Just wondering... Clinton has such a bad reputation and Sanders seems to be honest. They seem to be on the same page on so many issues, what is driving Clinton supporters?

Disclaimer... I'm not a Clinton fan, but I'm also not a Sanders supporter. I'm not enamored with any of the candidates to be honest. So... does anyone want to sell me on Hillary Clinton?

no, I'll leave that for a Hillary fan but I will say the only way I'd vote for her is if Donald Trump or Cruz are the Republican nominee then I have to cringe and vote for her to stop a worse scenario for this country.

From a personality standpoint - Sanders seems like a much more likeable/genuine person.

Name recognition. Most famous woman in the world. Up there with Oprah Winfrey among southern African Americans.

Low-info voters voting Dem tend to default to Clinton. She's the candidate that's force-fed to anyone who relies on cable networks for information. She's the status quo candidate.

She is a party woman and Sanders is not. She has the money and support of the party machine.

Trump, Cruz and Hillary! Like being in one of those carnival fun houses where everywhere you look in any direction you're horrified!

How do they get away with this? The Dim base electorate lets them. They like being told what to do and how to think.
My son is a die hard Bernie supporter and has expressed frustration with this entitlement issue. Nevertheless he will vote for Hillary if she's the nominee.

I guess she's been force fed to the masses huh? I've been wondering why after 8 years of Obama there didn't even seem to be an effort by any other democrat to run. I think it's really weird and do wonder if there's some shenanigans... ha! Well, that wouldn't be a surprise...

Help me out here Clinton supporters!! Tell me I can trust her and she'd be trustworthy!
