Live Mini Super Tuesday Democratic Exit Poll Analysis

Source: ABC News

Free trade: Sanders took advantage of economic worries in his surprise victory in Michigan last week. Among other results, 57 percent of Democratic voters said free trade takes more jobs than it creates, and Sanders won them over Clinton by 15 percentage points, 56-41 percent. Today, in preliminary exit poll results, a similar number in Ohio likewise see free trade as a negative, vs. fewer than half in Illinois, Missouri and North Carolina. Worth keeping an eye on as the night unfolds is how these anti-free-traders vote, especially in Ohio.


...
Attributes: Sanders also was helped in Michigan by the fact that six in 10 voters picked either honesty or empathy as the most important candidates attributes in their vote, higher than the average so far. In today’s states, more than half are focused on those traits, peaking at six in 10 in Illinois and Missouri and bottoming out at fewer than half in Florida. (Clinton, for her part, has dominated in previous contests among those focused on experience or electability.)
...
Honesty: That said, electability has not been a key voter concern, and Clinton’s been vulnerable on the question of honesty and trustworthiness. Across today’s states, only six in 10 Democratic voters in preliminary exit poll results describe Clinton as honest and trustworthy, while eight in 10 say that about Sanders. Sanders is considered more honest in all five states today, including by a wide margin in Missouri, but also by double-digits in Ohio.

3. Yup. That article nails exactly why we need to nominate Sanders.

He's vastly more electable in a general than Hillary will be. He still might not win, but at least he'd have a shot. Clinton supporters are deluding themselves about how well she'll do outside of the ever-dwindling base of actual party Democrats.

4. Yes!

"Hillary Clinton's main advantage with regards to winning the nomination is not public sentiment, but instead, due to unelected superdelegates whose purpose, according to DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is to suppress grassroots candidates in favor of the establishment choice. And it looks like they will have their way: As a result of the superdelegates voting almost unanimously for Hillary Clinton, often in clear defiance of the popular will of their states, the math does indeed look bleak for Bernie Sanders to win the Democratic nomination. Barring a major grassroots revolt, Hillary Clinton will seize the nomination. And she will lose to Donald Trump."

2. Love how ABC spins the "free-trade" issue

"Voters who say that trade with other countries costs U.S. jobs"

Wrong. It's not trade that costs jobs and that's not what we're saying (we being those who believe that NAFTA cost U.S. jobs) Its so-called "free trade" agreements that destroyed our successful manufacturing and trade policy that worked since the 1700's.

ABC would rather associate very rational people with a dumb straw man statement.
