Sanders pushes hard for Latino support but faces tough climb against Clinton

Bottom part of article. Kind of tweaked me. But I guess it's good to know?
Read this article this morning.

-snip-
On a recent afternoon, Natalie Montelongo, a Clinton campaign organizer who spent part of her childhood in Mexico, briskly walked through a residential neighborhood in east Las Vegas, clipboard in hand. She knocked on door after door, asking the mostly Latino residents whether they planned to vote for Clinton.

Fermin Vera, 55, was on the fence.

“She doesn’t offer us anything different,” he complained in Spanish. And he didn’t like the fact that Clinton, while secretary of State, had conducted some official business using a private email account. He had heard of Sanders, but said he didn’t know much about him.

“I want you to think about something,” Montelongo said. “We’re the only campaign out here knocking on doors, taking the time to get to know you, to see what you think, to listen to what you need.”

She walked away smiling. After a 15-minute conversation, Vera had signed his name to a card pledging to vote for Clinton.

1. Pledges mean nothing.

 

Those that sign them are easily swayed by opinions of others.

Shift the message and watch Clinton falter some more and those pledges can easily become votes for Sanders.

2. 15 minutes? Maybe she signed it to escape.

But, seriously folks, this underscores the need for volunteers.
