Bernie's supporters, who will vote for Secretary Clinton out of fear of Trump, have six weeks

to start lying to pollsters. It may be hard to do, to tell a deliberate lie; but it's not the same as lying to a friend or a member of your family. In life, sometimes a lie is necessary. "Does this dress make me look fat?" is a question that begs for a dishonest answer. "Who will you vote for in the general election" is another.

If Bernie Sanders is to defy the odds and come away from the Democratic National Convention as the Party nominee, his supporters need to tell one specific lie to one class of individuals. How Sanders' supporters end up voting in November should have no correspondence to what they convey, for tactical reasons only, to pollsters. Lying to a pollster is not throwing a brick through a window. It may be immoral, but nobody's place in heaven is going to get yanked away from them for telling pollsters a lie. Someone may lose sleep over telling such a lie to a pollster, but the end, in this case, justifies the means.
One small lie for a movement of individuals could lead to one giant leap for mankind.' Ahaha!

3 out of 4 of Sanders' supporters are making a mistake
Polls continue to convey most of Sanders' supporters would vote for Secretary Clinton in a Clinton v Trump general election match-up.

1. I'm not sure what that would do or how it would help anything.

5. Your headline, for me, just needs a bit of an adjustment (I know it is the Examiner's headline) :

 

"Those of Bernie's supporters who will vote for Secretary Clinton out of fear of Trump, have six weeks"


I always answer every poll with the fact that I will be voting for Bernie.

6. Thank you for that

It scares me how many Berners have said they would vote for Her.

Every time someone asks Bernie if he will endorse Her, I stop breathing until he answers. So far I've loved his answer.

And I'm still breathing.
