Lack of enthusiasm for Bernie in Wisconsin

Yeah, the line is only four blocks long an hour before the doors open...





Bernie will be in Appleton today. Just got the pic from Crystal Dancer, who is waiting in line with three friends. Interesting that all these 60 year old (and older), white women aren't supporting Hillary.

1. The radio just reported that Trump and Hillary are scheduled to be

in North East WI. Not a mention of Bernie. Bernie doesn't exist.

I really hope they choke on it.

15. MSNBC just reported 2 men and a women holding events in WI

 

<didn't give the name of the woman, I'm assuming it's Clinton, but they may have meant Carly making her own endorsement?>, Cruz, and Walker.

But they will keep us updated ... I'm assuming that means if Trump has a shit this morning they will break in to keep us informed.

11. The story as it's told by people who aren't fond of Bernie is

that his supporters are predominantly 18 year old angry, sexist men.

4. 70 year old white woman here, supported Hillary in 2008, have done due diligence

 

since then, would not be supporting Hillary even if Bernie had not decided to run.

Small thing, really, but I sometimes wonder, looking at the Latest Thread page titles, if using irony or sarcasm on the titles would be deliberately used against Bernie, as in look how even DU sees him. I always hesitate before clicking, like lifting up a rock and hoping there is not a snake.

8. Have any campaigns been so deep in snark?

 

it shows the depth of their respect for the process, but I do believe it is an unprecedented level of
disrespect and vacuous issue avoidance.
who would play along with this degree of insincerity?

13. I appreciate snark, but I sometimes think that the snark is just coming from Bernie's supporters,

 

and Hillary's supports are so mean that it just seems like snark, but every word is meant seriously. I think that meanness was honed, or was just dragged out into the light, when she ran against Obama.

14. the attacks from Camp Hillary are the basis for all of that "conversation"

 

none of her supporters have the imagination or freedom to wander from their talking points.

30. Discussing "issues" is not possible. Exactly what position on the issues could Hillary have

 

and advantage over Sanders with the voters?

Healthcare?
Minimum wage?
Wall St. crimes and fraud?
Trade agreements?
Corrupt campaign finance system?
Education?
Criminal Justice Reform?

Any one of those topics can not be argued against Bernies position while still maintaining a facade of being FOR the people.

18. Headlines.

 

You're doing the right thing with this thread, obviously, but the headline being a sarcastic jab at the Bernie attackers doesn't work. We should orient these to everyone potentially reading. Many will only read the headline and not click to see what you mean. Remember all the noise currently being generated about "enthusiasm" for Clinton. Don't add to the noise, I'd say.

Is the intention to draw in Hillary supporters? Whatever it is, I don't care for the backwards headlines.

24. And that's for a rally on a Tuesday morning with Doors Opening at 9:30 AM! Fantastic.

The actual rally doesn't start for another two hours! This tweeter said the line is 7 blocks long now:

He has one tonight in Milwaukee where doors open at 5 PM. I expect that one to be really YUGE!

25. Update ...

 

My friends got in the PAC at about 10:35; they got in line about 8:20 this morning.


They've got great seats and are settling in to wait for Bernie. Still no announced time of his appearance.



This is the second reddist part of Wisconsin (right on the heels of Walkersha County) but there's no question Bernie's going to turn out a crowd today.

29. thanks for the first hand report

Last week in Portland doors opened at 9:45, I got in about 11, it was scheduled to start at 1, and Bernie spoke about 1:40 after some other speakers. They played good music to stir the crowd "Bern Baby Bern" -- and the audience enthusiastically did the wave many times. Lots of excitement.

26. Why don't all those people vote?

We keep seeing large rallies but they don't turn into votes.

Maybe it is more of a curiosity than enthusiasm.
