28. "No sense in not picking up Bernie voters"
Fri Jun 3, 2016, 08:29 AM
Jun 2016

The difference is that the strong majority of Bernie voters will vote for Hillary anyway, as the polls show. The few that remain on the far left will have no more statistical significance than the PUMAs did in 2008.

Now getting Republicans to vote for our candidate by pointing out the idiocy of their candidate - that is worth spending time on.

And some nutty people here are hating it also. Nt Logical Jun 2016 #1
