30. One thing not to lose sight of is the reason Bernie is still working hard:

If Hillary refuses to adopt a substantial number of of Bernie's platform planks, she will effectively be letting Trump run to her left and to my way of thinking, that's the only way Trump will win. He's begun adopting the most popular of Bernie's ideas, at least the stated purposes of Bernie's ideas, to bring jobs back to the middle class, for example. Trump has said he will vote against the TPP and he is against all these trade deals because they're bad business. Don't think that these ideas are not getting Trump a lot of independent followers.

If Hillary runs to the right of Trump, she is seriously endangering her whole campaign. If she adopts the best of Bernie's proposals, including his refusal to vote for the TPP, she is making it much more likely that she will beat Trump.
