2. An interesting take coming out of the exit polls

"MORE FORMER REPUBLICANS VOTE FOR SANDERS - 1:25 P.M.
Scott and Phyllis Singleton said they usually vote Republican, but they went to Pendleton Street Baptist Church in Easley to cast their ballots Saturday for Bernie Sanders.

Their son, Hunter, a graduate student at Winthrop, came home to vote for the first time also for the senator from Vermont.
Phyllis, a 50-year-old homemaker, said she likes Sanders, Because hes for everybody. All people. For the little man.
For her husband, it was more of a vote against Hillary Clinton and against Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.
Im scared of Trump. Im scared of his politics. He never really tells you anything, the 56-year-old diesel mechanic said. Its just rhetoric, its nothing concrete. Im just scared of what he might do.

As far as Sanders goes, he said, I like Bernie, hes a nice man. But more so I voted to keep Hillary out. I dont want Hillary in. She has a lot of power, and Im tired of the Clintons being in politics."

I never stopped to think about the Republicans scared to death of trump but hate Hillary.

5. More of the GOP sabotaging the HRC campaign. They really want to run against Bernie. nt

6. I thought as much too but I'm not so sure now.

A common theme coming out of the exit polls is the fact that they are scared of Trump and yes, hate Hillary as well.

9. Or perhaps they see him as the best candidate

I know my republican relatives sincerely do. I realize that doesn't fit your narrative.

7. I don't want to feel disappointed ...

 

So I'll quietly keep a small bit of hope ... A skosh of hope ....
