There is an old saying that we live in interesting times and seeing the HRC machine self destruct is definitely one of this years most interesting events!

Hilley and her supporters, or should we say her CTR's have been driving away Sen Sanders supporters for months. But the recent Guciffer 2 and 3 dumps have clenched it, there will be very little unity in the Democratic party. The polls are changing very quickly and it does not look good for Hilley and her corporate handlers!



Democrats worry about low Clinton support among Sanders backers


The June poll, conducted by Bloomberg Politics among likely general election voters, found that only a little over half of Sanders backers -- 55 percent -- actually planned to vote for Clinton.

Another article has recent polls since the Guciffer 2 & 3 hacks shows more trouble for the HRC machine.


A recent poll of over 21,000 Bernie Sanders supporters shows that just seven percent of them would ever vote for Hillary. It was previously predicted that only 25 percent of Bernie Supporters would refuse to vote for Clinton. Now, nearly all Sanders supporters are angry with Hillary and the DNC. This comment in The Ralph Retort, explains what is brewing.


“The reality is that unity of Democratic party is in extreme peril. Leaked documents from the hack stand as proof that the DNC had been planning on Hillary Clinton to be the party’s nominee since long before a single vote was even cast. The Bernie or bust camp was already growing, especially after massive scandals like the ‘secret win’ controversy— but now gasoline has been dumped on the fire, and the buster movement is growing ever stronger by the minute.”

I know who I will not be voting for!

I doubt it matters much. They may not vote for Hillary, but they are probably not going to vote for Trump either.

Good year for Trump and Johnson.

It's only going to get better for Trump as time goes.

We already know he's a racist and sexist and those terms are beginning to wear thin on the public

Another attack and Trump gets more gay voters and women as people realize being the victim isn't the way to go anymore.

Yep. Bernie Sanders supporters are enabling the rise of Fascism in America. It's exactly what happened in Germany when the Weimar government was split between Socialists and Christian Democrats. Their inability to create a unified front allowed Hitler to come to power while polling at only 40% of the electorate. Wake up!

As time has passed, Trump has sunk lower in the polls and his favorability has declined.

Considering that Democrats tend to show-up for presidential elections, Trump's future does not look good.

You would be surprised. Many of Sanders' supporters are politically naïve. They will vote for "change," even if they do not know what the "change" will look like.

Many of Sen Sanders supporters have said 4yrs of Trump would be better than 8yrs of Hillary, but then many of Sanders supporters are Independents who left the Democratic party because of it's currently being corporate owned!

In my experiences, I can say you are correct. Many of the Sanders supporters are naive and not politically savvy. But I can only hope that they are not dumb enough to vote for Trump after supporting Sander's platform.

If people supported sanders for the reasons they say they did, they would not be heavily in favor of hillary.
Against trump yes, for Hillary no.

I suppose that is proof of them not being politically savvy.

Oh well.

Nice personal attack, but I fail to see it's relevance.

If a Sander's supporter does not like the Democrats because of their corporate ties, why would they say 4 years of a corporate stooge would be better than Hillary?

That makes no sense.

Any Sanders supporter who votes for Trump never fully understood Sanders' message to begin with and were really just bandwagoning him. I say this as a Sanders supporter. If you aren't going to vote for Hillary, fine, but you better either abstain from voting or vote for Gary Johnson because Trump represents the exact opposite of what Sanders stood for.

It could be as simple as Trump has not hired Correct the Record trolls to insult them, nor has cheated his way to the nomination, nor did he run the state department to grift money, to mention just a few things.

Oh, now I get what you were saying. You were implying I was a paid troll. How childish. Guess that goes with being naive and not being politically savvy.

Anyway, if a Sanders supporter would vote for Trump for those reasons, it just shows that it wasn't Sander's platform that they were interested in.

What you describe is voting against someone, not standing on principle or strength of message.

While your statement looks good on the surface, here are a few things that should be considered:

Sanders supporters actually include many right wingers that were supportive of Sen Sanders for his honesty and his commitment to fight corruption. They were willing to overlook his left leaning policies because of this.

Many Sanders supporters fear HRC's centrists idealogy and feel that she like Bill will work with the right to push corporate agendas and keep us in a continuous state of war.
