13. Well done! Not in MI, but one theme I've noticed ...

... among my friends who are, interestingly, females near 50 years old: a couple in education, one in finance, a few in IT ...

... they are left / center left and are all leaning HRC because they still have the negative gut reaction to 'democratic socialism' and see her as 'more pragmatic'. Small steps. They're not old enough to remember FDR / New Deal and they don't seem too inclined to think outside the box in terms of remaking the system. They're constrained (intellectually) by making what we have now, work. Which, it doesn't. It won't.

Anyway. Wondering if other Bernie supporters have experienced the same with their acquaintances and how, short of a full history and econ lesson, to get the message across.
