For those who are supposedly so worried about a trump presidency. [View all]

Maybe the party shouldn't nominate A person that 67% of democrats think is a liar, the one under FBI investigation. The woman who jeopardized national security, this isn't a right wing fantasy, these are facts. The republicans are organizing and they hate Hillary. Polls show her consistently losing to trump, while sanders beats him handily. So if you Hillary supporters really think trump is the biggest threat to America, you wouldn't be supporting the candidate WHO CANT BEAT HIM.
When you people elect president trump, don't blame us. We've been telling you for months.

Hillary was chosen but not by the voters. And the math proves it -- 261 to 2. IdaBriggs May 2016 #55
Over 13 million PEOPLE have voted for her. You can write a book justifying otherwise, but reality Metric System May 2016 #56
And millions more have not. And polls consistently say they don't like her. IdaBriggs May 2016 #57
Using that logic, millions more have also NOT voted for Sanders. Metric System May 2016 #58
