1. This goes along with what I'm hearing locally.

 

I just don't believe the polls that are saying that Bernie is going to win Texas. Sorry, but it's just not what I expect.

I will vote for whomever is the Democratic nominee, but I hope it is not Sanders.

2. I don't believe any of our candidates are going to beat tRump there.

 

Sorry, it's just not very likely. Remember that Beto ultimately couldn't beat Cruz, despite Cruz not having anywhere near the rabid support of tRump.

10. I don't see that happening either. It's not a good argument.

13. Really? You mean people on his campaign or random supporters?

 

Because that just seems completely divorced from reality.

18. Sanders himself..

 

Democratic front-runner Bernie Sanders says he can beat Trump in Texas.

8. I agree - they are in the margin of error...

 

But Texas shouldn't be a litmus of who we should send there

7. Down-ticket is also important.

 

A candidate who can keep it competitive would be very important for down-ticket races. We're trying to flip the legislature and there are some very important House and Senate races.

12. Some might say, "but MOE!" That is, margin of error.

 

Now, interestingly, the people might argue "but MOE," might tend to so only in cases in which the polling may not appear to favor the candidate for whom they indicate support.
