I've seen Bernie stickers & signs. I have not seen any Clinton signs.

Sanders is NOT a Democrat, he isn't loyal to the Democrat party. No one really knows what Sanders intentions are.

Yes he is. He is smart enough to realize what is happening though. He truly believes the things he says and he knows if he gives in to Hillary that everything he believes goes with it.

I do think he could make things very difficult for himself should he wish to continue his Senate career. Looks like he really doesn't care.

The only bridges being burned are by the DNC. They will be losing these mostly young voters who feel they were cheated by the establishment which is protecting crooked Hillary.
Burning bridges amongst his peers ~ which presumably he will want to continue to work with after the election.


His starry eyed followers truly believe he is a Saint.

Same here in Indiana. It's been Bernie/Trump the whole way. I don't know where the Clinton folks are but I don't know any.

The (D)'s need Bernie more than Bernie needs the (D)'s. Without his vote it becomes harder for the (D)'s to take back the Senate.

There were all sorts of Cruz signs in public. I've yet to see one Cruz bumper sticker. You see Bernie and Trump stickers and signs everywhere. Cruz only won a handful of super religious evangelical counties in northeast Indiana.

Don't fool yourself. Clinton is not nearly as unpopular as the Republicans would like to believe.

In many ways, the arc of her political career is similar to Ronald Reagan's. Reagan thought his year was going to be 1976. but he was off by one campaign. The same is true with Hillary. 2008 wasn't her time, but 2016 seems to be.

Just as Reagan used his first defeat to build his following in the years that followed, so did Clinton. Just as he learned where to harden or soften his positions, so did she.

If Clinton is as weak as so many hope, why has her support remained so solid for so long?

Your post sounds like whistling in the graveyard to me. I heard a lot of that same whistling here on C-D back in 2012, when conservatives swore up and down Obama would never be re-elected because he was so unpopular.
It didn't work then and isn't working now.

What good are they? Contrary to your arguments the data shows that Trump isn't pulling in any new voter nor is he expanding the republican base. Sorry but you have been fooling yourself an fruitlessly tring to pulll the wool over every else's eyes.
A new study gives a few more signs of what ails the GOP, and could ail Trump come November. Not only do the party's voters doubt whether they can fall in line behind their front-runner, but they are widely divided on an array of issues (and therefore candidates). And while it's true that Democrats get angry from time to time about who's more "progressive" or could better "stand up to Wall Street," new data from the Pew Research Center suggest that the problem of bringing together a big swath of diverse viewpoints is much bigger for Republicans right now.
