15. Her attack mode so far has only made her look ugly - and unhinged.

7. From the McClatchy article, my emphasis.

The most likely Sanders voters to turn away from Clinton in a general election include independents, moderates, whites and men.


Now obviously, we all know she does less well with white men, but she simply can't get independents and she's even likely to lose moderates? That's her home field advantage. That tells you that liberals are simply willing to vote for any Dem that wins, but moderates are wishy washy support for Clinton at best.

ETA: also,

Sanders, an independent, edges Clinton nationally thanks to solid support from several groups. He leads 76-23 percent among those 29 and younger; 63-31 percent among Latinos; 62-32 among independents; 58-38 among the unmarried; and 56-42 among liberals.


He also leads with Native Americans from all I've seen so far.

Final nail in the coffin for 'Bernie attracts only whites'.

8. You'd never even know Hillary had an

opponent if you were only exposed to corporate news. Despite a string of victories, Bernie barely rates a mention. It's like the primary voters are people in that old SNL sketch who go into the diner requesting one thing, but all that's actually available is the cheeseburger they didn't ask for and don't want.

Bernie is doing incredibly well considering a full on media blackout and an opponent who expected to phone it in during the primaries because it's supposedly her turn. Hillary ramping up negative attacks at this time is a piss poor strategy that diminishes her and turns off the Bernie Dems and Independents she'd desperately need if she was so "fortunate" (as she says) to be the nominee.

Interesting, he is wrecking her with Latinos. That bodes very well for California!!!!

13. The real news there is that 75% of Sanders voters would support Clinton.

Which is excellent news.

14. And this is why she can't win the GE

 

From your article:

Poll: 25 percent of Sanders voters would shun Clinton
http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/election/article70202867.html

---
It was 7% before 2016, 14% in Jan of 2016 and 25% now. That unwillingness to vote for her is growing.

16. Keep in mind...

Keep in mind that Clinton won the South by 2 to 1 (66% to 34%), and the South has finished voting. So, judging by these numbers, plus another poll yesterday that had Sanders down by one nationwide, that means that if there was a national poll minus the South, Sanders would clearly be in the lead.

And that's what matters, since that's where the states that still have to vote are.
