26. But

 

Are you really not worried that if the majority of us don't want Hillary, and the SD system pushes her through anyway, that it is a bad omen for the general election? I think you assume everyone who doesn't want Hillary will vote for her anyway, but many will not. Is it really a good idea to ask the public who they want, and then ignore that decision and run someone else? Can you show me precedent where this has happened and resulted in a positive election result?

I'm aware it's in in place for decades, but since it was put in place there have been two Democrat presidents. The system isn't exactly timeless and tested.

Take your own advice; the primary cycle is not an election. Forcing someone through doesn't mean they will win anything as a result. When the GE polls show her losing to everyone but Trump, and an eroding lead against even him, why insist on running her if she has a lower chance of winning?

Is the sense of satisfaction you get from knowing the elite are on your side really worth handing the GOP complete control of the entire government?
