Hey Gang! Just came in here to share with you about our Bernie phone bank tonight... [View all]
Tonight we had our second Bernie phone bank (Ive donated the use of my restaurant for phone banking and other activities for Bernie) and although its anecdotal, I think HRCs campaign is going to have a big shock on their hands in terms of women. Out of the small group assembled this evening (more were coming but I was too fatigued to stay longer) only ONE of them was male. The rest were women and the minority of the women were white. Half of them were Id say 45+ and the other half were under 30. There was ONE white guy. One.
The same thing happened last week but there were two men, one white, one Asian-American.
So...again, purely anecdotal but I wouldnt be a bit surprised to find that this is happening with volunteer groups all over the US. So if her chief weapon of surprise (no its not a comfy chair) is this army of women who are allegedly backing her I think shes going to be unpleasantly surprised. Most of us are not going to vote for a woman just because shes one of us, theyre going to vote for the candidate who is going to do the best by their children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and generations to come. Thats what were interested in. This isnt team sports. AND SPEAKING OF TEAM SPORTS, remember I am IN Hillarys home turf so she doesnt even have home-field advantage.
Anyway, thats it. Just wanted to share what I think is significant.
I miss our daily give and take but Ill be back after Bernie kicks ass in the primaries. Much love to you all!!!
