The main difference between Clinton and Sanders Supporters. [View all]

The main difference between Clinton and Sanders supporters is that Clinton supporters are more likely to attack Sanders supporters than Sanders supporters attack Clinton supporters. Clinton supporters talk about personality while the vast majority of Sanders supporters are about policy. I noticed this even before I became a Sanders supporter, and it is across all modes of median not just on this website. That is part of the reason I became a Sanders supporter.

While the media gave us the narrative on the Bernie Bros, it gave them Clinton supporters a carte blanche to say what ever nasty things they wanted to about Bernie supporters.

The Clinton supporters complain about the Bernie or busters, but their continued nastiness of the Clinton supporters are only going to increase the ranks of the busters. I now stay away from General Discussion Politics, because her supporters there with their constant insults to Sanders supporters name it hard for me to vote for Clinton if she wins the nomination.

Have these people ever heard of the book, "How to Win Friends and Influence People,"? Most Clinton supporters are not doing a good job with winning over non supporters. It seems like they are alienating people on purpose. It causes me great concern in the general if Clinton wins the nomination because of many of her supporters are clueless on winning votes. If her campaign and supporters treats members of her own party with such great contempt, is she going to treat independent voters the same way in the general election, and potentially turn them off voting for the democratic candidate?
