"I had let myself mistake the loudest people for The People."

http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2016/04/20/many_hillary_clinton_supporters_in_new_york_kept_their_allegiances_quiet.html?wpsrc=sh_all_mob_tw_top

Michelle Goldberg really nails this one. Hillary Clinton has over 10 million votes and a silent majority. I can relate in a way, my mom lives in Brooklyn, supports Hillary. She told me a month ago she thought Bernie might win NY. She checked her neighborhood in Brooklyn and it went Hillary 65-35. I live in the outskirts of Alphabet City in Manhattan, only a few blocks from the Bernie rally in Washington Square, my precinct went Hillary almost 70-30. (Even more relatable, author cites her friend at New School, which is also my alma mater!)

1. Great post. In a similar but importantly different way, I struggled in my decision who to support.

 

The most vocal Sanders supporters at DU are so obnoxious, that I had to keep reminding myself that mouthy, awful supporters are not a reflection of the candidate.

2. The real conspiracy theory should be

Are those people actually Bernie supporters? Then again, I noticed that Bernie was spearheading a lot of these lines of attack so maybe they just lost their way? Going negative is a risky strategy.

7. Nice Unity.

I'd give you a gold star but Bernie pays a little less than Hilly does.

8. He paid a shitload of money to somebody to do something.

 

He burned $40 million in March. And you didn't get a piece of the action?

4. You know, Sanders has taken ownership of most of Democratic issues, now want ownership of

 

"the people". Lol. No fucking way. He does not get "the people" when more of "the people" have stood with Clinton and "the people" supported Clinton with their votes.
