It was not a good thing certain folks didn't bother to participate in yesterday's NV caucus

It looks like to me that could very well be an indication of how shallow Hillary's support really is. Will her supporters bother to vote in the GE? Seeing this is a real concern for me.

1. I've seen that far earlier than yesterday.

What does it mean to you that 67% view her as dishonest? Do you think people want a dishonest person in the White House? Do you believe that creates enthusiastic support?

6. The narrative for some time has been that Bernie supporters won't show up to vote for him.

I think that was put to rest yesterday when they showed up and Hillary's didn't.

8. It makes me wonder about the 33%. Do they live in caves?

I can see how the 1% could vote for her. I have no idea how anybody could honestly say they think she is honest.

13. Some people are not aware of what she really does for a living

My relative that passionately supports her has no idea what her actual policy positions are, other than where she thinks they help her. She just likes Hillary(The way I used to), thinks it's her turn, and that she will do a lot to help women.

I wish that was the case.

5. I find this fascinating. They were there for Hillary in the rolling caucuses

They weren't there yesterday. That is some very shallow support.

7. Hillary crooked stuff

Note the crooked stuff from Clinton people written up below. Just disgusting. Thank goodness Bernie has alert, smart staff people there. And a bow to the fine Clinton people on the credentials committee who stood in solidarity with the member the Clintonistas tried to have removed.

9. Either that

Or they think it's already in the bag and there's no need to worry about NV.

10. Maybe this could be a factor too

Hillary had the leadership of the casino unions force
their members to support Hillary. Don't forget she also
had some casino owner support too. Well the members showed up for the first round but then said fuck it on the second round.

My conjecture but it might have plausibility into the equation.

So it might not just be apathy....... but it is interesting.

12. You mean they suddenly got informed ....

or developed a conscience? Based on my experience at our caucus, Hillary could eat a puppy in front of them and they'd still support her. Because, you know, it's her turn and she's a woman and she has all that experience and stuff.

15. I'm thinking that a lot of the people who didn't participate were those casino workers--

--who were allowed to caucus while working due to the special Harry Reid deal. They probably didn't feel like doing it for free on their own time.
