DU Poll: Regardless of your first choice, would you be comfortable with Sanders as the nominee? [View all]

There's been a bunch of discussion here about how polling showed that, even if he isn't someone's first choice, Sanders is the candidate that the most Dems are comfortable with (about 2/3 of Dems, whereas fewer than that are comfortable with any of our other candidates). I'm curious to see how that might compare with the DU population. So... choose one:

91 votes, 0 passes | Time left: Unlimited
I would be comfortable with Sanders as our nominee (though he may or may not be my first choice)
24 (26%)
I would not be comfortable with Sanders as our nominee
67 (74%)
