3. There has been tremendous push

the past few days on social media to dispirit Bernie voters. I have even seen it on forums that are supposed to be pro-Bernie. Calls for civility while folks insist on posting the question "would you vote for Hillary". The reason for the constant barrage is that they want to make her SEEM inevitable so that we give up. Even some pretty experienced Bernie advocates are falling for this and giving these people the benefit of the doubt.

I have also seen a few glimmers of where it's coming from - the Koch Bros.: http://abcnews.go.com/ThisWeek/hillary-clinton-president-gop-pick-charles-koch/story?id=38622141

OK, this is Koch money and they are switching to Hillary, or at least hedging their bets by supporting her as an establishment candidate along with the chosen repug. If the repugs actually run Trump they may even support her more strongly. If we had any doubt where the sudden media stirrings are coming from it's got to be a public relations firm hiring folks to post on behalf of Hillary - and Koch money can afford that. They are going to have scripts and they are going to push certain ideas. I think that is what we're seeing.

So they will try their best to dispirit us, and especially dispirit voters in California. That is a huge state with a lot of delegates. A big win there for Bernie will push Hillary out of the race. Do you think they don't realize this?

Thank you very much for putting up the numbers as a defense. They may be getting drowned out by the white noise, but for thoughtful folks who are still reading we DO still have a chance here.
