    http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/07/25/on-most-issues-sanders-primary-supporters-further-from-gop-voters-than-clinton-backers/The voters who backed Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primaries differed from those of Hillary Clinton on several major issues. But in most cases, these gaps were dwarfed by the gulf between the backers of either Democratic candidate and Republican voters.

    On nearly all issues where Clinton and Sanders backers diverged, they did so because Sanders supporters were more to the left of Clinton supporters and further away from the opinions of GOP voters.

    Guess it depends on which poll you believe. 22 percent of Sanders supporters say they're going for Trump and 18 percent say they're going for Johnson. At most, she can get 60 percent, and that's not even factoring in protest votes and people that are just not going to cast votes.


    These numbers seem far more realistic, especially considering Crooked Hillary's latest e-mail scandal.

    http://www.people-press.org/2016/07/25/in-clintons-march-to-nomination-many-democrats-changed-their-minds/90% of ‘consistent’ Sanders supporters favor Clinton over Trump

    Hillary Clinton led Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination in every Pew Research Center survey conducted throughout the party’s primaries. But many Democratic voters vacillated in their candidate support throughout this period.

    Today, however, overwhelming shares of all Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters – including 90% who consistently supported Sanders for the nomination – back Clinton in the general election against Donald Trump.

    Even as Clinton led throughout, the share of voters who remained consistently loyal to her over the course of the election was far smaller than her overall support in any single survey. By April 2016, near the end of the Democratic primaries, Clinton was named the first choice of 46% of Democratic voters in an open-ended question about their nomination preferences. But only 29% had consistently named her their first choice in December 2015, March 2016 and April 2016. And even fewer, just 15%, had consistently named her their first choice going all the way back to March 2015.

    This report and accompanying interactive is based on a longitudinal analysis of the primary and general election preferences of Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters in Pew Research Center’s nationally representative American Trends Panel. This approach provides the ability to examine voters’ choices at an individual level over the course of six surveys conducted throughout 2015 and 2016. For more detail, see Methodology used in this report....

    Despite a sometimes contentious primary process, support for Clinton in the general election is high among even the 20% of Democratic voters who consistently backed Sanders through the primary and caucus season: Among this group, just 8% prefer Trump in the general election, while 90% favor Clinton. (The survey was mostly completed before Sanders announced that he would support Clinton on June 24.)...

    Would someone bring Metta some asprin please.

    Yeah, Manafort is as creepy as fuck as Trump. He strikes me as one of those guys who commits suicide right before being brought to justice.

    Meanwhile (more smelling salts for Metta!)

    http://www.cnbc.com/2016/07/26/Bernie-or-bust crowds have demonstrated outside the Democratic National Convention and booed on the floor of the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, but former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said history shows most Sanders supporters will fall in line.

    "Will we get 100 percent of the Sanders supporters? No. But I remember when we left Denver in 2008, only 60 percent of Hillary supporters said they would vote for Barack Obama," the Democrat told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Tuesday.

    Independent polls taken before and after the August 2008 convention in Denver, Colorado, generally support that claim.

    Two June 2008 polls cited by fact-checking website Politifact showed roughly 60 percent of Hillary Clinton's backers said they would vote for Obama in November.

    A Gallup Poll taken after the convention said 81 percent of Clinton supporters planned to cast their ballot for Obama, up from 70 percent just prior to the event.

    Rendell recalled Clinton campaigned vigorously for Obama throughout the fall, and the vast majority of her supporters voted for him.

    Similarly, he noted, Sen. Bernie Sanders offered a full-throated endorsement of Clinton on Monday at this year's convention.

    "I think we'll get over 90 percent of the Sanders supporters," Rendell said.

    Most Sanders supporters are going to vote for the Green Party candidate.
