2. Exactly

No one wins the general without support of at least some independents, who apparently are feeling the bern tonight in Michigan!

4. And that really counts in the general

Independents are the voters that can make or break an election. 42% of voters in this country identify as Independent. That's almost half of the voters in the country.

5. Hillary has dominated Bernie in Republican states where the Democratic nominee has no chance

Bernie is winning in states where Trump can hammer Hillary on trade deals and Wall Street.

Bernie is the obvious choice for electability.

10. I heard it live on CNN shortly before the time that I posted.

They were spewing a bunch of data and I know I heard it correctly. I don't remember who said it.

11. Here's a link to the exit poll data

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/primaries/MI

It confirms what I posted earlier. People who said they were independents voted 71-28 for Bernie, self described Democrats were 57-41 for Hillary.

12. Hillary will not be able to beat Trump!

He is drawing people not just based on his racism but based on his stance on trade and other similar economic issues.

Hillary will just fail against Hillary.

13. this should scare the fuck

Out of Democrats irrationally bound to Hillary. Yes she can easily win the Democratic nomination but the General is another story.
