So do you support those who voted for Stein instead of Hillary in Michigan? CajunBlazer Nov 2016 #55
Do you support those that voted for Johnson/Weld (LIB) instead of Trump? Omaha Steve Nov 2016 #67

Granted! So what! Why do you feel the need to defend Stein voters? CajunBlazer Nov 2016 #120
You keep blaming Stein Omaha Steve Nov 2016 #121

I'm un-DU to defend Bernie from being lumped in with Stein? Omaha Steve Nov 2016 #129
Bernie esentially told people they would be stupid if they voted for Stein CajunBlazer Nov 2016 #131
You can lead a horse to water.... Omaha Steve Nov 2016 #132
I'm not the one trying to defend the indefensible ones CajunBlazer Nov 2016 #136
So much for the DU not being a hate site!!! Omaha Steve Nov 2016 #137
Simple question - Why do you find it necessay to defend Stein voters? CajunBlazer Nov 2016 #139
If Johnson voters had voted for Trump he still would have won Michigan and Wisconsin Omaha Steve Nov 2016 #66
Duhhhh..... CajunBlazer Nov 2016 #104

Clinton's loss was only 9 days ago, Sanders' was four months ago, yet many Sanders supporters.... George II Nov 2016 #112
I got past it Omaha Steve Nov 2016 #119
Then why does everyone keep bringing up Sanders, he wasn't even a candidate in the GE. George II Nov 2016 #122
Maybe because many DUers keep blaming Bernie for the loss? Omaha Steve Nov 2016 #130
I was referring to all the Sanders supporters here who are claiming that he would have won. George II Nov 2016 #134
No one's paying attention until after Labor Day... SMC22307 Nov 2016 #140
