32. I expect to see a small change in....

 

I expect to see a small change in those numbers over the months. Bernie will gain some of those currently supporting Clinton. There is a familiarity with Clinton. I think as many in the AA community start seeing Sanders in videos over that of reading about him, they will without a doubt like what they see. Don't think the outsider angle won't be attractive either.

The first state are pretty void of diversity. If Sanders can keep campaigning like this he might go into the early states closer than some think. If he were to pull out a victory, momentum could have an enormous effect. News in the following days as the go into the next states would be non stop David vs Goliath. It will be extremely favorable toward Sanders. As recent history shows us, momentum in this area can move beliefs and opinions. Sounds overstated but it really isn't. States like SC will be flooded with Sanders momentum. People who weren't that familiar with him are going to get a quick lesson. Ten percent can be huge.

Some are coming very close to touting these polls as if these votes are guaranteed. Rhetoric that can only be viewed as using the numbers themselves to say ha, told you the black community doesn't like him. It could be no further from the truth. They don't know him. Not talking about you and your op.
