I think that Hillary might win the Democratic nomination and then lose the general election.

Trump appeals to voters in the South and poorly educated voters in many other places.

But if he wins, California will be extremely unhappy. We like our diversity. We are diverse. We were campaigning for Bernie at an event in our area and got into a discussion with a guy who said he was worried about immigration. What a surprise he had when we pointed out that my husband is also an immigrant.

Trump does not realize how many toes he steps on with his immigrant-bashing. I think that a large portion of the population in California is made up of either immigrants or the children of immigrants.
