You're just spitballin' on a lazy Saturday. I'll stick with simplistic and inaccurate.
    So.. Just a crazy coincidence I guess

    I'm not saying that there are not racial trends in voting. I think the Dems will have a clear advantage in the future, but for a variety of reasons. But I think to say that it is demographics alone is simplistic and inaccurate. 35% of the US voting population are white women. That is roughly equal to the black and hispanic voting populations combined. So, alienating white women at the current rate the GOP seems to be delivering is a change factor at least equal to and perhaps greater than racial voting trends and not covered by the "racial headcount" theory.

    Maybe so, but to actively fight against Clinton or in some cases even vote for Donald Trump is to be short sighted. Sorry your candidate got cheated but what we have now is not a better solution than Clinton. I worry that Bernie's camp will be a polarizing one yet again.

    The DNC needed to be taught a lesson. I think to not fight against Clinton and leave the DNC unscathed would have been incredibly short sighted.

    Well, yea I don't justify their actions, just the fact they had a reason to be upset.

    But honestly, I know a lot of people who didn't vote rather than vote HRC.

    If they throw up Biden, they obviously didn’t learn.
