Bernie supporters: a poll about Hillary vs Trump [View all]

I am genuinely curious about this. I haven't included any questions that ask you to declare who you're voting for, so this is not any purity or unity test.

I myself can't imagine believing as a Democrat/progressive/liberal that the outcome of a Hillary vs a Trump presidency would be substantively the same or that Hillary might even be worse. That genuinely makes no sense to me. But I've seen this sentiment expressed here on DU. So I thought I'd see how prevalent it is. When I use the terms "better" and "worse", what I mean is "better or worse in terms of my own ideals, values, special issues, and for the country".

Please do explain your answers in the comments if you desire.
