80% of my CA phonebank respondents voted for Bernie!!! [View all]

I phonebanked into Cali yesterday. Was calling Permanent Mail-in Ballot voters. 80% of the ones who answered the phone had already voted for Bernie! And I was able to help one of the NPP Bernie voters get a correct Dem ballot, instead of a non-affiliated ballot.

The CA polls have Bernie within 2 points of Hillary right now. Based on my calls, he actually may be ahead of her!

Woo hoo. Go Bernie!
