30. Most of who is the poster who wrote it, and believes most everyone has the same thoughts

Which is quite faulty reasoning since it is only an opinion with nothing to back it up. Though the polls may change, at this point in time Hillary is leading, not only in the primaries, but also in the general election

That represents more than just a personal opinion, that is what it is today

What is interesting of those who profess Hillary cannot win in the general, they also are of the opinion that their candidate can, whether that be Warren who is not running, and Bernie who will.

I would like point out that whichever candidate someone supports, those supporters believe their candidate will win. Polls are the closest thing we have to measure the viability of a prospective candidate other than the actual election.

Anyone who says otherwise, is just projecting what they hope for.

When George McGovern ran for President, everyone of his supporters believed he could win, including me, in spite of the polls indicating the contrary.

The other falicy that exhibits itself especially among those on DU who do not view Hillary as ideal, is that fact that she does have a lot of supporters, and to ignore that is really willful ignorance.

That does not mean that the candidate they support won't eventually take the lead, but at this time that is not the case.
