5. I'm in pretty much the exact situation

 

I supported Bernie in the 2016 primaries, but wholeheartedly supported Hillary beginning the day the primaries were over. This time I am undecided, but not inclined to vote for Bernie this time, in large part because I was very disappointed by his refusal to concede for over a month after the primaries were over in 2016 and his half-hearted support of Hillary in the general election. It makes me angry because she was a class act after she conceded to Obama in 2008 and she deserved the same from Bernie in 2016.

Like you, I am in a late primary state so I may not get much of a vote, although the past two contested primary seasons (2008 and 2016) the late states have mattered more than they used to.

For the first time since I was old enough to vote, I am not getting invested in a candidate in the primaries this time (at least not yet), but I will definitely support the eventual nominee. Not that it will matter in a state where the Democratic nominee usually gets at least 60% or close to it.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
