100. Sanders appeals to outsiders. I know they don't like to think that, but it is accurate.

 

What's kind of funny is that most of his supporters recognize and respect that. It is the outsiders that fight against that claim tooth and nail.

A big part of that support is based in anger at the system. Those individuals are often the ones who find themselves on left leaning message boards railing against the PTB. Many simply aren't democrats and never claimed to be. For them, it is about spreading their "truth." They view any support for democrats to be supportive of the current status in DC. They are not here to garner support for anything. They are here to increase opposition to the party and its platform. They are thoughts based in opposition, not support. This is a very small but very angry and loud group here. Overall, many of his supporters are excellent. My current favorite poster on du is all in for Sanders. They do so for excellent reasons, which they discuss in a very educated manner, including in their discussions of issues they have with Hillary. At this point his supporters are being broad brushed on this board. It is a very loud minority of them that many Hillary supporters are railing against.

Most of the worst offenders at this point have hit desperation mode and won't be around for long. Keep giving that small group of posters rope.

It's not like Hillary supporters here are winning hearts and minds.
