90% of Sanders Supporters Back Clinton: Pew Research

90% of Sanders Supporters Back Clinton: Pew Research
?1469483200
Pew Research Center published some interesting polling results today to coincide with the Democratic National Convention illustrating “Clinton’s March to Nomination.” Their take away is 90 percent of “consistent” supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders now favor Sec. Hillary Clinton over her Republican rival.

But, through their random-digit-dial surveys conducted in English and Spanish, Pew found that 44 percent of Democrats changed their nominee preference during the course of the primaries.

Sanders supporters were almost as fickle in their support of the senator from Vermont. He did slightly better with loyalty from his supporters, but still just twenty percent of primary voters consistently named him as their first choice.

Pew also found the Democratic primary race support for the candidates divided along demographic lines including race, gender, education, and age. The only surprise to those following the news during the primaries is, I think, how evenly split support was in some of the demographic categories.

Welcome news.

1. Which is why it is prudent not to snark at each other, even though there was

definite rudeness and disrespect while some of the Clinton speakers were speaking.

Hopefully tomorrow that will be pretty much over with

I am going to give it the benefit of the doubt, especially since the convention today ended on a note of unity

6. We need to look around... ask ourselves, who wants to fight? Who is constantly picking a fight?

Who is more intetested in stirring up shit, than promoting unity?

That applies to the jackass hecklers, as it applies to people on the internet.

Who wants to stir up dissent and simply can't do without an argument right now--- or do without trying to piss fellow Democrats off?

And Then ask ourselves-

Why would they be doing that?

7. I can only control my actions, and I am going to pursue the theme of the Convention

which is unity to defeat Trump.

For those who do not subscribe to that goal, there is nothing to discuss with them as far as I am concerned

9. Note that pollsters predicted this all along,

and those in the remaining 10% still have 3 months before election day to decide or change their decision.

It's the MSM who are always trying to stir up and widen divisions.

10. But the corporate media only focuses on the 10%! They want Trump in office.
