5. Thank you

For posting a link to this excellent piece and please thank your friend dopper0189 for taking the time to write it.

Finally I want to speak directly to Sanders online supporters. There is no polite way of saying this, stop with the skewing of polling data. Itís one thing to advocate for your candidate, itís another to try and fire up your supporters; but by misleading people into think there isnít a messaging and communication issue with the Sanders campaign and black America directly hurts his campaign. It clearly wasnít a ďthey donít know himĒ or weíre ďwinning younger African American votersĒ from the data. When you donít acknowledge you have a problem you canít work to solve it. Furthermore when voters are expressing misgivings, and you donít address them there is a negative reaction. Campaigns are about advocating for your candidate to voters. When a campaign has a communication issue a good advocate works to bridge that gap, not pretend it doesnít exist.

Good advice.
