I think it's obvious that many here at DU thinks that their views represent the Democratic Party [View all]

and that the party is as angry as people on this board are, about the same things. However, I live in California, and I don't know anyone personally who frequents DU other than myself. As the primary season progresses across the nation, it might be comforting for people here to think that they have their hands on the pulse of the nation, and everyone feels as they do, but I would disagree. Most of the people I know, or work with, or meet with and talk with standing in line at the bank or grocery store, or doctor's office, or socialize with are not aware of a tenth of the things which are discussed here on this board and I meet with and talk with a diverse segment of people on a daily basis. Most have seen none of the debates or watch on a regular basis, any news or political shows on cable tv like MSNBC or CNN, but they all are out there on Facebook posting what they did over the weekend. So for people here to think that the party is as passionate as they are, they would be mistaken.
