1. Sanders will win NH. However, I'm tired of hearing about fixes for Hillary. Yet I expect to hear it

whenever Hillary wins upcoming primaries.

2. I wish we could trust our election system

without these nagging doubts.

I'm not saying it's happening in this instance, but the damage has been done to the perception of honest elections. It's so discouraging.

3. They may not vote for Bernie either.

The Republican primary is sounding more "compelling".. many may decide to vote Repub instead of Dem.

4. There will be zero "repub crossovers" for Bernie.

 

That is not how our primary works here. If you are a registered Republican or Democrat, you can only vote in your respective primary. Unregistered voters can register at the polls and select either primary (and most unregister on the way out the door.)

6. A WP opinion piece

"Five myths about the NH primaries" appeared on the Washington Post's editorial page Friday. One of its authors is director of the Survey Center at the University of New Hampshire. 

The authors seem to disagree with you, by pointing out that the estimated 45 percent of NH primary voters who are "undeclared" split about equally between Republicans, Democrats, and true Independents.

If they are right, then about 15 percent of expected primary voters who are undeclared and lean R COULD decide to vote in the Democratic primary. Whether some do, and whether most who do choose SBS or HRC, is another matter.

5. Nothing succeeds like the look of success...they are selling the look of success

If she loses by less than 30 points it would be claimed that she was succeeding and just ran out of time.

And until the votes are counted who knows? She might win by .25% or even more.
