69. "what does the plethora of Bernie signs everywhere say..." ?
Sat Jun 4, 2016, 05:42 PM
Jun 2016

What it says is the same thing that Bernie's YUUUUGE rallies say; nothing of consequence.

This is the 21st century...digital media, social media, an abundance of technology to connect and network with people across vast distances, alleviating the need to be physically present to build support.

Bernie fans harping about "signs" and "rallies" is the equivalent of 19th-century textile workers championing their traditional ways while decrying the Industrial Revolution.

I see Obama stickers everywhere. But no Hillary ones - anywhere. reformist2 Jun 2016 #12

A yard sign doesn't vote. People do. tonyt53 Jun 2016 #3
And there wouldn't be any correlation right? nt Live and Learn Jun 2016 #8
apparently not - the OP reports no Hillary signs, yet we know the delegate counts, don't we DrDan Jun 2016 #17
It is a bit unusual don't you think? I wonder if it could mean something. nt Live and Learn Jun 2016 #20
no - I don't think so - it will change during the GE DrDan Jun 2016 #22
Then we differ in opinion. LOL, but I already knew that. nt Live and Learn Jun 2016 #28
then what is your explanation for the lack of Hillary yard signs? DrDan Jun 2016 #34
Sorry, I am not allowed to say here. nt Live and Learn Jun 2016 #36
That literally nobody supports HRC and every vote for her was fraud. PeaceNikki Jun 2016 #38
yeah . . . that must be it . . . DrDan Jun 2016 #40
Ah the Peggy Noonan litmus test: She preditcted Romney would win because of all the Yard Signs out riversedge Jun 2016 #53
Apparently not, since Bernie is losing. (or has already lost). Hillary got millions more votes. Lil Missy Jun 2016 #56
Peggy Noonan only saw Romney signs in 2012 and wrote a long editorial about it emulatorloo Jun 2016 #5

Of course not! Lol emulatorloo Jun 2016 #46
That does it. It's clearly over. Why is Hillary even trying? nt eastwestdem Jun 2016 #6
Her supporters aren't doing much of anything to show their support. reformist2 Jun 2016 #13

I'm not claiming that there is a 1:1 correspondence, but there is NO sign of support for her. reformist2 Jun 2016 #15
1,769 - 1,501 is a pretty "strong sign of support for her" DrDan Jun 2016 #41

Her base has been less elusive at the polls than sanders onenote Jun 2016 #16
Many of us don't plop signs in our yards, or plaster our bumpers. We support her at the polls. PeaceNikki Jun 2016 #18
So she had scads of enthusiastic fans, who are all unified in their aversion to yardsigns. Amazing. reformist2 Jun 2016 #23
Not fans, *supporters*. Voters. She's a candidate, not One Direction. We have no need for "merch" PeaceNikki Jun 2016 #25
