41. Their stunt will not cause a loss of D votes for Sanders.

Most people do not like loud mouth bullies- and that is how these young women came across. IMO, their stunt was amateurish and showed their lack of political sophistication. I don't believe it was thought through very carefully by them and what ever their motivation(s) and goals were, they failed incredibly.

If their goal was to get arrested and demonstrate that Sander's is a bigot- it did not happen
If their goal was to change hearts and minds of Democrats- it did not happen.
If their goal was to draw off D votes with people of color- that will not happen because POC do not simply follow the loudest, angriest person in a crowd. They are quite capable of seeing people for they truly are. In fact, I would venture to say that because of crcumstances they've had to face in their lives- that they are better than most white people are at it.
