By November most of the hotheads will have cooled down and will vote for their party's nominee.
Under normal presidential election, I would agree, but this year is usual. I don't think the old models are very effective anymore to predict voter behavior this year. All the Brexit models were wrong. All the Rep models and predictions were wrong. Now, things are coming apart for the Democrats. The polls are equally been up and down, just all over the place.

Cruz supporters seemed to have went over to Trump at least in my area. Funny, half the town was for Trump the other half for Cruz.......Cruz won in the state, but now the tow groups have come together and are voting Trump. Its Cruz who didn't get it!


You are correct its all over the place. Dem officials are certainly the ones stuck on slavery, savages and thinking a women is the answer to all their problems, except Sanders people and BLM, they are certainly the angry ones, not voting for Hillary. Many are leaving the party and voting for Trump.

Hard to argue with that. It's all true enough.

The Progressive Wing of the Democratic Party have been crapped on constantly for like 4 decades now, and I think they're ready to cash in their loyalty points.

here's my new theory. bernie's supporters are as soft as he is, they'll come crawling back in a month or two and beg hillary to accept them back. they're ALL voting for hillary, every last one of them.

they're spineless just like their hero.

They'll likely fall in line because they'll quickly enough realize that the only alternative is..... Trump.

I'm disappointed with Bernie too, but it remains clear to anyone paying attention that he doesn't support the Hildebeast but rather he sees Trump as the greater of two evils. His supporters surely know this.

This is clearly a lie. According to CNN and MSNBC, this convention could not be going better.
