unpopular nominee in polling history. So, who knows who will win, but given how horrible of a candidate she is, she gives him the best chance. There is no arguing this at this point in time.

Also, many people don't go to her rallies because she doesn't inspire people and many people that voted for her aren't that involved or attuned to politics. How many people voted for her early on because she was more "electable"? In a large number of early primaries, that pushed her over the top. That was never true and is now obviously not true, but the people saying that weren't that glued in to the actual polls or facts. They voted for a marketing slogan, and chose a weak candidate as a result, and here we are.

Oh well, the fight goes on. Whatever you may think, you are just as much of an obstacle to progressive change as the Republicans, you're just a different challenge.
